    Cholera are a very unique part of the culture of El Alto. When you have time it is well worth exploring.

    It was more than I expected, as we not only saw El Alto from the cablecars, but got to walk around and even go into one of the cholets. Claudia was an awesome guide.

    A really interesting tour showing parts of el alto that many tourists just don't see. Maria did a great job showing me around and explaining things. Only criticism is that I didn't get to spend enough time at the wiphala condominiums.

    Fernando was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable about his city and the history/culture of Aymara and the artworks. He was careful to make sure we were comfortable and moving at a good pace on the tour. I recommend this tour to get a sense of El Alto and the Altiplano beyond the La Paz city limits. 5 stars!

    Excellent trip . Highly Recommended . Our guide Fernando is a highly edicated young man with profound knowledge of Bolivian culture, history and folklore which expanded from ancient centuries to contemporary times. Fernando showed us unique buildings, structures and cholets and we travelled with the most sophisticated cable car public transportation in the world. See La Paz from above to embrace the city!

    The tour is very interesting as you visit El Alto take the funicular and visit some special Aymara mansions (we visited two of them). Everything was well organised and I am fully satisfied.

    This is an excellent tour and a wonderful way to get a flavour of El Alto and to see some of the incredibly opulent cholets and mansions. Highly recommend. Excellent guide with real local knowledge.

    Fizemos o tour para conhecer os Cholets e foi incrível ! O tour não é muito conhecido entre os demais turistas, mas com certeza deveria ser incluído na lista de coisas para serem feitas em La Paz. Você conhece lugares que certamente seriam muito difíceis de conhecer por si só! O nosso guia foi o Fernando, ele foi muito atencioso e nos explicou muitas coisas sobre a história do povo boliviano, as diferenças entre El Alto e La Paz. Um rapaz muito inteligente ! As minhas expectativas com o tour não eram muito altas, mas com certeza foram superadas!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my El Alto & Aymara Mansions tour w/Juan. He has a personal interest in the architecture and has visited most of the city's cholets out of his own interest, and his English was impeccable. I had read an article in National Geographic and was thrilled to be able to visit these unique buildings. The highlight of the tour was a visit to the Condominio Wiphala, a public housing project with artwork designed by Mamani Mamani. These were a visual feast - bright colors representing various elements of Aymara culture. This was a truly enjoyable and fitting way to end my trip to Bolivia.
