I had read all about the floating islands and was looking forward to this as a real exciting and interesting adventure. It is somewhat interesting (how they are built and maintained is enlightening), but not quite as spectacular as the surrounding area--it is beautiful! The boat ride out to the islands is very nice--great vistas and lots to see as you approach the islands. Seeing the boats dragging the reeds to build the islands is great, but I was upset to see them using an outboard motor to do the work.... The natives put on a good show as they demonstrate and describe the trial and tribulations of living on the islands. Their native costumes (which you will be required to wear) is quite a colorful sight. They are happy people living a tough life. I could do without the "traditional: selling of the trinkets that they supposedly make, but it is what it is... The ride on the big reed boats is kinda fun. I enjoyed going out the real islands much more. However, you really do have to see the floating islands!

This is an amazing place and not to be missed. It is a very different experience compared to other tours as we were guests of a local Uros family. We were shown their way of life, went out fishing on a totura boat, ate local dishes and learned a lot about their history, threats and plans for the future. A spanish speaker helps here. Thank you Luis, Rubem and Sylvia for your hospitality. We will never forget this. Andree and Gemma, visited Uros at February 16, 2018.

We stayed one night. Overall, it's a great tour to experience traditional Uros life closely with the real Uros people. But, they should've set the expectation right. We received an email with action packed plans and we were excited, but that was our mistake. We were supposed to be picked up at 10am but Frank showed up around 10:20am (unfortunately, being late seems to be an epidemic problem in Puno. I highly recommend to stay at Bolivia side of Lake Titikaka rather than Puno). He wasn't receiving any call and responding any texts. He didn't even say sorry. Then, we couldn't see the main guide Luis until 7pm that day. We were just staying at small island. It was a good time to catch up my readings but clearly this is not good tourism practice. Around 7pm Luis showed and again he didn't say sorry. I was expecting an English speaking guide, but he barely speaks English. He speaks some, but most of them seem to be what he momorizes. He couldn't understand even very basic English sentences. Don't get me wrong, he and his wife are very nice people. This trip itself is very good. I'm mostly complaining about setting a right expectation. If a guide's English is not good then it should be better to say so honestly on the website.
