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.
Brilliant day would have rated it excellent but unfortunately as we were sat at the back of the boat next to the engine although the guide had a microphone we couldn’t hear anything so missed out on quite a bit as he told lots of facts on the boat luckily our friend was sat closer and could fill us in on what he said later
We took a private guide but for this type of a trip that was a mistake. We ended up being on a boat shared by about 30 other passengers. The guide on the boat seem to be much more knowledge than our private guide. So my recommendation would be to simply sign up for the speedboat tour without the private guide.
The full day visit to Uros and Taquile islands was excellent value for the price paid. Tour included transportation (pick up and drop off at airbnb/hotel/plaza de armas, RT boat to/fr Puno/Uros/Taquile), English/Spanish-speaking tour guide, and lunch.
It's really interesting to see the traditional lifestyles of both the Uros and the people on Taquile Island. The guide Daniel took great effort to explain everything, even over lunch to make us really appreciate every facet of their lives.
