Our visit to Oaxaca and the surrounding areas couldn't have been more interesting, surprising and pleasurable than it was with Suzanne and Benito.They are delightful people with vast knowledge of the area and its treasures -- both archeological and cultural. They customized our three-day tour to meet our needs and interests and planned some experiences we will never forget, including a visit to a family who weaves magnificent carpets in their home. We watched a woman prepare mole in the traditional way -- an amazing and work-intense process -- and sat down with her to enjoy a meal of it afterwards. We watched an artisan create a vase from the black clay of the regions, using a pottery wheel he had created from two bowls without electricity! These were personally planned visits, NOT the tour group kind. Suzanne was kind enough to guide us in the selection of a lovely boutique hotel and also make dinner reservations for us a great local restaurants! Suzanne and Benito truly opened our eyes to the many treasures of Oaxaca and made it effortless for us to plan this trip. Valerie

Loads of information..presented in lively manner. I would definitely recommend the Frida Kahlo’s Mexico City Virtual Tour. The viewer...will not be disappointed, I have read a few books, and been to several Kahlo exhibits.....and felt like I “ knew Frida”- however Suzanne’s presentation....was refreshing and different.

Yearning to get back on the road after frustrating months of being stuck at home because of the pandemic? Suzanne's virtual tour of Frida Kahlo's Mexico City is the next best thing to physically experiencing Frida's life and art in Mexico in the first half of the 20th centure. In addition to her expertise in Oaxaca history and culture, Suzanne is highly knowledgeable about the life and times of the famous artist. Her virtual tour provides vivid insights into Frida's life and experiences as a female artist and her relationship with her husband, the muralist Diego Rivera. Under Suzanne's expert guidance, you "visit" Frida's school and homes, "meet" her family and friends, and "walk through" museums where her art is on display. It's the perfect antidote to the coronavirus doldrums!

From meeting us at the airport to helping us understand the local customs, no detail was too small or large for this experienced tour guide couple. Suzanne and Benito made our visit to Oaxaca memorable in every way. A day of sightseeing at Yagul followed by lunch at a favorite cafe in the local market and finishing with a delightful mezcal tour and tasting is just one example of the 5 excellent days of touring our family of three shared with them. Be sure to ask Suzanne for a food tour. She knows everyone and they will treat you like a local. Highest recommendation.

Suzanne and Benito gave our family excellent tours of Oaxaca city and the surrounding sites. They both speak fluent Spanish and are extremely knowledgeable about the museums, city and archeological sites. Benito gave us a great tour of Yagul and the Oaxaca cultural museum, and Suzanne gave us wonderful tours of Mitla and Monte Alban. Suzanne also set up a delicious food tour and we went to 4 amazing restaurants in Oaxaca. Most of the restaurants had beautiful terraces and were relaxing to sit at. They took us to markets and awesome restaurants all throughout our 5 days with them. They took us to local artisans' homes where the local people gave demonstrations of their crafts in a very authentic way. We highly recommend Discover Oaxaca tour company if you visit the city!
