Helene picked us (2 couples) up in the morning & our adventure began immediately. She's well-informed about the history & points of interest & well-connected with the local artists & merchants. Besides the usual attractions (The Diego Rivera museum, opera house, market, etc..., Helene brought us to a great restaurant, (which we never would have discovered on our own), she... More

Thank you Tripadvisor for helping us find Helene! We went to San Miguel and were hoping to get the inside scoop on the local area. From the start, Helene was fantastic about communication, and even tipped us off about days museums would be closed, so we could be sure to get more bang out of our tour time. She picked... More

Four of us went with Helene on a trip of our own design. We visited the Santuario de Atotonilco, Rose Ann Hall designs, various talavera workshops, Dolores Hidalgo and Gruta Hot Springs. She knows the way and the histories of everything in and outside of San Miguel De Allende. She is fun to be with and very flexible. Picks you... More

Helene is an amazing guide and her tours are a must for San Miguel de Allende. We were visiting for the day from Guanajuato and it was fantastic having Helene share her incredible knowledge of the area. She caters her tour to your interests and even points out things to visit afterwards- including restaurants and cafes. Thank you Helene!

Without question THE best day of our month long visit to San Miguel was a day trip/tour to Guanajuato with Helene!!! She is such a delightful person. Accommodating, extremely knowledgable and above all "truly fun to be with". I could not imagine this trip without Sunday, January 18, 2015 as part of my memory book! There were 6 of us,... More

Everything you've heard about Helene is true. Our family was in San Miguel over the Christmas holiday, and it was just lucky that Helene had a cancellation. My husband, daughter and 14 year old twins (boy-girl) piled into Helene's very comfortable suburban. We ALL had a great time. Helene has the uncanny ability to make everyone feel very special ....

My sister and I had a wonderful "sister's" getaway in San Miguel over New Years, and Helene's tour was one of the highlights of the trip. She picked us up at our front door and led us on a fun tour through Guanajuato. We ate at a hidden Mexican spot loved by locales, shopped, and saw so many beautiful things... More

We had a very relaxing day with Helene touring Dolores Hidalgo. She took us to all the highlights and knew the right places to go. We would have never found these stops on our own. We were able to see the insde of the factories and observe the pottery making process. Helene was very accomodating and made sure that we... More

We just returned from our second trip to San Miguel and our second tour of Guanajuato with Helene. Even though we had already had the Guanajuato tour, this time we traveled with friends and we wanted to make sure they saw the city with the benefit of Helene's insights. She did not disappoint. She changed up the tour just enough... More
