It’s situated next to the capital La Paz, and its famous for an unusual architectural phenomenon known as Los Cholets and transformers from Marvel movies. You will be surprised by some of the unique things to do and places you can explore in this city. the cable cars, the markets and much more.

      Wonderful tour with Andrea
      First let me start with a big thank you to Juan for being so accommodative of my crazy schedule! I originally booked the tour for the first day in La Paz June 27 but got stuck in Bogata due to flight delays. Unfortunately I arrived Friday morning when my intrepid tour left the city. I thought all was lost but towards the end of my trip July 6, I reached out upon learning 8 had a free afternoon and they honored the original trip. Andrea met me and what a well spent afternoon exploring Moon Valley- my gosh what a site to behold. Her sharing bits of historical facts, information on each area qe explored. Ensuring that the pace was okay. Thoroughly enjoyed taking the lifts from the silver line to begin ending with the orange line. Overall a great way to end not just my time in LA Paz but my 10 day trip in Bolivia.

      Excellent tour! Valery was a great guide!
      A great full day tour of La Paz. Our guide Valery was super! We learned a lot about La Paz and Bolivia in general. Ice to see the highlights of the city on foot as well as a bird’s eye view via the aerial trams. Highly recommended!

      Great city and valley of moon tour
      Tour took to see the key sites in La Paz using the teleferico in half a day. Juan was my guide who was very prompt. He was very informative and showed me around the city and the valley of the moon! He shared many interesting stories and we had many chats too. He helped to take many photos. Highly recommended!

      Nice trip
      We had a great trip to Moon Valley and on the cable car ride in La Paz/El Alto. Moon Valley was amazing, but very sad to see that the Bolivian authorities allow buildings to be built close to it. The cable car ride was great. Modern gondola operated by European company. We ended the trip with the witch market. The tour guide Juan was knowledgeable and very pleasant. He was also a good photographer who took many nice pictures. Recommend the trip to everyone.

      Excellent Tour of La Paz
      Daylis was an excellent tour guide. So knowledgeable, friendly and competent We got a good sense of what La Paz and the Bolivian culture is like now. Our favorite part was the Teleferico ride, but we enjoyed the rest a great deal also. She made sure all our needs were met; bathroom stops, ATM needs, phone charging for pictures, took pictures with her phone and send them to us right away.

      The best tour guide possible in La Paz
      My guide was incredible! Not only is she kind and pleasant, she's also generous with her explanations. The tour follows a red thread through the Valley of the Moon and the town, but she doesn't hesitate to add anecdotes or extra information whenever the opportunity arises! She gives it all! We went on a tour of the Valley of the Moon, and to get there we took a cab where she gave multiple explanations on the city, the valley itself, the cultures, etc. Then we had the opportunity to take several cable cars. Then we had the opportunity to take several cable cars, and Daylis knew as much about the technology of the machines as he did about the neighborhoods we overlooked, as well as the legends surrounding La Paz. There was something for everyone! Always with a smile on her face, she showed us the city in a different way, from architecture to past and present culture, illustrating her words with photos and videos. A complete immersion in the city, a feeling of having a good overview in four hours. Well done Daylis!

      Great way to orient yourself in La Paz and Bolivian life
      Fantastic experience touring La Paz with Santiago. It was a truly private tour (1:1 as a solo traveler) so I was able to ask all my questions and Santiago adjusted to tour to spend more time where I was interested in learning more about Bolivian life and culture. Santiago's english was excellent and his knowledge of La Paz and Bolivian culture was expansive. The tour also helped me get a feel for La Paz and how to navigate as well. Highly recommend.

      Best tour in La Paz
      I had the privilege of having Daylis as my guide. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the area was second to none. The tour will give you a true understanding of the city, how to navigate it, cultural background, customs, and history. We even ran into a dancing parade! Daylis has so many contacts and such a vast background, the world will open up to you once you take this tour.

      A breathless adventure
      1st time in La Paz? Then make sure this tour is the first thing you take, as it'll help you to orientate your way around this stunningly bonkers city. Andrea was thoroughly comprehensive and informative as we covered a huge amount of ground by taxi, cable car, and foot. Bravo!

      Great guide who makes a differences!
      We really enjoyed this tour as our guide, Daylis is very entertaining and speaks good English. She gave us plenty of information on the places we are visiting and answered all of our questions. It was a fun and extremely entertaining tour. When we mentioned that we wanted to try empanada, she went out of her way to find us some to try :) Juan the owner was very responsive to all our questions the night before we book the tour. We would highly recommend this tour

    The tour with Juan to the Cholets was really great. He is a very knowledgable person with really good English skills. All the time of the tour, Juan shared interesting information and stories, not only about El Alto but also about La Paz in general. I got a really good impression on what life in El Alto is and we visited several Cholets with their unique architecture. I can definitely recommend his tour.

    I combined a private tour of La Paz with this tour and it ended up being a truly magical day. Juan and Wonder tours were really responsive and went out of their way to ensure that I had a great experience. My guide Daylis was absolutely wonderful! In all of my travels, she was the best guide I have ever had and really made the experience! If you do this tour, I would ask for her! Having the opportunity to see El Alto, the Cholets and the unique sights of the city is something that should not be missed!
