Tour description

What lies 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 are looking for another perspective of the cities they visit.

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

In this tour we will not only talk about the romantic part of the city, we will talk about things that may be difficult to assimilate but that lead us to more responsible tourism.

Allow me during a different tour to take you to some not-so-known corners , and talk about those deep issues of our society, and that this will help you fill your visit to Oaxaca with unique memories.

What places will we visit ?

  • The handkerchief
  • Carbajal Garden
  • Stone Cross
  • Xochimilco Aqueduct
  • Parish of Sto. Tomas Xochimilco

Rodolfo was such an amazing guide, he was an absolute fountain of knowledge of the local community and culture and really made an effort to show us a side of Oaxaca we wouldn’t have seen without him. Couldn’t recommend him enough. We had already been in Oaxaca for 6 nights prior to our tour, and had been around the Centros district a good amount, so this tour was a breath of fresh air, taking us out of that touristy district and showing us around some of the more hidden gems of the area. Rodolfo was also incredibly friendly and so open to our questions and conversation. 10/10

Rodolfo’s tour was great! We got in-depth insights into the culture of Oaxaca within a historical and contemporary context. We visited places and learned about things that might not be part of other tours. I appreciated considering the impact of tourism on Oaxaca and was glad to learn how to visit the city more mindfully.

Really nice English to listen to. Above average content as Rodolfo is telling about the Mexicans living in Oaxaca and the human aspects of the history of Oaxaca. Really enjoyed this walk!
