Let's design your trip together!
Let’s make sure that your experience will be amazing and unforgettable. The time that we commit to exchange points of view will allow us to suggest the perfect journey, so let’s have a conversation!
Please remember that our visits have a component of cultural exchange with local actors: our duty is to accompany, guide and mediate between “our worlds”. We ask you to spare some time during your visit to tell our hosts about your country and customs, just as they (producers, entrepreneurs, allies, local inhabitants and specialists) will allow us to get closer to their unique and magic personal stories and way of life.
Our visits are always personalized, we take lots of care in your specific interests.
We start with a direct call (via Skype, Hangout, Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp…) to define your trip details and highlights. We will pay attention to your specific interests and solve any possible doubts. Should you need them, we can provide suggestions for accommodation and/or other activities.
The call has a cost of USD 30.00 and will last 60 minutes. It has to be paid in advance, AND we will deduct it from the final cost of your trip. If we need more time, there is an additional cost of USD 20.00 per each 30 min. Extra calls won’t be deducted from final price.
We offer two different options (see below):
A. Signature trips
B. Tailored trips

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please feel free to contact us for an initial conversation, WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT. Just drop us a mail at email@example.com
We divide our offer of Signature Trips in Complete Journeys and Short Excursions. In general, Complete Journeys have a core visit and can be completed with a short visit to another place located within the geographical area. Pick the one you like best, with the additional product (or not) of your selection. In our web, each proposal suggests which products can be offered together.
Should you prefer a sum of Short Excursions, you can also add them up, at your own selection (just be careful for the timing). Generally, Short Excursions happen Downtown and are made on foot, although additional transport can be considered. It is possible also to choose only one Short Excursion.
Our minimum working time is 3 hours and the maximum is 8.
If your dream trip is not among Signature Trips, check “Tailored Trips”, so that we can figure it out together.
Perhaps the most entertaining option is when you tell us your interests and we construct your trip together. We love adventure and discovery, as long as you are ready for it. According to your availability of time, we can visit a new project, roam rural areas, meet artists, attend a special event. Let’s construct an itinerary that fits your quest and plans to discover!
So if you are a fan of the unpaved road and unbeaten path, this could be your best option. We adjust to your budget and way of traveling, should it be a visit to Apoala cascade, Yosondúa incredible magic, a place with dinosaur traces, the “lost mountains”, or any other dream.
Of course, your security comes first, but keep in mind that roads can be full of dirt, beds (or tents) a bit uncomfy and food, bizarre. Just make sure that you are prepared to be a bit adventurous.
Write us and we’ll gladly prepare something for you… And keep the secret: this is one of our favorite types of trip!
As in every trip, there are important rules to be followed in order to have a safer and better trip. Here are some of the most important for us. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any inquiry!
- A “normal” day starts at 9AM, commonly after breakfast. Every 4 hours we do contemplate at least 40 minutes for a “lunch stop” or a “lunch pause”, either in a restaurant of a stopover in the road.
- We do not work with groups larger than 10 people. In some cases, even less (depending on the road conditions and type of trip)
- Some visits can be performed without car, as long as you are willing and ready to walk in downtown Oaxaca for at least 3 hours.
- Taking photographs can be done only with the consent of the person that you want to picture. If your interest is photography, please let us know in advance.
- At Andar&Ego we promote encounters between persons: do not be surprised if during your trip our host asks about your culture or the place where you live. We invite you to share your personal experience.
- All trip reservations and payments have to be fully covered in advance, at least one week before your arrival to Oaxaca.
- Prices are subject to last minute change until the moment you pay them. Proposals have a specific validity.
- Our trip proposals are subject to variations of even cancellations, due to our allies unavailability. Normally, no booking will be cancelled once it has been paid, but if such situation ever occurs we will offer you the closest solution. If no agreement is reached, you will receive your full refund.
- If you made a payment and wish to cancel your trip, a 20% charge will be applied over your refund.
- For travel agencies or tourism operators: you can offer our products with a 7% commission (over our quoted price) for your company.
The minimal cost per journey is USD 240.00 It includes up to three persons, for a full day excursion. We use our own mobility and you will be joined two guides. We also offer soft drinks –water and beer at limited proportions– as well as appetizers and a light lunch (sandwich, cake, coffee). We also include the entrance to places that require a payment or a voluntary donation to hosts.
Cost per additional person. USD 70.00
This cost considers transport. The final quote can change depending on the “Tailored trip” design, for example: not using transport, visiting projects in the city in a shorter time or, in the opposite way, traveling to distant areas outside the city that might require additional costs… So, let’s build it together!
