I landed in Juliaca airport and upon our request a representative of Planet Odysseys organised my transfer and hotel in Puno. Both were inexpensive and very convinient. On the day of the tour they picked me up from the hotel too. The tour was nice and very pleasant experience. After my Uros trip I reached the bus terminal to board my bus to Cusco and it started getting dark and cold and I was not comfortable staying out as a foriegner. A Planet Odysseys representative let me be in her office in the bus terminal. They are very considerate and are exceptionally accomodating
We booked this quick tour to s the famous floating islands of Uros. Planet Odysseys were excptional. They made this an unforgettable experience with a great local tour guide. There were no pressures of buying anything on uros from locals. Recommended if you are short of time
Everything was exceptional, from pick up to drop off they were simply amazing. We were short of time so just visited Uros floating islands. Nancy was very helpful. She even assisted us in getting our bus booked to Cusco. Total VIP treatment. Highly recommended!
This was a good experience. Totally worth it. Everything was good. They were among a handful of tour companies who offered a hotel transfer for this price. The guide was nice and spoke good English. People is Uros island were welcoming and friendly. It was a short boat ride to Uros from Puno an excellent way to get an hint of Uru culture and people if you don´t have much time.
Very nice tour of the lake and the people who live on it. In my opinion, the 1/2 day was enough to see all that there is. We motored out to one of the floating islands, met the people who live there, saw how they build them, and then mingled a bit. The families living on the island are very hospitable, and of course they depend on the tourist trade, so bring a couple of extra soles to buy some handicrafts or take a reed boat ride. Everything was reasonably priced, and there is no pressure to buy anything. Plenty of photo opps. I highly recomend it.
