This La Paz tour hits all the right marks – captivating, scenic, and a little bit spooky. Journey through La Paz with a local to discover all the stories that make up this magical Bolivian city, from the inmates of San Pedro Prison, to the mysterious tales of The Witches Market, and the locals that live and work in the highest capital city on Earth.

Your La Paz adventure will start in the very heart of this incredible city, at Plaza Murillo. There couldn’t be a more perfect backdrop for your introduction to Bolivia’s war, wealth, and nature, than the impressive architecture that surrounds you in this square. We’ll not only kick off your tour with plenty of insights, we’ll also make a stop here to try a traditional, tasty mid-morning Bolivian snack (because fun facts should always be accompanied by food, right?!).

As we move away from Plaza Murillo on this La Paz tour, we’ll head towards San Pedro Prison, an infamous La Paz landmark that is best seen from a local’s perspective. Your guide will give you the lowdown on what makes this prison so famous, and what makes it one of the most fascinating local stories in town.

We’ll stroll past the prison walls (don’t worry, it’s completely safe!) and then head towards several local markets, places where Bolivian culture really comes alive. Lean about the staple foods of Bolivia, such as the endless different types of Andean potatoes, produce that is worked into the local cuisine in all kinds of interesting ways. As we continue to tour La Paz, we’ll also head towards a local fruit market to taste freshly-picked organic fruit, sourced from every corner of Bolivia. Taste mouth-watering, flavourful fruit from the Bolivian Amazon rainforest, and try to guess their names!

Next up, we’ll hop into some public transport and journey up into the outer heights of La Paz. We’ll reach a spectacular scenic viewpoint, where you can see across the city of La Paz from above, and may well be the only foreigners in sight doing so. Take some unforgettable photos of this beautiful panorama, and enjoy the moment as you reflect on all the activity going on below you.

We’ll jump back in our transport, and journey down to the Witches Market, another classic La Paz neighbourhood. Here you can discover the myths and legends of Bolivia, from spooky voodoo to everything you need to know about the coca leaf. You’ll even find some very interesting Bolivian aphrodisiacs! Have your fortune told by a Shaman who specialises in coca leaf readings, and walk around these magical markets, finding all kinds of potions and odd cures.

On our way back to downtown, we’ll take a short stop off at another market, where locals buy their day-to-day goods. Here you can take in yet another snapshot of local life in La Paz, shop for some produce yourself, or perhaps buy some last minute souvenirs.

We’ll arrive back at Plaza Murillo between 12 and 1pm, depending on the traffic (which can be crazy in La Paz!) and the pace of our group.
