I was delighted with this tour and with our guide - I am an Anthropology sudent and have studied some Meso - American cultures, but my partner is not so inclined. This trip was so well presented that both of us mainatained a high level of interest and enjoyment. We had been to the Santo Domingo Cultural Museum, the prior evening, which contains the treaures from the Monte Alban dig and this really rounded out the "Zapotec Experience" in Oaxaca. Sorry I didn't have time to do Mitla, but I'll be back for another tour. Five stars.

Very much enjoyed this tour. I learnt so much about the archeological site of Monte Alban and it's worth every penny. Thanks!

Great tour from start to finish! The operation was flawless from start to finish. Our guide was knowledgeable about the history of the Zapotec civilization and Monte Alban itself. It's just a short drive away from Oaxaca, which makes it a perfect short tour!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My rating is two stars. The visit to the wood carvers was a tourist trap--too much time for not much to do or see. There was a guy sitting there with a machette pretending to carve a piece. The lunch was beyond terrible. It was buffet style and flies were everywhere. There were women standing over the food to push the flies away! We had no choice but to pay around $15 / person and could eat nothing but the soups or rice which was covered. A real disappointment given all the amazing food we had in Oaxaca. The visit to the potters was nice as we watched a demonstration. And the monastery was worth it too. Monte Alban is certainly worth a visit and a little more time would allow us to see the museum as well as climb to the top to see the whole area.
