“Travel Agency in La Paz”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

On our first day in La Paz, we had the chance to meet Santusa and Marcello from Viajes Rutas et Recuerdos Travel Agency. They are running a small travel agency in La Paz, calle Aroma.
They are not only English-speaking, but moreover, they were very dedicated to help us organize our journey throughout Bolivia. We very much appreciated their welcoming and warm reception, their professional advice and their reliable service. We can only recommend them!

“Excellent way to know La Paz”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We did the half-day La Paz on foot tour, which started in El Alto and finished (at our request) in a saltenas cafe (El Hornito) in Sopocachi. It was a fabulous experience. Our guide Lea was great, and since it was just me & my partner, our tour became quite an exclusive one. Lea certainly knows La Paz, she showed us some of her fav haunts (which weren't on the official route). We discussed La Paz, it's history, culture, food, feminism, the (underground) radio channels, society, art, social issues, politics - a bit of everything. We travelled in trufis, micros, and collectivos. It was a great day, made special by the wonderful company and conversation.

“Excellent experience with La Paz on Foot”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We had a 7 hr layover at La Paz airport, and we consulted La Paz on Foot to do a 4 hr custom urban trek. It was an amazing experience. Alajandra, our personal guide, met us at the airport. Not only she is fluent in English, she is an excellent source of information on history of Bolivia, current issues etc. We walked around the witches market, and had a good lunch with a view of La Paz city. Alajandra also helped us to choose some nice Bolivian souvenirs for our friends and families back home. it is like having a local friend. Although the trek is not cheap by Bolivian standard, it transformed an otherwise very boring 7 hr wait at the airport to a memorable experience of sight, smell and taste.

“La Paz on Foot Walking tour”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We were only in La Paz for the day and wanted to make the most of it. Our bus was late by 2hrs and made us 1hr late for our tour and wasn't a problem! Alejandra was most accommodating and her English and knowledge of La Paz was very interesting. We took a taxi to the highest point and the view was spectacular. We went through a museum and walked through the markets and neighbourhoods. She packed some great Bolivian snacks, fruit and water which were ones we had never had before. Was a nice surprise. We took a local bus back which was cool to mingle with the locals and wrapped up in the main square. Was great for us but if you have issues with stairs, this is not for you. Was $54 US.
