Jose was out tour guide for this overnight tour to Oaxaca and he made this the most memorable portion of our trip. Our Spanish is not great but his English was excellent so we managed well. He was friendly, patient and professional and he went way above what the tour described to give us an authentic, unique experience. When you book this tour, I hope you are lucky enough to get Jose as your guide.
