A Recent Review of this tour

Miguel took us on an excellent tour to Taquile Islands and the floating village of Uros. The tour was well organised and the sightseeing and lunch super interesting. Miguel is well informed and connected with the local population. He also went above and beyond expectations, before the trip making sure that we were aware of all the details and helping us with our accommodation locally.
