  • The tour was totally worth the money, we saw almost everything we wanted, the guide paid attention to us since we were the only ones not speaking Spanish. Recommended.

  • Great for the price. Not sure why others cost more. However, I do advise to get used to altitude before tour as hike in Taquile Island can be tough.

  • Boat was leaking oil/gas which made the entire trip a nightmare since the cabin was full of smoke, after complaining to the guide he called a second boat after landing on the 1st island. The guide did not explained much about anything, he took turns w the captain taking long naps. Boat was old and slow.
