Tour guide was excellent and were very accommodating to my wife and I who know no Spanish. The history was very interesting and you got ample time at each spot

We really enjoyed our tour of the Ballestas islands! Tour left right on time. Boat was clean and the ride was smooth. The tour guide spoke good English and coordinated with the captain to show us the best sites. He gave us time to take pictures and offered to take pictures for us. Really liked the small number of people on the tour especially compared to the tour boats from town which are overcrowded and crammed in with too many people. Nice gesture to offer coffee and a free gift on our return. Would definitely book again with Venturia!

We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our group (just my husband and I, plus one other traveler). It felt like a private tour! Our guide was VERY knowledgeable and passionate about the island. He spoke excellent English and took his time answering all of our many questions. He and the skipper both made sure to stop the boat for notable sights and made sure we understood what we were looking at. I would highly recommend this tour. Great experience!
