Luis was very punctual and gave us the best day of our week in Oaxaca! He provided very comfortable transportation (he... More

based on other reviews, we chose Luis as our tour guide and we weren't disappointed. I sent him a list of what we wanted to see and he set up a great tour of Monte Alban, the Tule tree, 2 different mezcal distilleries and a zapotec weaving workshop. Luis was timely and a responsible driver. He gave us lot of... More

Luis was great from airport to hotel and then 2 days in surrounding villages. We appreciated his knowledge of history and culture. His English is very good. He had plans for our time but was willing too change to suit our interests.

I took a half day tour with Luis Ramirez. Luis is punctual, sincere and knowledgeable. Had I stayed longer in the Oaxaca area, I would have done more tours with him. I recommend his without reservation.

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
