The best guide ever is Omar Lescas Diaz. His English is wonderful and he knows "all" the history of the area. It may not be worth his while to do one building like this. He is excellent for Monte Alban and the natural tour... More
The best guide ever is Omar Lescas Diaz. His English is wonderful and he knows "all" the history of the area. It may not be worth his while to do one building like this. He is excellent for Monte Alban and the natural tour through the magic cities in the north. So you might combine one of these ours with the cathedral. He picks out the best restaurants - reasonably priced. His local phone is 513-03-67 or 515-54-00.
