Highly recommended guide

My wife and I were very impressed by our guide Samuel. Very knowledgeable, respectful, great sense of humor. He was very helpful in dealing with high altitude sickness we experienced providing not just frequent breaks to catch the breath but by sharing personal remedies. Guide to dream about

Uros visit
Monica_B
, May 2022
We visited 1 uros island and everything was so not organized. We waited 1 hour to board us. Then we went to the uros island , yes it was interesting to see the family and ask them questions but then the 2nd optional reet boat was like a lot of people on the small boat. The group was huge so on the Taquile island the guide told us to go with out saying where to wait. He was not explaining like the other guides we saw on the way. We had a person for 2 of us who was not even with us all the time and 0 explanation from him. It would be nice if you improve your time management and have time for pictures and if the group is big then 1 person at the front and 1 at the back to control the group. .

The trip was very good. The stop at Uros to see how the people lived was interesting and enjoyable although a bit touristy. Although I was the only English speaking passenger Joseph was very even in the time he spent explaining things and from time to time he sat with me to give me more detail. Taquile Island was also interesting and the scenery was beautiful. Lunch was included and at a hill side restaurant and I had the best trout meal I can ever remember.

Outside the fact that the boat goes faster on the return trip, it is not worth the money it costs. The boat was dirty and old, the seats not comfortable. The only good thing were the guides that knew their subject.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: First of all thank you very much for coming to Puno - Peru and I hope you are very well. Please be aware, the service that you took was by speed boat, which is why the return to Puno was direct and fast - the speedboat tour ends at approximately 3:30PM and all our boats have the same type of seats. We apologize if you experienced that the boat was dirty but we will ensure this doesn't happen in the future. We hope to see you again soon, Inca Lake Team

Loved it! Yes, it was touristy and, yes, they had a lot of items to sell, but it was still fascinating to learn how they made these floating islands and listen to their history and culture. We took a small boat to another island where they sold coffee and pastries. You must try one of the cone shaped ones I have pictured. Be prepared for a long, steep hike when you arrive at Taquile Is., but the view from the top is amazing! We strolled through the village, toured some of the shops and learned about the local attire and the significance of which way the tassel is worn on the men's hats. We had a delicious lunch before boarding our boat for the return to Puno.
