“Birthday in the desert!”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Went on this unplanned adventure to celebrate 2 of my friend's birthdays and Rafo made our experience so personable and memorable. He was a tour guide who became a friend in a matter of minutes. He is a great teacher and I'll always be grateful to him for teaching us with patience. I had never snowbarded before and thanks to Rafo I now know the techniques and can't wait to go snowboarding since I live in NYC. Rafo, who was a stranger to 3 of us and had never met him before surprised both my friends with a cake at the end of the sandboarding day. My friends are fortunate to have had the opportunity to cut a cake in the desert of Peru thanks to Rafo. He is amazing. I highly recommend this adventure to everyone. I can't wait to go back. :) The beautiful picture was captured by Rafo.

“Best Activity in Peru”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

My experience going Sandboarding with Rafael was incredible! Even though it was just me in the lesson, he picked me up right on time and brought me to the best dunes of the San Bartolo desert. The terrain was very difficult for driving but Rafael handled it with ease. His vast experience made me feel very safe.

Although I already knew how to snowboard pretty well, this was a completely different challenge. With nothing for miles besides sand, it felt like I was on top of the world.

Rafael took many photos/videos for me and told me all about the peaceful lifestyle he lives. I would recommend this experience to anyone!

“One of the Greatest Experiences Ever”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

The greatest time to spend one of your days in Lima! Lots of fun, emotions and good mood! Rafo knows what he is doing and is greatly taking care of you. Even you haven't done sand boarding before - you will and will enjoy it. It's a must to do!

Strongly recommend
