Full description
Depart from Puno on the first day of the tour and head to the floating islands of Uros and marvel at the stunning scenery all around. Next, enjoy a 3-hour motorboat journey to the Amantani island and see local families running down the hill to welcome you. Meet your designated host family and immerse yourself in their traditional culture and way of life. Enjoy a typical lunch with the family made from natural local products and participate in intercultural activities until dinner time. After dinner, watch a traditional show with your family before spending the night at their home. On day two of the tour start with an early breakfast with your host family. After an emotional goodbye, it's time to depart to Taquile Island a traditional Quechua speaking community, located at the heart of the Lake Titicaca. Admire the beautiful harbor of Taquile and then walk up along a narrow path to the center of the island. Along the walk, gaze upon the breathtaking natural landscapes including the nearby Bolivian mountain range. Once you arrive at the top of the hike, listen to your local guide share stories and anecdotes about traditional life on Taquile. Later on, enjoy some free time to wander around and explore then relax at a local restaurant for lunch. Finally, descend to the harbor and hop aboard the boat back to Puno.

1 star less for the difficult pick up at our hotel and for the uros islands. Staging, sale of objects and "obligation" to take a boat ride. Starting with that, we quickly want this circus to stop. Finally, the reception on Amantani Island was very good. It was less touristy contrary to what one could expect after uros. Beautiful sunset and folk dance, we had a great time. Taquile island is very pretty and looks like amantani. The excursion is therefore to be done but it is necessary to disregard the uros islands.

A truly great experience! Welcomed by the inhabitants of Uros who explained to us how the islands are built, we then continued our journey on Amantani where we stayed with the locals. A truly extraordinary experience. Do not hesitate to ask to share your meals with the locals because they will not dare! A small party had even been organized. We then ended our adventure on Taquile. To do absolutely!

Veramente un esperienza indimenticabile..spettacolari Uros le isole di canne.. nonostante le raccomandazioni della guida sulla vita semplice e basica delle famiglie del posto su amantani, abbiamo dormito a casa della signora Gladys molto meglio di molti hotel durante il resto del viaggio..pranzo cena e colazione semplice ma abbondante, zuppe di verdure, riso, formaggio, pancake.. buonissime.. la sera su amantani la comunità fa una festa con tutti i turisti vestiti con abiti tipici.. indimenticabile
