You need to be more specific. What sort of assistance do you require? Do you have mobility problems? When and and for how long do you require the service? Do you want someone who speaks English? Where do you want to go? How do you wish to travel?

Thanks for your reply. I will travel by public transportation (bus) from Piedras Negras, Coahuila (Eagle Pass, Texas) to Monterrey and then hopefully on a non-stop bus to SMA. I have attempted to locate on the internet bus schedules, and its next to impossible, and are they reliable? ETN is a bus company that has been recommended. Duration of trip will be May 12 thru May 17, 2011. Plans are to leave May 12 mid day and arriving in SMA the following morning May 13, and departing May 18. Mobility and language are not a problem. Dates of service are May13 (PM) thru May 17 (PM). SMA will be resident city with day trips to Queretaro, Guanajuato, and Dolores Hidalgo and surrounding countryside.

The rationale for a travel escort is to make the most efficient use of time. Have no desire to consume time locating places etc (open to suggestions). Hopefully the person would know the history of SMA and the surrounding cities. Travel for day trips would be by public transportation. A mature young person (male) would be perfect as an escort. A nominal salary would be paid for service on a daily basis as well as meals. Any suggestions as to the amount to be paid is appreciated.

i see you have posted your question on the Civil List, where you are morelikely to get a response than here. I fear you are being over-optimistic about finding someone with the right skills apart from a professional tour guide/driver. However, all the places you intend to visit can be visited very easily on your own by local bus.

There are no buses from Monterrey to San Miguel. You will need to change inGuadalajara or possiblyGuanajuato. From there, there is first-class service on Primera Plus or ETN several times a day.

There are direct buses from Texas all the way toSan Miguel. They are not as comfortable as the ETN or PP buses but will get you here in less than 24 hours.

I believe you can book them through Greyhound.
