San Miguel Allende Tour
San Miguel is a vibrant artists colony filled with historical monuments, galleries, and restaurants. Many of the locals run their shops and business from their homes. On this tour I can show you some of the public areas where women wash their clothes, walk through the park where local artists display their work. There are two open air markets not to mention the numerous vegetable and flower stands all over town. I am happy to customize a tour including any of the wonderful destinations San Miguel has to offer. Thermal hot springs, we have a beautiful glass factory. I know many artists who work from their homes, this is a great way to gain a personal relationship with the artists. Ask me about the textile weavers and ceramic tile artists. Regardless of what you do, San Miguel is a magical town that once you've been here, you wont want to leave.
I am happy to customize the tour to include what most interests you, starting at your hotel/house or one of the locations on the walking tour. I will give you a great overview of historic centro, including the Instituto Allende, Parque Juarez, El Chorro, the towns main Market, our cultural center Bellas Artes and of course La Parroquia. Our town is an artists paradise, let me know what you are most interested in and I'll do my best to make it happen.

Betty is an awesome guide! We truly enjoyed our morning. She shows off San Miguel De Allende from such a beautiful and loving perspective. She is very accommodating and she adjusted our tour to include locations of great interests for our 8yo. We truly enjoyed our morning with Betty. I will recommend Tours by Locals and Betty to friends.
