A jam packed day visiting Monte Alban and local arts and craft makers. Ede was very knowledgeable and friendly. Considering the price of the tour, entry tickets and lunch ($200 pesos) combined, the tour represented value for money. A half day tour visiting Monte Alban, lunch and 1 local maker might be more suitable for some people.

our tour guide was the best and worth the money. only thing to be aware is the 200mx buffet ... drinks not included and the beers are double the price, found out the hard way

Very informative. I have been here before several times and learned many new things. The guide was fabulous. And very personable.

Monte Albán is such an impressive place and the tour was packed with great stops. Had a great time and can highly recommend.

Very enjoyable, the guide was pleasant and the lunch buffet was excellent!
