A group of 3 of us did the day trip from Lima. We were picked up at 4:15 am (promptly) and drove to the Paracas dock. Our driver only spoke Spanish, but we were able to communicate. A coordinator who spoke English was in the other car. The driving was a little reckless at times (as it was with all... More

We had a long layover in Lima on a flight to Punta Arenas, and were hopeful we could get a few hours tour in the city since we weren't going to have time during our trip to visit again. Mystery Peru does a tour that leaves right from the airport, designed for layovers. What a treat! There's luggage storage at... More

We booked a tour in a group but it turned out to be a private tour with a (nice) guide in a private taxi. Due to the horrible traffic it took us 90 minutes to get from miraflores to the old town and the same to get back. So we had 90 minutes left for the city center by night... More

The Mystery Peru two day/one night trip to Ica, Huacachina, Ballestas Island and Paracas Reserve far exceeded my expectations and was worth every penny. We had private transport from Lima and I could not say enough positive things about our driver Ricardo. Although he did not speak English, and we did not speak Spanish, we were able to communicate. He... More

Mystery Peru was simply amazing - especially our guide, Juan Carlos who got us to the top of this 2070m high sand dune after an almost 4 hour hike! Many people don't make it - and Mystery Peru warned us about that - so it was especially rewarding when we did. Our guide was simply amazing and encouraged us (aka... More

I have decided to book this trip for 2 persons after a thorough on-line research. I found this package quite expensive (about 450 USD per person) but in the end, I feel that it was worth it, compared to all the hustle and difficulties we have avoided if doing this trip on our own. First of all, it turned out... More

We hired mystery peru for a tour of the Larco and Anthropology Museum. There was a power failure at the Anthropology Museum, but our driver worked hard to find a good alternative and we ended up at the Huaca Pullana pyramid, savig the tour. The driver was polite and helpful.

Went to Peru for business and had a day to plan trip so a colleague and I decided to take a day trip to Huacachina. It was an experience for sure! It is a 3-4 hour drive from Lima to the town of Ica where the tour takes place. During the drive we made one pit stop for a bathroom... More

We booked the flight over the Nasca lines. They were very organized and easy to deal with. They had someone pick us up in the morning to take us to the airport. The flight was short but an incredible experience and difficult to document but worthwhile! We were then taken back to our hotel. We definitely enjoyed the flight over... More
