We were looking forward to our tour of San Sebastion and were not disappointed. The first stop on the tour was for a downed tree. The road was a narrow two lane road up the mountain and a tree was laying across the road. We had to get off the bus while the driver maneuvered around the tree. No problems were encountered but it was an unusual diversion. Next stop was an old hacienda on the outskirts of San Sebastion. The hacienda was the location of an old silver mine and smelter. It turns out that John Huston used this as his residence while filming Treasure of the Sierra Madre. The property is still in use as a hotel.
In San Sebastian, we toured the church and the town. Also on the tour is an elderly gentleman making and selling hand rolled cigars. The town is worth visiting and in is good condition. On the return trip we visited a tequilla factory.
Because of a local bad road, if you have a motion sickness, you should not go.
But it if are OK for motion sickness, you can learn many things about Mexico and history. Cool air and Nice guide and local people.
Excellent trup..guide knew all that was needed for the trip...The meal could have been better...only aveerage...have done this trip before and enjoyed it both times
I expected much more from this tour, maybe seeing an old town in Mexico can be more interesting for non-Europeans, also, not much left of the town's history. The guide and the visitors were very nice so anyway I had a better time than if I had stayed at the hotel on the beach on this rainy day.
