La Paz Tours

A tour of La Paz is a must while visiting Bolivia. Nicknamed “The City That Touches the Sky”, La Paz is the world’s highest capital at around 3650 meters (12000 feet). La Paz is nestled in a valley surrounded by snow-capped peaks. Walk on Jaen Street with its colorful houses from the Spanish colonial time. Learn more about the indigenous Aymara culture and visit the Witches market to purchase aphrodisiacs, spices, herbs, and medicinal plants. Many Bolivia tours combine a visit to La Paz with the surrounding area. From La Paz, travel to the Valley of the Moon to see this beautiful scenery of sculpted rock formations coming from the ground in front of the Licancabu volcano. Embark on a Lake Titicaca cruise and see its crystal clear water or visit the archeological site of the Tiahuanaco Ruins to learn more about the Pre-Inca culture that dominated this region. Below you can find some of our best La Paz Tours, all fully-customizable.
