Intimate. Authentic. Boutique. Special.
, Apr 2022
Cesar picked us up at our hotel and drove us out to his community where he explained his culture and Zapotec way of life in a modern Mexico. This is not a mass-marketed, corporate brochure experience. Instead, we were introduced to Cesar's family, the women's co-op where shoes are made, a lady who sells and makes dresses for the community, and passersby in the community who at times joined us to see spectacular museum-worthy artifacts like an organ from the 1700s. This experience was like hanging out with a good friend at his house where we could talk and ask questions over freshly made food and drinks. When I expressed my interest in mezcal, Cesar took us out in his tuk-tuk to their land where his family grows, harvests, and distills artisanal mezcal. The ability to walk in the dirt fields next to years-old agave plants was truly special. Each time we thought we had had the greatest experience, Cesar would take us to see one more thing. We were so delighted at the end of our day to be gifted the chocolate we had made from roasting cacao beans, cracking them from their shells, grinding them on a metate and tasting all along to see how the flavors developed. The day with Cesar was the highlight of our trip to Oaxaca.

A visit to the Village in the Clouds
, Jan 2022
Cesar picked us up in a luxurious and comfortable van at our Airbnb. We drove through the Oaxaca countryside to his "village in the clouds." We were greeted by his parents, Abuella, and other family members who demonstrated the art of chocolate making from the beans to our luscious chocolate bars to take home. The family served us a delicious breakfast of bread, homemade tortillas and hot chocolate. After a tour around his town to meet artisans, visit a shoe making factory, an apron making shop, flower shop, food market and his town square, we had lunch of fresh tortillas, eggs, herbs and Oaxaca cheese. We then visited an artisan Mezcal place and met with the master Mezcal maker. He demonstrated and explained the process and then provided us with samples to try. We had a spectacular day in the company of the warmest, kindest people. It was a privilege to meet them and spend time learning about the Zapotec culture.
Excellent experience!
, Oct 2021
I'm so glad I booked this tour! I wanted an authentic Oaxacan experience and we got it for sure. There wasn't a tourist anywhere. The food was delicious, the artisnal tours were fun and educational. The chocolate making experience was a highlight I will never forget. Cesar is a warm, humble and conscientious tour guide. His family was welcoming and kind. I felt like I was visiting old friends. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience what real life is like outside the city center. Book now! You won't regret it.
