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!

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

Helene and I did the San Miguel tour on my first full day in town. When I later set out on my own, I had a wonderful understanding of where things were, how to get around, and the areas I wanted to visit again. Helene is a delight. A long-time San Miguel resident, she know the people, the places, the... More

Helene picked us up at our B&B promptly at 9:00 and we spent the next 8 hours with her as we travelled to Guanajuato and Delores Hidalgo. The tour was wonderful and we were able to see things and go places that we never would have if we attempted to do it on our own. Helene is very fun to... More

Helene took us out to see towns around San Miguel. She is informative, sensitive to our interests as photographers and willing to share tips for Guanajuato even though we had not booked her to go there. All in all, top notch!

Helene took me to Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo. Unfortunately it was day of a religious holiday and unbeknownst to us mostly everything was closed! So we were unable to see the Diego Rivera museum and the opera house...Helene, who was great company anyway, felt terrible and instead of just letting it go she scheduled a very special visit for me...
