Traveler Tips

  • "The hike back up from the falls is pretty rugged, so you won't be doing it unless you've got great knees to navigate many tall uneven steps." See review

The beauty of the place the only suggestion is to provide a bus with more space between each row and a guide who provide more information about the place .
Three tours in one.

The beauty of Hierve de Agua, the informative information at Mescal El Ray de Matatlan and textile weaving demonstration.

MAgnificent Ancient Art Today
, Apr 2022
The driver was excellent up and down the mountain. However, this is not a tour. It is transportation to some very interesting places. The Zapotecos weavers who create real art was the highlight for us.

Amazing day trip - highly recommend it!
, Mar 2022
The amazing views from the waterfall. Really enjoyed the visit to the family run weave shop too. A thoroughly enjoyable day all round!
Underwhelming, to say the least

8:30am: hotel pick up, the most our driver spoke to us the entire trip. Expect to spend close to 9 hours of day in a bus crammed with other tourists. 9:30am: First stop at an artisan textile workshop in teotitlan. The family is lovely and the demonstration of how they make and dye their wool is cool (but was mostly in Spanish) but then you are shown to a sales floor filled with overpriced textiles. The tour description says you will have the opportunity to walk through the town, this is not true. You are kept in the show room floor to look at expensive rugs for what feels like forever. Then you are herded back into the bus to drive two hours on bumpy dirt mountain roads with lots of switch backs so if you suffer from any motion sickness, reconsider this tour. 12:00pm: Hierve el agua has some nice views but there was only two pools open to swim in, the rest were marked off with caution tape. There is no explanation of anything about the site, our driver simply opened our bus door told us when to return to the bus and walked away. You have two hours to spend there, then head back down those bumpy roads to lunch at a buffet style restaurant. 3pm: lunch. Driver again says almost nothing as you get off the bus; we had to ask one of the waiters for any clue on cost and time at this restaurant. you have 1 hour to eat @ $165 pesos per person (drinks not included) then another 30 minutes drive to final stop. 4:30pm: tour of mezcalaria. Seemed like it was good for those who spoke Spanish, but as we do not, we missed a lot of what was shared. This, despite asking for English tour and guides several times. Again, driver of no use as he just opens the bus door to offload and reload us like sheep. Spent about and hour at the mezcalaria then finally headed back to Oaxaca. 6:00pm: drop off at our hotel. Underwhelming to say the least. A day of our lives we will unfortunately never get back.

Remember to eat your own breakfast…
, Mar 2022
The tour is pretty minimal and not very well planned out. There’s no breakfast, so make sure you eat something before you go - lunch won’t be until 3pm!!! The first stop is a weavers home which was probably the highlight - they’re lovely, warm folks, but their prices are pretty high (if you visit the valley yourself, you can head to the market where prices are 50% lower). Waterfall was great, unique experience. Food stop was pretty good, but like i mentioned, we were also starving. Last stop is mescal “tour” where the guide was impossible to understand. Wouldn’t recommend.

The transportation van was for 8 passsengers, just the right size. Our driver was good driver and courteous. The walking guide was a volunteer at the site, only spoke Spanish. If you go with a group and don't know Spanish, maybe someone in the group would be bilingual and translate for you, as a lady in our group. We went in the pools at the base, walked up and had coconut water before we left. I highly recommended it for the mountains scenary and the site view. Remember to bring sunblock and a bottle of water for the hike which is only over 1 mile but steep at a few certain places. Caveat: I thought lunch was included but we had to pay for our lunch. No big deal but Viator should make this clear in the trip description.

Hello Hien_N! Thank you for your comments, we are happy that you enjoyed the tour. We do our best to keep the description specific, as food is not included. The local guides on the site only speak Spanish, they do not have a fee, they only accept a tip but doing the trek with them is optional. We hope you continue to enjoy Oaxaca and its surroundings.
This tour, I believe...

This tour, I believe captures the tip of Oaxaca! Our guide was great and we really enjoyed our full day! Lots of great memories made on this tour!
Great experience

Our tour guide was amazing. Curated the experience perfectly. The views at Hierve el Agua are unmatched - but we also really enjoyed visiting the textile exhibition and drinking mezcal. Would recommend!
