October 31 - Nov. 8, 2014
Kicking off with "Day of the Dead" Festivities, this specialty tour brings to life the vibrant culture of Oaxaca and surrounding valley towns. This week-long, fully guided 'feast of the senses' includes visits to: 'artisanal' mezcal distillers; a Mexican craft brewery; traditional "pulque" and chocolate makers; demonstrations by Zapotec artists, including black pottery, knife-making, rugweaving and wood carving; plus historic sites like Santo Domingo Church and Monte Alban, an important pre-columbian archeological ruin.
The culinary capital of Mexico, we will indulge in some of Oaxaca's finest dining establishments, including Casa Oaxaca (one of the top restaurants in all of Latin America) during our eight days together. We will also learn some of its culinary secrets during a private cooking class with Oaxacan celebrity chef Pilar Cabrera. A unique artisanal mezcal is never far from grasp. The closing dinner will feature a traditional Zapotec Barbacoa feast.
Being a beautiful UNESCO world heritage site noted for it's colonial architecture, Oaxaca's mountainous setting and welcoming people combine to make this a magical travel destination.
Your hosts will be beer and travel expert Oliver Dawson, and Alvin Starkman, authority on Oaxacan culture, mezcal & pulque.
The Spirit of Oaxaca Mexico is an experience not to be missed! Space is limited.
