The trip to Ballestas Islands was great and worthy of a 5, but from there it all went down hill as it is not one tour but two cobbled together. We were told to wait and someone would collect us - and hour later we were collected and had to follow at speed to a battered old bus for the Ballestas Reserve. At the first stop we were given three options, Museum, something else we had to pay for, or flamingos. Most people took the long walk to see the flamingos, and while the tour could not be blamed that they were so far away, even if they had been at the closest point they would have been hard to see. The cathedral rock used to be a sight to see -but a storm a number of years ago destroyed two thirds of it, so it is now just a rock in the sea. The lunch / swimming spot was just awful. However, the desert was interesting, and the guide helpful - but I would not recommend it.
