    We started our day on Lake Titicaca early, in comfort. The whole day was well planned and each part of the trip was easy and comfortable, from the boat tours around the island to the walk up on the Taquile Islands. We were told before by Katherine that we would need to bring extra for lunch, which was appreciated- some tours leave hidden costs hidden so we were grateful for the openness of the organisation from PIE Peru. Would really recommend booking this tour with PIE!

    This was a brilliant tour. Our guide, Elvis, was very informative and friendly, as were the people whose homes we visited. It was great to experience island life on Lake Titicaca and meet the residents. We would definitely recommend this tour.
