After reading some of the recent negative reviews of this event, I wasn't sure what to think. But I booked it anyway because I thought it looked like a good value and a fun time, so why not? The ticket includes round trip transportation from...More

We did a 'guided' tour on a Tuesday. It was sold to us in the cafe 'The Carrot Tree' and was a complete disaster. The Tuesday tours don't take place in El Alto but somewhere in La Paz. We waited to get picked up for...More

Do not book this activity via any agency! They will charge you 90bs and take you to a crappy touristy venue with a bad show. If you really want to see cholitas, there are places where mainly locals go, and the shows are only on...More

To each his own. But read the other 1-star reviews. I agree with them all. You are shuffled into a cold warehouse. They give you a drink, half a bag of pop corn and some postcards as part of entry price. Then it's just two...More

Very bad, brutal and fake show! Very disgusting too. The Cholitas tried to create a drama by spitting coke and water on other cholitas. My bf and I were sitting in front row and all got wet from their show( and our camera too!) And...More

Unique. The first wrestling match was all men which I don't think any of the tourists were interested in, but the cholita vs cholita and cholitas vs man matches had the crowd in stitches and cheering / booing constantly. I think a trip to La...More

Yes it is on a Thursday and also on a Sunday I did go with a tour called the free red hat walking tour, but after the walking tour around Lapaz it was 25USD and was definitely worth it. Toured Alalto & did the Cholita... More
