Great experience with our super committed guide Fernando! We were only two people on the tour so it was like a private tour! Fernando went above and beyond to give us a great experience and even bought Bolivian fruit for us to taste. Lots of information about history and culture, nice to see La Paz from the cable cars!

Great tour, Denise gave us super helpful insights into markets, the prison, spirituality, religion and political insights. Super lovely personality overall, so really enjoyed it!

A good visit to the city and an opportunity for great views. Very interesting. Fernando (the guide) was knowledgeable and relaxed.

I can only recommend the cable car tour. In three hours you can learn important and interesting things about La Paz

It was very entertaining and thanks to the Cristian Guide...a crack...recommended
