We were offered a 'cultural' overnight tour to the Floating islands of Uros, Amantani and Tequile by this agency in Puno.
We were told that for 120 soles plus 30soles to the family we stayed with (each), that we would be getting a different experience to all the other tour groups visiting the islands. We were specifically told by the person we booked with, that on Tequile, we would visit other 'less touristy' places.
It was pretty disappointing to find that we ended up going to the same places as all the other groups that had paid significantly less than us. our guide (who was great btw) even told us they aren't allowed to go to the other areas on Tequile any more, so the agent who we booked through must have known this.
It was great getting to work with the children for an hour as part of the cultural exchange, but all the other tour groups came to watch anyway, so again seemed like we paid extra for nothing.
The positive side to this agency is that the money for the homestay goes directly from you to your family.
