Renan is a wonderful tour guide who is very proud of his beautiful city. It certainly has been a surprise to see just how modern and alive La Paz is. Just a recommendation for Renan (certainly not a criticism). I took part on 2 of your Rodriguez Market tours, both on the same day. The first tour was early in the morning and the sun was in the camera most of the tour, making it very difficult to see anything or take postcards. The 2nd tour of the day was much better visually, making it much better for seeing everything, and taking postcards. I found the market on the earlier tour more vibrant and busier, and would suggest doing this tour in the reverse so that the sun is at your back. I love how you interact with the sellers at the market and also appreciate how you interact with those of us travelling along with you. Many thanks Renan for introducing your beautiful country to all of us, and I look forward to joining you on many more of your tous. Jane

Renan is a lovely guide, so kind, so patient and so friendly with all the vendors. We walked through the streets of the market and Renan explained really well many products that are native to Bolivia and their use. Loved the interaction with vendors and learning about different produce.
