Zona Sur pickups should expect a reduced itinerary to account for an additional 1.5 hours of driving. We recommend booking hotels in central La Paz if you intend to take this tour. (P.S. we pick-up travelers at all hotels, but the TripAdvisor extranet forces me to pick at least one hotel that lists with them. I picked Hostal Ananay because it is the best location, timewise, for taking the tour. -Caleb)

Authentic Experience
Andrew_K, Feb 2020
This tour was by far one of the most interesting tours, I've ever taken. What made this tour so unique was not just the sites (Lake Titicaca & Tiwanaku), it was the tour guide himself (Caleb). The guide was extremely knowledgeable in the history and culture of the sites, and he also included lots of information about the Bolivian people. Some of the best parts of the tour was the journey to the sites. I feel like I got to see parts of the Bolivian country side that most tourists do not get to see. I took this tour just before departing Bolivia, but had I'd known, I would have booked all my tours through this company.
Excellent tour off the beaten path
Daniel_T, Dec 2018
This was an excellent tour off the beaten path. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about all things Bolivia, not just the sights we were seeing. The local guide at Tiwanaku also was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.This was a great tour that not only allowed us to see the ruins of Tiwanku and a part of Lake Titicaca less frequented by tourists, but we also got to see a side of Bolivia that many tourists don't get to see with large groups.

Great day trip. The tour at Tiwanaku with the English speaking tour guide was great! The driver did a great job including preparing lunch at the lake. Although he couldn't speak much English we had a great conversation in broken Spanish/English over lunch. Highly recommended!

The guide was knowledgeable but had a very negative perspective on the tiwanaku ruins. Understandable because of the current state of the site but it made it difficult to enjoy the day. Perhaps take one of his other tours.

Was a good day trip. English speaking guide, Oscar,usually doesn't go out where we were and he did and the trip was well worth it for a day. Going out of the city was our goal. You don't see much but land and topography that Bolivia has to offer. Enjoyed it.

A good day trip from La Paz. Tour guide is extremely knowledgeable about the area and will take you to a great, secluded place at Lake Titicaca. You will also be taken off the usual tourist route and shown some more traditional ways of life around Bolivia. Tiwanaku ruins are interesting but there is much to be discovered yet.

Solace Trekking and Tours when out of their way to assure this was a great tour. The total day was an adventure from the traffic of El Alto to the shores of Lake Titicaca. Highly recommended tour and company.

Excellent - a real personalised experience, off the track of the usual tourist trail. Lunch was a homemade chorizo roll eaten in a secluded spot by Lake Titicaca, and the whole trip was enlived by the knowledgeable narration of the tour guide. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a day trip that isn't a bus crammed to bursting on the same route as everyone else.

Un viaje maravilloso. Perfecto para una permanencia corta en La Paz, pues conocimos Tiwanaku y el lago Titicaca en un día. Angelita Angela Callisaya, nuestra guía, no sólo nos compartió todos sus conocimientos sobre los lugares visitados, sino su calidad humana y experiencias de vida. Una guía maravillosa! Un ser humano excepcional!!! Armando, el señor que con amabilidad y responsabilidad nos transportó, nos preparó un almuerzo delicioso al lado del lago. Fuimos felices! Recomendado al 100!
