What people are saying about Oaxaca de Juarez
Long day but an interesting set of varied experiences. Pick up was informed as 9.30 am but received a call at 9 saying that the driver is waiting outside, hurried out skipping breakfast only to stop all over town for other pickups and to be brought to the centre, finally starting only after 10 am. The guide spoke lot of spanish but gave rather shortened explanations in not so great English. The return was told as 5-6 pm put turned out to be 7.30. Besides these logistics, the day was otherwise alright. The mezcal tasting was good. The weaving demonstration at Teotitlan was good as well. Mitla was ok. Hierve del Agua was great but the guide had no clue of the walking route, we figured it out ourselves. The lunch stop is a buffet only place but there was a reasonable selection for vegetarians too.
We booked very last minute but the tour organisers were very accommodating, getting in touch to confirm our pick up address and arrived directly on time. Our knowledgeable guide was called César, he spoke both Spanish and English and gave very informative explanations to statues or places we past in the bus as well as at the sites we visited. The weaving stop was not like some tours where they pressure you to buy things, it was just a pleasant option. We had a great host who explained the natural dyes used, where the wool is from and a weaving demonstration. We visited the petrified waterfall, the widest tree in the world, the temples and the Mezcal makers. We both really enjoyed it, it was really well organised and paced - thank you!
El tour estuvo muy bonito e interesante. Ivan nuestro guía fue muy amable y nos guió en todo el recorrido compartiendonos a detalle datos históricos de Monte Alban, así como detalles de la elaboración de los alebrijes y del barro negro. En este tour pudimos disfrutar de tantos colores que son representativos de Oaxaca, un tour muy hermoso. Algo muy importante es durante el tour se llevan a cabo medidas preventivas para COVID, el guía esta muy bien preparado sobre el tema.
the logistics were horrible. I booked the tour because of the schedule pick up time of 9:30 The night before -late- I received email from local company indicating that pick up would be 8:15-8:30 and had no way to contact them We got ready and waited and was not picked up until 9:45 When asked about the situation one would provide an answer Also the tour was provided in english/spanish which was not said in the booking. The staff was not pleasant nor even apologetic
First of all very good service. Everyone was very polite and helpful(driver & tour guide). The most interesting visit is the one on zapotecas' village where they show you, while giving useful details, how the make products like carpets and clothes etc. in a traditional way. They also sell in very good prices.
