On the Quierolo Wine Tasting and Vineyard Tour, you’ll tour one of Peru’s most beautiful and successful vineyards. Besides Peruvian wine, this tour will serve as an educational introduction to Peru’s favorite liquor, pisco. Pisco is a brandy made from grapes, and Quierolo has some of the finest piscos in the country.
Experience distinctly Peruvian food and drink at the Quierolo Vineyard lunch and wine pairing. You'll have the benefit of a sommelier tour guide's expert insight into the production and flavor of locally grown wine and pisco brandy.
Explore a lesser-visited archeological site on this tour. Tambo Colorado is a well-preserved Inca adobe complex in Peru’s Pisco River Valley.
This tour introduces travelers to the vineyards that produce pisco, the clear brandy that serves as a pisco sour's main ingredient. On this tour you’ll see how pisco has slowly evolved into a mainstay of Peruvian bars.
This tour of the Nazca Lines flies over 15 glyphs that were left behind by inhabitants of the Nazca Desert. The Nazca people built these interesting designs between 500 BC and 500 AD. These pictographs are so large that you can only fully appreciate them from above. To this day, it’s a mystery how these ancient people managed to design such enormous geometric figures with such perfectly straight lines.
For the past 12 years, the desert oasis of Huacachina has served as the site of one of the most popular adventure tours in South America: the dune buggy and sandboarding tour. People of all ages - including kids, teenagers, and adults - all visit Huacachina and climb into a 4-wheel-drive dune buggy driven by a professional driver. We can offer this tour as a group tour with other travelers, or privately.
Half the tour is riding in the dune buggy, up and down the dunes at fast speeds. And the other half of the tour is a chance to try the adventure sport of “sandboarding”. This is just like snowboarding, but instead of snow you will be boarding on the fine-grained sand of the desert. If you aren’t athletically talented, no problem! Just lay on your stomach on the board, and go “sand sledding”. This is faster, lots of fun, and doesn’t require any patience or ability.
The dune buggy and sandboarding tour is an amazing thrill ride. But this is more than just a thrill ride: the gigantic sand dunes are beautiful, surreal and mesmerizing. A tour into the desert feels like an “out of this world” experience, almost like visiting the surface of another planet.
