Overview

Embark on a day tour of Lake Titicaca, a large mountain lake that serves as a natural border between Peru and Bolivia. Depart your Puno hotel (Puno is a 4-hour drive from Peru's second most populous city, Arequipa) for port, then set out via motorboat toward the floating Uros Islands. Visit two of these dozens of man-made islands—each constructed from native reeds found in the lake's shallow waters—and learn about their distinct inhabitants and culture as you go. Next, continue to Taquile island, home to some of Peru's best weavers.

It felt like a scam
Daniel_B
, Apr 2022
Lake Titicaca is not what it’s being advertised as, it felt like everything was set up to get more money from tourist. Many lies was told on the trip, the optional Reed boats was not optional you had to pay to continue the trip. We where also told by the “mayor” that they didn’t want to make children ask for money which is why they sold home make souvenirs, but as soon as we got on the boat a little girl not older then 7 years old started dancing and singing reluctantly to then ask for money. The Reed boats themselves were also fake, they use a speed boat to drag them but try to hide them so you don’t notice. On the island itself they sell souvenirs as mentioned but after a demonstration of how the islands flout we stepped into a house where they had a shop, the lady who owned the shop asked us to go into the house and we did but after everyone got in she sat in-front of the door blocking the exit, only when somebody decided to buy something she let everyone out. On the second island there is nothing to see or do, it’s a normal island with normal houses, you get your lunch in a normal restaurant and then go back to the boat where you have a 2 hour journey until you get back to Puno. Don’t wast your time going all the way to Puno for this trip, it will only disappoint you if you want an authentic experience and not just get some pictures for Instagram

Not great, but no regrets

The tour was very interesting. Boat was comfortable. And the tour of the islands was informative. Lunch with a local family/restaurant was very good - we even got a little bonus time to learn about their farming activities. Be aware - the walk around the island is steep - there were some older people in our group that were having a lot of trouble. Negatives: Bathroom situation was atrocious - no toilet paper or running water on the boat - and had to pay to use toilet on the islands. Pickup was scheduled at 6:40 - but they didn't come until 7:15, and then we sat on the boat for another 30 minutes before finally leaving.

Good value recommend

Lunch with family was enjoyable. The time on the reed islands where the people lived was educational. The boat was comfortable. The scenery was spectacular. Timing was great because the second biggest festival in South America is held at this time. Due to festival pick up was a little late, not operators fault.

The people who look after us during Lake Titicaca Day Tour were absolutely fantastic, Especially our tour guide. The local people from the Islands were friendly and the presentations they have given was very interesting and entertaining. The restaurant and the food was fantastic, We are totally happy and we will recommend this tour to our friends. Thank You

Very disappointed with the tour...

Very disappointed with the tour arrangement. They told me the pick up time will be 7:40am, I even confirmed with them the day before my trip, and they insist 7:40am is the right time. But the real pick up time is 6:40am, so you can guess how rush the time is for us.

A well-planned and executed tour. The stops were interesting and memorable. The only negative: or tour group was a bit on the larger side, so the place was a bit slower and we didn't get as many questions in to the guide. Be prepared for cold, wet weather if you go in July.

Je déconseille

Je n'ai pas du tout aimé cette journée au lac titicaca. Déja viator n'a pas voulu venir nous chercher à l'hôtel car ils ont trouvé que notre hotel était trop loin (20 minutes du centre ville). Il nous ont proposé un taxi le double du prix qui se pratique là-bas (90 soles).Donc conseille prenez un taxi par vous même ça vous coutera bien moins cher. En ce qui concerne l'excursion c'est vraiment un attrape touriste ils vous emmène sur l'ile uniquement pour vous faire dépenser de l'argent et acheter des choses des gens de l'ile. Le bateau est d'une lenteur incroyable ont à mis 3h30 pour rentrer au lieu de 2h. De plus le lac sent hyper mauvais. Ne privilégié pas cette excursion si vous pouvez faire autre chose vous seriez déçu.

Excursion bien organisée. Un peu déçu du côté très touristique de Uros mais bien rattrapée par le côté très authentique de Taquille.

Bezoek aan eilanden in het Titicacameer
Bart_v
, Feb 2020
Het was een mooie tocht per boot over het meer. Bij ons bezoek aan het rieteiland werden we gastvrij ontvangen. het dorpshoofd liet ons zien hoe zo'n eiland wordt gemaakt, erg leuk. De tocht met de geroeide rieten boot was leuk. De klim naar het restaurant bovenop het eiland was mij persoonlijk wat te adembenemend op 4000 m hoogte. Maar wel mooi.
