What people are saying about Oaxaca

We had such a great time with Alberto and all of the people we met along the way! It was a gloomy and rainy day but we loved the walk/hike at Hierve El Agua with a local guide (Spanish speaking). We loved the tapestry/rug shop and were able to purchase a few items. The home style lunch was one of our favorite meals of the whole trip, and, of course, the mezcal tasting was a lot of fun. It was a long day, so be prepared, but definitely worth experiencing the best of Oaxaca in a single day.

It was amazing! Balam was fabulous. We went to three unique distilleries, tasted Mezcal all day, Gaines new information, eight delicious food at one of the distilleries and were able to have an agave field tour. I highly recommend booking with his company for your next tour
