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!
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.
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).
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
It was a great way of seeing some of Oaxaca’s highlights. Our guide Antonio was very knowledgable and keen to tell us all about Oaxaca’s history
