Overview
Exploring the city of La Paz on your own can be intimidating but this guided walking tour makes it easy to discover this Bolivian “city in the sky.” Learn the history, legends, and myths behind many buildings and streets. See La Paz Cathedral, explore the Witches’ Market, and learn about the infamous history of San Pedro Prison. This tour is capped at 15 participants, making for a more personalized experience.
What to Expect
Make your way to a central location in La Paz, where you meet your guide and small group for a morning or afternoon departure. Start by taking in the historic San Francisco Church, built by early Franciscans, and then browse the colorful stalls at the Lanza and Rodriguez markets.
Get a glimpse of Bolivia’s traditional healing and spiritualism in the Witches’ Market, and head to Plaza Murillo to see La Paz Cathedral and the Presidential Palace. Here and throughout the tour, the guide shares stories of La Paz’ history, ancient traditions, and modern-day culture, and you can get insider tips on where to eat, drink, and explore in the city. The tour concludes at a café in the narrow, colonial-era Jaen Street, where brightly painted buildings line the historic cobblestones.

Worth it!

You can't beat $3 usd for a walking tour. Maria was our guide and she spoke good English. It is quite a lot of walking uphill and downhill. Plus the altitude doesn't help.
