Next door to our hotel, Emotion arranged our sightseeing for us, taking us to the dock and arranging our boat trip to the Ballestas Islands, where we saw penguins and sealions as well as seemingly millions of birds. Once back on dry land, we were taken by bus to the Reserve to see the excellent museum, a drive round the beaches to see the beauty spots and lunch in Lagunillas where we watched the pelicans. Lunch was a bit overpriced, but then the restaurant is in the middle of nowhere, relying on tour groups for custom, and we were given a good table with an excellent view of the bay.

We had an excellent experience with Emotion Tour. They were very reliable and professional. Carlos met us at our hotel and took us to the boat for the tour of the Ballestas Islands. He then arranged for Julio to take us for a private tour of the National Reserve in the afternoon. This part of the day was particularly special. Julio was incredibly patient and knowledgeable. He has a very gentle but fun loving manner and is great with kids and adults alike. One final point which illustrates just how nice Emotion/Carlos are. On our car journey back to Lima (arranged through Carlos) I very foolishly left my bank card in an ATM at a local petrol station. When I realised (an hour later in the journey) what I'd done, the driver rang Carlos who went 40 minutes out of his way to drive to the petrol station to see if my card was still there. Although we spoke to Carlos later, we never saw him again so he did this knowing there was no way we could tip him or repay him for his kindness. I would highly recommend Emotion and Carlos and Julio in particular.

Arriving with bus we ran into this guy with long hair, who offered to walk us to our hotel. On the way he offered to arrange our trip to Ballestos, which we knew, we were going to see.

We were a bit sceptical, but he was really convincing. Alfredo ended up arranging not only Ballestos and the national park, but also our trekking trip in Colca Canon from Arequipa and our transport further on to Puno - where he recommended a place to stay.

Everything was great, and we can only recommend Alfredo to other travellers.

We ran into Alfredo as we were leaving the bus stop in Paracas and he offered us a deal we couldn't refuse. His ties with Trip Advisor made me feel comfortable as well. The experience exceeded expectations. The Dune Buggy was top notch and we had a cool driver that made it even more fun. This company delivered as promised and was always on time. Definitely using them again.

we started our trip in Lima, where we had a good wellcoming by Carlos beacuse we did the booking before. After we were moved to Pisco, we bought the tour full day wich includes: Ballestas Islands, National reserve. We asked Carlos to get it fast because the time. there were some inconvenients, but significantly. After that he sugested Ica, with Huacachina Oasis, well we did it. This and all the tours we did was a glad experience.... we just can recomend it. Those guys are very nice and respectful. Just one problem... the police at the higway intented to get unlegal money from us... very corrupt guys. The police here are still no good.
