Melanie and i took a walking tour of SMA with Betty and it was fantastic. Betty was really easy to be with and very knowledgeable. She went at a pace that suited us,and we gained a sense of the town from her ,that we used throughout the rest of our trip. i cannot recommend her highly enough,and when we return to SMA, we will look her up and do another tour with her. kenny macpherson.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kenny, I enjoyed my day with you and Melanie equally so! I so enjoy travelers such as you!! Muchos Saludos de San Miguel Betty

Betty took the four of us to, around, and into many out of the way places that don't appear on most tourist maps/guides. it was especially useful that she was bilingually fluent to get us started on our month long adventure. Additionally, she has remained available for the occasional question for which we needed in-country insight. We will be touring with her again before we depart. Thank you Betty!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure, i enjoyed your company and hope your visit here is full of fun, color, music, good food and company. Saludos Betty

We had a wonderful tour with Betty! She was very knowledgeable about the region, and gave us a ton of information about San Miguel, and made the tour both interesting and relaxing. I am considering moving to San Miguel and all the specific detail she shared provided me with just what i needed. We were able to view different neighborhoods to get a real feel for the city. My family and I enjoyed every minute of our tours with Betty, and will absolutely seek her out when we return! Tanna, Tucker & Alyssa

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You so much Hanna If I can be of any help in the future, please don't hesitate to ask. I thoroughly enjoyed our tour also Saludos Betty

We wanted an insider overview of San Miguel on our first day, and that's exactly what Betty shared with us. She is engaging, knowledgeable and energetic. Her own story informs the tour; at the end of 3 hours we felt as if we had been guided by an old friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed my morning also, I appreciated you understanding that so many places were closed. I hope to see you again soon Betty

Betty customized our tour to our interests & activity level. She brought us places we would not have found on our own. We enjoyed her company & knowledge of the area. She even got us a box to ship home a beautiful star we bought.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I so enjoyed our tour and getting to know your family Thank you, happy happy New Year! Betty

Betty spent her childhood in San Miguel. She is the daughter of artist who printed in San Miguel giving her a firsthand knowledge of the art community. We had two wonderful days which we specifically planned with Betty. We bought wonderful art and got a great understanding of this historical town.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: These were two spectacular days for me, Ron, thank you so much for booking with me and TBL's Saludos

Betty was a fantastic tour guide in San Miguel! She has lived in the area long time and clearly knows and loves it well. We bumped into people who knew her and wanted to say hello around almost every corner. Betty showed us places we probably wouldn't have noticed like art spaces, tucked away parks, and hidden local shops. I was running low on pesos and she even bought me an ice cream! This tour was a fun away to explore the city and Betty would be fun to hang out with in any town. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really enjoyed our morning together also. Thank you for taking the tour and using TBL's. I have an addiction to that ice cream!!!! Saludos Betty

What a wonderful walking tour we had with BETTY. She knows the city so well. Betty took us to local markets and explained the different produce that we might not be familiar with and took us to the beautiful communities that are all around San Miguel. Betty knows so much about the history of the area and I felt that I had a good grasp of the area that my daughter, son and I visited. She also gave us great recommendations of vegan restaurants. Who would know that - Betty did ! She is a GREAT guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so pleased you all enjoyed yourselves. I enjoyed meeting you and sharing San Miguel. Thank you for booking with me and for choosing TBL's. Saludos Betty

Betty is a great resource because she has a lot of childhood memories here in San Miguel. We saw a lot of the city and she recommended a lot of places because she lives in central San Miguel. Very warm person and customized the tour for us. When we come back with the rest of our family we will do another tour with her

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thoroughly enjoyed my day with you and your daughter. I appreciate your choosing TBL's and especially me. I hope Grace didn't get too sun burned. I look forward to seeing you again Betty

The moment Betty met us at our rented home in Centro - I knew we were in good hands. She weaved us through beautiful buildings we would never have thought to peak in...... told us the stories, showed us the views..... made everything interesting for us. Her long standing ties to to the city wove in further stories and anecdotes, making the points of interest just plain more interesting! She's a gem - and I would highly recommend her for anyone that wants to get a delightful overview of SMA!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Leaf, Thank you for your lovely review, I very much enjoyed my time with you and Fiona and look forward to seeing you when you return in December. As I say, I've never met anyone who didn't come back! Safe travels Betty

By far the best day that we have had on our trip to SMDA! Betty was an incredible tour guide. So glad that we did this on our first day so that we could get acclimated with the city. Betty was on time, we toured at a pace that was comfortable for us and we saw everything that we wanted to. All in all a day for the books! Just can't say enough good things about Betty and our experience. Be sure and book this tour with her....you won't be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ah Shucks, you are so kind! I have to say, touring with you Shannon was great fun and I am very pleased you enjoyed yourselves. Running into you this morning outside my house in my PJ's was certainly embarrassing , something to add to the highlights. Hope to see you again Sincere Regards Betty

Thanks to Betty for a great intro tour to SMA. I did not have much time, Betty was nice enough to meet me at the bus station and see me off there as well. During the tour, which was like visiting with an old friend, she showed me the key sites and was very knowledgeable about the city, showed me the key site and took me to a great cafe for a quick coffee and snack.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan, I enjoyed our quick tour also and hope you return one day soon. I admire your sense of adventure! Happy Holidays Betty

What a wonderful guide! We felt like we were being guided by a long lost friend. Aside from being quite knowledgeable about the San Miguel area, sights, customs, history, restaurants, shopping, etc, Betty is extremely personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our Introduction to San Miguel. The time went too fast! Betty showed us sites that we never would have found on our own. We highly recommend Betty and we'll certainly continue our exploration with Betty next time in San Miguel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure and I look forward to seeing you again. I truly enjoyed getting to know you also. Saludos Betty

Betty was just wonderful! It was such a special day. She quickly became very familiar with the kind of experience my husband and I were seeking and she tailored what she showed us to our interests. For example, we took a cab to a nearby hacienda where they had stables because I am interested in dressage. We walked through beautiful parks & she knew about the local history and interesting tidbits of local culture. I felt that we were being shown the sites by a personal friend!

Betty did a great job tailoring out tour for us. She made small adjustments as our day progressed to best suit our specific desires to explore the "back streets" of San Miguel. We enjoyed running into her the next day at the farmers market that she directed us to visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catharine, it was a pleasure to meet and get to know your family. I especially enjoyed your mother, Beth. Happiest of New Year to all of you and hope to see you in the future again in San Miguel Thank You for your review Regards Betty
