Meet the Uros Island people who live in a unique way on man made Islands made of reeds on Lake Titicaca. During this 2 day tour you will be able to meet the local people first hand, see sacred sites from pre-Inca times, and participate in local traditions. There are no hotels here, and you will be able to stay overnight with a local family and eat with them.

This way you can see and experience the local culture first hand. Although conditions have improved on the island, many residents still live as they did a long time ago, without modern conveniences such as running water or electricity. (Running water is often provided for visitors though). Therefore, this tour may not be very comfortable for some people, but it is definitely a more authentic experience.
