Full description

Enjoy a boat trip on Lake Titicaca and visit the floating islands of Uros. The inhabitants of the lake are referred to as the Water Tribe and have built their own islands with a local type of sugarcane. Their homes and boats are also made from this material. The next stop is Taquile Island, inhabited by Quechua speakers who have developed unique and effective social systems and hand-weaving techniques. Stop for a typical lunch in the village of Taquile. Take a walk through the hills and archaeological sites of this 6-kilometer-long island before returning to Puno by boat.

The pick-up at the hotel was 25 minutes late on the announced time and I had no news from the organizer, which was a source of concern. After this initial mess, the excursion went very well. The guide Hugo was very professional and provided a lot of interesting information in Spanish and English, as well as relevant practical advice. I particularly enjoyed the visit to the floating island of the Uros. A warm access of its inhabitants to the extraordinary traditional way of life. The explanations on the construction of these artificial vegetal islands and on the simple, harsh, surprising and apparently happy life of the natives in this very special environment were fascinating, and their testimonies very moving. Do not go to Puno without visiting the Uros, you would miss the point!

It was an amazing experience to get in touch with Taquile's island way of living as a coperative social group and in an indepedent way from the mainland country. People there were so kind to show us some of their customs and to serve us delicious sea food :-) we also enjoyed our time spent with some Uros families, who tried to explain us their way of living from fishing, making handicrafts and tourists visiting them. We would like to give many thanks to our guide who was very knowledgable about their customs and he gave us a nice tour in uros and taquile islands!! The boat driver was very good and we were feeling safe during the whole boat trip! We totally recommend this experience! :-)

Very well organized (were picked up from the hotel and brought back again). The visit to Taquile Island and the Uros was very interesting. Our guide, who also spoke very good English, told a lot about the islands and their past. The lunch buffet was very tasty (unfortunately, the cold drinks were not included in the price)
