Full description
Depart Mexico City in the morning and take in the views of the countryside en route to the colonial city of San Miguel de Allende. Upon arrival, join a 1.5-hour guided tour to see attractions such as the parish church of San Miguel Arcángel and the contemporary art museum of the Chapel of Jimmy Ray Gallery. Admire the typical Spanish-Baroque façade of the San Francisco Church, and see the former home of Ignacio Allende, notable for his role in the Mexican War of Independence. Purchase typical handicrafts at the craft market and learn more about the history of Mexico outside the Municipal Palace, where statues of Miguel Hidalgo and Ignacio Allende are located.

This city is beautiful but it is located too far from Mexico City. It's about four hour drive to get there and it took us six hours to get back (we hit some really heavy traffic). I also think that our tour guide could have told us more about the city, its architecture and history.

Very good service from both the guide and the bus driver. I would recommend specifying that you need to have cash, since in very few businesses they have a point of sale and specify that the city is very cobbled and that you always have to walk on foot in case someone has any type of injury. regards

Rodolfo is a proactive, responsible person and an excellent tour guide, with vast knowledge about the culture of San Miguel de Allende one of the most beautiful magical towns. Important to take into account is a trip that is too long, and the journey within San Miguel de Allende does not justify the journey time, but it is also a recommended destination. One of the points where you should improve friend tours is the type of vehicle that you are providing for the tour since on our part we did not have air conditioning and it looked in bad condition. Great place and Rodolfo is a wonderful person.
