City Tour, half day, private tour
The City Tour takes about 3½ hours. You can start this tour at 9.00 hrs. or at 15.00 hrs.
First you will go in the direction of the more luxurious Miraflores district, where you will visit the archaeological Plaza and the Hernando Siles Stadium.
Continuing the city tour you will visit the nearby Killi Killi viewpoint, from where you will appreciate the view over the majestic Illimani Mountain (6,462 m) with its snow-capped summit. This mountain is the second highest in Bolivia and is the highest point of the Cordillera Real.
From Killi Killi you also have a magnificent view of the urban landscape of the impressive city.
Then you will visit the old city centre, admiring the main Plaza 'Pedro Domingo Murillo'.
The Plaza is surrounded by important buildings as the Governmental Palace, the National Congress and the Metropolitan Cathedral.
