The day before the Company contacted us by Whatsapp and gave us timing (you may have to request it from them) We got picked up in the morning by our Guide and went with a Taxi to the Bus Terminal in La Paz. There the Guide organized the Tickets and we went on a Bus to the Port, the drive took about 2 1/2 hour at the Port we had to leave the Bus, take a Boat to cross the sea and go on the other side back to the Bus (there you have some time to buy something such as IncaCola or local Cola) with destination We went off the Bus a bit earlier and went to the Church and visited it with some Pictures outside. We went through the market and showed local traditions (which are more visible on the weekends) Then we went to a restaurant where we had lunch. Then to another Boat 1:20 hr ride to hike a little on Sun Island with panoramic view (here you get also Suvenirs as well in Copacabana) - Bring CASH with you when you want.... The Guide explaint during the tour a lot, Thank you

Everything was great. I was picked up on time by Abner. The bus was clean and comfortable. The detailed info about the tour provided by Andres was fantastic. He took the lunch preorders in the bus, great idea! He made sure we were well informed about the tour. Maps were given. Pop corn and movie during the return to La Paz. Highly recommended 👍🏻

Peter (the guide) was very friendly and explained everything in detail. It’s exactly what you’d expect from the description! The company is very professional and serious: a perfectly organised day from la paz and back!

A beautiful encounter with ancestry in a place, although difficult to get to, beautiful and revitalizing. A great adventure in a Bolivia that grows into the future without losing its magic. We will be back soon.

It is worth the very long day trip from La Paz. The lake is beautiful and dark blue. Enough time to explore the little town of Copacabana on your own. Visit the church! Everything was well organized.
