Great tour. Excellent guide. The handicraft demonstrations are really quite something.
One of the best tours ever! Our tour guide Daniel was very interested in archeology and we got so much information, amazing. We are not normally tour types, but this covered so much ground in one day. The weavers, wow. Mitla wow. The big tree was a fun first stop. Have three pesos in your pocket if you want to use the bathroom there. The buffet lunch was done very well, complete with two women making tortilla based items to order on the grill, tons of fresh fruit, grilled meats, side dishes galore. Last stop, mescal production facility, fascinating. Being picked up and dropped off at our hotel, bonus.
I really enjoyed this tour. I usually avoid touristy activities when I'm exploring a new place by myself, as I was in Oaxaca, but I wanted to check out the towns outside the city and didn't have a car. I thought the driver and the guide were very kind, patient, funny and relaxed. I thought each stop was interesting and beautiful. I especially appreciated that none of the guests were ever pressured into buying anything from any vendors, even though I bought two gorgeous rugs from the master weaver favorite stop!. I'm so glad I went on this tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone else visiting Oaxaca.
A good trip with a good tour guide, Apolo. It is a very long day, but he handled it well. As can be a problem with group tours, one member was very annoying and kept us all waiting for 20 minutes. Apolo was quite diplomatic about the situation. The highlights, in my mind, were Mitla and the weaving workshop at Teotitlan.
The guide was great and told us tons of great information! We loved every second and would definitely go again! Thank you!
fascinating trip, wonderful knowledgeable guide with Don Antonio, good food for lunch. Especially enjoyed watching the beautiful Oaxacan rugs being woven.
My guide was Clemente. The tour was on a Sunday and there were 7 people. I was the only one who didn't speak Spanish. The guide spoke Spanish most of the time and occasionally explained things to me in English. In the visit of the rug workshop and the mescal factory, both presentations were in Spanish. Other than that, the tour was very well organized and the destinations are definitely worth the visit. The guide was very kind and knowledgeable. The upshot is -- if you speak Spanish, or if you don't mind not understanding everything, or if you can manage to find a group of English speakers to join you, this tour is great for you.
Apolo was our guide and he did a great job. His English was excellent and he was helpful and ready to answer our questions. The mix of stops on this tour made for an interesting and informative day. There were several opportunities to buy items but we were not pressured to buy. Lunch was a traditional Mexican buffet. Quite good. Our minibus was cool and comfortable on a hot day. The hike back up from the frozen waterfall was quite strenuous but not overly long. A great way to spend a day.
A great trip. Clemente was an excellent guide. The trip to the falls is a strenuous walk. A great starting tour for the area.
This tour was great. Our guide was funny and informative and spoke perfect English. It's a great way to see a lot of interesting sights in a short period of time. There's a lot of time in the car so bring a book or something else to distract you. We liked the lunch buffet, which was also a good value.
This was a great excursion. Very well organised and throughly explained. The time went fast and there was a lot to see. Everything was well explained and we could ask questions very openly. I'd highly recommend this company as their communication is great and easy to book.
This was an excellent tour and our guide Clemente was very knowledgeable about the history of each area we visited. No time was wasted as our guide gave us history and background information while in route and timed everything just perfectly.
This trip is a must if you and #39;re in Oaxaca or planning a trip.
A great experience with a tremendous guide who made the area come alive for us. The trip up the mountains to the petrified waters gives you a unique opportunity to pass through traditional villages which look much as they have looked for centuries.
Nice day, educated and friendly guides. A little bit of mess at the pick-up with sorting out different groups of guests at a central meeting point, but overall a good day. Note, though, it does say approx. seven hours, but our experience was 9:45am pickup from centro, and return to hotel at just about 8pm. It felt like a long day - we had about an hour at each of Teotitlan wonderfully educational, Mitla small enough to have an hour be okay, Hierve el Agua, and Matlatan mezcal tasting, with a hour for a lunch stop, so we were kept to a busy schedule. It was dark by the time we got to the mezcal tasting, and we almost felt too tired for it, but who can pass on a free taste? Good tour all-around, but steady on-the-go, and a long day.
The only thing was that I was told that we would be picked up and dropped off at our hotel and that didn't happen.
The sites of the tour were amazing. I only wish that we had been at hierve del agua when it was actually sunny
A great tour with a very nice and knowledgable guide. Must bring a swimming suit to el hierve el agua! The only complaint is the restaurant we stopped at: they charge 200 pesos and it is buffet, but there was no fish offered. I usually eat very little and it includes seafood, so 200 pesos is a lot more than I usually pay and I barely ate anything there given that I don't eat meat. And there was no choice of the place to eat at all.
Great trip, very good lunch spot, only suggestion is they should tell you ahead to bring a jacket! When you get up to the waterfall area it is very windy and cold!
Great trip although a bit hurried at times. Needed more time at the Misol Ha waterfall. This could have been managed by shorter time at Mitla ruins.
Initial organisation into minibus seemed a little haphazard but overall, an excellent trip
Efficient and enjoyable way to see the area. Unfortunately I do not speak Spanish and almost everyone on the tour did. As a result, the guide defaulted to Spanish in stead of English. I felt that I missed out on quite a bit of commentary.
