Full description
Depart from La Paz on a fully guided day-trip that sails on Titicaca Lake and visits Copacabana and Yumani as well as Isla del Sol. Enjoy a tasty lunch and discover the famous Inca Steps and the Inca Fountain. Leave La Paz at around 7 am and after approximately 3 hours you will arrive at Tiquina, the narrowest part of the Lake Titicaca. Cross to the other side by boat and continue the trip on a 30-minute bus ride to the town of Copacabana. Once there, have lunch and then head towards the shore to catch a boat to the Isla del Sol, where you will see the Inca steps and the Inca fountain, also known as the youth fountain.  This Inca fountain represents the 3 pillars of the Aymara Culture, Ama Sua, Ama Llulla, and Ama Quella, which mean, you shall not steal, shall not lie, and shall not be lazy. Afterward, visit the town of Yumani and then start heading back to the port to catch the boat back to Copacabana. Once in Copacabana, explore the church, main square, and the crafts market. By 6 PM you will catch the bus back to La Paz, where you should arrive back in the city by 10 PM.

If you are very tight on time and you really want to visit Titicaca lake and Isla del Sol - this tour is ok. Just keep in mind the transport included is the public bus so you lose a lot of time (basically you spend most of the day in the bus). It would have been a lot better with a private van but it is anyway quite far. The lunch was good and our guide (Pablo) is great. Probably you would pay a lot less if you would organise it by yourself, but doesn't look easy and also you wouldn't have a guide.

The organization of the transfer from the hotel to Copacabana is incomprehensible to me. For this money and several times cheaper, I could get there on my own also on the same regular buses and on my own crossing. I liked the guide, he showed and told everything in detail, the guys who met at the hotel and escorted to the hotel also liked it, they warned about safety. Transfer only claims.
