Great experience with our super committed guide Fernando! We were only two people on the tour so it was like a private tour! Fernando went above and beyond to give us a great experience and even bought Bolivian fruit for us to taste. Lots of information about history and culture, nice to see La Paz from the cable cars!

Amazing guide with great knowledge and presented in such a friendly entertaining way, really was a great experience!

Our guide spoke very interestingly about the city of Al Alto and about La Paz. I really recommend this tour.
