"Great experience all around"
We used Incas Paradise to arrange transfer from Arequipa to Puno and for a trip to floating islands and Taquile Island. Everything was arranged perfectly and our stay in Puno and trips were just great! Gumercinda took care of everything. Highly recommend this company. Thank you for wonderful time! Leer Más...Dariusz C
We requested two tours for Colca canyon and Uros Floating Islands in Titicaca Lake. Because it was our first time dealing with high altitudes, we were feeling pretty sick and Inca's Paradise without any extra fee agreed to postpone our second tour until we got better. We really appreciated what they have done for us! Even more, Gumercinda helped us to find some hotels around the area. We had a lovely and safe trip :) Leer Más...rainf2911
