Great tour, excellent information and a guide who was extremely knowledgable
Amazing trip! Our guide Daniel was so knowledgable and friendly without being overbearing. It was the perfect mix of history, and exploration. Would recommend this to anyone. Totally worth the !
This was a great trip. The site itself is just 20 minutes outside of Oaxaca so it's definitely worth your morning if you're in the city. The tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging and the ruins and surrounding landscape are absolutely incredible. It wasn't at all crowded and we were able to climb the steps of the pyramids. The 3-hour excursion offered just enough time to get informed and explore the site on our own. Highly recommend.

Our guide Antonio was fantastic! His knowledge of the history of Monte Alban was amazing and he was very personable. His English was clear and concise, we had absolutely no problems understanding him. He catered to the group and answered many questions. I would recommend this tour and would even take it myself again the next time we arrive in the beautiful city of Oaxaca
Emil was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered all our questions big and small. Very happy we took this tour and feel lucky to have an excellent guide.
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.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed leading our tour. If anything, I found the tour too short. While he explained the finer points of Monte Alban's astronomical purposes, for example, we really didn't get to see much of the site itself. My partner and I decided not to return with the group to Oaxaca, and stayed a couple of extra hours to simply explore on our own, and I'm very glad we did. The site allows you to wander in among several of the structures, which we would not have been able to do on the tour. A regular shuttle from Monte Alban to Oaxaca took us back for only 25 pesos each. Make every effort you can to see this incredible place.
Tour was exactly as I hoped. Initially I was nervous as I and #39;m a first time user of Viator. When I made the booking I first could not see in the confirmation where my pick up location was but when I expanded detail it was clear. Pick up was local. English guide great and organisation end to end good :)
