Six of us designed a customized agenda for the day, beginning at 7:30 am and lasting till 7 pm. Luis encouraged us to begin early and did not rush us. He has fluent English and a warm and engaging personality. He has good knowledge of the region. He is a careful driver, and the vehicle that he used was new,... More

Luis is a great guide. He is knowledgeable, patient, and a careful driver. His English is very good and he also helped me with my Spanish! We have used his services a number of times and he has never disappointed us. We will certainly use him again and enthusiastically recommend him without reservation. Steve H from Iowa.

We spent a wonderful day with Luis touring Monte Alban and some of the local craft villages. We highly recommend his services. He arrived on time with an immaculately clean an obviously well maintained vehicle. We were a group of four, we filled the vehicle but were quite comfortable. Luis took us to Monte Alban where he walked us through... More

We spent a day touring highlights of the East Valley of Oaxaca, including the a weaving village, a mescal tour, a traditional market, and Mitla. Luis is very knowledgable and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him and recommend him highly.

Luis was an amazing tour guide! We spent 2 different days with Luis. We had a few request stops, but he added his own stops to make the day extra special. We traveled with our 4 year old and 6 year old. We brought booster seats for them both and the four of us fit in Luis' car just fine.... More

Luis knows and loves the area he comes from and it is obvious in his tours. It is particularly nice to have a private tour because you can choose how long you wish to stay at each venue. Luis was well informed, courteous and has a fine grasp of the history and culture of the area.

Luis was referred to us by our B & B in Oaxaca.

We spent most of a day with Luis for his Mitla Route private tour. He picked us in our hotel on time and his car is clean and relatively new. Luis is a good guide in that he was informative but not over talkative. All in all, we enjoyed our day with him..

Luis was our private guide for two separate day long outings (Monte Alban and Mitla). During both days, he constantly impressed us with his historical knowledge, always delivered with a personal experience or two (making the information all that more interesting). I felt comfortable asking all kinds of random questions about the culture or what vegetable or beverage I was... More
