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...

Helene is wonderful! We have used and recommended her guide services for over 10 years and she is simply the BEST! She is extremely informative, hilarious, patient and most of all kind! She has taken us all over Mexico, each experience better than the next!

We were initially hesitant to book a tour to Guanajuato due to the cost, but quickly realized that Helene is worth every peso. She was informative, smart, engaging and fun. Helene took the time to find out what we were interested in and built the tour around those interests. We did want to do some shopping and we both felt... More

We so enjoyed our tour with Helene. She picked us up at our hotel in SMA and took us to Mineral de Pozos. We stopped at interesting places along with way, met with local artists and had a fabulous lunch at a beautiful hotel near the ruins of the mining town. If you are considering visiting these ruins (WHICH I... More

We took Helene's 2 1/2 hour tour of San Miguel and her all-day tour to Guanajuato. We were spending a week in San Miguel, and we thought Helene could give us a good overview of the city so we could go back and spend more time in the places that appealed to us. And that's exactly how it worked--except, we... More
