The trip out to visit the site was well worth it. Informative guide and Interesting ethnography if somewhat less than its spectacular relatives in Mexico City. Great lunch at el rancho after the tour

Our anthropologist guide, Alberto Aveleyra, provided an excellent tour to the site. He provided many facts and history about Canada de la Virgen pyramid site and also facts about San Miguel and the countryside on the trip to the Site. The tour was enjoyable and very worth our time and money. He not only has great knowledge but it is apparent that he really enjoys his work. I highly recommend this tour.

Alberto was a fantastic guide, very passionate about his subject. The tour was very comprehensive, the pyramid site gorgeous. The walk and the steps up to the pyramid were a lot easier than I thought they would be. So fascinating.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of this fascinating site. Our guide, Alberto, is an expert on the archaeology of the area, and has an infectious passion for the details. He will lead you through many of the current theories about the people who built the amazing structures, their beliefs, and their understanding of complex celestial patterns. A day well spent exploring these ancient ruins of a fascinating people. The home cooked lunch at a nearby rancho was a wonderful experience of simple Mexican food at its best. Local and ranch-grown ingredients, fresh homemade queso Fresca cheese, and juicy sweet local mandarin oranges were highlights. You won't be disappointed!

This tour was a highlight of our trip. Our guide Alberto was so engaging and enthuastic about showing us everything. He made great efforts to include everyone. It was an afternoon very well spent, worth the fee, and the lunch at the ranch should not be missed. Thank you!

Our tour of Canada .la Virgen was spectacular. Arnoldo , our guide, was truly the best and most knowledgeable of any guide I've ever encountered in any country. He was also delightfully entertaining and truly loves his country. I learned more in 3 hours about San Miguel and its history than in the 4 months I've lived here. If you go, be sure and ask for Arnoldo. My guests from Texas said it was the high point of their trip. Jo Cartwright
