Our tour with Juan was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about everything he showed us. He took us through the market and was patient with our large group and was able to keep us together. He purchased fruit that we had not seen before for us to try. His English was very good and he was very kind.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, Mrs. Cooper. I will always try to do my best. Greetings to everyone in that group.

Tour: #263328, Religious Architecture from the XVI c. in the Mixteca region, Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico    view tour
Date: Dec 19/18

Juan was an excellent tour guide. He took us to four beautiful churches out in the Oaxacan countryside. They were a little off the beaten path but absolutely worth it. Juan was very knowledgeable about the history and people of Oaxaca. He was punctual, spoke excellent English, and was a very safe driver. I highly recommend using him as a tour guide for anyone who wishes to visit Oaxaca, and I especially recommend the religious architecture tour.

Date: Jul 12/18

Juan was a most pleasant and knowledgeable companion on this trip as well as being a careful and resourceful driver! I enjoyed his company and learned a lot from things he told me about the area. He was very patient with my Spanish as well, though he is completely fluent in English. I highly recommend this trip, and Juan, for the beautiful scenery, the interesting small towns, and the peace and quiet of the areas visited in comparison to the city. Thanks Juan and To;urs By Locals!

Date: Jun 7/18

The tour was a full day and very active. Hierve el agua is a beautiful spot and well worth the hiking. Our guide Juan was AMAZING. He was knowledable, funny, and his English was excellent. He knew all the plants and geology of the area and after our hike took us to a terrific Zapotec weaver who gave us a private demonstration. The ruins at Mitla were also part of the day and if you have ever visited any archeological sites in Mexico, this one is really comparable in details and history. Great day!

Juan was incredible! We spent more than two hours hiking at hierve el agua and because we had time left over at the end of the tour, added on a visit to a beautiful 16th century church. Would highly recommend Juan!

Juan was excellent in every way. Please see our comments about his guiding us to Monte Alban, which include our comments about this tour as well. You cannot go wrong hiring Juan. Terrific.

This is long overdue, but Juan was absolutely outstanding. He guided us on two days, first to Monte Alban, and then to Mitla, which included several additional stops, the last of which was to a mezcal producer. Juan was not only knowledgeable, he was friendly and simply a pleasure to be with. He helped make our trip memorable.

Juan is not only extremely knowledgeable but also very accommodating. Our group enjoyed his tour of the city on our first day in Oaxaca, and it was an excellent introduction.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for such a good comment about my work, Mrs. Nasr. It was easy to work with a group who did show so much interest on everything we came across. It was an easy going and magnificent group.
