Got a hotel pickup, transfer to the boat... enjoyed meeting some of the locals and the tour. Nice lunch too.
It was great to go canoeing. Everything went well. However, the guide was a bit hectic.
It is a nice excursion, lunch is sensational and the lake view is the same.
Excellent service, starting with the punctuality of the hotel pick-up.
Excessive time on Taquile Island. The duration of the Tour is not 11h.
