Muy lindo el tour. Te explican cada lugar por donde pasa el bus y al final el ritual de la hoja de coca es muy significativo y lindo. Gracias!

You only get off the bus twice, once for the ceremony and the other at Cristo Blanco. All in all, it’s worth it, the guide is pleasant and meeting up at the spot was well executed.
