Select Date and Travellers

Meet your guide in front of the San Francisco Church and enjoy 2-hours exploring from a cable car, locally called Teleferico. During the tour you will switch between 6 different cable car lines. Visit El Alto and the witches market up there. Amazing views, definitely the best way to see the whole city on this 2-hour tour departing at 11am or 3pm.
  • La Paz cable car tour visits some of the city’s most important neighborhoods
  • Get your bearings in Bolivia’s biggest city
  • Safe, convenient way to explore local areas from high-altitude viewpoints
  • Browse for unique souvenirs at the Witches Market
What to Expect
Meet a guide a central location in La Paz and then rise above the city as you take the red line cable car to El Alto, a high-altitude district with sweeping views. You’ll pass the massive central cemetery on your way to the El Alto Witches Market—renowned for unique wares and the occasional ritual—and hop a minibus through a few El Alto neighborhoods. Ride the yellow line cable car to the edge of the southern part of the city and then transfer to the green line, which extends all the way into the upscale South Zone, which features the most modern architecture in the city. The tour concludes in downtown La Paz, close to top restaurants and attractions. The guides can help arrange transport back to your hotel.
