If you have only a day in Oaxaca, do this tour!
Elizabeth_A

This is an amazing tour. Our guide Moises was friendly, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable. Every stop was delightful. Nelson Perez’ workshop tour was over the top. If you have any knowledge or experience with textile art, you will want to stay there all day! My friend wants to apprentice with him. The Mezcal tasting was a little “meh” as the staff was pushy, asking for tips even before we started. The village and ruins of Mitla was great. While smaller than Monte Albán, you can access more of it. The market there was generally cheaper than in the city of Oaxaca. At the candle making workshop, our guide was truly darling and she let us play with the wax and molds as long as we wished. Their products are unique and we got severa to take home as gifts. A couple of important things you should know before you go: the climb to the caves is STRENUOUS! There is an elevation gain of at least 1,000 feet in about a mile. The trail has tight switchbacks of very steep rock stairs with few hand rails. The flat stretches are covered with tiny rocks and a slip would be truly disastrous. The caves are amazing, though, and give a glimpse into life 10,000 years ago. Boots would be ideal, but we did okay in regular athletic shoes. The other thing is that if your Mezcal tour is at the “El ReyDe Matatlán”, the bathroom charges $4 pesos to get in and when we finally got in, it was dirty with very little paper inside. That part of the tour was the only disappointment and compared to the magic of everything else, it doesn’t matter.

This ia a very good trip. Lots to see and remember. Due to the COVID-19, some of the Placer remain closes as May 2021. I hope we can return to some kind of normalcy soon.

Antonio was the guide for our group and he was fantastic - he is a native Oaxacan, and he was a wealth of knowledge about every place we visited. A few things to note: due to COVID the Tule tree area is closed, so tour vans can only drive past it. Parts of Mitla are restricted, and the usual enormous market in Tlacolula is not taking place. We went to a bustling and fascinating food market in Tlacolula instead. I would love to come back to Oaxaca and do this tour again after COVID goes away!

Damn you, COVID

This experience was really amazing! The education we received in Teotitlan del Valle was wonderful. However, I only gave it 3 stars because COVID-19 changed our plans and the company did nothing to refund any portion of our cost. We did not visit Hierve or Mitla as they were closed. Instead, we went on a hike that could be considered strenuous to those not accustomed to the altitude nor the incline. Not to mention, we weren’t at all dressed properly for the hike. Im thankful we had a great group with us so it made the experiences that much better and our guide Antonio was a sweetheart.

Nice tour

Nice tour with interesting stops (best ones were Teotitlan del Valle and Hierve el Agua), also buffet lunch was good. The guide was friendly. We liked less the mezcal tasting part because there are dozens of other people and tourist buses, the site is very busy and explanation is reduced to a minimum. But otherwise good experience !

Full day of memorable adventures!

This tour includes all of the top sights of Oaxaca all in one full day! I didn’t have my own car, so never would have been able to reach these far flung sights on my own. My favorite part was Hierve el Agua which consists of pools from a mineral spring in an unbelievably scenic setting. I brought my bathing suit and enjoyed swimming in the waters during our stay. I took a zillion photos of the way the pools shelf out and overlook a beautiful valley far below as well as the amazing waterfall where the mineral deposits create the look of rushing waters. My description doesn’t do justice to this beautiful site. Remember to bring your bathing suit!

Review of one day tour of Tule, Mitla, etc

Excellent overview of sights outside Oaxaca. Felt a little bit rushed at Tule and Mitla but understood we had to cover a lot in a day. Guide spoke both English and Spanish. Overall a fantastic tour.
