Hello travelers! I´m Su, a guru of Oaxaca :) I´m a fun girl and I love meeting and talking with people from other countries, I´ve studied the languages and culture of many places. I´ve traveled to some states of Mexico but my city is Oaxaca. I would love to show you my city and that´s why I decided to create this tour so you can see the city like a local and leave with the feeling of having been in a beautiful city full of colors and life.

Tour description


This tour was created by a local from Oaxaca . If you want to know everything about this fantastic city you cannot miss this tour. This tour takes you to different places in the city that will show you the most popular but also the hidden side of the city to make you experience the real Oaxaca like a local.

The best way to get to know Oaxaca is in the company of a local, walking through its streets and discovering the history, traditional, cultural, diversity and of course the Oaxaca gastronomy.

In this tour I take you to different places around the historic center, traditional and colourful neighborhoods.

For almost 2 hours and 30 minutes, we will be walking and talking about the culture, the traditions, the history, the gastronomy (the best places to eat, such as restaurants or street food places), music, art, museums, politics, social movements, education, lifestyle and mysteries about Oaxaca . And of course we can help you to get some good photos for Instagram! Oaxaca is the best place to take the best pictures and eat the best food!
And talking about food, we always can make an stop to try some delicious food, drink or Nieve (ice cream).

Without further ado, welcome to Oaxaca!!! and I hope to see you soon in the tour !!

Do you want another schedule, a private tour or a street food tour ?
You can always modify it with us to a private or walking/food tour, you just have to send a message to modify your tour, according to your needs. 
Choose a time, the type of tour you are interested in, send me a message here through the application or my instagram page @aroundoaxacacity and we can coordinate the time of the tour. (one day in advance)

And of course, don't forget to follow us on Instagram as @aroundoaxacacity :) !!


*I recommend you to try to bring a cap or hat, the weather here is really warm.🧢
*Bring a bottle of water 🧋to keep you hydrated. 
*In case of being a family with a baby, I recommend avoiding the use of a stroller because it can be difficult to walk through certain streets. This with the purpose of making it more comfortable for parents, but if there is no problem on their part and they want to use it, they should only take into account that certain streets are usually a little reduced for their use. Perhaps a baby carrier will be ideal.

    I will be in the stone cross square with a black umbrella. It is easy to get there but if you get lost ask for the stone cross or the Xochimilco arches. Sometimes the location is wrong but if you walk a little more you will find the square.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Su was an incredible guide! As a guide in a previous life, I really appreciated her effortless style and her attention to detail. I LOVED how she was willing to stop at whatever interested us and explain/ let us enjoy the local food. Would highly recommend you take this personal tour over the larger companies.
