What people are saying about San Cristóbal de las Casas

This tour is amazing, if you pass by San Cristobal you have to do it! It's an incredible occasion to know more about indigenous communities. The tour guide is very well planned, really nice also the second part of the tour where they bring you in the weaving mill and let you taste some local drink/food. You will be really lucky if you have Rodrigo as a guide, he's great at translating everything for you in English and Spanish at the same time and his knowledge is unbelievable! Would do it again if I could!

It seems to me an essential tour if you are traveling through the San Cristóbal area. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get to know a bit of the local indigenous culture. The tour itinerary is very well designed. It is very dynamic and fun. If you are also lucky enough to have Alonso as your guide, the experience will undoubtedly be unforgettable. It was 10.

Incredible tour, learnt so much about the customs of the indigenous people and their history. Alfonzo was an excellent tour guide, with a good sense of humor and able to switch between English and Spanish so easily.

A great trip with a very good guide. He was extremely interactive and did not hesitate to translate into different languages to ensure incusivity. Would highly reccommend!

Excellent trip because it immerses you in the reality of the culture of the town and how uses and customs are mixed with the Catholic religion
