An wonderful day trip to Tacquile Island and the floating Uros Islands. A real privilege to peep into these wonderful people's isolated way of life for a little while. Nothing in material terms do they have, but are so happy and content with their simple ways they are to be envied. Their dancing and happy smiling faces will stay with... More

My boyfriend and I did a two days homestay tour around Lake Titicaca (with a homestay on Amantani island). The scenery was lovely. With sights like the Uros islands we didn't have the feeling it was "terrible" (like so many others in this forum) - but it was definitely very touristy. You get placed into a circle and someone explains... More

Lake Titicaca was another Inkan story. One of the Inca origin myths had it that the sun god Inti ordered Manco Cápac and Mama Ocllo to emerge from the depths of Lake Titicaca and founded the city of Cuzco. We rode the bus from Cuzco, and it was a long drive to Puno. It took about 9 hours because we... More

Certainly this location is worth the effort to visit. I went with a group of 11 and don't know the details about how it was arranged but enjoyed the visit. The visit was more like 2011 but that option wasn't listed. It was chilly.

This very large lake is home to the Uros Indians where they have built floating islands that they live on. You can take a boat ride over where they will talk about their lifestyle. When you walk around its a bit eery because it springs under your feet and its hard to believe you are walking on water but they... More

The lake was beautiful and still, however the man made islands that were made of reeds were amazing!!.The natives constructed & build the island and their homes out of reeds which grow naturally in Lake Titicaca. And they live on the reed islands!!. Our ride on the reed boat around the reed islands reminded me of the Contiki expedition. A... More

It was excellent way to use the day seeing more places very in expensive way. The bus arrives to Puno at... More
