The tour with Rodrigo was fantastic. He is a proud Moreliano who shared lots of great history and stories about the city. I highly recommend this tour to get a deeper cultural understanding and appreciation for the beauty of Morelia. If I had explored Morelia on my own, I would have missed out on so many iconic places that Rodrigo highlighted and recommended on the tour.

This was a great way to get to know the city center of Morelia. I have to be honest--I only booked accommodation in Morelia because it was the closest major city to the monarch butterfly sanctuaries (which was the main goal of my trip). I didn't realize that Morelia also had a deep, rich history with ancient structures made of limestone. It really kind of felt like we were in Europe. We learned about how the city center of Morelia was built from scratch (not adapted from a conquered city). A lot of the buildings once held the accommodations & schools of the founding fathers of Mexico. I was not super familiar with Mexican history, but this was a super interesting way to start learning about it. It was a very scenic tour. Make sure to bring comfortable shoes, water, snacks, hat, etc. The tour takes place from 10 am to 1 pm. Thank you again, Rodrigo, for a wonderful time!

We had the most wonderful travel experience when we went on Rodrigo’s city tour of Morelia. He is a gifted storyteller and we were captivated by his ability “bring to life” events and people from several centuries of Morelia, Michoacán and Mexican history. Throughout the tour, I just kept imagining him as one of those favorite school teachers who inspires you to pursue that particular subject — in this case, a combination of history, culture, and the arts. We received several excellent recommendations from Rodrigo for restaurants and places to visit. He is a 5+ tour guide and I highly recommend him!

I was lucky enough to have Rodrigo all to myself. We walked throughout the centro while he provided not just facts about Morelia and the beautiful buildings but context. I felt like he really personalized the tour according to my ínterests. I cannot say enough about him or the tour. I am seeing the town through fresh eyes. Outstanding.

Rodrigo was excellent, he showed our group around the city of Morelia and talked about the history and culture of the entire state of Michoacán. Everyone in our group absolutely loved him and had a wonderful time. We will definately come back to take some of the other tours that YEI.TOURS has to offer! 😁

We loved our walking tour with Rodrigo yesterday. He has a passion for the history of the town and the country that is infectious. His English is impeccable. He tailored the tour to give us exactly what we needed and were interested in. We now have a much greater understanding of the history of many of the buildings and the beautiful old world architecture the surrounds us here. He took us into buildings we likely would never have known to go in or see on our own. Many thanks Rodrigo for such a wonderful time. We’re highly recommend it.

Having lived in Michoacan and traveled on many occasion to Morelia, this was the first time that I joined an actual tour. Take it no expectation were had, as it was what we consider affordable. We assumed because of the cost that it would probably be an honest waste of time. We were wrong, it was was amazing! Every historical site had its own uniqueness and abundance of information.

The tour we averaged about it to be around 15,000 steps for those who wish to track. About 4 hours from beginning to end and all well worth it. You wont be disappointed.

This tour exceeded all my expectations. 5 stars does not even do it justice, it deserves more. Rodrigo Rosales has a deep knowledge and understanding of his home town of Morelia. He holds much heartfelt affection for Morelia's historical sites. Rodrigo is very perceptive of his audience and highlights information each person will find memorable and useful. Rodrigo is hardworking and engaging. His English is perfect. I have attended many historical tours around the world and this was one of the standouts.

My tour with Rodrigo was very worth the experience and not to be missed. If you are looking for a guide that is very informative and knowledgeable about the areas in Morelia, this is the tour everyone should attend. He is very passionate about the history of Morelia, Michoacan in general and as a travel guide. His English is excellent and most importantly, he is very professional and personable. I was traveling alone and walking aimlessly looking at all the pretty churches and buildings, but I definitely had a better appreciation and meaningful visit to Morelia after my tour with Rodrigo.

Don't question or hesitate if you should book a tour. Just do it. You won't regret it.
