This was a three hour walking tour of important places within Oaxaca City. Our guide, Antonio, brought the many items in the
museum to life. He was VERY knowledgeable and listened carefully to our many questions, which his presentation generated! Thank you, Antonio!

Great way to get yourself orientated with the city. It's not a large city, but I recommend taking this tour on your first day so that you have a better sense of where to go and what to do on the other days you are there. Guide was great and we had a nice afternoon out.

Great overview of Oaxaca and you really can't beat the price! The guide's English was perfect and we walked around town talking about all things Mexico and Oaxaca related. From the Zocalo and it's impressive cathedral to the markets and the Oaxaca Regional Museum, this tour should not be missed!
