Tour description

 IMPORTANT please read this before booking this tour.

 Update: some times of the places might not be available due to unfroseen situations, but we can make some changes to the itinerary if necessary.

The free tours do not have a fixed price , I do not receive any kind of payment from the municipality or the Bolivian government.
Each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount he deems appropriate (this usually varies from 10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

I ONLY DO SMALL GROUPS, I'm not trying to reach the most people, but the right kind of people. Groups start from one to five and up to eight - upon request - people.
I firmly believe in quality services, and for this reason, I also require that people who book this tour are interested in learning something. Consider other options if you are too tired to listen or disinterested.


The history of Bolivia walking through the center of Sucre with a certified guide.

Hey, thanks for scrolling all the way down here! The thing is, I love history. I was born in this city and spent most of my life here. The city of Sucre is the capital of Bolivia and knowing how this region became an independent country is something every single tourist should know.
There are different versions you might hear but, unfortunately, due to censorship, most Bolivians also ignore the real facts behind the creation of this country. I have asked myself these questions for a long  time: what happened here before the arrival of the Spaniards? And what about colonial times and the early republican era?? And how are things going now?? I have some very interesting answers.

I also tend to focus on some dark issues and events that have marked Bolivian society, if you want to ask a Bolivian friend something, even if controversial, feel free to ask anything during this tour. We'll have our laughs too, since I mean to depress you. 

Come with me and discover more about my country.

The tour takes place in the historic center of Sucre and visits:

  • Square 25 May
  • The central market
  • Bolivar Park

This is a good tour. Daniel took us around the city, explained the history of the country well and gave a lot of interesting information. We also stopped for chicha, a local beer made from corn. He also had good suggestions of things do to in and around the city. I highly recommend.
