My parents and I just spent a wonderful week in Oaxaca in the hands of René and Javier. Hoping to keep our "bubble" small, I had reached out to René several months prior to inquire about arranging private tours. He was quick to respond and a pleasure to work with, and put together a series of five private tours that covered all of our interests. Every day was different, bringing new experiences, sites, and tastes. We toured archeological sites, artist workshops, mezcal distilleries, and even hiked to over 10K feet in the mountains north of the city. René is very knowledgeable and well-organized, and he understood my concerns about COVID, so everything we did felt very safe. Javier is also a superb driver and great company. Based on my excellent experience, I highly recommend working with René and Javier for planning a private trip, and I'm sure the group tours offered are fabulous, as well. I hope to return to Oaxaca and will definitely work with René again when I do so.

René is the best. I did two tours with him, Monte Alban and the Tlolucala Market (which also included a weaving demonstration/visit to the wonderful and talented weaver Jacobo Mendoza Ruiz and his likewise talented family). Thoroughly enjoyed both - René is both knowledgeable and passionate about the history and cultures of Oaxaca, and it’s so much fun to learn from him. He took all my questions with good humor and thoughtfulness, and my visit to Jacobo and the beautiful piece of art I bought there was truly a highlight of my whole trip to Oaxaca - I’d upload a photo, but it’s too large for TripAdvisor’s silly restrictions! René, you are a wonderful ambassador for Oaxaca and I am so grateful I got to spend two special days with you!

Rene was an absolute pleasure to tour with! We visited a few textile crafters and it was absolutely worth every minute, his English is perfect and he’s extremely helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and polite also a very good driver! His prices were a little bit on the higher side for Mexico but we were able to work it out and I’m extremely grateful I highly recommend booking with him! Thank you Rene, I appreciate your passion to show people the rich culture of your city and its surroundings! Best wishes to you!

A terrific way to spend our second day in Oaxaca! Our guide, Rene, gave us a real wealth of information about mezcal country as we made our way to the first distillery. We all enjoyed especially learning about the process of how the mezcal is made but we also of course enjoyed the tastings themselves! There was a lunch stop in a small little town that the whole group could not stop talking about, Azul Adobe. I hope you all get to experience this restaurant on your tour, the food was mouthwatering and so cheap! Rene was so knowledgeable and articulate that we hired him again for another tour two days later for Monte Alban! All in all both were great activities whether solo, couples or groups; solidly recommend it, and would gladly do it again with others the next time I return to Oaxaca!

Renee and his team are fantastic tour guides who prioritize safety while providing fun and unique educational experiences. The full day mezcal tour is an excellent value for any genuine mezcal enthusiasts or those simply looking to learn more about the Agave spirit. You skip the commercial distilleries and visit some of the best family owned and operated mezcal producers in the region. The tastings are very generous so eat a substantial breakfast. The stop for lunch was delicious and very affordable. 5/5 would recommend and I'll take this tour again when I return to Oaxaca.
