What people are saying about Oaxaca de Juarez

A day well-spent, even though the tour sequence had to be shuffled around on the fly due to the closure of a key highway because of a crowd of protesters blocking the road. This forced the tour bus driver and guide to take rough, slow, unpaved roads to detour around the closure. In the end we were able to visit all the promised sites without exceeding the planned timeframe very much. Lunch at a roadside restaurant featuring traditional Oaxacan food was especially pleasing. It was served buffet-style, with several stations offering dozens of dishes - too many to try everything - and everything I tried was well-prepared and tasty. They also served a variety of beverages and alcoholic drinks from beer to mezcal (extra charge, of course). A good value for the price, considering all admission fees are included, the vehicle is a large, comfortable, air-conditioned Mercedes-Benz van, and you are on the road most of the day.

Long day but an interesting set of varied experiences. Pick up was informed as 9.30 am but received a call at 9 saying that the driver is waiting outside, hurried out skipping breakfast only to stop all over town for other pickups and to be brought to the centre, finally starting only after 10 am. The guide spoke lot of spanish but gave rather shortened explanations in not so great English. The return was told as 5-6 pm put turned out to be 7.30. Besides these logistics, the day was otherwise alright. The mezcal tasting was good. The weaving demonstration at Teotitlan was good as well. Mitla was ok. Hierve del Agua was great but the guide had no clue of the walking route, we figured it out ourselves. The lunch stop is a buffet only place but there was a reasonable selection for vegetarians too.

We booked very last minute but the tour organisers were very accommodating, getting in touch to confirm our pick up address and arrived directly on time. Our knowledgeable guide was called César, he spoke both Spanish and English and gave very informative explanations to statues or places we past in the bus as well as at the sites we visited. The weaving stop was not like some tours where they pressure you to buy things, it was just a pleasant option. We had a great host who explained the natural dyes used, where the wool is from and a weaving demonstration. We visited the petrified waterfall, the widest tree in the world, the temples and the Mezcal makers. We both really enjoyed it, it was really well organised and paced - thank you!

First of all very good service. Everyone was very polite and helpful(driver & tour guide). The most interesting visit is the one on zapotecas' village where they show you, while giving useful details, how the make products like carpets and clothes etc. in a traditional way. They also sell in very good prices.

Tour very well organized, the guide was kind and culturally prepared. The activities done and the sites visited have been really interesting. The only suggestion I can make is to leave more time for the archeological site (Mitla) and maybe less for the commercial ones (carpets and mezcal).
