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. Get some free time to stroll the streets at your own pace.

Use the time to visit galleries, or find a nice restaurant or local market to eat lunch. Drive back to Mexico City in the afternoon, with an estimated time of arrival at 9:00 PM.

One star off for the long travel times to and from 8 to 10 hours total on the bus although a comfortable bus, but the town itself is great and Brenda our guide was good with the walking tour before we headed off on our own to explore. Unique place but really need to stay there a 2 to 3 nights to experience the place.

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
