From one tour guide about another!

I have a small tour company in Nogales, Az. I used Gabriel Sanchez on our second 8-day tour to Oaxaca. He was excellent! He is personable, knowledgeable, caring about my clients and able to go off itinerary when interesting things popup. I have experienced many guides over the 20 years in business and he is be far one of the best. You can't go wrong using Gabe!

Excellent Tour Guide

Gabriel Sanchez was our guide on our recent "Treasures of Mexico" tour. He is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that he made every part of our visit a truly enjoyable experience. Not only did he tell us about the local history and culture, but his knowledge of the local food and drink was also exceptional and he shared some fantastic restaurant experiences with us. Despite a sometimes punishing schedule, he never showed any signs of tiredness or lack of enthusiasm and this was a great inspiration for our group.

We were so lucky

We were so lucky to have booked a private tour of Monte Alban and Oaxaca area artisan villages with Gabriel! He picked us up promptly at 9am from our Oaxaca airbnb in his comfortable car and immediately I knew we were in good hands. Gabriel speaks fluent English. He obtained his history degree from a university in Texas, and was also trained to be an Oaxaca area tour guide by National Geographic. He also speaks French, Spanish and Zapoteco. His passion for history and for explaining the sites you choose to visit was well evident. He was intelligent and friendly and he knows Oaxaca inside out. We had a fantastic tour with Gabriel. Highly recommendable!

Gabriel, a genius who loves to share his knowledge

My husband and I enjoyed beautiful, pleasant, serene days in the Oaxaca area with Gabriel, to include visits to a petrified waterfall, mescal farm, weavers and potterers studios, local Sunday market... and so much more. Beautiful people, culture and territory. Thank you for a memory we won't forget. See you again, dear friend. Mike and Paula, Sedona Arizona

Our Oaxaca guide for 4 years on small group tours and personalized car trips

Gabe makes an outing extra special with the details of local folklore and indigenous specialties. He incorporates his knowledge of other cultures relating to Mexico's customs and offerings. He has also been a kind of concierge directing us to local services such as lodging and transportation options.

Outstanding

Gabriel Sanchez was our tour guide in March for our holiday from Mexico City to Cancun. He could not have done more to make our holiday perfect. His passion for his country and its history was apparent from the very beginning... I am disabled and wasn't able to walk around all the sites but I was very happy to sit and wait for the group.... He really put himself out for people, nothing was too much trouble for him. I have travelled extensively and have come across guides of every type, some dreadful and others OK, with a few outstanding and Gabriel definitely falls into that category. I would recommend him to anyone travelling in Mexico. I wonder if he still has his whistle!

About Me

I wasn’t only born in Oaxaca but am descendant of one of the 16 original indigenous groups that exist in this beautiful state… the Zapotecs. Having studied in the USA, I speak English fluently and have an advanced level of French as well not to mention speaking my native dialect of Zapoteco.
Though I mainly work in Oaxaca, my affiliations with various other reputable travel agencies have me travelling outside the state of Oaxaca quite a bit. This has given me, unlike most other local tour guides, the opportunity to extend my knowledge base and experience beyond Oaxaca and into other parts of the country. Therefore extended tours to other amazing areas of the Mexican Republic are also offered for my more adventurous clients. I assure you a safe and memorable experience no matter where you want to go or what you want to do here in Mexico.
Being a guide is my passion and my ULTIMATE GOAL is to make every tour unique, comfortable, cultural and memorable for all the travelers visiting Oaxaca.
