Juan was an excellent guide! Traffic was very bad so he was a little late (out of breath because he ran!) and there was difficulty getting gas in all of La Paz, but this had no impact on us. Juan spoke excellent english, was very knowledgeable about La Paz and El Alto, including the politics. Moon Valley was beautiful, the cable car system amazing, and we enjoyed walking the city with him. He was kind, funny, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Highly recommend!

Guide was great - very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. We covered a lot of ground and saw many parts of the city that I wouldn’t have found on my own which was nice. And I liked that we went on several different cable car lines as I was only expecting one or two. Definitely recommend this tour!

The trip was great not the communication between get your guide and our activity provider was extremely poor.

The trip was really nice , Rafael was very nice and friendly to us , I highly recommend him to others.

Thank you Lucia!!! It was amazing:) Slavica&Nebojsa
