We had a terrible experience with this agency.

We had booked transport to and from Taquile island with a night in-between.

Once on the boat the guide told us we had to stay with his tour group for the day also. When we declined he refused to issue us our return tickets or tell us where the return boat departed from. He eventually decided he would tell our accomodation but not us, so once we had a host family to come and tell him who they were (motivated by comission as the host family told us).

The following morning the agency called our hosts and moved the boat time forward 2 hours and changed the departure point.

The boat never turned up and after waiting for a hour we paid a different boat to return us to Puno.

On a side note, the island and host family were lovely.

We had a 2 day tour around Lake Titicaca with Coyla Adventures. Our guide was Efrain and he was fantastic from start to finish! Super explanations about everything we visited. We started at Uros, floating Islands - spectacular! Really interesting place. Then we went on to the island of Amantaní. We stayed with a local family there. Again the tour was really well organised, they even catered for our dietary needs (not easy on a remote island). We walked to the top of the island that evening to watch the sunset which was amazing! There was a party/dance that night which was great fun. The next day we went to the island of Taquille which is also fantastic! Really well worth a visit. Overall we were highly impressed with the standard of care and the tour in general. Would definitely recommend.

We took a full-day trip to Uris and Taquile Island with this agency. Very reasonably priced. Our guide, Efrain was excellent, considerate, well-informed, and enthusiastic. They are very organized. The initial hiking on Taquile involved a steep twenty minute climb that many folks, some older, did not seem to be aware would be part of the excursion. So, I would suggest that they make sure people know what's in store. Having said that, I would highly recommend these guys.

We have had a great experience with Coyla Adventures. We went on a day tour of the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca from Puno. The tour was well organized - hotel pickup, very informative and good itinerary. Efrain, our guide was fantastic - he was not only very knowledgeable but passionate as well to share this special part of the world.

The company also was very quick to correct a mishap from an earlier tour (we had issues at the Bolivian border) and gave us a full refund. That level of customer service is very much appreciated and why I would highly recommend tours with Coyla.

It was a pleasant trip through Titikaka Lake. We went to the floating islands, Taquile Island and slept on a floating island. I don't have words to describe how much I enjoyed the trip. Rene is the most caring person I've seen there, in Peru. He picked us from airport, helped us buying tickets to Macchu Picchu, took us to Cuzco Buss. Even mailed us asking if we arrived ok. We couldn't make a better choice than Coyla Adventures. Thank you, Rene!
