Our hotel arranged a day tour with El Andador to Monte Albán and then to the villages to see where they make black pottery and alebrijes. Our guide, Ede, was very knowledgeable and very fluent in Spanish and English. The tour lasted about 9 hours and cost only 250 pesos (plus cost of admission to sites and lunch). We enjoyed our tour, but would have preferred it is was just in one language instead of both Spanish and English. A lot of time was spent going back and forth between both languages and you didn’t know when the English portion was going to start so we would miss some info. However, Ede managed this very well - this is not a criticism of her (as she was excellent), just a personal preference.

Really great day long adventure starting with Monte Alban. Eve the guide has fluent English and Zach the driver, quite the host. You cannot do this on your own as easily, cheaply or entertained as going with Andador and these two great people.

On my way to the tour office, I tripped and fell on uneven sidewalk. There was some bruising and blood, but not enough for me to skip the tour. When I arrived at the office, Edelmira took one look at me and fetched a bottle of antiseptic and some bandages. Throughout the day, she made sure I was ok. She refreshed my bandage and helped me get down the steep steps at Monte Alban. She also looked out for the other tour participants, making sure everyone was comfortable and cared for. Her excellent English made the tour much more rewarding than it would have been otherwise. She was positive and upbeat throughout a long and somewhat tiring day. I also want to recognize Eleazar, our ever-patient and professional bus driver, and Patty, who found me in the park studying a map and told me about El Andador. She walked me to the office, explained the various tours, and made sure I was signed up for the right ones. She's an excellent sales person. Finally, the price was reasonable. This is an excellent company.

I am giving this review 5 stars, but only because of the excellent guide we had today. Griselda was everything you could hope for in a guide: extremely knowledgeable, passionate about her country's history and culture, a great sense of humour. She made the trip to Monte Alban very special and if you can ask for a guide when you book your tour, I recommend you ask for Griselda. The tour itself was fabulous and all places we visited were worthwhile and of interest. We went with the same company yesterday, however, to Hierve el Agua, and had a very different experience. Although due to start at 9.30am, when we arrived there were a number of tour employees running around giving us different information. Each time we asked someone, we got a different answer to the coach/minibus we were leaving in, driving us mad, and making us angry. All the transport left, leaving us behind. Eventually, we were taken to the bus in a VW Beetle - the coach we could have got on in the beginning. Terrible organisation. The tour itself was lacklustre and we visited 5 places - three of which the main reason for going was to sell us stuff. To top it all, instead of getting back to the city at 18.30 as planned we arrived back at 21:30! 3 hours later than advertised. Disgraceful.
