    Erlebenswert

    The tour corresponds to the description, for this price a good price / performance ratio. Punctual hotel pickup. A lot of information from the guide to the life of the Uros, everyone has to decide for themselves whether these people really still live this way or whether it is just a tourist attraction with sales (souvenirs, boat trips).

    It was cheap - you get what you pay for

    We visited two islands. The first was where a family lived which was really interesting. They were friendly and didn’t put the hard sell on too much. However the second island was just a couple of stall and a cafe! What a joke - no insight into local life at all. In fact there was hardly anyone there besides tourists. It was purely a ploy to get us to spend more money. When we got back to the mainland there was no bus for us so our guide hustled us into taxis. Not very professional.

    Perfect guided tour to the floating islands

    We didn't have a tour booked and wanted to go in Rhett afternoon on the next day but it went perfect. Julio was a great guide and I would recommend this service to anyone.
