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! :-)
This was an amazing trip! It was amazing being brought onto the Aymara people’s floating islands and into their homes and learning about heir history and way of life. Our tour guide had such an obvious strong connection with the families we visited. And then we went to another island to meet with the Quechua peoples there and be treated to a meal and be taught about their way of life. The scenery was spectacular! And meeting friendly open people from different cultures was amazing! Great tour!!
What an experience seeing the condors. Our guide Deena was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the animals, mountains and history of the area, she made the long trip go by quickly. Our overnight stay in the quaint village of Chivay was a delightful change from the large cities of Peru. The food was really good and 2 lunches were included in the tour. Great adventure.
My girlfriend and I had a great tour. Saw active volcanoes and big condor birds in the colcoa canyon. The driver and guide were excellent and very knowledgeable. They even had some alcohol on hand to help with altitude sickness. Would recommend for other travelers
We liked that our small group visited one family, which gave it a more personalized experience, beautiful and visual presentation of Island building technique with good humor
