Lima's Shantytown Tour
Peggy D
, Sep 2018
This was a very informative tour about Lima's numerous shantytowns--how they came about, what they look like, and visiting one of them. We also visited a school with the friendliest students and a mercado (market). I was the only one on the tour and my driver; tour guide, Jordan; and his assistant, Valeria, were all excellent.

PARACAS - ICA - HUACACHINA - The unique oasis of Ámerica | Dec 2018
Maria, our tour guide, was amazing. Attentive, but also gave us space to enjoy the experience. The islands were beautiful, but get ready for the smell of gas from the boat and bird poop. Huacachina dune buggy ride was a blast, sand boarding is lying on your stomach not standing. Still fun, but sand in every crack! The wine tour was great, our group ended buying a bottle to share. Overall a fantastic time, well worth the drive!

CARAL, the Oldest Civilization in América | Sep 2018

First, kudos to my terrific and very knowledgeable guide Maria and exceptionally patient driver Julio. Most of the travel is on the Pan American highway which is in very good shape as it travels through many communities and hugs the coastline heading north. Somewhat strange was seeing mostly luxury sleeper travel buses and trucks with very few cars. The last 5 Kilometers are very difficult as the road when paved is terribly rutted for almost the entire distance. The tour involves lots of walking and is very limited for physically challenged assistance. I strongly recommend long pants and long sleeve shirt as the area is hot, dry desert environment sitting above a lush green valley. Be prepared for a very long day and an amazing experience. By the way, the photo used for the tour listing was either taken by a helicopter or a drone.
