Two guides gave us very entertaining and enthusiastic information about the city and the political situation in the country. It is a free walking tour. In Bolivia you cannot offer your service without a fixed price, so the tour is offered at the officially lowest possible price so that the tours can take place.

Very well done tour. Our guide, Daniel and his partner were excellent. They gave us a good look at the city plus passed on many cultural aspects of Bolivian society. Guides were knowledgeable and presented well in English.

It was a great way to hear about La Paz and Bolivian culture. I would highly recommend it! It’s so cheap yet so informative! Our guide Max did a great job.
