I booked this tour for myself and two others and Wow is all I can say! This tour was fantastic but the guide, Hugo, really made the trip special. He picked us up at our Airbnb in a nice vehicle and drove us to all the sites. He asked what we were interested in and made stops along the way that weren’t originally on itinerary. We really appreciated that and all the additional information. It’s obvious he knows a lot about the Oaxaca. The best stop of the trip was definitely the market. Much bigger than the one in Oaxaca and more of a local feel. That said it could’ve been overwhelming if we were not with a guide. The other stops were cool too because they aren’t usually on peoples itineraries. Cannot recommend this experience enough.

The Tlacolula market experience is incredible! Must be lived! However, we believe that the agency did not send us a tour guide but a driver, because he did not know anything about the Yagul archaeological zone and did not explain anything to us.

Excellent, friendly. Although not a guided tour, safe transportation, amicable bilingual conversation, flexible with time and plans, definitely reccomended.

Great experience, loved the Sunday Market and we enjoyed every minute of it. Also the extra stops were nice and the guide was great!

Big props to Marco and Soledad for the best tour you can get in Oaxaca.
