A wonderful tour besides the odds

Christian was one of the most caring professionals knowledgeably guides I have ever had. I had just flown to LA PAZ and was having trouble with altitude sickness. He was so kind to help me get around so I could still take the tour with the least effort. He showed me so much of beautiful La Paz and I thank him so much for that. He deserves 10 stars. Thank you Christian so much He even helped me get oxygen at my hotel after the tour. What a good man!
A great way to explore La Paz

Andy (Andrea) was our tour guide and she was excellent. The tour was a small group (6) which is excellent. We started in front of the San Francisco Church, where Andy explain the history of the church, government, and why the witches market is behind the church, We then walked thru the Witches Market stopping at a local store where Andy explain the history of Pachamama how it fits into the native lives in the past and present. We continued to walk thru the witches market and stopping along the way to one of the open markets where we viewed the wide variety of foods and spices available. Andy convinced me to try a sugar apple and boy it was terrific I doubt that I can find them in the States but it was excellent. We continued our walk thru the other relevant areas of La Paz such as the San Pedro Prison, Plaza Murillo and finally a wonderful walk along the Calle Jean with Andy explaining the significance and history of each stop along the way and how current events affect the citizens of Bolivia (the clock running the other direction is interesting for sure). I could not have had a better guide than Andy. Bravo...
Excellent Intro

Andy was a lovely tour guide. She gave us a wonderful introduction to the city and the culture. Could have happily spent another hour with her learning about this beautiful city.

We had a great city tour with the guide Franklin! He was fully involved in discussion and during the tour we could discover lots of interesting facts about La Paz and it's citizens. I think the city tour is the best way to start your acquaintance with the city. Fully recommend the tour ! Thank you Franklin!!!

Our tour guide Franklin was nothing short of amazing, treating us with a huge number of anecdotes and informative stories while looking at numerous sites in La Paz city centre. Can' recommend highly enough.
Fantastic tour and a fantastic guide...

Fantastic tour and a fantastic guide Kari! You will learn a lot about La Paz, its history, daily life, and all other aspects you might want to ask in those 3 hours on your walking tour through La Paz. It was our first tour since we arrived in Bolivia, and at the end of our 10-day stay, we took another tour offered by the same company - Cable car tour of La Paz with Valeria a fantastic and very knowledgeable guide. Those two tours complement each other in a way that you feel that you really start to know this interesting and beautiful city. Taking these tours is so much more valuable in comparison to reading a particular brochure or a tourist book. You see and learn all through the eyes of real La Paz citizens who love their country, understand the past and give you a personal touch of their town. 3 hours per each tour pass like a breeze! Highly recommended.
