The tour was great. Too bad I foolishly bought it online and paid 4 times as much as I would have if I'd walked in off the street. Fool me once, yada, yada.
this was a long day but well worth the effort
We never take tours while traveling we just do the research ourselves and wing it, but because Mitla and Monte Alban were over an hour from our hotel, we decided it would just be easier to let someone else do the driving. What we gained from the tour extended so far beyond the convenience factor--we had so much fun, took beautiful pictures, and loved the conversations with our tour guide. We look back at our trip and consider this tour a real cultural highlight. It was a truly great experience and I definitely recommend it for singles, couples, and groups.
ovidius United States of ...
Great tour around Oaxaca. The guides included additional towns to the tour as Teotitlan del Valle and Santa Maria del Tule. Plus tour! Book with confidence and don't miss it if around Oaxaca.
This tour was a highlight of our trip to Oaxaca. In the description they don't mention you also go to see the Tule (widest tree in the world) and a textile maker. Oaxaca is famous for its textiles, so it was truly a pleasure to stop and see what they are all about. We loved Monte Alban. The views are incredible. Our guide took us right up to the entrance gates after passing many people hiking up the hill toward the entrance. Mitla was also fantastic. Try the ice cream outside of the gates.
Experienced guides, great sites.
The tour was amazing!
Gabriel, the tour guide, was extremely patient and took his time to answer questions, allow picture taking and wait for people who were lagging a bit behind. Though I believe the afternoon portion of the trip took longer than he was scheduled to work, he never made us feel rushed or as though we should not satisfy our curiosity. Though I had been to the archaeological ruins before, it was still fascinating as well as a wonderful introductory experience for my companion.
The tour company in Oaxaca was amazing!
If you are in Oaxaca you undoubtedly need to take this trip. My boyfriend and I went on this excursion and we were accompanied by two other parties and an English speaking tour guide who was knowledgable and friendly. I recommend you wearing lots of sun screen because the only shade is in the van! Have fun!
Apolo was an excellent guide, we learned from and enjoyed the experience...
Tour schedule was upset by political activity in Oaxaca City, but the staff met the challenge and we had a wonderful day. The tour guide, Moses, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. A very full day!
