There are many ruins and historical sites where good photography in a book or documentary is enough. But massive hilltop sites like Monte Alban require that you be there to appreciate the "feel" of site. We hired one of the certified guides at the entrance (250 pesos for 1.5-2 hours) which was worth it. We spent three hours at the site. Decent museum; many of the highest value finds from the site are in town at the Cultural museum. No taxi stand for the return trip, but hopped on one of the many shuttles back to the Zocalo (25 pesos).
