I spent 3 months in South America and - with Patagonia - Bolivia was the most impressive country to visit. The variety of its landscapes, its incredible mountains, its fantastic viewpoints... Yes, you got it: I fell in love with it!

On a three-day tour you can expect to see and experience the following:
