  • Apart from the classic ride on the uros Islands where they try more than anything else to sell you their products that show you how it really is their life. This "lodge" is very basic, the hut is cold in a shocking, shared bathroom, dinner to let loose in a room alone at -10° and incidentally paid handsomely. Overall expensive by Peruvian standards and does not add anything to the regular tour in the Islands.

  • The ride is very good and meets the expectations of those well informed travelers that there won't be a traditional community because she already incorporated very well the tourist product and knows how to sell his "fish". The tour become a good option for anyone who passes through Puno.

  • We found a way to live amazing: on artificial islands! By 10 Suns by person took a stroll the Reed boats. It was so much fun!

  • We stayed one night. Overall, it's a great tour to experience traditional Uros life closely with the real Uros people. But, they should've set the expectation right. We received an email with action packed plans and we were excited, but that was our mistake. We were supposed to be picked up at 10am but Frank showed up around 10:20am (unfortunately, being late seems to be an epidemic problem in Puno. I highly recommend to stay at Bolivia side of Lake Titikaka rather than Puno). He wasn't receiving any call and responding any texts. He didn't even say sorry. Then, we couldn't see the main guide Luis until 7pm that day. We were just staying at small island. It was a good time to catch up my readings but clearly this is not good tourism practice. Around 7pm Luis showed and again he didn't say sorry. I was expecting an English speaking guide, but he barely speaks English. He speaks some, but most of them seem to be what he momorizes. He couldn't understand even very basic English sentences. Don't get me wrong, he and his wife are very nice people. This trip itself is very good. I'm mostly complaining about setting a right expectation. If a guide's English is not good then it should be better to say so honestly on the website.
  • Must see, but it gets boring after 10 minutes.
  • Extraordinary. Very good experience
