David was our guide and he was great. The tour was so educational and beautiful. He took his time showing us the various sites and explained so much detail. Our favorite spot was the monastery. The tour was very detailed and I feel like I know much more than I did this morning. I would definitely recommend booking this tour!

Good morning dear friend , I am very amazed with the agency Titicaca Travel( Tour operator Mariela) for the organization of the purchase the Flight ticket for me.It is a very professional agency in what it does and you are sure when you book something with them.the next day I did the Tour de Uros- Taquile tour on a fast boat that leaves at 7:30 am and returns at 3:30 Pm With the Guide José Carlos, that you quite visit with plenty time.It was wonderful to be with the local people of the Uros ; they were teaching us the fishing technique in Lake Titicaca and on Taquile Island the technique of weaving men that was very particular. I DEFINITELY HIGHLY RECOMMEND TITICACA TRAVEL and Thank you very much😉😉👍🤗🤗 no complains👍

Titicaca Travel are without doubt the best agency in Puno. Mariela looked after our travel needs in a professional and competent manner. She was friendly and helpful without being pushy and gave us all the information we required to make our experience in Puno a memorable one. The day trip to the floating islands and Taquile island was just perfect and our guide for the day looked after us every step of the way. We also took the Puno to Arequipa via Chivay trip and I can thoroughly recommend this as a great way to see the Colca canyon. Spending the night in Chivay and leaving at 7am from Chivay is so much better than making the excursion from Arequipa Arequipa where you would set off at 3am ! Also Chivay is a charming wee town well worth a visit esp the Observatory at the edge of town where you can use 1st class telescopes in a dark sky environment.

We had a wonderful time on this one day private tour with Titicaca Travel Peru and cannot say enough terrific things about our guide Carlos. We wish we’d had more time on Lake Titicaca, as it is truly a magical place, but since we only had one day we had a choice between the group tours to two islands or a private tour that included Amantani; we’re so glad we decided to splurge and go with the private tour. It was well worth it. We had a large speed boat to ourselves, with our captain and Carlos. Since we booked a speed boat we were never on the boat for more than 1.5 hours at a time, and were able to be back by 5pm to enjoy the evening in Puno. Instead of endless boat time, we had a lot of time to spend on each island, really getting to know the places and their cultures. We enjoyed how extensive Carlos’ knowledge was of the area, beyond what you’d expect of your typical tour guide. He was also very nice, funny, and is extremely well-connected to people throughout the region, which made a big difference for the tour. First, Carlos picked us up from our hotel at 7am and took us straight to the boat. We were at Uros floating islands in 10 minutes and got to explore how these amazing islands are built. We met several families who showed us their homes and demonstrated how floating island life works. They showed us their beautiful handmade crafts, but put no pressure on us to purchase. We even went to a floating island “restaurant” for a coffee and snack before heading back on the boat for Amantani island, about an hour / hour and a half away. Carlos explained to us how the local economy works on the more visited islands like Uros, where they agree to have visitors see different parts places and people of each island on different days, so they all get a chance to spend time with visitors. That way everyone gets to take part, and it doesn’t end up feeling like you’re part of a typical tourist route with folks who do the same song and dance every day. Amantani is very remote and not an island that most tourists visit if they’re pressed for time. But Carlos and the Titicaca Travel Peru have built strong relationships there, and know the people and the culture well. These people really open up to visitors, demonstrating their way of life. Some visitors do homestays here—we saw a few participating in some of the agricultural activities while there—and we wish we could have done so if we had time (highly recommended). On Amantani, a friend of Carlos’ who is a local took us on a hike up to the sacred temple Pachitata at the very summit of the island from where there are magnificent views. The hike up is steep and the sun is strong, so take precautions, but Carlos and his friend let us take our time and made it a doable and memorable hike. We were walking next to women carrying wheat and oat on their backs from one end of the island to another, passed many donkeys and sheep, saw local kids playing futbol, and even learned about an important medical boat the government has put into place to keep local islanders from each island with up to date medical care. There was a long line of locals in traditional dress waiting to board the medical boat, and it was very interesting. As we went Carlos seemed to know everyone and introduced us to these friendly hard-working people. At the Temple we learned about the annual ceremony the locals enact with coca leaves to bring a strong growing season and good things for the year ahead. We got to spend time taking in the special energy of this sacred place, and had incredible views of all sides of the island, with the huge Andes and Bolivia in the distance. On the way down we explored the main square, and even observed a local performance / ritual in the square with music and song. It all felt very authentic, a real window into a different way of life from people who were happy to let us see in. Next was Tranquile island, where we hiked up to our lunch spot, which was included in our tour and was delicious rainbow trout and quinoa soup. As always, the Peruvian food was fresh and delicious. We then had a demonstration from locals on their weaving traditions, which are spectacular. The men and women both weave garments for different rites of passage in their lives, as well as produce their own clothes. They also showed us how they use local herbs to create soap, which really works as demonstrated by its effect on dirty lambs wool (it came out sparkling white and clean). From lunch we went up to the local town square where we met locals and learned more about island traditions. Carlos’ breadth of knowledge and perfect English were truly outstanding. Everything we saw and learned about was interesting and worthwhile, the people were open and friendly, and they all knew and loved Carlos! Then we were back on the boat for about an hour 20 mins and back to the hotel as the sun started to set, with magnificent views. All in all it was a wonderful day, which Titicaca Travel Peru had somehow arranged for us with one day’s notice! They are the company to work with, and Carlos is the guide to use. We highly recommend this private tour if you only have the one day on the Lake; it makes the most of your time without any time wasted on silly touristy things. If we had more than one day, we would try an overnight trip with Titicaca Travel Peru, which they also offer, and we would do it on Amantani Island.
