This was an interesting trip. Our guide and driver picked us upon time and whisked us away to Moon Valley. This is just outside La Paz and looks like another planet! Hence, the name! After this we managed to get on the Cable Car above La Paz and this was a highlight of the trip for us. The topography of La Paz is incredible and you'd be surprised how every space is utilised in the valley and on the cliff tops. At the end we went through the Witches Market and this was rushed to a degree. Our guide shared some interesting stories and had great knowledge, however, the tour did feel a little rushed at times. If you are struggling for time, then this tour is perfect for you. If, however, you have a bit more time, this tour will give you a start of where to go in La Paz.
