Great orientation to La Paz - We had a wonderful walking tour. We visited all of the major sites rode the cable cars. We heard stories about the culture and religion. We received orientation on how to purchase tickets for the cable cars which allowed us to explore on our own after the tour. It was definitely worth our time and money
