MINES TOUR HALF DAY
You will meet at the local office at either 9.00 am or 14.00 pm depending on your preference. Once the group is ready you will board on a private transport and make your way out of the city of Potosi until you reach the equipment deposit, with a quick stop to purchase some gifts for the miners you are going to visit (normally coca leaves). Once at the deposit you will try your clothes and equipment and leave anything you won’t need in a locker. Back on the bus, you will reach the foot of Cerro Rico where one of the entrances to the mines is located. You will have some time to take cool photos of the city from a viewpoint nearby before starting this incredible journey inside the mines.
You will spend about 1.5 hours inside the mine. After the tour you will return to the deposit and leave your equipment there. The tour ends at around 13.00 (or 18.00 pm if you go in the afternoon) back to the office near the main square in Potosi.
