We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Samuel and the boat picked us up from the dock at our hotel Hotel Libertador. Samuel was very knowledgeable and explained to us both the history and culture of the Puno region and of the Uros people. At the first island, he demonstrated for us how the Uros people built their reed islands. I was happy that he had forewarned us the Island people would be pushy with selling their crafts and that we were under no obligation to buy anything, as this gave us the confidence to negotiate and say no to things we did not wish to purchase. He also arranged for us to take a traditional reed boat to the Uros capital where we got our passports stamped with the Lake Titikaka seal. We returned back to our hotel just in time to catch the spectacular views of the sunset.
