La Paz is a bustling city full of local life, spread out in a canyon and overlooked by the Illimani mountain.
The world's highest capital fills a giant canyon in the valley of the Andes with chaotic and crowded streets, at a dizzying 3,660 metres above sea level. The snow-capped Illimani mountain provides an awe-inspiring and ever present backdrop to one of the most mis-appropriately named cities in the world - don't expect a lot of peace in La Paz. What you can expect though are brilliantly frenetic streets filled with sights, sounds and smells that will stay with you long after you leave. Once you have got your breath back, explore the Plaza Murillo, cathedral and San Francisco church in the very heart of the city, as well as colourful Jaén street and the weird and wonderful Witches Market. No visit would be complete without a trip on the world's longest and highest urban cable car, whilst just outside the city centre, the other-worldly Moon Valley makes for a convenient and surreal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Outside the city, it is worth visiting the pre-Inca archaeological site of Tiwuanaku

Our guide Andy was excellent and very helpful as well as our driver throughout our stay in Bolivia.
We have been impressed by the reception and assistance of your partners throughout the trip.
'All went well, so thanks very much! Guides were very good, especially Emiliano in Buenos Aires. In Bolivia, the guide and driver were really kind and gave us a great journey out.'
We have been superbly looked after by Hector: Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, he made our stay in Bolivia hugely enjoyable. We will recommend Veloso Tours to our friends.
For 4 weeks, we have been almost entirely at the mercy of the arrangements you put in place. We visited 7 different places and travelled 23,000 miles with never a worry and hardly a hitch.
We had a wonderful time in Bolivia and loved every experience. Thank you for arranging for Carlos Campuzano to guide us. We enjoyed his company enormously. We recommend Veloso to all our friends.
We had a most fantastic holiday. Guides were all very knowledgeable, they took us around interesting places, and took into consideration our age and fitness levels making each part enjoyable.
