Herlin our guide made our trip absolutely amazing. He was so full of knowledge and taught us so much about the lake, nature along with Inca culture and heritage. We opted to take the horses a majority of the way up and hiked back down. We rented the horses onsite for 80 soles. Was definitely one of the most memorable moments of a lifetime and paired with Herlins teachings it was absolutely amazing. Also a private tour is the only way to go if you can. Picked up and dropped off at our hotel with no issues at all. Breakfast and lunch were also very good with an incredible atmosphere.
