Fabian M.

La Paz, Bolivia

I am Fabian, bolivian native, born and raised in La Paz, have been a tour guide for over 5 years.

I started exploring my country when I was 9 years old with my father, a tireless traveller that used to take me to many hidden spots in Bolivia. That's when my passion for travel started. . . Many years later I would get a bachelor degree of Tourism and Hotel Management in Bolivia and did a master's degree in Ecotourism at Lima Perú.

Up until a few years ago I worked as a consultant in the amazon protecting an endangered bird and developing sustainable tourism together with an ethnic tribe,
a job which allowed me to know in a deep way my indigenous friend's traditions and realize how immense is the diversity of cultures we have in Bolivia.

For example. . Did you know that Bolivia has the highest percentage of indigenous inhabitants in all of Latin America? Approximately 62% of Bolivia's population is indigenous.

That makes Bolivia a very attractive spot for you in South America, because we still practice our traditions and rituals as they were over 2000 years
ago. We are a country where the coca leaf is considered sacred, where we had the longest-standing civilization of America (Tiwanaku ruins) and we are one of the
countries with the richest biodiversity in the world.

I can show you all of that and much more, so I kindly invite you to have a great experience in Bolivia!

A Recent Review of this guide

Fabian was great. He's extremely knowledgeable about Bolivia, gave a great 2-day tour that included La Paz, the mountains, and the grounds of the ancient civilization of Tiawanaku (replete with good museums, great burial grounds, and monolithic images from the people). Fabian is also a really good guy, easy to talk to, eager to answer any questions, and generally enthusiastic about showing off his country. It was a wonderful visit. I highly recommend him without hesitation.
