We met the director of the tours while walking thru town on Thursday and she suggested we take the tour on Friday morning. John Herron was our tour guide. He was a very sweet and knowledgeable historian from Ireland . He took us thru a few churches and gave us such a wonderful and descriptive tour of the town. The tour is 2.5 hours and costs 300 pesos. I am so happy we decided to take the tour, it was so interesting and we learned so much about the history of San Miguel:)

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this walk tour today. It was quite comprehensive and ran a little over two hours. Our guide Patrick was very well prepared and quite knowledgeable. In addition, his manner was pleasant and patient with our questions. Now I feel much better prepared to appreciate all the charm and history the city has to offer. Highly recommended.

Patrick was so accommodating & informative. I highly recommend this historical walking tour. Additionally, the proceeds go to a very good cause: Patronato Pro Ninos!

This was a wonderful tour. We arranged a private tour easily and our guide Jack was great. He knew local history very well and linked it to current events and the locations he took us to. Very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. The pace was perfect and engaging. Good information about local places to eat and visit later. Thanks Jack.

On our first full day, we wanted to see the important sites of SME and learn its history. We could not have made a better choice than Patrick and this tour. He is an engaging storyteller who has made history his life's work. When Patrick led us to important sites I could see the actors in his stories mining silver, planning revolutions or building the future of San Miguel. He led us to inspiring artwork and beautiful hidden courtyards, each with an important story. For the rest of our visit in San Miguel, Patrick's history stories formed a matrix to help us hold and understand the scenes in this magical city.
Thanks to the volunteers who donate their time and skills, for the children of San Miguel!
