At kanootours.com we work with the best operators, transport companies, guides and drivers that we can find. We don’t want to cut corners to enter into “who can be the cheapest” prices wars as this always compromises on quality and safety. We offer budget level options but choose to work with the best of the budget operators and for the majority of our tours it is exactly the same price to book with us as it is to book directly with the operator. We believe this is the best policy for finding a good balance between price and service. Travellers who try to save that extra few dollars to get the rock bottom price are invariably disappointed. Some of the quality partners that we are official authorised agents for:
Gravity Assisted Mountain Biking - The best and safest mountain biking operator in South America and the inventor of the World’s Most Dangerous Road ride. We work with Gravity because they are the only company that has guides that are properly trained in rescue and emergency techniques, have full safety equipment and maintain their quality mountain bikes with original parts and regular servicing. All this plus lots of great extras and fun packed tours. We are the number one agent for Gravity Assisted Mountain Biking Tours and have a full range of sample equipment in our offices.
Barracuda Biking Company – We are the official partner agency of Barracuda and we use "BBC" for our budget level World's Most Dangerous Road biking tours. Whilst a cheaper and more basic option than Gravity, they still have properly trained guides, well maintained equipment and are the next best option after Gravity if your on a tight budget.
Todo Turismo – Operates the only tourist bus on the route from La Paz to Uyuni and back.Very popular option that is often booked up a week or more in advance during periods.
