This was great!! Get to dress up like a superhero (or a piece of bacon..) and walk down the side of a building. My only regret: the building is slippery! It's hard to keep your fees on the side and actually "walk" - maybe bring some grippy shoes with you!

It was definitely what I was looking for-a safe but exhilerating experience in Bolivia. It didn't cost too much and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in going off the beaten trail in Bolivia.

It was the first time I did such an activity. I was a little bit scared at the beginning but the staff trained me first and I really felt safed all time long. I really recommend to do it if you spend some days in La Paz! Such an amazing Experience!!!!!!!

Really loved this activity - it was a huge adrenalin rush and something completely different. It was also very cheap for what it was - $20 to scale and abseil down a building! We had to wait a bit until a decent sized group assembled, but the views were pretty fab so no complaints. Incredibly safe and the guides were... More

Everything about Urban Rush was incredible. They were super friendly, and made sure you were 100% comfortable before starting the descent. Plus, you get to wear your favorite superhero's costume! The only thing I would recommend is to bring Bolivianos. I had to pay in dollars with a poor exchange rate, but that would have easily been fixed had I... More

I did the rappelling down the side of a building and it was awesome. They have superhero costumes (including spiderman and a strip of bacon) to make it even better: Staff may have seemed unprofessional because they were all young and playing with each others hair and smoking, but the experience was great, safe, and well-run.

I loved doing this! You get a nice discount if you do the free walking tour first and mention the Red Caps. The staff is very helpfull and you get to wear a nice spiderman suit if you want to. They explain everything clear and actually it's not that hard to do. But it's a lot of fun!

I was a little nervous because of the height and the cheap price (100 bolivianos when you do the Red Cap free walking tour) but they were very friendly and professional. Two safety ropes with one person at the top and one at the bottom. Really fun experience.
