Tour description

What is beyond the " highlights" of the city of Oaxaca ? If you have asked yourself that question, I invite you to allow yourself to get to know the city of Oaxaca with a tour designed for all those who seek another perspective of the cities they visit.

The gastronomy, the architecture, the artistic representations and the idiosyncrasies of my city can seduce anyone who is given the opportunity to enter the Oaxaca of the locals, which combines tourism and the life of a unique city.

Allow me for 2 and a half hours to take you to see some not so well-known corners that will help you fill your visit to Oaxaca with unique memories.

Rodolfo was very knowledgeable and passionate about the city of Oaxaca and its inherent culture. He shared sides of the city and culture we may not have seen! We event explored one of the neighborhoods further and had a delicious Oaxaca meal. Also the market he recommend was perfect, authentic, quaint, filled with textiles and local cuisine. Market La Cosecha!

Este GuruWalk NO es un recorrido turístico, lo que se agradece y transforma la experiencia en algo único, que no es fácil de encontrar. La conversación profunda sobre los temas que rodean Oaxaca, que puede darse gracias a la mirada y conocimientos que tiene Rodolfo, pueden ser muy valiosos para quienes quieran realmente adentrarse en los temas que solo los locales pueden conocer. Rodolfo también nos entregó una guía super completa y profesional con recomendaciones de todo tipo, eso fue verdaderamente una sorpresa! Muchas gracias!

So knowledgeable and gives a different perspective than most tours I have taken. You get a real grasp of tge Oaxacan character and an understanding of the place of tourism and the effect it has on community. Also you get a look at a wonderful community outside of the historic center, xochimilco, with its wonderful murals and workshops. In centro, you may see the galleries but this is a working neighborhood with cooperatives and artisan workplaces. I highly recommend it. This is not a tour of dates or looking at historic UNESCO sites but a tour that details the effects of gentrification on the native population. Viva la difference.
