My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 3 full days with Luis around the valley of Oaxaca. We cannot speak highly enough of his knowledge and warmth, as well as his passion for sharing Oaxacan history and culture. Every aspect of the tour was filled with fascinating information and beautiful sights that we will keep with us forever,... More

We spent two days taking day trips from Oaxaca with Luis. He was patient and informative with questions and very easy to be around. He was very open and adaptable to tailoring the trips to meet our individual interests. He was very prompt and dependable and provided so much native insight on this beautiful region of México. We definitely recommend... More

We had a very good time going to the arqueological sites, the arts and crafts shops and the mescal producers. He was very informative, giving the right amount of information, gauging your... More
