A mixed tour experience mostly due to the tour being located in one small square for most of the duration of the tour. The tour guide did his best though and there were many very interesting aspects. Thank you David!

Didn't show much of the city and it was very difficult to understand David through his mask. We were longing to see more of La Paz - too many pigeons and rambling thoughts.

David was interesting and knowledgeable, but we lost the feed near the end for a few minutes, which was disappointing. Las Pas looks very interesting. I have not been to Boliva, but have been to Chile, Equador, and Argentina. All very nice. David's English is way, way better than my Spanish, which is extremely limited. Thank you David.
