Miguel was our very educated & humorous tour guide. He can tell you everything you need to know about the history then and now about every town we pass, on the way and about San Sebastian. He has been there many times himself. He is fascinating to listen to. The felt very safe with the driver as well. The town of Sebastian is very old and Miguel brought us on a walking tour of the town, explaining everything. The town seems so European. It is so charming. The included lunch is so tasty! Its a real mexican meal, with items I have never tried but will be seeking again. Take your camera. It is so picturesque.

Nice tour with Gustavo. Stops for pastries, tequila tour & tasting, and visit at a coffee maker. The lunch in San Sebastián was very good. You have about an hour and a half in San Sebastián to tour and look around. The church is worth a visit. The drive to/from does include some windy roads. All in all It was a good interesting and fun trip.

Great tour! Adan is very knowledgeable and funny. He delivers a great historical description to this beautiful old town and let's you interact with his tour by asking you questions about what he has taught you! Highly recommend it!

Tour guide Mario was excellent. Food was very tasty and the town is full of surprises. Coffee plantation is a must if you enjoy coffee or are interested in the process and details.

The knowledge of the driver/tour guide was excellent!
