We got picked up at our hotel in a taxi, which we weren't really expecting, since we assumed we'd be picked up in the minibus itself. We were taken to a meeting point where there were several minibuses and several tour groups. We got allocated to a 12-seater minibus. The bus was full but fairly comfortable, and fortunately the journey was only about 30 minutes. We changed guides when we got to Monte Alban. The guide was very good and gave excellent context about the site and its archeological significance, but there was a bit too much detail, which reduced the amount of time we had to explore the site. The trip back to town was good, and the staff were flexible about dropping people off at various locations.

El tour estuvo muy bonito e interesante. Ivan nuestro guía fue muy amable y nos guió en todo el recorrido compartiendonos a detalle datos históricos de Monte Alban, así como detalles de la elaboración de los alebrijes y del barro negro. En este tour pudimos disfrutar de tantos colores que son representativos de Oaxaca, un tour muy hermoso. Algo muy importante es durante el tour se llevan a cabo medidas preventivas para COVID, el guía esta muy bien preparado sobre el tema.

the logistics were horrible. I booked the tour because of the schedule pick up time of 9:30 The night before -late- I received email from local company indicating that pick up would be 8:15-8:30 and had no way to contact them We got ready and waited and was not picked up until 9:45 When asked about the situation one would provide an answer Also the tour was provided in english/spanish which was not said in the booking. The staff was not pleasant nor even apologetic

Our guide Antonio did an incredible job. For a long, vivid tour he provided tons of great information and catered to our specific points emphasis. Its was a very profissional tour and produtive day of sightseeing.

El tour estuvo genial, nos encantó conocer más de Oaxaca con nuestro guía Ivan que nos compartió muchas cosas sobre la historia y los lugares que visitamos
