    Extremely well organized. Loved Lake Titicaca and Sun Island, but be sure to request a room down by the beach on Sun Island, or you will be climbing LOTS of steps up to the lodging well above the beach area. Most are set up high, and they advertise beautiful views, but trust me, just stay down below and hike up later for the views, without having to carry all your own suitcases, etc. Luckily, our guide gave us the heads-up so we requested a beach hostal and it was great. Remember, elevations are high here, so carrying a heavy pack uphill is not fun! Hostal Puerto Yumani is the almost new hotel, and breakfast is included. Very comfortable lodging and no hiking to reach it! It also serves lunch and dinner.

    Ridiculously unorganised. Would not pick me up despite staying on the same road as the tour company 8 blocks away. No guide until I got to Copacabana and had no idea where I was going because only Spanish instructions on the bus. Guide was nice but didn and #39;t seem interested. just do your own trip cheaper
