What people are saying about San Cristóbal de las Casas

Incredible tour, learnt so much about the customs of the indigenous people and their history. Alfonzo was an excellent tour guide, with a good sense of humor and able to switch between English and Spanish so easily.

A great excursion with a very good Alfonso guide. He was able to adapt to all the participants and did not hesitate to translate into several languages. His explanations were sharp, complete and mastered.

A great trip with a very good guide. He was extremely interactive and did not hesitate to translate into different languages to ensure incusivity. Would highly reccommend!

The tour is amazing on its own but the addition of our extremely friendly, fun, and informative English-speaking guide Eduardo made it an even better experience!

Excellent customer service, a bit unpunctual when picking up. They comply with what is offered.
