What to Expect

Ride the yellow line cable car to the edge of the southern part of the city and then transfer to the green line, which extends all the way into the upscale South Zone, which features the most modern architecture in the city. The tour concludes in downtown La Paz, close to top restaurants and attractions. The guides can help arrange transport back to your hotel.

This tour was fun. We got to see several parts of the city, plus avoided the traffic (most of the time). There's also great views of the city overall and the Andes. Interesting stops as well, especially in El Alto.
