Hello! My name is Maria del Carmen, I am from Sucre, I am in love with my city, that is why I studied tourism, from a very young age I worked in different restaurants in the city and little by little I explored many secret places. I love our history, customs and traditions, which to this day remain deeply rooted in our daily lives. I also speak the Quechua language since I really like to visit our communities and share with people from the rural area. Book my tour and you will discover my city like a local.

We had a fantastic experience on our tour with Maria! Her extensive knowledge of Sucre and Bolivia truly enhanced our journey. Maria was attentive to our questions and led us to stunning locations. We highly recommend her tour to anyone visiting the area!

May Is a great guide with a lot of knowledge about the history and the local culture. Her English is also quite well. Not only did she show me a lot of the city, but she also adjusted the tour especially for me, as I was the only participant. We skipped the central market, as I have already been there, and also a museum which was closed. Therefore we visited a monastery which I wanted to see as well as 2 churches, which were surprisingly open. Either because we changed the route or because I was walking so slowly, the tour took 3½ hours. On top of that, May gave me some further tips for visiting the dinosaur's footsteps, and the carnival in Oruro. I enjoyed this tour very much and can totally recommend it.
