We had exclusively arranged with the charming Luis to explore Oaxaca for the Day of the Dead. Flying into Mexico City and transfer to a domestic into Oaxaca where we met Luis and drove the 6.5 km into town. The temperature was pleasant at 26 degrees, and at night a perfect 14. We soaked up the atmosphere in the city's... More

This was out first trip to Mexico and had found Luis on Tripadvisor. We had a fabulous day out. Luis was a great guide. Polite, knowledgable and friendly, we learnt more about Mexico (both ancient and modern) than on the rest of the trip combined. His car is super comfy and I would happily recommend him, and would use his... More

we just returned from Oaxaca and had 2 days with Luis. He adjusted his schedule to meet our needs and was very helpful and spoke fine English (plus gave us some grammar lessons in Spanish!). He drove carefully and never pushed any shop or agenda. Thanks Luis..

My girlfriend and I had limited time in Oaxaca. We used Luis as our tour guide based on his positive reviews. I have to say that the reviews are accurate. Luis is knowledgeable, professional, and keenly interested in improving his knowledge and the experience for his clients. It was wonderful to have him show us Monte Alban, Mitla, and Teotitlan...

Luis was an amazing travel guide / resource for transportation. He is kind, professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and an all-around great guy! We had a wonderful time with him, as he prepared a very full and vibrant itinerary for us. He was able to cater the trip to our interests and needs, and include some amazing authentic local tips and historical... More

He took us to everywhere we wanted to go and 2 places we had never heard off. It was our second trip to Oaxaca but we were with friends who hadn't been before.... More

Returning to Oaxaca for this winter's vacation, I immediately got in touch with Antonio Moctezuma, my wonderful guide and driver from last year. Together we planned two full day trips, one to Hierve El Agua, the other high up in the mountains to Benito Juarez. ( As someone vulnerable to motion sickness, I can attest to Antonio's superb driving. )As... More

I spent a week in Oaxaca, Mexico and had a private guide named Roberto Gavidia. I would highly recommend him. He and his wife picked me up at the airport and I set the schedule of what I wanted to do each day. Best, he brought me to and I personally met the local artisans in the surrounding area. I... More

Friends who live near Oaxaca recommended Luis Ramirez (toursinoax@gmail.com) to us several years ago, and we have thoroughly appreciated his guide service and his company ever since. Luis is knowledgeable, hard-working, flexible, and kind; his English gets better every year; and he is very patient with my limited Spanish. He does an excellent job of balancing the tedious parts of... More
