Luis took my friend and me, on 2 separate days, touring the Oaxacan outlying villages. He is knowledgeable, warm, and open to sharing what his life is like as a Oaxacan native. We learned so much in a wonderfully, fun way.
He clearly is working hard to continually learn new details about his history and culture that he shares in his professional yet personal way. I can’t recommend him highly enough! His rate may be a little higher than others but you won’t be sorry you chose to spend a day with him.
We hired Luis for two days and I would be thrilled to have had him as a guide for a week.
Luis is extremely knowledgeable, and was always flexible and willing to work with our interests and last minute changes. In addition, he is a very nice person, who gave us insights into life in Oaxaca we would never have known otherwise. He was always patient with our numerous questions. He is also a very safe driver. I highly recommend Luis!
I found Luis on trip advisor and I must say he was brilliant . We exchanged a few messages and when the day arrived … he was on time to pick us up and ready to drive us around.Soft spoken and fairly knowledgeable about oaxacan culture and history of this area , we enjoyed spending our day with Luis who took us to Monte Alban, tlocolula Market, teotitlan, mezcal tasting and Mitla.More than soaking in the history I think Luis was just a pleasant guy to be around and it suited us perfectly . Highly recommend him .
Luis was recommended to me by a local friend in Oaxaca. He took me and my family out on excursions on numerous occasions. Luis was fabulous with everyone – children, parents, and abuelos. He is very conscientious as a driver, a guide, and a host.I very much appreciated that he was conservative in his explanations about what he and researchers know about archaeological sites and he did not invent stories to fill in gaps.He was always responsive to communications, prompt at pick up, and with the return. I strongly recommend Luis to anyone – any age group – interested in seeing the amazing sites and visiting the beautiful towns around Oaxaca City. He will make your visit comfortable and very memorable.
