Two guides gave us very entertaining and enthusiastic information about the city and the political situation in the country. It is a free walking tour. In Bolivia you cannot offer your service without a fixed price, so the tour is offered at the officially lowest possible price so that the tours can take place.

Quite a nice tour through La Paz with a lot of interesting information and friendly guides. Unfortunately, there is hardly any time to take photos during the tour or to stop briefly at one point or another. We then had to walk the path a second time for pictures, which was a bit of a shame. Tips were clearly expected - similar to Free Walking Tours - and a minimum value (250% of the actual tour price) was even mentioned. We found that a bit strange. Mainly because the amount of the tip was mentioned right at the beginning of the tour as a condition for further participation. The price paid here for the tour is rather symbolic, since pure free walking tours are apparently not allowed!
