This experience was excellent. You learn all about how the floating communities continually create their islands, living quarters, how they eat, how they communicate with other communities and get to sample some of what they eat. The islands are very spongy and weird to walk...More

Intriguing visit to the floating islands. We were welcomed into the hut of one of the ladies living there and offered local crafts to purchase. We were also asked for money a few more times during our visit which was a little sad, but interesting...More

It was amazing to see how the people live and work on these floating islands. This is definitely worth a tour to see.

The warm and welcoming residents of the floating islands are great. They demonstrated the care and maintenance of the islands. All of the handiwork crafts are a worthwhile purchase. Take a ride on a reed boat.

A brief van ride to the pier where our group of about 12 boarded the boat for the island. One could sit inside under cover or out on the top to enjoy the lake. A slow boat. The guide gave some history of the lake...More

Tour boat organized by hotel that goes to Uros then after the tour of floating islands it goes to Taquile island. Careful at the floating islands as it is more of a tourist trap but Taquile is exceptional and worth the trip

I didn't find it 'touristy'. In fact I liked to contribute to the community. I had a 2.5 hour tour, which was enough for me, but it would be nicer to stay on the island than stay in Puno town. I spoke to one couple who... More

The boats are mostly leaving in the morning, I guess spending a night in Puno instead is the option.
