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!

Great tour, Denise gave us super helpful insights into markets, the prison, spirituality, religion and political insights. Super lovely personality overall, so really enjoyed it!

The organization was great. The tour was really spectacular. Unfortunately, the accommodations were not that nice, but all in all really successful

I can only recommend the cable car tour. In three hours you can learn important and interesting things about La Paz

Great Tour! Informative, entertaining, humorous! Definitely recommended!
