Our trip to Paracas was among the most interesting in all of Peru - mainly because of Alfredo. The beach town/Ballestes Island tour was okay, but loved how Alfredo rocks this place. He is a dynamic guy eager to make a go of his business and it is impossible to say "no" to him. :) Alfredo will arrange any tour in southern Peru and will craft your experience to your needs/tastes/budget. One of our favourite experiences was when we told Alfedo that we wanted to go to a beach, which is not very attractive in the oily fishing village. He got us a driver, Teuri, who was also amazing despite having NO English. :) We set out for the national reserve which is seemingly ALL sand as far as the eye can see. Then suddenly about 20 minutes into the drive, the sand dunes parted. The ocean scene was breath-taking!!! Limea Beach is an amazing little gem. A guy set up chairs/umbrella for us and Teuri went back to a restaurant to bring us back cold beer - all for a very reasonable price. Wow, what an amazing day!

Wonderful experience. There were 14 in our group. Carlos arranged for us to be picked up at the Port of Callao (we arrived on on the Oceania Cruise Line). The bus was large enough for all 14 passengers and luggage. The bus ride to Paracas was approximately 4 hours. The quality of the tour was first rate. Our guide Eduardo was both knowledgeable and very personable. The National Reserve, Ballestas Islands and the tour of Ica were all interesting and worthwhile! The transportation and administration arrangement were excellent. We felt taken care of from the moment of pickup to the end of our tour.

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.
