Helene is the epitome of a tour guide. She tailors the experience to the interests and tastes of her clients. We were fortunate enough to have Helene all to ourselves - just my husband and me. What a pure delight. We left San Miguel Allende at 9 am sharp and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our very full day with... More

My family and I spent a wonderful week in San Miguel. The highlight of our time there was the day trip we took to Guanajuato with Helene. From the minute she picked us up we felt like we were on a trip with a good friend. Helene is warm, personable, and so knowledgeable about the area. Upon arrival, our first... More

My husband and I along with our parents planned a trip to San Miguel de Allende. We are so happy that we were able to contact Helene! She taught us so much about the charming town, showed us amazing shops located in tiny nooks, and recommended delicious restaurants and desserts (churros anybody?). What we enjoyed the most about our tour... More

We spent a magical day touring Guanajuato/Dolores Hidalgo/Atotonilco with Helene. She knows all the best places to go and gave us lots of history. We were able to tailor the itinerary based on our interests. Besides being a knowledgeable guide, Helene is great company and patiently answered our many questions. This was truly a memorable day we will treasure. Book... More

Helene is a well versed and knowledgeable resident of San Miguel de Allende. While our tour was scheduled for only two hours, we covered a lot of ground. We left with some great restaurant and shopping ideas and a much better understanding of the history city and how this history fit into the overall evolution of the region. We plan... More

If I had only one single recommendation for someone coming to San Miguel -especially for the first time, it would be to take the walking tour and to do it, literally the day or day after you arrive! Helene will take you all over San Miguel on an easy, yet very thorough tour of the city showing you history, restaurants,... More

Four of us spent our first day in San Miguel with Helene seeing the sights in Guanajuato and Dolores. Helene picked us up at our hotel promptly at 9:00 AM for the beautiful drive to Gto. Once we got to Gto., we started our tour in a park at the base of El Pipila statue. This park offers a beautiful... More

I have the opportunity to work with Helene for the past two years and she is outstanding! I am a photographer and I bring a group of students to San Miquel every year. Helene has been our tour guide for the past two years and her knowledge of the area is incredible. She is a lovely and thoughtful individual who... More

Helene picked up my friend and I from our rented villa in San Miguel and drove us to Guanajuato, about an hour away. We loved seeing a nearby city that was so very different from San Miguel. We learned so much from Helene and felt like we had met an old friend instead of a tour guide. Her insights into... More

I selected Helene as a guide for the first visit to San Miguel for myself and my two lady friends . In 2.5 hours this amazing woman provided exactly what we were looking for to familiarize us with the high points of culture & shopping in SMA. After asking how many churches we wanted to visit we set out on... More
