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!

Our family recently spent the week with Suzanne and her husband Benito in Oaxaca City and enviorns. They did a superb job! We were able to customize our trip to see the things we most wanted to see. For everything we did, both Suzanne and Benito were extremely knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and patient. I would strongly recommend Discover Oaxaca Tours (not to be confused with Discubre Oaxaca) for anyone who would like a fun and memorable trip to Oaxaca. Highest recommendation!

My husband and I took 3 tours with Suzanne on our recent trip to Oaxaca. One tour was of the Eastern Valley, the next tour was the Monte Alban, Cuilapan, Zaachila, and the last tour was of the Southern Valley.

The descriptions provided on the “discover-oaxaca.com” website details the areas we visited and what we saw. Suzanne’s knowledge of all areas was extensive. It was clear she had been studying and knew the history and background of every place she took us to.

Suzanne knew the local people at the different locations she showed us and it was easy to observe the respect she had for the local people, as they had for her. She helped us plan our trip to maximize what was available to see on a specific day on the tour we selected.

I recommend looking at her website for more information about the specific tours she and her husband Benito (a local bird expert) provide, which can be tailored to your interests.

Suzanne was easy to contact and get information from prior to our trip as well as answering questions in between our tours. She is definitely a professional!

THANK YOU!
