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.

We were lucky with our guide Samuel (tour operator Inka Lake): he is VERY helpful, friendly, knowledgeable guide who provided lots of very interesting facts about Uros community.
Great trip

That was a very well organized trip, an excellent guide, Samuel, provided by Inka Lake company who provided lot of details about the life and culture of these communities. Strongly recommended as a unique experience, if you get in this area of Peru.
A great day!

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.

Amazing experience. The tour was very well organized. I strongly recommend taking the Fast boat tour as opposed to tours on a regular boat. Even though the lake is beautiful and the boat is comfortable, doubling the time you spend on a boat would have been painful.

The autos island was an incredible experience! The Taquile Island also had a diff rent feel, npbut the hike with the altitude was quite brutal.
