    Amazing stay!!

    We had an amazing stay at Luis and Victoria’s bed and breakfast! They are very warm and kind people. They helped us arrange a wine tour and to go to Huacachina for the sand dunes. We also booked a desert tour with Luis which was a highlight of our trip in Peru so far! The tour was a whole day, once in a life time experience we highly recommended it! Luis is very knowledgeable and was able to easily navigate the desert. We would strongly recommend anyone to stay here it was an absolutely lovely experience!!!

    The best tours in Peru

    We didn’t stay in the B&B but we took two private tours with Luis: half day in the desert with sandboarding and wine at the sunset, full day in the desert on the way to Canyon de Los Perdidos. Tours are perfeclty organized and customizable. You go into areas off the beaten track by tourists, this allows you to live a unique experience. On the way you do not meet anyone else, so you spend perfect hours just with your group.
    Thanks to Luis’ knowledge of the area and driving skills you always have the feeling of safety.
    Luis is also very discreet and give you time to experience the beautiful nature, he is also so perfectly organized with food (really good) and technology devices (drones, cameras).

    If you're going to Ica or Huacachina, stay here!

    Luis’s place is amazing! The house is spacious, the pool is so serene and picturesque, and he can arrange almost any tour you want to do in the area – from riding dune buggies on the sand dunes of Huacachina to checking out the red sand beaches in Paracas to (best of all) a pisco tour by Luis himself. My dad and I had a great stay here. It was nice to have a trusted local for recommendations (including a nearby pizza place) when we were finally ready to chill out in Peru. We came after visiting Lima, Cusco, and doing the Inca Trail together, so this was such a pleasant and relaxing surprise! (Sitting by the pool for a day was much needed – and he even brought us juice!) His place is safe and very laid back. We also took him and his wife Victoria up on a multi-course dinner and pisco sours one night and the food was wonderful! Don’t miss breakfast either! They are friendly, fun to talk to, and happy to help you with anything you need!

    A home from home, amazing place to stay and perfect day trips

    Our stay with Luis and Victoria in July was very special. A home from home.
    We were picked up by Luis at the bus station, to take us to their house. The house is so beautiful, and very clean. We were offered a welcome drink, and looked at the schedule for the next couple of days. Luis would show us around the region, and you can tell that he really knows the region very well, and he is eager to share his knowledge.

    [..] We visited Huacachina which was so much fun for us and our kids. The second day Luis took us to the Canon de les Perdidos, which was very nice. But the stop we made underway in the rocky surroundings of the desert, was maybe even more beautiful and one of the most spectacular things we’ve seen in our three weeks in Peru. Wow. [..]
