Helene designs special tours just for you. I am a photographer by avocation and Helene designed a day in Guanajuato focused on places where I like to photograph. She drives a huge and comfortable Suburban (quite a feat for the narrow Mexican colonial roads!). Her tours are more like touring with a friend than a tour guide. Her insight and... More

5 stars doesn't seem high enough for someone who gives 125%. We did the SMA walking tour to start our trip and just completed the day trip to Guanajuato, Dolores Hidalgo for ceramics, and the general area. Helene goes the extra mile to be certain your trips with her AND your stay in SMA go well. She stays in touch... More

Helene provided the 4 of us ladies with an excellent walking tour of San Miguel and then a fun day of travel to Guanajuato and Delores Hidalgo in her large, comfortable Suburban. She knew all the historic sites plus great places to shop. After loading the Suburban with our pottery, she went above & beyond taking it to the shipper... More

We were staying for the week in San Miguel de Allende but with the beautiful city of Guanajuato just about an hour or so away, who could resist going there? Being newbies to this part of Mexico, however, we didn't want to figure out the buses with our elementary Spanish so we hired Helene, an American who has lived in... More

Helene is an excellent tour guide. She knows San Miguel de Allende very well as she has lived here for over 20 years. Great recommendations for places to shop, dine, and explore. We also enjoyed a tour to Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo with Helene. Definitely we would use her again when we come back!

We spent two days with Helene as she showed us around the sights and sounds of San Miguel and Guanajuanto. Helene is terrific company, and a very knowledgable guide. All the other reviews are spot-on -- she delivers a 5-star, intriguing and entertaining tour experience that is worth every penny. We would recommend her to friends, family, anyone!

While in language school in Guanajuato I took the bus to check out San Miguel. Helene was the perfect guide informing about history architecture and culture we had a wonderful lunch in San Miguel and a stop at a modern art exhibit in addition to the usual places of interest. Helene then drove me to Dolores hidalgo stopping at ceramic... More

At the time of this writing, Helene has 27 reviews, every one of them a 5-star rating. I am writing this without referring to the others but I am assuming that I will just be repeating much of what others have had to say. I spent a half day in SMA and a full day in Guanajuato with Helene. My... More

Helene is a superb, knowledgable and delightful guide. On our first day in SMA, she took us on a walking tour that made the town, its people, architecture and history come alive. She also pointed out the best restaurants, taking both food and views into consideration, good places to shop (or to avoid) and where to just relax and enjoy... More
