Thaki is a local travel agency located in La Paz, Bolivia. Thaki Travel was founded in 2011 by Anne BIALEK and Jérôme BENASSI, two adventurous friends, passionate about Bolivia and who fell in love with the kindness of the Bolivians.
We offer private services and tailor made trips according to your dreams and expectations to discover Bolivia.
Thaki Travel reflects who we are and we are proud to be a human-sized company. You know who we are, but we also know your name!
We are not in a quantitative approach and always do our best to never sacrifice quality or human relationship.
We are engaged in a process of continuous improvement, which is very characteristic of our local travel agency in Bolivia. Having worked on the ground, passionate about travel, we are always looking for the best services, from the choice of the driver during an expedition in the Lipez to the professionalism of a certified mountain guide for a glacial ascent.
Regarding the quality of the equipment and material, you can trust us! Indeed, we have ourselves also worked as guides and know that taking care of tourists is a real job ! Indeed, logistics and equipments must be be impeccable!
We will be all the time with you, we personally know all our co-workers from the receptionist of an hotel to a mule-driver of the Cordillera Real. We maintain a relationship with them based on mutual trust.
During your stay in Bolivia, we will really assist you all the time and not only in our thoughts! We know exactly where you are and with whom. In addition, we provide you with a phone number where you can reach us at any time.
Thaki’s spirit, when traveling in Bolivia, is foremost a human adventure. So, we share values we believe in. What are they?
Ideally, we would like to work in a climate of trust, providing quality services, develop new products and not fall into the vicious circle of unbridled commercial development.
In our local travel agency in Bolivia, we all follow one same philosophy, we see the trips as an encounter with the others, an immersion in another country, but also in another culture, you need to know how to observe, while refraining our natural tendency to judge …
We work with local people, they are native from the mountains or the lowlands. We offer to all of them a fair remuneration, because everyone has to live decently. The objective of our local travel agency in Bolivia is to build a real partnership based on trust and mutual respect. In return, of course, we will be demanding on quality, rigor … and good mood.
We offer working conditions that respect all individuals. We will not sell unrealizable and exhausting circuits, or try to sell at any price and delight customers beyond reasonable. The days in 4WD must be achievable and allow drivers to work safely. When trekking in the mountains, the bags should not exceed 15 kgs to respect the altitude porters, but also llamas!
We respect and do comply with the kindness, customs and traditions of our guests. The guides will advise you during your encounters with communities.
Of course, we respect the environment. Our teams are aware of the importance of the protection of the environment. We take down our waste once we return back. The guides and drivers do the same, and encourage travelers to imitate them, during our conventional circuits and 4WD expeditions. They ensure that the spots are left clean. The goal is to discover those natural spaces while thinking to the next generation and seeking to preserve the unspoilt countryside.
From our side, we are doing our best to go beyond the classics and unavoidable, even if they are already fascinating. We want to offer you the opportunity to bring you where, usually, travelers will not go. Allow you, if you are ready to meet, to enter the circles reserved for locals, places that visitors do not usually have access to or simply they do not have the time to discover by themselves. We propose getaways beyond traditional field of travel which will let you understand more deeply the reality of Bolivia. Please forgive us… but we have to say, in complete false modesty, that here we make the difference.
Preserving those privileges we have for you, you’ll easily understand that we won’t disclose all details, directions, names or projects we propose.In our Bolivian local travel agency, we have a lot of ideas and options, so everything you’ll tell us about you and your tastes will allow us to personalize your trip in the best possible way.
