MUST DO in La Paz!! - We signed up for this walking tour via get your guide. Our guide, Fernando, was amazing!! He speaks fluent English and explained many things to us around La Paz that we would not have known if we went alone or just read online. He gave us insights into how things work in La Paz, from its people, to its history, social and political aspects. He even explained how the transportation system works and the traditional ways people give offerings in the Witches Market. The tour also includes multiple rides on the cable cars to see the city from a different view. 100% worth our time and money, would definitely recommend!!

Exceeded my expectations! - Illimani was a great guide, super charismatic, passionate and knowledgeable. He made the tour amazing. It's worth much more than its cost...I would recommend it to anyone spending even a day or less in La Paz to get an holistic view of the city and its history.

Great experience! Learned a lot about La Paz and Bolivia! - Great tour! Illimani, our tour guide, was awesome! He was super knowledgeable and had so many fun facts about La Paz to share with us. We went on the cable cars and also got to go to El Alto. He also told us some local things to do and try before we left La Paz.

La Paz - It was a very nice way to get a first feeling for the city, especially if you don’t spend a lot of time in La Paz and didn’t know the city at all like us.We took a lot of cool pictures and went home with some knowledge and tips where to go the next couple of days. That helped. Thanks

Great overview of La Paz - This is a terrific and accessible tour of La Paz. We had 2 guides for a group of 10, which helped convey info in smaller groups, while also offering interesting, different perspectives. The chance to experience the views from the clean cable cars was a terrific part of the tour.

Amazing walking tour with Fernando - This walking tour with Fernando was one of the best I've ever done. Fernando was so friendly kind and explained things so well. No question was too much. I feel like I'm 3 hours I got such a feel for La Paz. It was such a personalised tour. Fernando had so much knowledge. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of the tour. It was amazing to have someone show us around the cable cars.

Average but worthwhile - It’s worth the price just to have a guide on the teleferico, however he didn’t have much to say that was interesting. His tone and content were somewhat pandering and oversimplified
