Information from Viator
During this 3-hour, guided, walking tour of La Paz, learn the fascinating culture behind this Bolivian city in the sky, and hear the myths, history, and legends behind the buildings and streets. Along with your local guide and a group of no more than 15 people, you'll browse through the stalls of the Witches Market and see the La Paz Cathedral, as well as learn the infamous history behind San Pedro Prison.
This tour begins at either 10am or 3pm in San Francisco Square. You will meet in front of the San Francisco Church where our guides wear and orange and beige vest with our logo on the back. Your guide will then teach you about the traditions, customs, and secrets of La Paz. See historic San Francisco Church, which was built by early Franciscans, and visit the Lanza and Rodriguez markets to wander the colorful stalls. At the creepy but popular Witches Market, see traditional products that are used in witchcraft for healing, health, and ceremonies, and when standing inside of Plaza Murillo—the city's central square—admire the soaring La Paz Cathedral as well as the Presidential Palace. The 3-hour tour concludes on the beautiful colonial Jaen Street, where after saying goodbye to your guide and thanking them for the history and tales, you can go to a coffee shop and purchase a beer made from coca or quinoa and continue exploring around town.
