    BANJO TOURS

    ABOUT US

BEST TOUR OPERATOR IN BOLIVIA

Welcome to
Banjo Tours

At Banjo Tours we run small group, off the beaten track adventure trips all over Bolivia. We’re a proudly Bolivian tour operator (not a travel agency) based in the administrative capital of La Paz.

Our team is made up of Bolivian travel & tourism professionals with a keen eye for offbeat and authentic experiences.

We’re passionate about what we do, we love to travel, meet people and exchange cultures with travelers from all over the world. That’s why we make sure our trips are unique and not just ‘me too’ mediocre experiences.

We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings more than a decade ago having taken thousands of travelers through the roads less traveled in the past decade. However, we don’t pride ourselves on being a big, multinational company with 1.000’s of employees and trips all over the world. Instead, our small size and local advantage allow us to work with a laser-like focus on what we do best and do it the best we can, while giving back to the places and communities that we touch on our offbeat trips.

Our mission is simple: “Provide authentic, affordable & responsible experiences for visitors looking for something different, in undiscovered places, away from the crowds and in contact with the local population.”

Our great services

  • Banjo Tours We started offering La Paz walking tours to the areas that most guidebooks warned against and turned out to be the ones that our customers enjoyed getting to know the most. Since then, all of our trips and tours have retained the essence of visiting off the beaten track places and meeting local people while exchanging cultures responsibly. We avoid taking people to the same old places and offering the same old trips without any differentiation. We enjoy making friends in our customers and this is reflected in the comments people leave about our trips and services. We keep our professionalism atop but interact with our clients in the same way that a local friend would. Even though running offbeat trips is less profitable than running trips in the most popular places, we will keep doing it so that our customers can see another, undiscovered side of Bolivia that they would have otherwise missed.

    Today, we keep exploring our country and designing new trips for those fond of different experiences. We will continue showing the undiscovered Bolivia to our friends and customers throughout 2016 and beyond with our new trips and off the beaten track offers

HAPPY CLIENTS

  • “An adventure for nature lovers (5D/4N tour to salar de uyuni)”

    “An adventure for nature lovers (5D/4N tour to salar de uyuni)”

    I enjoyed the tour thoroughly but you have to be excited about nature (it does get slightly repetitive) and be willingly to 'rough it out' in hostels and dirt roads. We were lucky with the weather. Everyday was a full of beauty and surprises but you have to tolerate 8 hours on the road. Pros: - Good itinerary; stunning landscapes...

    “Well organised and professional outfit”

    I took the 5 day trip from La Paz to Uyuni. It was a great way to see parts of the Altiplano that are off the beaten track and with no other tourists around.

During the first two days we visited the beautiful Sajama national park and some other national parks with amazing landscapes, interesting small villages and hardly any other tourists around.

    “Banjo was a lifesaver!”

    Alejandro was our guide on the three day Sajama/Uyuni trip. It was incredible. Both he and the driver were very patient with my many requests to stop and photograph things. The landscape is astounding and I could have spent many, many more days enjoying both our guide and driver's knowledge of the area. We had a private trip with the...
