It was an amazing experience to get in touch with Taquile's island way of living as a coperative social group and in an indepedent way from the mainland country. People there were so kind to show us some of their customs and to serve us delicious sea food :-) we also enjoyed our time spent with some Uros families, who tried to explain us their way of living from fishing, making handicrafts and tourists visiting them. We would like to give many thanks to our guide who was very knowledgable about their customs and he gave us a nice tour in uros and taquile islands!! The boat driver was very good and we were feeling safe during the whole boat trip! We totally recommend this experience! :-)

Very well organized (were picked up from the hotel and brought back again). The visit to Taquile Island and the Uros was very interesting. Our guide, who also spoke very good English, told a lot about the islands and their past. The lunch buffet was very tasty (unfortunately, the cold drinks were not included in the price)

Everything was correct, the last to look for the hotel. the transfer to the port and the rest of the excursion. Visiting the Uros is worth it. Know the explanation of your way of life.

It was a great day ... ,,, there was only one problem with the boat's engine, but it was solved in half an hour. Uros Island and Taquile Island

Very nice trip, small group, guide was very informative, relaxed and friendly
