Do this but Taquile better

This is worthwhile but we found Taquile Island more genuine. We did our tour through Ticticaca for your (Yoshi).

We went out to one of the islands with guide who told us all about how they are created. Obviously very touristy and the people are trying to sell you something but this is not a rich place and the goods look very attractive so why not. Definitely worth the trip.

It was fascinating to learn about Uros and thir way of life. Lots of information on how the floating islands were constructed. We were made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed the ride n the traditional boat. The hard sell to buy goods was a little uncomfortable, but I understand that this is their living

The floating islands are just unbelievable! The people are so friendly and calm with such a basic existence living on a bed of reeds. The skills they have developed to repair and maintain the island is incredible. The beautiful crafts - clothing and knick knacks they make are beautiful. It is an inspiring place to visit!

Interesting to visit, intriguing way of life. predictable, as expected take lots of loose change for tips. If you have ventured to the lake then should see this for half day.

We visited the Uros Islands from Puno and they are very pleasant indeed. The inhabitants are very welcoming and appear very pleased to see the visitors although it is a source of income. The whole system of building the island, building on the island and living on the island is explained. We were shown round their homes and what possessions... More

This is probably one of the highlights of Lake Titicaca - seeing the floating islands, viewing the homes, talking to the people, and doing a little gondola ride which costs about 3.50 in USD. Hearing how they build these islands is fascinating.

We took the day tour to Uros and Taquille. It was quite interesting to see how people live on floating islands and the work they have to do to keep them kept.
