This tour exceeded expectations. Guide was friendly and informative and went out of his way to give some local colour to the tour. We were not sure what to expect of La Paz but came away with a very positive impression.

We had a great tour with Juan. It was supposed to be a 3.5 hour tour, but he spent almost 5 hours with us. He also took us to a local restaurant to enjoy some local food. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. The driver is very nice as well and since it's a private tour, we had the entire car to the two of us. Highly recommend!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

Love this tour! I was the only passenger in the tour so it was more personalized. Loved the Moon Valley tour, beautiful landscape, my tour guide was also a musician and he played the charango for me at one of the charango stores by the Witches Alley. Definitely recommend this tour as an introduction to La Paz.

Very glad we did this tour. Our hotel was not in the best part of La Paz, so my wife and I did not get a good impression until we took this tour and got to see far more of the city. Moon Valley is an interesting area, though quite small still, well worth a visit.

Great orientation of the city and Moon Valley is a must. It's located on the southern end of La Paz, really easy to access, so the combination of the city sightseeing portion and Moon Valley is perfect! I recommend doing this on your first day in La Paz so you can get orientated with the city before exploring it on your own!
