Visit the world-renowned Titicaca Lake and discover the mind-blowing Islands, Uros and Taquile, that were built by their inhabitants only out of water reeds!

These Islands are artisanal handicraft masterpieces, floating on the largest navigable high-altitude lake in the world. Their secluded location allowed them to foster very particular customs and unique cultures, that they are willing to share with you on this tour. Not without reason did their textile craft receive the UNESCO title of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Come and explore the famous Uros and Taquile Islands of the Titicaca lake. Learn about their particular cultures, customs, and masterful weaving art while enjoying some of the most beautiful sights of the surrounding high-altitude Andean landscape.

The Uros Islands are made up of some 80 artificial islands, which are usually the first stop when visiting Lake Titicaca. Its inhabitants are considered to be the oldest in the area and were originally nomadic people who came from Bolivia.

Excelente experiencia y servicio Es una agencia muy responsable y organizada. No nos tuvimos que preocupar por nada porque siempre todo estuvo listo para nosotros. Las personas que apoyaron el proceso siempre fueron muy puntuales en las horas de salida de cada uno de los tours. Lía y Nancy se portaron muy bien y nos acogieron de una forma muy familiar, siempre estuvieron pendientes de nosotros. Quiero dejar una observación que no tiene que ver con la agencia sino con los guías en general de todo cusco y es que al ir en estos planes guiados generalmente se va con afán y se dedica muy poco tiempo a los centros arqueológicos para luego dedicarse a sitios de artesanías o a negocios que no tienen qué ver con arqueología.Los agencia y sus personas muy bien. Gracias por todo.
EXCELENTE EXPERIENCIA. La agencia de viajes fue muy cumplida, el personal que contrataban desde el conductor hasta los guías fueron personas muy amables y experimentadas, ello hizo que los tours se desarrollaran de la mejor manera. Los recomendaría sin duda alguna.

Viaje soñado Recomiendo 100% esta agencia. Comprometidos con sus clientes. Organizaron todos nuestros tours, no tuvimos que preocuparnos de nada. Adecuada duración de los tour, transporte ok, tiempo para explicación y para toma de fotografías. Comida muy rica. Estaban constantemente preocupados de que tuviéramos una bonita experiencia, atentos a nuestras consultas y/o sugerencias. Los guías bien preparados, dominio del inglés y español, destacamos a David, atento, amable, muy simpático, buena explicación de los sitios que visitamos y excelente fotógrafo. También nos encantó el guía Edgar que nos llevó a Machu Picchu, muy atento y amable, gran carisma, profundo conocimiento de la cultura andina. Si tuviera que mejorar algo sugeriría que al regreso nos dejaran en nuestro respectivo hotel y que los guías tuvieran una adecuada presentación personal (vestimenta, peinado, etc)

Super Agência a melhor de Lima - RECOMENDADISSIMA Normalmente eu mesmo faço a programação, porém como não estava encontrando tickets para Machu Picchu, busquei no google agencias em Cuzco. Encontrei a Dreamy Tours, que desde o primeiro contato ao telefone, preparou todo o roteiro, desde a recepção em Cuzco no aeroporto até o retorno para Lima sem esquecer os 2 dias de Lima para Nazca.Super recomendo a Dreamy Tours, simpáticos, atenciosos... Só tenho que agradecer a agência. A Dreamy preparou os passeios em Cuzco: Maras Moray, Vale Sagrado, Trem para Machu Picchu, Machu Picchu, Montanha de 7 Cores, City Tour em Cuzco. e em Lima, Translado até Nazca em carro particular, Voo para ver as linhas de Nazca, Ica, Huacachina, Ilha Ballestas, Vinhedo Ica e retorno até LIma.Sensacional todos os passeios.. Novamente super recomendo a agência.
