Our boat tour with IncaTours was great. The visit to the Uros Islands, reed boat ride, and hike and lunch at Isle de Tuquille were wonderful. We didn't care for Puno because we did not feel safe and it was not a walking town.

When you visit Titicaca on the Peruvian side, go directly to the dock to book the boat tours, they have offices there for all the trips and they're run by the locals from the islands and the money directly goes back to the locals, and the price is waaaay cheaper than you can find in any hotel/hostel or travel agency...

Lake Titicaca is located between Peru and Bolivia. It is situated at a very high altitude, over 3800m above sea level. A truly beautiful and unique lake. The main attraction of the lake are the Uros floating islands and Taquille Island. It is well worth a visit. We got a chance to talk to the natives who live on the... More

I still believe that the best views of the lake are seen from Isla del Sol in Bolivia, but here in Puno it’s really different because of the reeds that go out for miles, that are not seen in Bolivia. It also provides for spectacular scenery and of course the man made Uros Reed Islands which are unique in the... More

A beautiful place to see and visit with the natives who live on the floating islands. The natives welcomes us onto their island and even showed us the inside of their homes. We had a great time and would recommend this to everyone to see.

Lake Titicaca is absolutely stunning. If you want to stay on/tour some of the islands, definitely do it yourself! It is such an easy process, saves you loads of money, and supports the local economy directly. To book a tour of the islands and book your stay with a host family on one of the islands on the lake simply... More
