Good tour Carmen very pleasant and kind, took us to the old city to tour the tourist centers of interest. The bus was full of Chileans, only 2 Bolivian friends, we had a great time, you can't miss this activity, it is very good to do it even the first day because if you want you can repeat somewhere later being alone

Good tour - not a lot to see in the city, but they did a good job of covering the ground. Tour guide spoke a bit too fast but was really helpful.

Good itinerary although we did not see the cathedral which I was very interested in. Guide Marcela is very knowledgeable but is flat out with speaking in 3 different languages, which made her very rushed to keep up with the bus.
