Custom-designed private tours for one or more people, economical and flexible. After the success of our Mexico City tours, Mahsa has developed a particular range of tours specific to Oaxaca, focusing on everything from handicrafts to cooperative businesses, including village visits to meet healers, midwives, artisans and artists, trying street food, and walking tours that take you through neighborhoods, parks, markets and ancient alleys, to the side of Oaxaca beyond the sight of most tourists.
