Great overview of Oaxaca and you really can't beat the price! The guide's English was perfect and we walked around town talking about all things Mexico and Oaxaca related. From the Zocalo and it's impressive cathedral to the markets and the Oaxaca Regional Museum, this tour should not be missed!

Complete chaos in the morning! They picked us up at our hotel and took us to a central spot where we were asked to switches buses, not once but twice. Another tourist we met there said he had to switch buses 5 times!

We also were told that our tour included Mezcal, not Matlatan. The tour description on Viator says Matlantan but the tour operator said that they haven't gone to Matlatan in 20-years, that the Viator website is wrong and they go to Mezcal instead.

Knowing nothing about the differences between Matlatan and Mezcal, we were put in a tight spot -- go on a tour whose description didn't match what we paid for or cancel. We decided to go, otherwise we'd have wasted a day in Oaxaca. In the end, Mezcal gave what was promised on the website for Matlatan, but that's not the point -- the description on the website and the tour should match. If it had, it would have saved us some unnecessary grief.

The Viator description says entrance fees are included - again reality didn't match marketing -- we had to pay for entrance fees to Tule. The entrance fees weren't a lot, 59 Pesos per person, but we shouldn't have had to pay.

The tour guide was good, gave clear descriptions of the sites and was knowledgeable. If I were just rating him, I would give the tour 4 or 5 stars.

Doing what: Day Trip to Mitla, Tule, Matlatan and the Teotitlan Valley from Oaxaca
