“Great way to begin your visit to San Miguel”

Historic Walking Tour of San Miguel
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 March 2018

Took this tour on our first day in San Miguel and would highly recommend it for first time visitors. Our guide, Saul, was amazing (and obviously an educator ). Very knowledgeable, interesting and certainly loves this job. All proceeds from this tour go to provide medical and dental services to the neediest of children in the community which is a great reason to take this tour in and of itself.
This tour is filled was so much history and interesting facts about San Miguel—just wish I could remember half of them. As a side note—wear your most comfortable shoes. Saul told us San Miguel is known as “the city of fallen ladies”

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.
