Get a glimpse of Bolivia’s Pre-Columbian past with a visit to Tiwanaku. Just two hours from La Paz, this site features structures dating back 15,000 years. On this comprehensive tour you’ll visit museums of ancient treasures, the Temple of Kalasasaya, the Gateway of the Sun, the Akapana Pyramids, and the Pumapunku Stone complex. Your tour ends with convenient transport back to your hotel.
Very interesting tour from the narrative to the scenery to the felliw passengers. Made me eager to find out more
The trip was excellent, the tour guide however lost people including myself because she didn't do a head count before leaving each site, other than the trip was great!
We came to Bolivia because of THIS tour. It was OK the guide was obviously a knowledgeable person but didn't put the effort we expected. He treated us fine, but like we came here to take pictures and put them on facebook not at all in our case. He would professionally complete what he intended to say at each visited site, and then quickly returned to his cell phone. It is the best combination if you have a guide who is really passionate and knowledgeable at the same time.
The tour guide is not counting people. We missed a couple and bus left before the tourists in the same group realized it...
The guide showd up on time. She was very interested in the subject matter and posessed a lot of knowlegde on the topic. Educating. The site itself was badly taken care of and the organization of it is unsatisfactory. The bus was really uncomfortable, no seatbelts for passangers. That is totally irresponsible. The traffic in Bolivia is extremely dangerous. The participants were contrary to the agreement dropped off close to the centre of the chaotic city, La Paz.
Once everyone's been picked up took 90 mins, the drive to Tiwanaku takes about 90 mins, the first half of which is very slow as it's through the city and in places doesn't seem to be on official roads. There's very little to see at the sight - the two museums aren't particularly interesting and the site is sparse and flat the pyramid is more of a mound and the other sites contain minimal interesting content. Lunch is provided in the nearby town and was reasonable. After lunch there was a quick visit to a small site at the other side of town, then we were driven back to the main Cathedral in La Paz and left to make our own ways back to our hotels two blocks for me, several miles for others. The guide spoke in Spanish and then English and ensured that everyone was engaged. Effectively the tour was a leisurely stroll in the sun, but this sight is a poor relation compared to other pyramid sights in South America, Africa or Asia.
