A Recent Review of this tour

We had an excellent experience with Miguel. We would highly recommend him as a guide. Our private Uros floating island trip is one that we will always remember. We must say a special thank you to Miguel who rearranged our 2 day tour to accommodate the fact that we experienced some altitude sickness. We appreciate all that he did.
