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!
the guide was nice, and also knew about what he was talking about
The trip to the islands was really great. Both the guide and the captain of the boat did everything possible to make sure we caught the absolute best moments on the island, it was great!
Beautifull place and good structure for the tour.
Fantastic driver and tour guide, wonderful experience. My daughter loved the little seal we were given at the wnd
It was very interesting and the visit was worthwile. It was just a shame for the weather but they can’t help.
Very informative and really got you up close and personal to see all of the different wildlife
because of ypur organization, safety, and guides
Excellent commentary and descriptions by tour guide Sheila; she was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Good tour length, neither too long nor too short; lots of wildlife to see.
Alex the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. He spoke good English and made us feel very welcome. David the boat driver was the best boat driver we have seen - the way he manoeuvred the boat around the rocks was incredible. It was a great experience seeing all the wild life and being out on the water.
