This tour was the highlight of our trip to San Miguel de Allende. our guides (Nicolas, Layo and one other young man whose name I can't recall) were very professional and took very good care of us. They provided thorough training at the beginning and assisted us throughout the tour. The horseback ride through the cobblestone streets with the city lights all around was unforgettable. I highly recommend this tour to anyone regardless of whether you have ridden before or not. And the authentic cantinas were well chosen and provided a wide variety of atmospheres. We had no favorites as all were unique experiences. I will do this tour agasin when in San Miguel de Allende again.

Well planned and included many beautiful churches and historic sights. Our group ask many questions and all were answered with accuracy. This is a lovely way to see this wonderful city.
