Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were met by Luis at the pier and spent seven hours touring Ballestas islands by boat and then Paracas National Reserve. It was a great day. We had opted for a private tour so I could do some photography and Luis knew right where to take us. The experience was flawless from start to finish. We highly recommend this company.

Excellent tour of the islands with both Spanish and English. You really get a good close-up of the wildlife and the boat is decently sized. Friendly tour hosts.

The boat ride is smooth and no splashing onto passengers. Seals poke their heads out of the water looking at you. We saw Humboldt penguinos on the islands and dozens of seals eating anchovies. The water and rock formations were beautiful and you can take up close pictures of “the chandelier/cactus” marking.

Several of us off the Volendam arranged for a tour out to the Ballestas Island and Paracas Reserve-we had a wonderful trip. The company is friendly and professional to deal with and exceeded all our expectations. The boat ride out and around the islands was great and the Pisco Sour to follow afterwards was even better.

We booked a trip to the " Band of Holes" and Tambo Colorado with Lucio and it was amazing! Our guide Diego showed up ahead of time and totally wowed my wife and I with his knowledge and enthusiasm for both areas. We learned so much and had a great day doing so! We highly recommend Lucio and Diego for any of your adventures in Peru.

This was an excellent and well-organized tour, by boat to the islands for viewing of sea birds and sea lions, followed by a drive through the Paracas nature reserve. We were met right off the cruise ship, and returned in plenty of time to reboard our ship. The guide was very informative and her English was easily understood. This tour was as good as any offered by the cruise ship, we saw more sights, and it was much cheaper than those offered by the ship. Highly recommended.

We were on a cruise ship and took the Ballestas Islands and Paracas Nature Reserve tours with this company. Liz was our guide and she was very good. They picked us up at the harbor and it was very convenient. Our group was on our own boat for the ride to and around the Ballestas Islands. It was great to see all the birds, sea lions, etc on the rocks. On the way to the islands we went close to the Candelabra on the cliff. After the boat tour we then went to the Paracas Nature Reserve. We went to several different locations within the Reserve. All in all - it was a great tour.

What a fab day with Lucio yesterday. Strongly suggest a cruise excursion with South Americans Secrets. He promptly picked us up at cruise terminal in an air con van and went for a boat tour to the Islands. The sea lions and birds were more plentiful than some days on our Galapagos cruise. His boat captain got us into multiple viewing areas. We were right up next to the sea lions and birds. Fab experience. After returning to dock we looked around small town then did a van tour to all the highlights of the Paracas National Reserve. This too was fabulous. If we had taken ship tours it would twice the price and a larger group. We are glad we had the pleasure of visiting both. What made the tour was Lucio s was his knowledge and charisma. Please do not hesitate to book. A tour we will never forget
