They could have done a better job with informing me about a pick up delay. Pick up was scheduled at 8:00 am yet they didn't show up until 30 minutes later. I tried calling them numerous times but they weren't responsive up to the last minute. Aside from that issue I enjoyed this tour a lot.

The excursion to Amantani Island is great, we were greeted by the family with open arms. The meals were excellent and generous. We shared a lot with them. They share with you their life and way of life, a total immersion in 48 hours. The walks (on the Amantani and Taquile islands) are magnificent. It was really fabulous, we were amazed. On the other hand, we found Uros very "kitsch" sur-fact, unlike Amantani and Taquile, Uros is 100% touristy where everything is good to get you a few soles.

Great and well organised trip. Loved every minute of it. Bianca who was hosting me was brilliant. I don't speak Spanish but I had Colombian girl in my house/room so she translated everything. The only negative thing I can say is that booking through this website cost me double the price than my Colombian friend paid from an agency by booking in the city for exactly the same conditions :-( Otherwise highly recommend trip and experience.
