We enjoyed this tour. The guide was knowledgeable. The Mezcal tasting was interesting and they broke us into two small groups for English speakers and Spanish speakers. The pools were not worth the time.

It was an extensive tour for the price!!! Lovely tour guide, van was comfortable, the drive was very scenic. I'd be sure to bring extra cash. There are some additional expenses I was unprepared for lunch buffet and a few entrance fees were all cash only. That being said, I'd recommend the tour for sure!!! You really do get to see a lot of cool stuff!!

One word: Fantastic!!! The hierve el agua waterfalls offers a fantastic view of the valley bellow besides the amazing view of the waterfalls. My sisterw and I walked to the top of the waterfalls about a 20-25 fast minute walk There are a few areas that are slippery but there are a couple of ways to get there and the walk is worth it because the scenery is amazing. We visited in July, which is the rainy season and the mountains had a lush green. Mitla, although it is smaller than Monte Alban, is also beautiful for the details of its stone carvings. I loved Oaxaca and its people. I liked this tour because it has several thing of what Oaxaca has to offer.

The sights on this tour were amazing! I am really glad I went on it. The biggest issue is that I was told it was a tour in English but no one on the tour spoke English. Luckily I know a little bit of Spanish and was able to get by, but I think this is good to know for anyone looking to take this tour! I really enjoyed the Mitla ruins the history there is great. And the Mezcal tour and tasting was mind-blowing. I would definitely recommend this tour, but I also recommend knowing Spanish!
