Unique tour with a very knowledgeable guide!
Jan. 2020
I cannot empathize enough how well I liked the tour with Caleb. He very obviously loves Bolivia and knows a ton about its history, politics and (since he is a tree biologist) the local vegetation. Whatever I asked - he had an interesting answer to offer. Not only did he tailor the tour to my interests, but we also made stops at the most non-touristy locations which gave me the feeling I got to see a glimpse of the real Bolivia and its lovely inhabitants. To mention one example, we made a stop at a former hacienda, where he explained about the conquest of the Spanish. Also, we had great home-made burritos and tasty wine at the lake.

If you are looking for a tour that is authentic and a bit off the usual grid - you will certainly not be disappointed.

P.S.: Dear Caleb, if you ever happen to come to Berlin - let me know. I would love to show you around.

All the best,
Katharina

Off the beaten path
Had a great tour and got more than the value of what we paid. Caleb not only took us to Tiwanaku and Lake Titicaca as promised, but also added on a few extended stops to make up for inclement weather, which he said would make our experience not as ideal as he wished.

He drove us to tiwanaku and introduced us to his partner, Angela, who gave us a tour of the ruins. She was fantastic... knowledgeable and passionate.

Next he drove us to an abandoned hacienda complex with ruins of living quarters and a church. He cooked chorizo in beer over a fire he started from scratch. We drank wine and ate olives while he cooked.

After going to lake Titicaca he gave us the choice of staying there despite the weather or driving into the Andes to reach the tip of the amazon rainforest. We chose to do that and the views and photo opportunities were great.

Caleb was knowledgeable and passionate about Bolivian culture. We discussed politics and history for hours and even stayed with him to enjoy some pizza at a local spot at the end of the tour. Tour was advertised as 8-10 hours but he stayed with us for 14 hours to make up for the weather when he didn’t have to. Great experience!

Thanks for booking with us, and it was my pleasure guiding you guys. I started this business out of a deep passion for this country, its incredible cultures, dynamic and breathtaking landscapes and the excitement and unpredictability Bolivia always provides. As Bolivia has become a more popular destination for tourists we now occasionally get people who are not fun to guide. This is not a great country for tourists and I sometimes feel caught in between Bolivia's idiosyncrasies and people who would be better off travelling to Disney World or on a cruise ship. When I get a couple of travelers like you guys I love my job, and I will tirelessly guide until I feel I've provided an amazing travel experience, no matter what weather or politics might throw at us. Thank you. Hope to see you both again. Kind regards, Caleb

Different. And not for the faint hearted!
Aug. 2019
Like the other reviews say this tour is different and less touristy than others which was a positive. We had a nice quiet tour at Tiwanaku with Angela which was great. And the quiet lunch on the shores of Lake Titicaca was much nicer than fighting the crowds at Copacabana.

On the less positive side, the guide, Caleb, prides himself that his tour is a bit more ‘adventurous’ than advertised. Once we’d taken several detours on suspension-rattling back roads, he stopped into a store & came out with a large bunch of coca leaves & bicarbonate of soda. Over the next few hours he chewed coca constantly, expressing the view that it is the way to integrate and be accepted by local Bolivians. As the day progressed he became increasingly vocal about his political views and thought it was hilarious to cut up other drivers when we hit bad traffic in El Alto. Ironically he told us that he saw about one fateful accident a month on the roads normally caused by the drivers chewing too much coca and getting over cocky. By the end of the day and 70km of back roads, we were nervous wrecks in the back of the car and we’re relieved to make it back to our hotel in one piece.

I am sure that fearless people of all ages will love it and the views were spectacular but it’s worth knowing what to expect.

"Pompous, rude, cynical... but altogether a couple of nice blokes" While I appreciate you and your husband booking a tour with us, and for the most part enjoyed your company, when someone begins the day with "I am the dean of a prominent financial university in the United Kingdom" in a "you'll lick the filth off the bottom of my shoes" voice I know what sort of day it will be. Most attempts I made to explain the history of Bolivia were met with your husband's rudely timed throat clearing. I usually go over 10,000 years of it in as little or as much detail as my clients want with Angela providing the Tiwanaku era at the site. I never could get into a rhythm with the two of you. It made me wonder if both of you worked in education, or just your husband. I am surprised to get a compliment on lunch. Listening to your sarcasm while I was cooking for you ("How's the "chef" doing"?) was quickly silenced from both of you after the first bite. Nothing like making someone eat their words with delicious food. Was it the pulled BBQ chicken sandwich on fresh baked corn bread I cooked for you over an open fire, after handing the two of you cold beers and listening to your insults, or was it my butter/beer carrots with fresh local herbs? As there were a lot of parties on the day we ran the tour, and I have lived here a number of years, am married to a Bolivian, have a Bolivian son and live in a Bolivian household, in reference to you mentioning my comment about chewing coca as a "way to integrate and be accepted by local Bolivians" I was directing it at the two of you, for two reasons: 1. The two of you looked rather absurd to the locals for some reason or other (they were pointing at you and laughing at the party we stopped at in the village of Tiwanaku) and I thought it would make you guys look a little... "cooler" or acceptable to the "locals". "When in Rome" right? 2. I was willing to give anything to see either one of you with a little coca juice dribbling out the corners of your mouths myself, and the predictable fits of laughter from onlookers. In reference to my own chewing, I integrated into this culture years ago. Be it lime with stevia, baking soda or ashes from a fire (I recommend trying the coffee flavoured bicarbonato) you need to add an alkaline substance to the leaves for them to work and they're about as much an intoxicant as strong coffee. If you thought my chewing coca was uncouth I thought your sarcastic comments were too. If someone can show up to my hotel on time, run an 11 hour tour, drive, lecture, cook, and maintain the hours of the itinerary flawlessly through absolute chaos I would not fault them on chewing a little coca (you exaggerated how much I chewed just a bit). If I do everything I advertised I would, professionally, if someone doesn't like me as a person and are going to fault my character despite me giving them 110% over the course of a 13 hour work day they can kiss me between the cheeks. Most people aren't so aloof and like that I act myself with them. You forgot to mention we ran the tour for you on 6 de agosto, Bolivia's independence day, and that we ran the tour for you on short notice. El Alto traffic is some of the worst in the world when there are no parades. If I didn't know the roads as well as anyone who drives taxi I would not have known the clever bypasses on those suspension rattling roads that allowed me to run the tour for you on a national holiday. Most people credit me for that. Here's a biggie, if you are fainthearted in a backseat don't remind your driver of a dinner reservation you really want to make. I drive in Bolivia every day. I have a family and would not risk returning home safely to them at night for anyone. I doubt either you or your husband would survive 5 minutes in El Alto traffic without causing an accident or having to pull over and quit. Driving aggressively, weather or not people from outside Bolivia like it, is the normal here and if you can't drive aggressively you won't go anywhere. On a final note, discussing the politics of Bolivia is part of how I conclude with explaining the 20th/21st century history of Bolivia because of the obvious relevance. I try to be as objective as possible. Having seen injustices on a level I hope you never have to witness yourselves (kids in the upper Amazon with cognitive delay and brain damage drinking water with 50 times the acceptable mercury levels from gold mining for example) it is hard to be entirely dispassionate about what you've seen. Given your respective views on politics, immigration and us commoners that I had to listen to it comes as no surprise that kids in the upper Amazon with brain damage were of little concern to you so long as the gears of industry and commerce continue to turn in right mercurial fashion. In reference to your future travel plans and my recommendations for a 2 day road trip from Nashville: Take I-40 eastbound from Nashville. Leave by 6:30 am. That should get you to S.R. 66 southbound to Gatlinburg by 10 am. Enter Smokey Mountains National Park at Gatlinburg and take a left onto the Blue Ridge Parkway northbound. It is one of the prettiest drives in the Eastern United States. You can find beautiful hiking along the way to Asheville, and in Asheville great food, music and lodging. Be sure to drop the English patrician act before going out to see some live music. The locals don't respond well to it.

Fantastic experience & Exceptional guide
We had only 5 days in La Paz and wanted to see and experience local culture, history and learn about country’s current events as much as possible. The private tour to the historical Tiwanaku ruins (with a local historian and archeologist ) was thorough and informative dive into country’s deep history. The lunch was stunning; served by a local village restaurant chef. The tour then continued through breathtaking scenery all the way to the beaches of lake Titikaka. During the entire trip our tour guide Caleb shared stories and experiences about the country’s cultural rich heritage, historical background, past and present political situation. He was an excellent resource and an exceptional driver. On the way back we got stuck with bumper to bumper traffic in El Alto but with skill and tremendous patience Caleb managed to get us back for our dinner reservation.
The Solstice Tours is a family company and I can only thank Caleb and his family for an amazing experience and I highly recommend their tours for everyone!

Long uncomfortable ride in a rickety car
I communicated with Caleb by email prior to booking. There was an issue with price discrepancy between his site and TripAdvisor but this resolved. I forgot to pay within a week so the date I needed was booked. Caleb told me he’d send a driver and I’d have a guide at the ruins. I originally asked if we could start the tour later because our flight arrived at 1:30 am the same morning. He said no as the female tour guide he uses has several kids and she is on a set schedule. Our guide turned out to be elder gentleman, so much for that.

When the driver arrived on time at our hotel we were really surprised to see the rickety old minivan he drove. I’ll start with numbers- it was 1.5 hours to the ruins, another 1.5 hours on an extremely bumpy road to the lake and another nearly 4 hours back to our hotel from there. That’s almost 7 hours of bumpy roads in a car with zero suspension and no cushioning in the seats (see photo). The seat cushion is about an inch and you can feel all the internal metal inside when you’re sitting. On top of that, the car engine was overheating and the driver had to stop and add water. We tipped the driver well because he was really nice and it wasn’t his fault, but as a tour company, using a good car should be a basic requirement. It was one of the most uncomfortable rides of my life.

Lunch was provided in a very local and basic restaurant next to the museum. The tour guide we had was very thorough but we had some trouble understanding what he told us. The tour was definitely not worth the distance and price unless you’re a huge history buff.

First of all, as you stated, we were booked full and you didn't travel with our company, or in one of our vehicles. We put you in contact with a driver for hire because you begged us to help you find a way to run an itinerary similar to the one you would have run with us had we not been booked full. When TripAdvisor auto extended our product "Tiwanaku/Titicaca private tour" in Jan. 2019 they made an error in the price, and reverted to an old group tour price. Two other people contacted us wanting to book at that price. When we explained the error they said they understood and booked the tour after the error had been fixed on TripAdvisor's site. You instead demanded we "honor the advertised price", which I explained was not on our website, but on a third party's. This correspondence lasted over the course of many emails. It was quite clear that you were threatening a bad review if we did not capitulate to your demands to run a private tour for you at our loss. I remember telling my wife back in February that I was walking a tightrope at gunpoint to avoid a bad review on this one. I finally told you I would meet you halfway on the incorrectly advertised price, to which you agreed. I told you I would need payment to reserve. You said you would get it to me that weekend. I never heard from you for a month. The date had been booked in the meantime (honestly, the last thing I am going to do is hold a date open, indefinitely, without payment, for someone using threats to get me to run a tour for them at a loss). When you did contact me again you would not accept no for an answer after I told you the date had been booked, again barraging us with emails. The best thing I could do was put you in contact with a local driver we use for airport transfers who could run the approximate route of the tour you would have taken with us, which I did, at no benefit to myself (quite the contrary). We use him because of his vehicle actually. The "rickety car" you described is a 2016 Toyota Hiace minibus with leather seats which he keeps immaculate. I noticed your "picture of the car" was of your stuff on the seat and not of the minibus itself. When you initially said you wanted to book (and never followed through) I told you the tour began at 7:30am at the latest because of the traffic. It ruins the itinerary if started later, so we insist our travelers run the tour at the designated start time or book with someone else. You could have started your day at any time you wanted to for all I cared. You had a driver for hire we connected you with, not us running a tour for you. Let's go over the numbers: The driver received $180 from you (we received nothing). He paid $30USD for entrance for the two of you. He paid $30USD for a local guide. He paid $20USD for beverages and lunch for the two of you. He made $100 for a 12 hour day of driving, minus gas, tolls and the wear and tear on a vehicle he paid $30,000 for 3 years ago. That is the price he gives to people who have done business with him for years. Also, as we are a landlocked country, simple things like an oil change are double what they cost in the U.S. Tourist like yourself who demand ridiculously low prices and spur cutthroat competition among local businesses hurt the places you travel in more than you help them. It became clear during the course of our correspondence you were willing to hurt my business if I did not bend to your demands and work for you at a loss. I may add... In your time in Bolivia did you notice any smooth roads? There are none. It's a vast country with bad roads. It's a great place for travelers: people who feel the reward of driving on a bumpy road to get to an abandoned 16th century church on the shore of Titicaca is worth it. It's not a great country for tourists. Forgive me, but if you are not interested in the history, culture or land of a country you travel to why bother going? To consume 1000s of gallons of jet fuel just to take a selfie you can brag through on Instagram or Facebook posts? I spoke with the driver we connected you with this week after reading your review. I didn't want to write a reply before doing so. He said after taking you to a remote section of lakeshore in a traditional Uros community you just took a couple of selfies and wanted to leave. If you had no interest in the lake, traditional Bolivian culture or the history of Tiwanaku, why did you barrage us with all the emails trying to book a tour with us to go there? Driver also said you took pictures of locals without asking and insulted the family who cooked for you by picking at the food, taking pictures of it and them without speaking a word to them and didn't eat any of it. In addition to offering local food we cook everything from Philly cheesteaks to steamed dumplings, on the beach, for our clients who want western style food prepared before their eyes. But you didn't take a tour with us. As you mentioned, we were booked full. This is not a review of our services. It's a spite for not running a tour for you after we never received a deposit or heard back from you, even after I was willing to meet you halfway on your demands. I was a little taken aback to be honest. I did you a favor by hooking you up with a driver (with a good vehicle by U.S. standards, let alone Bolivian) willing to take you to the lake and Tiwanaku for as low as was possible. I got nothing out of it. No "Thanks", just a bad review for a business everyone in my family worked hard to build. You even based this whole review on a lie. You knew it wasn't our vehicle or our services, just a driver for hire we connected you with. From the first email I wanted no business with you. -Caleb Brewer Owner, Solace Trekking and Tours

So different to what we expected
Feb. 2019 • Paare
Caleb picked us up and was very entertaining throughout our tour with history, geological facts in often very amusing anecdotes about places we travelled through or his experiences in Bolivia.
The visit to Tiwanaca and our guide were excellent and our local guide very informative.
We thought that our visit to Lake Titicaca would be a tourist destination, but we were pleasantly surprised to arrive at a deserted area of the Lake which we could explore while Caleb cooked our lunch.
We had a couple of stops on the Lake as well as few other places of interest before our trip back to La Paz.
Thoroughly enjoyable day.

You definitely get to see a lot outside of the city. The tour was interesting and Caleb is full of information. He is very friendly and patient. We liked him so much him for another tour the following day. He gave us a tour of La Paz, which I was grateful for. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

Tiwanaku and Lake Titicaca
Caleb picked us up at the hotel only the I realized it was effectively private tour for our family.
It was great to have him. On the tour, even as he apologized that his normal tour guide was not avaible. What we may have missed in archeological details (his tour guide is archeologist), we gained in wealth of know lage and tips from expat living in Bolivia. It was great tour, he propared lunch and got us to places we would not seen by ourselves.

Highly recommend.
