This is a review for the Monte Alban tour company, whose Monte Alban tour we signed up for in a t-shirt shop in Oaxaca (maybe the first sign we shouldn’t have gone for it). They were about 45 minutes late to pick us up from...More
We signed up for 2 tours with this company. The Monte Alban full day tour was just okay and the driver was 20 minutes late picking us up. The tour guide who met us at Monte Alban was really good and is the reason I'm...More

We bought a round-trip with this company because it was cheap. The ride to Monte Alban was ok. After we had seen Monte Alban, we were told to meet at one of the parking places to get back. We were there 15 min early. We...More

A good and economical way to visit Monte Alban from Oaxaca is to take the round trip bus. But it leaves 20-30 minutes late and picks up and drops off on different blocks in the city centre. So one needs patience.
Write directly to them. Google their website (it won't let me enter it here) and their contact address is right on the home page. You will get a more authoritative answer directly from them than from people guessing here.
