After hotel pickup in Puno, cross the Bolivian border in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and arrive at the colorful village of Copacabana. Take in the gorgeous sights of the main square before venturing to the marina to board the awaiting catamaran. Marvel at the boat’s impressive interior and sip refreshing drinks from the onboard bar (own expense) as you cross the sparkling water of Lake Titicaca. 

Circumvent the world’s highest lake and experience the 12,500-foot (3,800-meter) altitude as you sail towards the magnificent mound of Sun Island (Isla del Sol). According to legend, it was upon the idyllic island the Sun God commended his children to commence Inca civilization. 

Approach the sacred site and immediately set out to explore the atmospheric ruins of the Inti Wata complex; descend to the subterranean depths of the underground museum site, admire agricultural terraces and discover a fascinating range of diverse flora and fauna. Explore the exquisite elevations and fertile farmland of the island independently, until you begin the return journey to Copacabana. 

Enjoy a flavorsome lunch served onboard the glamorous catamaran, and then relax for the remaining journey time back to Puno.

    Great cruise and tour of the Sun Island. Several bonuses were unexpected, such as a great museum tour on Sun Island. Super-friendly and helpful staff. FYI: I was unaware of the fees for US Citizens for me, 160 to receive a Bolivian Passport. Also, make sure that the staff know to take you back to Puno -- the default destination for this tour is La Paz, Bolivia.

    This tour was very expensive for what actually happened. We had a three hour drive to Copacabana, Bolivia. the only real tour was of a church there. I was not interested in the tour, and even though I went along with it, I was very allergic to the flowers in the church. The catamaran part of our tour was late -the boat was not there. Our market 'tour' was a quick walk through a couple of streets, with no time to stop and shop. The catamaran was lovely, and the service became very good. I enjoyed the little that I saw of Isla del Sol. I would recommend changing the itinerary on this tour. I would skip the reed boat, which most of us in our group had already done at Uros, and instead make time to actually tour the Temple of the Sun. It was not the tour's fault that the day we went to Bolivia, there was a strike in Bolivia. It made us a couple of hours late. (a 14 hour day) I highly recommend also, that Viator offer the option which some other guests chose, of staying on the catamaran overnight so that they could see Isla del Sol completely. I would have loved to do that, and I think that this is the main reason I am only giving this a 3 star. All of the options are not offered. Saying all of this, I am grateful to have had the chance to get to the Isla del Sol, with help at the border.

    The worst trip I've ever. A 2 hour bus ride to start with bus transfer, no consistency in respect to guests, loud, obnoxious guids that also kept changing... A 1 hour wait and foot walk over the boarder in a terrifying neighbourhood. Then another 1 hour to just get to the catamaran. Don't do it!

    Wow! Amazing! Probably my favorite day on my trip in Peru. I needed to get from Puno to La Paz and I'm so glad I booked the catamaran cruise! Of course there is the option to travel on land via bus, but that's boring! You may as well do a sightseeing cruise and see Lake Titicaca. Sun Island was beautiful and the highlight - it's a bit of a climb to high altitudes, but so worth it. Lunch was great, the catamaran very comfortable and the guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. 5 stars! Thank you!

    From Puno, we travelled to Bolivia to take the Catamaran to Sun Island. The tourguide is very knowledgeable but not boring. We didn't expect to have sandwiches, freshly squeeze juices and snack on our way to Sun Island (11 am). The Island itself was mesmerising... it was so exquisite and breath-taking! we also witnessed an ancient ritual which is quite special. Then we had a lovely ride on their traditional boat. Finally, on our way back to mainland, we had a late lunch (3 pm) that is very delicious. There are only 8 of us in the tour but all of us were properly looked after. The activities, the tour and the food, it's worth every penny.
