Glad I did it
Kevin_H, Mar 2022
Great history by Omar, delicious bites that I assumed wouldn’t add up to a full meal, but they did! I hadn’t been exposed to any of the places previously.
A must do in San Miguel de Allende.
Donald_T, Mar 2022
Obviously the food and locations, were wonderful, but what made it outstanding was our guide Omar. His knowledge, sense of humor, and demeanor is exactly what is needed as a guide. Nice pace between venues. Highly recommend.
Great tour.

Great way to tour and taste San Miguel de Allende

My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much. There were 3 couples total. Our tour guide was Oscar and he was great! He was full of knowledge and had some humor. This tour was to be 2-3 hours but we were having so much fun we lingered in places and ended up being more like 4 hours. The food was so good and very plentiful! We highly recommend this tour and ask for Oscar!
Excellent intro to San Miguel!

The guide was very knowledgeable about the foods & history of San Miguel and he's fun!! The restaurant selections were fabulous!
Wealth of knowledge
Catherine_E, Feb 2022
Vail was a wealth of knowledge regarding the history of SMA. It was great that she is an American educator who has lived there many years. I will note to folks that this was mainly at restaurants and not for street food, per se.
A tasty orientation to San Miguel de Allende

Super food and super tour guide. Guiliana, had great info on the food and city, but balanced educating the group with having fun and letting the conversation flow. Nice variety of tasty food and drinks in some really fun spots. Still thinking about the delicious margarita at the end of the tour.
