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.
Highlights
  • Cover some key La Paz landmarks and neighborhoods in a walking tour
  • A great way to get your bearings in a sprawling city
  • Begins and ends close to top La Paz attractions
  • Morning and afternoon departures available to suit your schedule
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’s 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.

We had about 5 hours in La Paz between flights. We walked into a tourist place looking for something we could do in such a short time, and they booked us with Hanaqpacha Travel to do a city walking tour. It was a very last minute booking and we only had a few minutes to get to

We did this walking tour with the guide Maria, she was very good at explaining and knew the city inside and out. It was a great way to get to know the city and learn more about history, religion and politics. I really recommend this tour!
