Wander the streets of San Cristobal de las Casas with a private guide as you get under the skin of this fascinating city which is rich with indigenous culture, blended with more modern traditions. During the tour you will pay a visit to a blacksmith workshop and craft paper factory which forms part of a co-operative in the city. From there, discover the Museum of Maya Textiles where you can admire a colorful display of vibrant fabrics and clothing which originates in the state of Chiapas, before visiting the indigenous communities of Tenejapa and San Pedro Chenaló which boast a colorful market on Saturdays.

Afterwards you will be driven to the Sumidero Canyon, stopping at the docking pier on Rio Grijalva to begin a boat tour, traveling along the river at the base of this impressive geological formation which sits within a spectacular national park. As you float along the waterways, keep your eyes peeled for monkeys and crocodiles with the help of your guide. The boat trip lasts approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. On the way back to San Cristobal de las Casas, pay a visit to the Nandayapa family and their marimba workshop in Chiapa de Corzo, where they produce handcrafted wooden instruments. A visit to some women's weaving workshops in Aguacatenango complete the tour.
