Very disorganized. If you want to visit the cementaries on the day of the dead DO NOT. Use this company for any reason. They are a mess, rude and improvise poorly along the way.

Its very impressive and very large. You will need to do a lot of walking, stair climbing and if its a hot day or anywhere near hot take plenty of water. More important to me was the Museo de las Cullturas de Oaxaca where many...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

This review is for a company called Monte Alban Tours, rather than a tour of Monte Alban (the archaeological site). They are on Alcala, near the Santo Domingo church. We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon, and asked if they could arrange a private hike...More

After a bad experience in Mexico City where we were hi-jacked and our half-day tour became a ten-hour marathon, we were cautious about visiting the ruins at Mont Alban. Our organisers (Turismo el Conventura de Oaxaca) were great in that they arranged for us to...More

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.
