Full description
After pickup from your hotel in central La Paz at around 7:30 AM, you'll head to Tiwanaku to explore the most important archaeological site in Bolivia.  Located near the southern shore of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, the city of Tiwanaku, also spelled Tiahuanaco, was the capital of a powerful pre-Incan civilization that dominated the Andean region between 500 AD and 900 AD. Arriving later, the Incas regarded Tiwanaku as the site where their god Viracocha rose from the depths of Lake Titicaca. With your guide, you'll explore this monumental site that includes several temples, a pyramid, symbolic gates, and mysterious rock carvings of alien-like faces. At the end of the tour you will be dropped back to La Paz.

Simply sensational!! For those who like it, it's a super ride, liberating, super cultural, rich in stories and knowledge. In addition to the Guide who took us to be super knowledgeable about everything and told us about all points from leaving the hotel to returning to the hotel. My husband and I loved it and we highly recommend it!

Although the guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and informative, it was not delivered in the most engaging manner. Tiwanaku is well worth a trip, but not for this steep price.

Fantastic tour of the site and its museums. They take care of you from when you leave your hotel to when you come back. And always very informative. Highly recommend our guide, Alvaro, with this tour.
