Uros Tour (First stop and guided visit)
Your private guide and the driver pick you up from your downtown hotel In Puno. Then drive to port to immediately navigate by a fast boat to Uros. Step on the first reed island and meet the Aymara speaking people. Let your guide explain you about their origins, history, custom, the way of life and more interesting how the islands were really built.
This reed is commonly named by locals as “Totora” and used for making their home and reed rafts “Balsas”.
So instead of waiting for the switching of languages your personal guide explains all in English while the group guide spends more time speaking in Spanish and English. This will allow us follow and gain better understanding.
Free time for pictures with locals, walking around, visit inside reed houses and then get to next Uros reed islands by traditional reed boat (optional which you can join them later and pay extra money).
We then head to Taquile by Speed boat.
The average time of navigation is 1h20min while the regular slow boat reaches Taquile Island in about 3hours. This means we’ll have plenty of time to enjoy and walk slowly in the Island. You’ll be learning local traditions and history from your personal guide.
Taquile’s location has allowed their customs be very well preserved throughout the Spanish invading. It is a place where men make their very own hats or “Chullos” since they are 6 years old age, where the wedding process can last almost 1 week.
Your guide will answer all your questions and doubts.
