Gabriel S.

Santa Cruz Xoxocotlán, Oaxaca, Mexico

Coming from an Indigenous village in the state of Oaxaca, motivated me to study history history in a foreign country in this case the U.

S. I chose that career to understand the history of many cultures and compare it to mine, which is Zapoteco in my case.

I chose to be a Certified Tour guide in Mexico in order to share my knowledge which travelers interested in the mexican history, I currently live in Oaxaca because this is home, there is so much to share about Oaxaca I never get tired of sharing my culture.

My personal experiences from traveling has made me a better guide and also has motivated me to learn even more, about other cultures. Being able to guide in about 20 states in Mexico has giving me more knowledge about my country, working with Europeans has made me also a more knowledgeable guide comparing the history and architecture in Oaxaca and Mexico in general.

I am truly in love with what I have been doing for over 8 years, there might be other guides with more years of experience but there will never be someone that will out prepare me for every tour. I wake up everyday with 100% energy to give it all to travelers.

Traveling is not just a vacation is about making memories and that is what I do with travelers in order to take memories from Oaxaca back home and to return in the future.

I am always open to changes of the service you desire, to make your trip unique.

As Ibn Battuta once said "Traveling- it leaves you speechless, then turns you in a storyteller"

I will give the BEST QUALITY service you deserve.
