Our guide Illimani was... - Our guide Illimani was great! there were English & Spanish speaking tourists in our group and he catered to both. There was a thunder & lightning storm while we were doing the tour, the cable cars were stopped while the thunderstorm passed which was unexpected. Illimani did his best to keep us out of the rain and within minutes he found alternative transportation for us since the cable cars temporarily closed. The rain stopped shortly after and we resumed the walking portion of the tour.

Illimani was the perfect guide for this amazing tour. - Illimani was extremely knowledgable and insightful, and revealed so much about La Paz and El Alto. The tour never felt too long or too focused on one specific aspect of life in La Paz but instead offered a multifaceted and diverse approach stretching from local culture to economic customs and national politics. Mucho Gracias!
