A very enjoyable afternoon in La Paz - Really enjoyed this tour of La Paz! Was a little apprehensive of using the cable cars by myself so was delighted to have someone guide me and this part was definitely a highlight! My guide (Illimani) was very informative on several subject areas such as the history of La Paz, Bolivian customs and traditions as well as the political system of Bolivia and helped to answer any questions I had. He also made sure to stop for breaks as the hills of La Paz can take their toll and this was much appreciated!

Bird's view on La Paz - Very knowledgeable guide, who nicely covered culture, history and politics. The ride on the Teleferico to Il Alto was breathtaking. Worth the money.

Nice stroll around la paz with a cable car ride too. - Really nice guide called Fernando who took our group of 3 around la paz. I'm not into tourist rubbish but he took us to some places where locals were just doing their thing. The witches market is utter tourist tat but after that it was great. I would recommend this tour as it shows you things you miss on your own.

Great city and cultural tour. - Great tour with Fernando, a very engaging guide as knowledgeable and informative about the local culture and traditions as he was about the city and its history. Fantastic to see the city close up and then get a birds-eye view to help put it all into context. Highly recommended.

An amazing tour, an amazing guide! - The city tour of La Paz was fantastic! Illimani was a fantastic guide who went above and beyond to make sure we had a good experience. He showed us a good number of key sites in La Paz, and taught us a good amount of history of the city. I would highly recommend this tour to help you get oriented to the city!

Fantastic tour! - This was a fantastic tour, so many interesting stops and information from our guide Iggy. A really good value for money too, there are other tours that are more expensive but not nearly as good. I highly recommend!

Cable cars were the best! - Nyra our guide was very informative, speaking English clearly, explaining indigenous traditions and history of La Paz. The cable cars showed the city and various areas superbly putting everything into perspective. Great tour and would definitely recommend. Thank you Nyra from the New Zealanders
