“Rapa Nui”
Michael - NV, United States Nov 2018
Just the perfect way to end a 10 week South American tour. The guide, people, and the history were unforgettable. A relaxing way to end the trip.

“3 day Paracas & Nazca lines tour”
Marion - NSW, Australia Oct 2018
The tour was great, the hotel was good & in the center of town. We were picked up in Lima on time & everything was perfect. The flight over the Nazca lines was wonderful & so was the boat trip out to Ballestas Islands. Our guide was good & gave us lots of information on the area & sunset in the desert was beautiful.
