Nice visit to the islands. Discovery of life on the islands, culture, cuisine. Wonderful landscapes. Good organization, no difficulty. What leaves a little perplexed is to meet so many intermediaries for this stay. But they all master the organization. Small flat: the Colonial Plaza hotel in Puno which was not terrible. Very cold, very bad wifi, no window in the room and not crazy breakfast when you are rather sweet.

It was a fantastic tour. Everything was very well organized, excellent guides, good food in the lunches included. How else, there was the bus back. It was of the bed type, but very cramped when people lowered the chairs, making any attempt to go to the bathroom unfeasible. Glad it wasn't my case. Another thing is the lack of respect for others, shown by some passengers, who kept their cell phones on, without muting the sound. But overall, it was well worth it.

Splendid visits, nevertheless, a pity not to have had the schedule of the 2 days more precisely (we had to exchange many messages with the organizer to be informed). In addition, it should be noted that the return to Puno after the excursion on the lake ends around 3 p.m. and not 5 p.m....and the departure for Cusco is only at 10 p.m., i.e. 7 a.m. to wait!!! Finally a transport included, had to wait for us at 5am in Cusco to bring us back to the hotel outside we waited 40 min and the driver was not there .. we had to take a taxi on our own .. Our contact is despite everything remained reachable and found solutions for us...
