Can't imagine any better way to see the mines. Perfect service. The english speaking was funny, friendly and gave us insider information. The agency, especially Efrain, additionally helped us to find the right bus to our next destination. Had a great time, really recommend it!
I'm claustrophobic so this isn't my cup of tea - and don,t let anyone tell you that it doesn't matter for this tour. I'm also not quite sure about how 'safe' the tour is. However, if you do like adventure and if you are interested in the political economy (past and present) of the city/country, this is a fascinating sort... 更多
I can't compare to any other companies but I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Wilson, a miner, was excellent, really enthusiastic and happy to be showing us around and his English was very good too. I felt that we were as safe as we could be in a mine and everything was well organised. Thankyou to Big Deal Tours... 更多
We were a group of 7 tourists + 2 guides, to go to the mines. We felt confortable and welcome in the mine, with Pedro, who used to be a miner as well and speaks good english. The tour is very informative, and you don't feel like you do voyeurism. It is well seen to bring some coca leaves and... 更多
After some research on the mines in Potosi and reading other reviews I wasnt keen to do a tour however some of my group were considering it so I went along to the Big Deal office with them to find out more. Pedro was very patient with us showing photos of the tour and explaing each part and at which... 更多
If you have some doubts about doing this tour, like me, then I found they did not give me honest info, they just twist some facts to get you to take the tour. I did sign up because i wanted to know more about the processing of minerals, and was told they will tell about that before entering the mines.... 更多
Highly recommended. Wilson was a great guide, and Pedro was wonderful in the office. Such an informative tour, I was a bit nervous as asthmatic, but they provide masks and most of the mine you visit is not too dusty or claustrophobic. This is owned by the miners, would recommend going with them directly.
The guides are awesome, ex miners and the best storytellers, they know everything about the mines, they are friends of the miners, 100% guaranteed you'll be engaged and looked after. Very dynamic, safe, big learning experience. An assistant will be there supporting all the time. They donate good part of the money. 11 out of 10!
Great tour in the mine, with a very nice guide (Wilson) who had a lot of information and fun facts about the mine. The walk through the mine can be a bit tough but it's really manageable. The equipment they give is really good and they take no risks.
My friend and heeded the advice of our lonely planet book and trip advisor reviews and decided to pay the big deal office a visit. Within a couple of minutes of meeting Efrain (one of a group of ex miners who run it) we were more than convinced that big deal was the company for us and the extra 30... 更多
