Full description

Experience the sights, culture, and flavors of Oaxaca on a multi-stop guided tour. Visit the town of Teotitlán del Valle to discover unique hand-made rugs and see the Mitla Archaeological Zone. Stop at the Tree of Tule and learn how to make the local mezcal drink before trying it yourself.

Following pickup, stop first at the world-famous tree called the Árbol del Tule or Tree of Tule. This tree is a millenary ahuehuete, one of the biggest trees in the world weighing up to 509 tons.

Next, head to the town of Teotitlán del Valle, where they use ancestral techniques to make and paint rugs, most featuring one-of-a-kind personal designs. Then, make an hour stop at Hierve el Agua to explore the famous petrified waterfalls.

The Mitla Archaeological Zone is another must-see stop, so that's next on the itinerary. This city has some of the most important architectural evolution achievements. Admire elaborately decorated walls and much more.

Before drop-off back in Oaxaca, learn about the mezcal (an alcoholic drink made from the sap of an agave). Get to know about the process of making this drink and enjoy tasting different mezcal flavors.

Edelmira was a wonderful guide who made our small 3 person tour feel like a group of friends. Very insightful about the details at Mitla and wonderful presentation of textiles. While it seems like the tour has many things packed into one day, the pace was well-planned and not rushed at all.
