We spent an amazing day with Tanya and Ralph. This is our second tour with them and it was as wonderful as our first tour two years ago. We went to a seldom visited archaeological site, then drove to an amazing canyon near Hierve del Agua where we walked through a beautiful canyon to our own private swimming hole. Our last visit of the day was to a small family-owned mezcal distillery. While we were there, we had an amazing multi-course lunch made by Tanya complete with homemade bread. Tanya and Ralph do their homework and create unique, top-rate experiences. Take a tour with them, you will be glad you did.

Deborah! It was a pleasure to have you both back in the van with us! I trust you are both well and staying safe at home. Of course we would love to see you back in Oaxaca after all the craziness of this pandemic is done and over with. We'll have to head out to Apoala next time! Keep well, Tanya

Well this is a sweet experience. First they never take more than 5 people, Tanya & Ralph have done their homework and are quite knowledgeable. We went on one trip with them and were so pleased that we signed up for a second. They love Mexico and have a great perspective on how it is to live there and they deeply care about where they live.

Lila, It was a joy to host you and Stephen for two days, we loved spending time with you and sharing our love for Oaxaca. I know we will see you back here, you seemed to fit right into the fabric of life here, so I trust Oaxaca will call you again and we will have the pleasure of your company again, too. You must tell me if the neighbors loved the mole you brought them back! Tanya

This was our second trip to Hierve el Agua with Tanya and Ralph. We were as enthralled by the destination and entertained by the hosts as the first time. The "cadence" of the day was perfect; we hiked, swam in one of the ponds (so refreshing) then ate, all the while enjoying the insightful details about the site that the hosts shared. Of course, the lunch provided was very nice; chicken, several salads, homemade bread. We brought our binoculars along and enjoyed spotting a lesser roadrunner and grey-breasted woodpecker with Ralph. Treat yourself; this trip is worth it.

We went to Hierve el Agua with Tanya and Ralph and had an amazing day. I cannot fault the trip at all. Communication beforehand was excellent. Tanya and Ralph were both very knowledgeable about the area, its culture and its environment. Hierve el Agua itself was stunning and we were taken on a hike around the area (which we could take at a pace that suited us and stop whenever we wished for photos). We then had a chance to swim followed by a delicious lunch - all homemade and lots of variety (and the best bread we have eaten in Mexico!). Tanya and Ralph then gave us the option to make a stop at a number of different places on the way home - we chose Mitla, an archaeological ruin. I would definitely recommend this tour to others, you won't regret it!

Hi Lauren, It was a pleasure showing you what we consider to be one of Oaxaca's wonderful sights. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience here and I smiled when I read that you thought our bread was the best you had had in Mexico! Come back soon, and even if you don't tour, come over for bread and breakfast! Stay safe, Tanya

We spent two very enjoyable days with Tanya and Ralph. They are very engaging and knowledgeable guides. Each day was carefully planned to fit our interests and to give us a variety of experiences. Tanya and Ralph have also built personal relationships with various people in the villages we visited which enabled us to view such things as artisan's workshops that are normally closed to tourists. They are very comfortable taking their clients to spots normally not visited by tourists. One of our days centered on the area around Cuilapam and Zaachila and included historic and archeological sites, a livestock market, lunch with goal barbacoa tacos, and an extensive visit to the village where the wooden alebrije or fantastic beasts are made. Our second day included a walk and swim in a slot canyon and pool as well as a picnic and in-depth visit to an out-of-way mezcal "factory." As others have experienced. Tanya's homemade bread was wonderful. We would definitely travel with Tanya and Ralph again during our next visit to Oaxaca.

Sally & Rob, It was absolutely wonderful to tour with you both, and your extended family and friends while you were in Oaxaca. It was only a short time ago and yet it seems like a world away. I have great memories of trying to get Rob to buy an oxen team, and Ede texting that she was eating goat tacos, and sitting on the rocks in the sun drying off at Las Salinas before lunch at Daniel's together. I hope both your son and daughter and their respective partners are well and that you are both safe in this challenging time in our world. All our best for Oaxaca, Tanya & Ralph
