Lake Titicaca Day Tour

Why book this Lake Titicaca Day Tour?

  • Visit the highest navigable lake in the World.
  • Live with the natural people of the artificial islands of Uros.
  • Learn about the traditions and customs of the inhabitants of the natural island of Taquile.
  • Taste the exquisite local food.


 Our tour begins with the pick up of our clients from their hotel in the city of Puno.

Shortly after we left in the direction of the port of Lake Titicaca, which is located a few blocks from the center of the city.

Upon our arrival we will board a motor boat, which has comfortable seats and a small outdoor terrace.

Shortly after half an hour, we will be arriving at the Uros community, an impressive place with cattail platforms.

These platforms serve as a base for a number of rustic houses where families of Quechua and Aymara origin live.

Here we will learn through our guide about the Uros society, about its history, habits and customs.

Before the Incas conquered Lake Titicaca, the Uros are said to have lived on the shores of the lake in rustic villages.

Due to the Inca invasion, the Uros were forced to look for a safe place, which is how they came to create this place.

Consequently, they built floating platforms and made their own houses, thus creating their little world.

In addition to using the totora as the basis of their homes, they also used these reeds to design their boats, beds, furniture and other elementary things to survive.

After our visit to the Uros Islands, we will return to our boat and continue to Taquile Island.

Taquile is a traditional Quechua-speaking community, located in the heart of Lake Titicaca.

Once in the port of Taquile, we follow a narrow path towards the center of the island.

During the route, we will enjoy impressive landscapes, with the beautiful white mountain range of Bolivia as a backdrop.

Upon our arrival at the center of Taquile Island, our guide will explain about Taquileña society.

Additionally, we will visit a weaving workshop where the Taquile islanders make typical garments.

Among his garments, a colorful belt stands out, which represents annual cycles related to agricultural activities.

Later, our visitors will have free time to stroll around the community and interact with the islanders.

At noon we will meet for lunch at a local restaurant.

Finally, we will descend to the port to take our boat back to Puno.

Upon our arrival in Puno, our driver will take you back to your hotel.

Perfeito!!!!! Quando fui planejar a viagem para Cusco pesquisei muito os locais que queria conhecer e as empresas que faziam os passeios, encontrei a Qorianka Tours entrei em contato e fui super bem atendida pela Mariele que esclareceu todas as minhas dúvidas. Quando estamos planejamento uma viagem sempre surgi o medo de não ser o que esperávamos, mas falo com vocês que foi melhor do que eu esperava, me surpreendeu o comprometimento, a atenção de toda a equipe que esteve comigo e com meu marido no período da viagem. Vou detalhar um pouco como foi, quando chegamos no aeroporto já tinha uma pessoa esperando para levar até o hotel, nos dias de buscar para os passeios foram todos extremamente pontuais, os guias sempre alegres e com toda atenção explicavam as histórias dos locais, os locais de café da manhã e almoço muito bom e agradáveis e no fim da viagem também nos buscaram no hotel e levaram até o aeroporto. Ficamos 9 dias em Cusco, foi uma viagem maravilhosa, um sonho realizado. Agradeço toda a equipe da Qorianka Tours que conseguiram transformar minha viagem em algo mais surpreendente do que eu espera. Se vc estiver planejando super indico a Qorianka Tours, não tem nenhum ponto negativo para reclamar. Podem confiar.

AGÊNCIA CONFIÁVEL!! A agencia é confiável, fiz a reserva pelo Brasil,só paguei uma pequena reserva,em um banco no Brasil,fiz o resto do pagamento diretamente com a Mariella em Cusco. Eles são honestos,mas meio informais. . No city tour,eles atrasaram, logo após 20'' de atraso eu liguei,esqueceram de nós,mas logo Mariella resolveu o problema e mandou um carro para nos levar até o grupo. Adoramos os guias de cada passeio,Aidê,Roni,Ivan e Mari,são eficientes,educados e divertidos . As Vans eram confortáveis. O hotel do pacote em Aguas Calientes,,era bom e bem localizado,foram nos buscar na estação.

TOUR 7 LAGUNAS CON DIEGO GO! La mejor experiencia de la visita a las 7 lagunas además de contemplar su belleza natural fue que el guía Diego nos dejó tomarnos el tiempo necesario para captar las mejores fotografías y hacer videos, ya que estas imágenes quedarán guardadas por siempre para el recuerdo. También agradecer por la alimentación que estaba deliciosa con ingredientes propias de la zona. Un consejo para las personas que deseen aventurarse en este tour (o alguno otro, ya que el guía es experto en muchos tours) no se arrepentirán en tomarlo como guía a DIEGO GO! ( como lo bautizamos ???) su nombre real es DIEGO SUNA QUISPE
