The above itinerary serves to provide an outline of what to expect from this wonderful experience.  However, there is so much more that comes along with it! We've been coming to San Miguel De Allende for over 20 years, and have many contacts that enable us to provide a true 'Insider Pass' experience. We'll visit decorated cemeteries, show you the best ofrendas (decorated altars) and invite you to come along to our favorite taco stands...

 

So, while this is a group tour, we build in tons of free time - there's no obligation to do any of the above.  We are at your service for restaurant/shop/art gallery recommendations and can get you the best deals on day excursions.

 

 

This is an authentic Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) experience and we'd love to have you come along! Best, Sharon & Tom 

 

I traveled with Sharon and Tom's Eat the Peach tour of San Miguel de Allende, and it was better than we could have ever imagined. Their deep knowledge and personal connections in San Miguel gave us a feeling of local immersion I can't imagine that you get with any other "tour group." In fact, the people who were attracted, like we were, to traveling with Sharon and Tom created an instant camaraderie, so even when we didn't have "group" activities planned, we often chose to spend our time exploring together.     Lesley, NJ
