My girlfriend and I did the Guanajuato tour with Helene and loved it. She knows a ton about the region's culture and history, and tailors each trip to your own interests. Guanajuato itself is a vibrant, beautiful city worth seeing if you are staying in San Miguel, and the historical loop through Dolores Hidalgo is well worth the extra time... More

I chose Helene's tour based on other TA reviews, and she totally delivered on my expectations. We e-mailed prior to the trip and discussed my interests. Based on this, she recommended a customized walking tour, which was just the right amount of time and exposure for our first days. She is a longtime resident of SMA and is well acquainted... More

We were a group of 5 friends that did a day trip to Guanajuato with Helene. She was a great and it was an easy, laid back day. Helene adjusted the tour to our speed and we had a fantastic day mixed with learning about the town and stopping in the shops we liked along the way. It was like... More

A tour with Helene is a treat. She is well acquainted with the area and the people. You let her know what you are interested in -- history, buildings, shopping, eating or all of the above. It happened to be a VERY rainy day during our tour of 7 people/three generations. Therefore we made several indoor stops for much needed... More

We did 2 tours with Helene and she was spot on in tailoring the tours to exactly what we wanted. We did the half day walking tour of San Miguel. Very informative with lots of history and tips about restaurants, shops, etc. Easy walking and we just enjoyed ourselves. The next day we did a private tour another city. Helene... More

I was pleased that Helene was able to accommodate me at short notice for a personalized 2.5 hours walking tour of San Miguel de Allende, however I could not have imagined it would have been such a brilliant experience. I am in awe at Helene’s wonderful ability to convey her amazing knowledge of everywhere we visited so that it matched... More

Helene was so sweet and knowledgable. San Miguel is small, but like any new place, you need at least a few hours to get your bearings. Helene hooked us up -- she met us in the Jardin and took us cathedral hopping and showed us some great shopping spots. A true delight.

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
