Unique and fun adventure. The stop on one of the Uros Islands was very interesting - such gentle people! The overnight home stay on Amantani was special, and the hike up to the temples of Pacha Tata and Pacha Mamá was challenging and beautiful. Excellent two days, with fabulous authentic and homemade food.

Everything was very good, I would only recommend the families with whom you stay to be more open to tell us about their lifestyle. They take good care of you but they don't really live with you, it's like staying in a bed & breakfast and what you expect from this experience is to learn more about their way of life.
