Be ready for convenient pickup at your Oaxaca hotel around 10am. Board a tour vehicle with your guide and group and set off for your first stop: the Tree of Tule, purported to be the widest tree in the world. It is estimated to be between 1,200 and 3,000 years old. The diameter of the trunk is just over 46 feet (14 meters). 

Continue to Teotitlán del Valle, a Zapotec village known for its handmade wool weavings. Next, head for Mitla, a Zapotec archaeological site that features intricate examples of traditional Zapotec mosaic architecture. 

The tour's last stop is a mezcal factory, where you can learn about the distilling methods for this traditional liquor, made from the agave plant. 

After 5 hours of exploring Oaxaca's surrondings and learning about the area's culture, return to the city for drop-off at your original departure point.

We signed up for this tour only two...

We signed up for this tour only two days before it was scheduled to run and we had already arrived in Oaxaca. It was a little tricky completing the email confirmation process in that short of time. I wasn't sure if we were really confirmed. But ultimately I was able to phone the local tour company and get my final confirmation. If I hadn't been able to do that, I'm not sure that the tour guide would have shown up. Lesson: try to finalize your tour before you leave on your trip. We had a great guide who spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the sites we saw. Since the three of us in my family were the only tour participants, he drove us in his very clean and comfortable sedan. He kept us on schedule, yet didn't hurry us. We learned so much and enjoyed it thoroughly!
