What people are saying about Chiapas

As with other tours that I've taken this week in Chiapas, this tour is touted as being in English. This was a bilingual tour, with 4 participants there ofr the English guide. The guide would always address the dozen Spanish speakers first, speaking at length (5+ minutes) and then dismiss them. Turning to the four of us, we would hear perhaps as much as 90 seconds of material. When discussing it with them afterwards, we all expressed that we felt shortchanged. Be that as it may, this is a most intereesting tour as far as the places visited. Close enough to San Cristobal to not fatigue due to transportation, and enough time at both venies to explore.

This tour is amazing, if you pass by San Cristobal you have to do it! It's an incredible occasion to know more about indigenous communities. The tour guide is very well planned, really nice also the second part of the tour where they bring you in the weaving mill and let you taste some local drink/food. You will be really lucky if you have Rodrigo as a guide, he's great at translating everything for you in English and Spanish at the same time and his knowledge is unbelievable! Would do it again if I could!

It seems to me an essential tour if you are traveling through the San Cristóbal area. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get to know a bit of the local indigenous culture. The tour itinerary is very well designed. It is very dynamic and fun. If you are also lucky enough to have Alonso as your guide, the experience will undoubtedly be unforgettable. It was 10.

We were very satisfied with this trip. The tour guide had a lot of relevant knowledge and was very aware of all local developments. The two villages were impressive to behold; certainly what happened in the churches. The visit to the weaving mill in between was very nicely dressed by the family who worked there

Excellent trip because it immerses you in the reality of the culture of the town and how uses and customs are mixed with the Catholic religion
