Great guide that took us through all the main attraction points in Paracas National Reserve! Would recommend!

Great ride around the Paracas Reserve, with beautiful beaches and sunset. We had plenty of time to take pictures in different spots also to ride off-road. Surely there's no better way to visit the expansive reserve!
Waste of money

This trip is not worthwhile. Contacted tour provider night before to confirm pickup, no response. The day of booking I attempted calling them to no avail. Eventually got in contact via WhatsApp, 15mins past tour start time. Agreed tour would start 1hr past initial start time. Got picked up 1hr 15mins past the initial booking. When tour took place we literally stopped at 3 viewpoints in Paracas Reserve. Tour completed after 1hr 20min rather than the scheduled 2hrs. You would be better to hire a car for the day and you could explore Paracas reserve at your leisure.
As promised!

We had a great time. It was easy to book the trip, everyone was pleasant, everything was on time. - March 2022, as travel and tourism was coming back after Covid.
Fast buggies, cool beaches, and awesome guides

We loved this tour, and Ramon our tour guide was hilarious not to mention a blast to spend the afternoon with! Definitely make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen for this excursion. It is in the heart of deep desert, but surrounded by epic beaches and scenery. Additionally make sure to wear googles and to cover your body with pants and some sort of longer shirt as there is lots of small rocks and the salt playas. You will certainly appreciate eye wear to protect you from both of those as well as the intense sun. You have the chance to go to a beach for about fifteen minutes which was a nice touch. My partner and I truly enjoyed the cool water break from the hot sun. We scheduled our tour for 1pm due to our bus schedule but I would highly recommend the earlier tour or the tour at 3pm instead to avoid the intense heat. Luckily, even with the heat, the water and buggy provide tons of cooling air along the tour. Our guide walked the beach separately from us, but came back with many sea shells and cool rocks for us to enjoy. He also was just an inviting and lovely person to meet. He showed us how there is endless salt crystals under the surface of the dirt there. Really cool to see and enjoy!! He also happily took photos of us, and shared some of his experiences in Paracas. Overall the guides make it easy to meet up through using WhatsApp. They are beyond hospitable and really value their tourists here. Paracas is definitely less traveled area, but everyone in the community is mindful of tourist safety and comfort. I would happily come back to this area again!
Great experience, with poor tour guides.

We booked this tour to experience driving the mini-buggy around Paracas and see the views and it was amazing! Was overall pleased with the experience itself, but we was not pleased with the service of the tour guides. I requested an english tour guide and did not get an english speaking tour guide. No tour guide gave us any information/knowledge about Paracas so we didn't really get to learn much. We got picked up at the Double-tree hotel and brought to the buggy where we then drove the buggy to the reserve to meet up with the other people at the first stop. It was nice, but our tour guide left us and we were told to wait an extra 15mins to join another tour. One of the tour guide's ATV's broke down so we were stopped in the middle of the route for a while. Our buggy turned off a few times and had to be jumped started with the wires. When we ended the tour and was brought back to where we picked up the mini-buggy, no one was there to take us back to the hotel where we was picked up at. we had to flag down a motor-taxi that didn't want to take us that far.
Amazing Experience

Buggy Ride Review
, Oct 2019
The buggy ride and guide were great. Two things cause me to give less than a 5 star review. First, the guide was a very nice person but he did not speak any English. Second, when we were dropped off at the office after our tour there was no one at the office to arrange our return ride to the hotel.

Great afternoon on the National Reserve with Manuel! We had a terrific time on our dune buggies exploring the reserve and watching the sunset! Manuel gave us plenty of details and it was an added bonus that he is a Geologist. We loved all the details of the land formations and fossils. Would highly recommend !!
