We were so lucky to have found Helene for our first trip to San Miguel. We spent a half day with Helene on a walking tour in downtown San Miguel and the next day on a full day tour to Guanajuato and Dolores Hildalgo. Helene was extremely knowledgable and personable and we felt like old friends after spending a day and a half with her. Her knowledge of history, culture, nature, etc made for an extremely enjoyable and educational visit. We would highly recommend her!!!

My husband and I just got home from our first trip to San Miguel. We were there for a week, and took Helene's morning walking tour of SMA early in our stay. As other reviewers have noted, Helene is extremely knowledgeable and shares so much information, but it never feels like a lecture. She is very much a "people person," and we had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing orientation to the city. We liked it so much that we booked a full day tour to Guanajuato, with stops at Santa Rosa for lunch and pottery shopping, a drive through Dolores Hidalgo as we were running short of time, and wanted to get to Atotonilco before it got dark. BTW, there was never any pressure to buy anything on the tour, though we splurged $20 on a beautifully hand-painted plate. Travel was in Helene's Chevy Suburban, which was very comfortable and put us high enough to get good views as we were driving. As it turned out, Helene had already booked another couple for the same day, but she was careful to check with both couples that it was OK to amalgamate the two groups. We had a wonderful time and would definitely take another tour with Helene the next time we visit.

My wife and I were visiting San Miguel de Allende for a week during our two-week vacation in Mexico. We were interested in visiting Guanajuato and Atotonilco and after reading Helene's reviews, we chose to reach out to her. Helene was very prompt in replying, and went out of her way to provide additional information (even going as far as calling ahead to some places in Léon for my wife that she was interested in visiting)! The tour itself was informative and fun. Helene has an ease about her which made her feel like a knowledgable 'travel buddy' rather than a standard tour guide who simply rhymes off general facts. This, along with her having lived in the area for close to 30 years made us feel more comfortable asking questions and getting answers more in-depth than we might have expected from another guide. We found many hidden gems along the way on Helene's recommendations, including many unique shops and markets which my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed. Helene was a lovely guide. She was very knowledgeable of both these destinations and San Miguel, and was very accomnodating. Overall, she comes very highly recommended from us. Don't hesitate to book your next tour with Helene!

We spend the most wonderful day with Helene touring Sancturario Atotnilco and Delores Hidago. Helene is so interesting and knows all the secret places to visit. Her knowledge of the places we visited is excellent and we learned so much about the history of Sancturario Atotnilco and Delores Hidago. Delores Hidago is where the Mexican Resolution started and we found that to be most interesting. I am a potter so I really enjoyed visiting all of the wonder pottery workshops and galleries that Helene took us to. All in all it was a highlight of our trip to SMA. I would go with Helene any time!!

My husband and two friends enjoyed a full day trip with Helene to the old mining town of Pozos and surrounding areas. As a photographer, this trip was a real treat for him. Helene was enthusiastic, knowledgable - an all around fun tour guide!
