Not always a cheaper tour means that you will pay less.
For years The Islanders On Amantani and Taquile have reported many abuses by some travel operators and tour guides, that did not pay them the official rates for their Home stay services, but this situation is at the moment solved thanks to the new administration that is making their rates to be respected.

Be aware that not always a cheaper price offered by some travel agencies means a fair price to the locals, and to YOU. You might find "cheaper prices", but finally you can end paying extra and the local’s receiving less.

Be aware of not paying more than S/. 7.00 for the reed boat ride on the Uros reed floating islands, a higher price might be fair to you.
On Uros reed islands always ask for a discount if you are interested in some handy crafts, as they might be overpriced.
Be aware not paying more than S/. 25.00 For the lunch on Taquile Island.
Some travel agencies in Puno are not paying their guides and the guides are forced to try living of their commissions and therefore abuse of the locals and the travelers.

We at Edgar Adventures are trying hard to control this situation and paying our guides properly. But it is necessary the cooperation of the Travelers.
