The lengthy, in depth explanation of their craft by both the wood carver and the weaver in their workshop/showroom was excellent, fascinating, and enlightening. The choice of venues were outstanding, not just some hole in the wall. Bring lots of cash, the results of their labors are expensive, but worth it for the quality. Sadly, we only saw a showroom of the black pottery. No artisan working. Our driver offered a minimal explanation. Had we not read beforehand, we would not have appreciated the uniqueness of the art form. Pottery prices were reasonable, but many forms may have been from molds, not individually hand made as we had witnessed elsewhere. We were told the weather was too cold for the clay to remain intact when removed from the fire, so no potter was working. Our driver was not readily forthcoming with information as we drove, but did respond to questioning. On another tour, we had been "spoiled" by having an historian as a guide, not just as a driver.

Really enjoyed the trip! Even though I booked a tour late evening and it starts at 8am next morning, the organization was very smooth! Our driver Loren picked us up in a hotel right on time, and in a few minutes the tour guide Ede joined us. The tour was very interesting, we learnt a lot about Mexican culture and visited all the places according to the tour description. We also stopped at some local places to learn about rugs production, taste cacao, tried mescal. The stop at waterfall was for 1,5h. We thought it’s too much but believe me, it’s not so long. You can swim (water is refreshing) or just wander around. Also there is a market on the left, recommend to buy mango, so delicious! Later we were taken to the cafe for lunch, buffet type. There was a huge variety of food, you won’t stay hungry. All in all, super positive experience, thanks again for our driver and tour guide for the amazing day! (Sorry if I typed the names incorrectly)

What a fantastic day, full of experiences and beautiful places. Ede, the guide, is one of the best guides I’ve ever had, and she organized the trip so well. It was a long day but without a single minute that was boring. We learned so much and saw so much attractions and places around Oaxaca. Each stop in this tour was enjoyable. Warmly recommended!

We had a great day. Our guide Ivan was very informative and taught us a lot about the history, politics and culture of Oaxaca!

We enjoyed so much our day,mezcal tasting was amazing!
