Fantastic tour. Guide was wonderful and very helpful. Could recommend this to anyone.
The guide, Eric , was outstanding and the driver, excellent. Were deceived that after getting off the ship and looking for Viator tour, we had to wait a while before discovering that the tour was provided by Planet tour. Interesting to find out how they cook meals with the Sun power. But the meal itself was no more than ordinary.
Jennifer and Cristian of Planeta Turismo were tops...modified our timing to our wishes and made sure we saw everything important. Viator selected a great tour company and they executed flawlessly. What more could we expect?...nothing! Thank you
We had a wonderful tour with Christopher, who spoke excellent English and was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. We were taken up to the hills, through a beautiful town and to a Pisco factory. Lunch was at a solar powered restaurant and excellent. We would recommend this tour to anyone. We were returned to our ship on time without any trouble.
