Nice tour!

Small coordination problems with the local operator: meeting at 8:00 am and they came to learn us at 7:40 am. Then they took us to the bus station (arrived at 8:10) where we waited until 9:30 to be picked up by the guide and begin the shared tour with 8 other people. The tour is very beautiful and the guide is prepared. Definitely to do if you are staying in La Paz.
