You'll feel safe with me

I have lived and traveled in many places in Mexico and the USA, and I speak fluent Spanish and English. I know very well all the tourist routes and exciting places around Oaxaca and I will make sure you are always provided with the best possible service.

You are in good hands

I am constantly looking for different places and new craftsmen to make my tours more interesting and unique. You will be traveling first class, since we have aquired a brand new van to move you around.

We've got some recognition

I am a certified tour guide from Oaxaca City. You can see my credentials below:



Dear visitor:

  1. When you hire services of a tour guide, check that he/she carries his/her original license issued by the Ministry of Tourism of the Mexican government.
  2. Before you take a tour, check that the vehicle has license plates issued by the Federal Tourism Office.
  3. Do not hire services on the street. Informal trade does not guarantee a good service—only book tours at authorized travel agencies.
  4. Remember: Booking tours with authorized travel agencies, tour guides, and transportation protects you and ensures you receive quality service.
