Full description
Bolivia is not known for its culinary delicacies, but that's about to change. You can never truly know a place without eating from its table. Here, the food is about where the family meets, where the day’s activity comes to a halt and life’s simple pleasures are appreciated. It's all about warm, hearty cuisine from warm and hearty people. This evening tour will leave your stomach, mind and soul full. You will not only learn about the best of Bolivian cuisine but also the stories about the people behind all the ingredients. The tour starts at 18:00 PM featuring tastes from the best local restaurants (which have been inspected for cleanliness and proper food handling) and passing by La Paz’s many unique markets, historical monuments and sights. Finishing the tour with a drink and some fun conversation at one of La Paz’s most interesting café bars.

Max was amazing and very informative. The tour was completed in a nice easy pace and very relaxing and not to forget - tasty. A lovely variety but a word of warning, don’t try to eat everything. You will be bursting at the seams by the end. I would highly recommend him for your tour

Fun evening with Rubierto as guide. Tried some market food with fun deink and he adjusted menu when he learned what i'd tasted already. Then some street food (maybe little dodgy) but added pork dish at a very local place and finished off with soup and yet another dish with a wonderful cocktail at a fun beer bar/restaurant. Interesting conversation and information made for a great evening.

Our guide was very personable, patient, and kind. The food was a bit heavy. While the three drinks might appeal to a younger crowd, we're middle aged. And suffering a bit from La Paz altitude. Alcohol and high altitude have not mixed well with us. All the same, it was a great tour and we had a fantastic time. Maybe we could have been stronger and said no to the booze.
