We booked the potosi mine tour with Big Deal tours and I highly recommend it. Great value and also a really authentic experience as Pedro our guide is an ex miner. He's also a very funny guy.

For Bolivia, travellers know about the Death Road bike tour and Uyuni Salt Flats, among others, but the mines in Potosi are truly unique. Where else in the world can you go into a working mine? And among tour companies that take you there, Big...More
