Very informative 2-hr walking tour of several of Oaxaca's churches (offered 2nd & 4th Saturdays only). Jacob was both knowledgeable and entertaining.

Linda is wonderful. She led us on a walking tour of the churches in Oaxaca. We heard interesting stories and historical tidbits. It was lively, informative and, yes a but irreverent. From Linda you will hear the stories that you won't hear anyplace else. It...More

This is not a religious tour. This is a tour that talks about how the chruches interact with the lives of the people. As one can see Churches are very important in the lives of the people. Just walking around the town during the week,...More
