The trip was really good and the Hierve el Agua was incredible! The food and the Mezcal tasting was interesting, but could have spent a little more time on the tour. The rug place was neat and none of the places you go to are pushy to buy. Miguel was really helpful and friendly towards us, even offered a ride to the airport at the end of our trip; which we gladly took.

Had the best time. Miguel was a great guide. Make sure you bring hat, sunglasses, towel, bathing suit, sunglasses and good walking shoes. Wear your bathing suit on the hike as you get to the pools before you get to a changing room or if you are not modest then change poolside,

A good trip to all 3 places with interesting information along the way. The walk down to the bottom of the falls is fairly short 10-15mins and do-able in thongs but joggers are best suited especially on the slippery surfaces. The pools were really nice and refreshing. We beat the crowds as the tour pickup starts a little earlier than most others. Had about an hour at the pools after the walk which was great.
Mezcal was interesting and got to taste a bunch of the different types.
Definitely recommend

Our adventure of the day went very well. Our driver was most accommodating and a good driver. All the sites visited were well worth the time and expense. I would recommend this company for any travels.

We took a Christmas day tour. Our guide, Miguel, took us to Teotitlan for the carpets, really interesting talk and no pressure to buy. We went on to Herve el Agua which was quite a hike but worth it for the stunning views, relaxing but cold dip. The Mezcal tasting was also informative and we bought a few bottles to boot. Overall a great trip, would have been better in a smaller group, but we understand that Christmas is top season.

This all-day tour took us outside Oaxaca City. We especially enjoyed seeing the Zapotec weavers. Nacho, our guide, provided many
interesting comments along the way. He was very proud of this region!

Tour guide/operator Nacho nice enough but seemed bored and didn't explain much. English skills not the best. Hierve El Agua is stunning. Somewhat rigorous hike so be prepared. Mezcal tasting was very commercial. Didn't have an English representative and a couple in our group didn't speak Spanish... totally missed everything. Felt like we had to buy. Rug weaving place and representative Nelson Perez very interesting and nice. He had very good English skills and his presentation regarding the use of natural colors was very well done. However, prices were high compared with what we could find in town. Didn't discover that until we had already bought something. Rug did not have brand label sewn in so we asked them to do that. It was done very haphazardly and off kilter. Have had Viator tours in other countries that we would rate 5 stars. This one seemed a little bit of a hustle.

Louis was a wonderful guide! He arrived at our hotel ten minutes early in a nice, new Volkswagen 8-passenger van. There were four of us total which was perfect for a friendly flexible day. The mezcal tour was less than expected - more of a small model outside a bar, but the mezcal was fantastic.

Our driver was excellent! All three stops were great, with plenty of time at each to thoroughly take them in. Bierce el Agua is a must see.

Hierve el Agua was really disappointing as there was very little water and the pool at the top was empty but you can still go for a walk in the forest and the view is great.
The 2 other stops weren't very interesting as they are mainly aimed at making you buy items at the highest rates you could possibly find! However we learned a couple of new things and had a long ride in a nice comfortable car so if you are staying several days and have already seen everything you might enjoy the tour.

Sadly this overall good trip was spoiled by being ripped off at the natural dye rug manufactures. The tour was very impressive and the people were so nice but we paid more than double what is charged in the local markets for the exact same product. Same designs and sizes. It was really disappointing. They went on about the special design that had won a prize and so on, only to find that design and color combination in the market for half the price.

It was an amazing tour! Our guide Nacho picked us up on time and everything was well organized. The Textile factory is super impressive and informative. At the Hierve el Agua you are able to explore the whole nature around and we went for a dip in the water - how great! Last stop was at a Mezcal farm. We loved it - the food there not included in the price is super delicious and affordable. Always again!

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time on this tour. We are not usually tour people, but decided that this was the best option in this case, and we were right. We were the only ones that booked so it happened to have a private tour. Nacho was very friendly and knowledgeable, and you could tell he was friends with the locals at all the spots. He picked us up at our Airbnb and took us to Hierve el Agua first. It w as if we had the place to ourself. He gave us plenty of time to hike and dip in the pools. Only as we were ready to leave did the tour busses filled with people arrive. Our stop in Teotitlan del Valle included a tradition dye demonstration and a chance to watch the weavers at work. Our mezcal tasting included very many samples of all the different varieties. Nacho never rushed us and we felt like we could enjoy ourselves. We would highly recommend this tour with Nacho.

I'm a person who generally doesn't like tours. The idea of spending only 20 mins at the best spot only to be dragged off to spend over an hour tolerating a sales pitch is not my idea of fun. But this was not one of those tours. I specifically picked it because the other reviewers mentioned you'd be spending 2 hours at least at the waterfall and they weren't kidding. On this tour, there were only 2 of us my hubby and I, so it essentially ended up being a private tour super great deal for the price!. Our driver/guide Miguel was so accommodating and drove us directly to the waterfall to beat the rain in the afternoon and the crowds. We got there in only 1.5 hours around 10:30am and there were only a handful people there. Got to take some wonderful pictures and Miguel gave us 2 hours and 45 mins at the waterfall. Right when we left the crowds started pouring in, and so did the sky. Perfect day with the perfect guide. Other tours will rush you through 5 attractions and let you only spend 1 hour at the waterfall, but you'll need 2 hour if you want to do the hike and swim in the natural pool highlight of our day. Miguel is the best and you will not regret this tour. The carpet factory and Mezcal were great too--no one pressured us to buy. Had a great time!

The drive to Hierve el Agua is a long one, but the scenery was nice, and Miguel was a good driver. Unlike other tours, this one had two hours at Hierve el Agua, which was enough time to both hike to view the falls, as well as swim in the pools above the falls. Incredible place!
We visited the weaving studio of Nelson Perez, a highly acclaimed weaver from Teotitlan del Valle, and were given a hands on demonstration of his process from raw fiber, dyeing with natural ingredients, and working the looms themselves. He makes amazing quality rugs and tapestries, I hope to return again.
Mezcal tasting was a huge hit as well, this stuff is smooth and high quality. The insider tour of the distillery and fermentation process was very cool as well, I'm a science nerd so I asked a lot of fermentation questions and they were happy to answer with their procedures and tricks. Mezcal Don Agave, amazing.

This whole tour was arranged by Enjoy Oaxaca, they were very helpful and informative throughout, and also were able to organize a car to bring us back to the airport on our last day. I suggest if you are going to Oaxaca, try and get a tour through Enjoy Oaxaca, they're seriously good people.

The tour was great! There were only two of us booked on the tour so Nacho picked us up in a private sedan. We really enjoyed each of the three stops, and felt that we had the right amount of time at each one.
Two hours at the Hierve el Agua was perfect, most other tours only spend an hour there.
