Excellent tour, the guide was really knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. Went to parts of the city where tourists would not find on their own. I would definately recommend this tour

Our guide proved to be enthusiastic, engaging, and very good at exposing first time visitors to Oaxaca’s rich and varied history. One segment of the tour explored Mexico’s checkered political history through the work of local artists, which - at least for this tourist - served only to further pique my interest in this culture. I highly recommend this tour group!

Me parece que el tiempo dedicado a hablar de política es excesivo. Creo que si ese tiempo está de sobra en el tour. Demasiado largo o demasiada información política que lo vuelve tedioso.

Hola Luis muchas gracias por tu comentario agradecemos tu opinión. Nosotros creemos que es importante que los turistas sepan la política histórica del país, el día que usted vino a nuestro tour todos terminaron muy satisfechos con nuestro servicio. Lamentamos que para usted no lo haya sido, también al inicio del tour les damos una explicación de los temas y lugares a vicitar para que sí alguien no le interesa es libre de decidir si se quedan o no. Saludos
