Almost all the reviews talk about how informative it was but we found it was almost the opposite. Maybe we just went on a bad day.

I jumped in for a couple of questions, got good recommendations on places to see in Sucre, and also about other places on the way to Santa Cruz and regarding the best way to get there. The guy working there was happy to help and recommend, and the atmosphere there is generally good.

Marco clearly has his house in order. Just wanted to know about a little fiesta I'd heard about commemorating Che Guevara and left half an hour later with a overflowing list of must see highlights of North East Bolivia, the Chaco, stacks of maps and personal recommendations to boot. If you need to know, this is the place to go
