Full description
Get picked up from your accommodation in Oaxaca and begin your magnificent day tour of the local cultural attractions. Make your first stop at the famous El Tule Tree, the ancient Ahuehuete (or Montezuma bald cypress tree), which is one of the largest trees in the world and weighs 509 tons. Continue your adventure with a visit to the Zapotec village of Teotitlán del Valle. Discover a community of indigenous weavers who use ancestral techniques to elaborate and paint their rugs. Admire how they create their own innovative designs and produce woven replicas of works by great painters such as Toledo, Picasso, and Tamayo.

Next, enter the city of the dead at the MITLA Archeological Site - a must-see stop on your tour. Here, your professional guide will provide a broad overview of the extraordinary Greek decoration and the architecture of the ruins. After this, head on to the impressive landscape of the Sierra Madre del Sur in Hierve el Agua. Marvel at the petrified waterfalls that have been sculpted over many years by the runoff of carbonated water. 

End the tour by learning about and sampling one of the best flavors in the Oaxaca region on a tour of the Mezcal factory. Discover the manufacturing process of this typical drink and enjoy some of the different flavors on offer from aged mezcal to its diverse and delicious mezcal creams.
