You’ll discover some secret places and learn more about the gastronomy, culture, architecture, arts, political movements for the last 20 years learn why Oaxaca is called the heart of resistance in Mexico. Of course, tips from an insider about the best food locations, best places to drink, sleep, travel and other important sites to visit.

For now 50% of the places that we will see it's going to be only outdoor Teatro Macedonio Alcalá, Santo Domingo church, plaza la Cruz de piedra and los Arquitos de Xochimilco.

50% inside, chocolate shop, textile factory, hojalata workshop and a graphic art gallery.

In all of this places (YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO BUY ANYTHING) you also will discover many off the beaten tracks which our customers appreciate most you get to see and feel the real Oaxaca.

Excellent tour, the guide was really knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. Went to parts of the city where tourists would not find on their own. I would definately recommend this tour
