Pueblo Magico

The old pueblo of San Sebastian has a very special charm. Yes, it's the beauty of the Sierra Madre mountains surrounding the village, it's the hospitality and friendliness of the people. It's the simplicity of old times.
You will discover the charm of San Sebastian as you walk the quaint cobblestone and observe the old adobe houses roofed with terracota tiles, and you smell the aroma of fresh roasted coffee mixed with the cool breeze from the pine forest. When you combine all these experiences you understand the magic of San Sebastian.
I can customize your tour to meet your needs and interests.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our family of 7 had an incredible time touring San Sebastian and the gorgeous vistas and villages along the mountain route! Cervando's passion for his country, the land and the people was the best part of the tour. We learned about the area's history, the flora and fauna of the mountains and met many of his local friends along the way. We stopped at a small-batch Tequila producer, a local restaurant for delicious hand-made tortillas and seasonal food. Thank you Cervando for an unforgettable experience!
