San Miguel de Allende is a wonderful city to visit! This tour was timed and paced perfectly. We left Mexico City early in a clean and comfortable car and we were dropped off in the town's main square after being shown the main few buildings. We were then given free time (about three hours) to explore on our own. If you're looking for a break from CDMX to brush the surface of a beautiful place, this is the trip to take!
