I was not aware of the island villages. They were very interesting and the people that lived there were helpful and friendly. I would say it is a must see. That they have been living like this since the 1500s is amazing!

Very touristy, but it's how the people live. Very strange sensation walking on moving peat bog!! Good to hear the history of the islands and how they have to keep renewing the reeds to walk on.

Fantastic day out. Our guide was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Stopping at the village gave a great insight into life on the lake. Also got my passport stamped on the main island. Well worth it.

Our group tour was all inclusive in our booking so I don't know what the actual cost was. Sorry I can't help. What ever you do it is well worth it.

If you will be adjusting to altitude at Titicaca from CA elevation, you will need to expect to have more than 24 hours to do so. Most people are looking at 2-3 days before feeling anything like "normal". If you have already... More
