You’ll get free time to walk inside their reed houses, they actually invite you, after a while you’ll be wearing their colorful and bright typical clothes (for pictures).

Taquile Island Knitting
Taquile Island is collated in an isolated and remote place in Lake Titicaca. Taquile Island is popular because of its knitting and weaving tradition.

At middle day you’ll have a well-deserved lunch overlooking Lake, your guide and a local man show you the very best of Taquile textiles.
Walk down to the port to take the boat to return to Puno.
