Greetings. I am José, I have lived in Sucre for most of my life. Although my training at university was not about Tourism or history; knowing and learning about new cultures and knowing their stories has always enchanted me. That is why I have been showing travelers the different and interesting aspects of my city for some time. Join me, meet and learn to love this city with me.

Tour description

A walk through the city of the 4 names, its past and present - free tour
Sucre has maintained a balance between its indigenous, colonial and mestizo roots, which makes it an extremely interesting city, with many colors and stories and also very interesting facts.
Sucre is a very safe city, a demographically young city with an affordable cost of living.

If I were you, I wouldn't miss it
On this tour we will relive the history and indigenous origins of the city. We will see fabrics made by hand by indigenous people, the same people descended from the locals who were there before the Spanish colony and still exist today.

Many curiosities, anecdotes and legends
Sucre housed an important part of the colonial society and we will know part of the influence that can still be seen these days. The city of Sucre is very proud of its cultural mix, this is something that we will appreciate during the tour.

Stops included in the tour:

  • Pedro Anzures Square and May 25 Square
  • Central Market
  • Bolivar Park
  • Liberty Square
  • The cat's street
  • ...there is much more on the way...

    Central Market

    The Central Market is a really dynamic place of business. This is a really colourful and curious way with many surprises, and by far the most popular market to get supplies from in town. At this point visitors will be able to interact with the sellers, purchase something if they wish or just take their time to go on further questions about the local production of food.

    Outside visit
    Bolivar Park

    This is one of the most popular areas in town for sure. With a raw design from the last years of colonies. The once called "Paseo del Prado", now is a peaceful place that offer areas for exercising and chilling for every local or visitor. This is a place with very interesting features and some very important national governmental buildings as well. At this point visitos will have time to take pictures and appreciate the beauty of this green area.

Unfortunately i wouldn’t recommend this guy. He has an automated booking and message but then the night before cancels it. It seems like many people had their event cancelled by him and weren’t able to write any feedback about it.

Our guide Jose for the Sucre tour didn't show up at the meeting point and did not answer the messages where I asked him where he is...very disappointing since we could have chosen another tour instead. Apparently it's not thr first time the guide didn't show up as I read in other comments.
