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.
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 :)

Excellent guide. A great tour
Amazing- breathtaking views
My husband and I were very pleased with this tour. We were picked up at our hotel in a very clean, air-conditioned bus with a very friendly driver. Our tour to Monte Alban was with only 1 other couple. Moses, our guide, spoke very good English and was extremely friendly and attentive. At the site, we were the only 2 on the English-speaking tour so we got our own guide. Moses spent a lot of time explaining not only the archeological history but the use of plants and other resources as well. We found this quite interesting. We had the last hour to roam the site, visit the museum, or shop the gift shop. Perfect 1/2 day trip! Glad we read the other reviews that recommended hats, sunscreen and water too. Quite useful.
