Combination trip for travelers wanting a full day excursion in and around La Paz. The trips starts early with a one hour transfer from La Paz to Tihuanaco (also spelled Tiwanaku), ruins of an ancient city near the south shore of Lake Titicaca. Tihuanaco is believed to be the ceremonial center for a pre-Inca civilization settled in 600 BC and represents one of the greatest architectural achievements of pre-Inca South America. Little is known about this culture as it mysteriously disappeared around 1200 AD. Visit the archaeological site and the museum, and lunch is provided at a restaurant here.
In the afternoon, return to La Paz. We visit the Plaza Murillo, where the cathedral and the Government Palace are located. Then, we continue to the famous colonial street “Calle Jaén” where interesting museum are clustered together, followed by the visit to the typical “Mercado de las Brujas” or the Witches’ Market, located along narrow streets near the San Francisco Church founded in 1549 and a great area for traditional handicrafts and artwork.
The tour continues to Obrajes, Calacoto and La Florida residential areas in the south and the well known Moon Valley , where erosion has given place to the most exotic and curious surface forms. Return to your hotel in the evening.
This tour is approximately 9 hours and includes private guide services for tours of Tihuanaco, La Paz, and Moon Valley.
