They had tours in Spanish and English. The house was beautiful, I especially liked all the art in the bedrooms. The pool and dining rooms were great. They definitely deserve a small donation!

John Venator, the owner of the house and collection, is an inspiration of how to enjoy a collection and give back to the community. The colonial house has been remodeled in a way to maintain the feeling of the colonial structure, display the tremendous art collection and be livable with modern conveniences. Many of the pieces of art were done... More

How generous of this family to share their art with visitors to Valladolid. My group along with our tour guide from 1% Travel enjoyed a brief tour of the home and its art! And they allowed us to take photographs which were some of the most colorful I was able to take while on tour in Mexico.

Inside the walls of a beautiful 300 year old hacienda style mansion, yet fully restored and functional you will find Casa de los Venados, featuring over maybe 2,3 thousand pieces of Mexican folkloric art work, from hand made piñatas out of "papel mache" to incredible paintings and carefully placed sculptures! Casa de los Venados is as warm and welcoming as... More

It was a hot dusty moring, and as I turned up at 10 am, I was half expecting the daily tour to be cancelled due to lack of visitors. Not a bit of it.. The tour stared with just me and a young woman from Australia. Our guide was lavely, spoke perfect English and seemed to genuinely enjoy telling us... More

Wow....what glowing review! We are so glad you enjoyed the visit and tour of our home. We say all tours are in fact "custom" because people ask different questions and some take photos and some do not. However, most tours last about 45 minutes...,but we have periodically had tours as long as yours...as the guest was very interested in learning... More

Our extremely knowledgeable and articulate guide (Arlando?) did a wonderful job of explaining so many of the artifacts in this beautiful home. Visiting is a definite must during any stay in Vallodalid. So informative about the culture and Mexico. Thank you, John, for allowing us to visit.

Warning this place is HOT. I was hot my whole vacation but really hot here. Wear your coolest clothing. A great place to visit. A wealthy American bought a historic property (more like a mansion) and restored it and filled it with his personal collection of Mayan Folk Art. He allows tours and the money goes to local charities. Even... More

Truly an unexpected treasure, this rich collection of authentic Mexican folk art and stunning architecture was the highlight of our stay in Valladolid! A gracious and knowledgable docent met us at the door and provided a very thorough and detailed tour of each room and artifact including the history of the museum-like Casa.
