The best walking tour I've been on. - I've been on many walking tours. This was one of the best I've been on. Not only was what we were seeing interesting, but our guide really elevated the experience. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. But how she presented what we were visiting really elevated the experience. This tour company is excellent. My guide was Denise! She was great!

Great insightful tour - Christian was a great tour guide. He took us around the places I wouldn’t have been able to go to alone as a tourist. This is a great tour if you want to learn more about the history and culture of la paz.

Great tour and great guide! - Great tour to get the know the city from above (in the cable cars). Christian was an amazing guide with lots of positive energy - making for happy memories! The shaman at the witches market had some interesting things to say about our fortune, let’s see if it comes true or not!
