There are lots of buses that run between Puno and La Paz so should be easy to sort once you are in Puno. Maybe just check with your hostel/hotel for recommendations. You have to get off the bus at the border, sort your... More

I'd love a recommendation for a private boat tour to the floating islands. Someone who can take us to the less crowded places and we can go at our own pace.

We took Edgar Adventures. It was a bigger tour but they do private tours as well. They did a good job and were rated highly on Trip Advisor.
