Walking tour with a private guide


Guanajuato is one of the most amazing cities in Mexico. In the 16th century, people started living there because the mines produced much silver and gold.

This is a 4 hour tour to know the main spots in the historic center.

We'll start at Juarez Theater and then continue walking to see the Basilica of Guanajuato, Diego Rivera Museum (optional), alley of the Kiss, Alhondiga de Granaditas and some beautiful plazas (squares).

If time allows, we can use public transport to go to the Mummy Museum or an old silver mine in La Valenciana and see the church of San Cayetano.

This tour is from 1 to 3 people. If you're group is larger than that, please send me a message indicating how many people is coming, and I'll arrange private transportation if we're going to the silver mine or the Mummy museum. This has an extra cost.

A Recent Review of this tour

We really enjoyed our tour of Guanajuato with Aarón. We felt like he was able to give us a lot of history and stories about the places that we visited that we otherwise would not have known. In Guanajuato it was not especially easy to find a tour guide that speaks English, so that was also a big plus for us.
