You utilise the public bus but we had no qualms about this - it felt similar to previous private coaches we had used previously. It was comfortable and efficient. Juan (our English speaking tour guide) was AMAZING - thank you, Juan. He is from Lake Titicaca and so speaks very passionately and knowledgeably about the history of this breathtaking area. He was very kind and it was invaluable having him to guide us through the day (really, don’t think we could put a price on that - you could probably book the bus and boat for cheaper but with poor Spanish I think it would almost be impossible). Also make sure you download the app. They tried to contact us via this to confirm pick up (instead of email/WhatsApp/calling) and when we didn’t reply they cancelled our pick up. Luckily we were able to get through to them on the morning when our bus didn’t show up and they organised a second tour guide, but it did set us back an hour.

Could have been a disaster but it was great! All the streets were blocked and secondary roads had been dug up with a backhoe! Welcome to Bolivian peaceful protest (a bloqueo). Many tours never made it out of La Paz. Thanks to our knowledgeable, intrepid and highly skilled driver, we made it out to the expressway on dirt roads with no signs. The detour took about 3-4 hours. Then we made it to every sight promised! We had guide Juan, a gentle soul educated at university in tourism and a native Aymara local full of knowledge of the geology, customs, plant life and history. This tour made a huge impression on us, for the beautiful sights on this tour, for our guides who persisted in getting us to our destinations come hell or high water, and for witnessing Bolivian activism.

a lot of driving but an amazing and knowledgeable guide and a beautiful experience! Basically had isla del sol to ourselves for a half hour of exploring!

Alvaro explained everything to us very well. What a personable tour guide. We spent a wonderful day. The tour and Alvaro are highly recommended.
