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!
