He knows a lot his city, and share all his knowledge, his tips and gives me goods recommandations to continue my travel (to Uyuni and Copacabana as well). The history of La paz is so interesting and the walking tour with Cristián is the best way to introduce myself in the life here :)

Fantastic tour with Max from Red Cap. I learnt a lot about the Bolivian culture and it was a pleasure to hear so many stories from Maw who knows how to share his passion for his country! I would really recommend taking this tour as it's the best way to have an introduction to La Paz and Bolivia in general - just brilliant! Thank you again for the whole team for organising a last minute visit :) really appreciate it!

Amazing Tour
Amazing tour with Daniel from Red Cap. We really enjoyed this tour around the most iconic places. He was so friendly and willing to teach about cultural and social aspects. He explains in detail about all that’s include in this visit. Don’t mind asking him anything he’ll be more than welcome to explain it. We are so pleased and we’ll book in the future for sure with Red Cap.

Amazing Walking Tour of La Paz
Mar 2021
Amazing city tour! Definitely a must! I did the "free" (they can't legally do free, but it's super cheap/basically free) walking tour of La Paz. My guide, Christian was very knowledgeable and friendly. He did an amazing job of introducing me to La Paz and it's history and culture. Got to see and learn about all the main sites of the city and he explained each one with stories as well and answered all my questions. Additionally, I felt very safe as they took all the necessary covid precautions. If you are in the city, definitely take this tour! I wish I had time to do some more of their tours...
