We were picked up on time at our hostel in Puno, (actually before the pick up time), we were taken to the docks and placed on a very comfortable boat with a guide who spoke excellent English ‘Nilton’ (one of the best guides we’ve had in Peru) We were taken to the islands, learnt lots about how they were made and the people who live on them and were welcomed into the locals’ homes. After that we took a dragon boat ride to a second island, the ride was excellent and was a cost of 10 soles per person The second island we visited was a bit of a tourist trap, people selling food and souvenirs and not really much to do on the island. Also our drop off back into Puno seemed a bit disorganised, it didn’t seem like there was anyone to pick us up but eventually the guide hailed a taxi for us included within the tour.
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
