Tour description

This tour is guided by Daniel
IMPORTANT please read this before booking this tour. Please make sure that all the people taking part of this tour read this too.

Some of the places might not be available because of demonstrations on the streets or other events, but we can make some changes in the itinerary if required.

Free tours do not have a set price, I do not recieve any sort of payment from the city hall or the Bolivian government.
Each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from 10 € to 50 USD depending on satisfaction with the tour).

SMALL PRIVATE GROUPS ONLY, I am not trying to reach the most people, but the right type of people. The groups start from one to five and up to eight -upon request- people.
I strongly believe in quality services, and because of that, I also requiere that the people who book this tour should be interested in learning something. Please consider other options if you are too tired to listen or uninterested.

The history of Bolivia while walking around downtown Sucre with a certified guide.

Hey, thanks for scrolling all the way down here! My name is Daniel and this is my hometown. I am a certified professional guide with over a decade of experience in the field and I am currently studying in culinary school. My goal during this tour is show you around and at the same time, to tell you the story of my country.

There are different versions you might hear  but, unfortunatelly, because of censorship, even most of Bolivian people ignore the true facts behind the foundation of this country. I have studied this issue for a long time: what happened here  before the Spanish arrival? And what about the Colonial times and the early republican era?? And how things are going on now??  I have some very interesting answers. 

I also tend to foccus on some dark issues and events that marked the Bolivian society, if you wanted to ask something to a Bolivian friend, even if controversial, feel free to ask anything during this tour. We will also have our laughs, since I want you to have a good time as well. 

Come with me and learn more about my country.

Uku Pachay has a lot of knowledge about the history of the country and South-/Central America in general. A lot of information that can't be found with a simple Google search. Must do for understanding Bolivia and Bolivia's history! 100% would recommend.

Daniel provided the kind of information and context about under the surface reality of his country that is not habitually accessible through the usual channels. In this respect he offered a unique perspective and value proposition. I strongly recommend a ‘view’ of Sucre and of the less-known Bolivia from this young, courageous man’s lenses.
