About

With a guided tour, get to know the inhabitants that have formed a small community and learn how these islands stay afloat. During the afternoon, visit the island of Taquile and experience the unique culture of the locals.

Excellent Full Day Trip
Apr 2021
It was a fantastic experience visiting the islands of Uros and Taquile on a full ay trip with Planet Odysseys. They were very attentive to our questions and were very helpful from start to the end. The guide was fluent in English and shared many informations about the life and culture on these islands. We could not ask for more. Highly reccomend their company and crew.

Ok, but expensive
Dec 2020 • Solo
Due to COVID, the tour was switched to Amantani, which is fine. However, I was charged $20 more for that and was informed only after the fact.

The Uros part felt rushed and then Amantani was quite quick too. I found a tour to Uros by a native that was only $8 total and was there for 3 hours. On this tour, we were there for tops 40 minutes.

It was an okay tour but definitely not worth the amount that I paid... especially since they were not transparent about it being $60. I wouldn’t have gone if I had known that prior to the tour.

We appreciate your feedback, Brittany. We're disappointed that your experience with us was less than ideal. All full-day tours operate to Uros and Taquile islands. As we discussed when you booked the tour, Taquile island remains closed for tourism due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As per your request, we modified the itinerary which covered Uros and Amantani islands instead of Uros and Taquile. Like we mentioned before the tour, Amantani island is way farther than Uros and Taquile islands. Hence the price is slightly higher than the regular full-day tour. We strive to provide our guests with a comfortable and safe experience which is why due to the ongoing pandemic, we have reduced the capacity of our boats by 50%. We also regret any confusion you experienced with the price of the tour. We have addressed your concerns to the appropriate members of our team so we can ensure a more enjoyable experience in the future.

You too will see through this scam!
Feb 2020
I'd have to say that I was rather disappointed with the overall experience. The Uros floating reed islands should be made into a historical village with actors, rather than pretend that the indigenous people occupying the floating islands actually live there. It is a scam. There is absolutely no reason in 2020 why anyone should be living on floating islands. The motor boats and solar collectors, and TVs inside the make-believe reed shacks were my first clue that the folks on these floating islands are there only to attract tourists and to sell handicrafts, because they make better living off tourists, than their counter parts living on land in Puno. I bought 1 handicraft, a weave depicting Peruvian life with llamas, alpacas, etc., for 120 soles. I bought it because I thought that why not support these people, when I was still led to believe that this is all for real. After the visit and discussing this experience with other tourists, I began to see through this. On top of that, I saw the same wave I purchased for the 120 soles at a gas-station for 45 soles, I was upset at this scam.
What surprised me is that during our 1.5-hour visit of the few shacks on one of the floating islands, we did not see how they fish, how they prepare their food, how they make the reed boats, shacks or anything else for that matter. Yet this I wanted to know. At least our guide was honest enough to admit that in the late 1980s, the islands were almost deserted, because naturally people found a much easier life on land. But, then later on in 1990s when the Peruvian Japanese prime minister started promoting these islands in Japan and started bringing in a lot of Japanese tourists, for this attraction, the population again started to increase.
The visit of the Taquile island was much more enjoyable, I really had the impression that their the natives there indeed do live off the land like their ancestors did several hundreds of years ago.

I am very content and i will surely be recommending them to my kins. This was a fantastic experience visiting the two major islands those are part of Lake Titicaca on the Peruvian part. The guide was very nice with a deeper knowledge of culture and customs of the people living there. He was easy to talk to and was guiding the tour with a very good approach and attitude. Planet Odysseys were very nice from the moment i booked the tour, they were very responsive to my mails and messages. Ideal tour company for Lake Titicaca tours.

Just an excellent experience. The trip included visit to two different islands which had a very different customs and way of living. They included lunch which was served in a restaurant overlooking the lake. Totally worth it and a good value for money.
