Tour description

Mummies, tunnels, legends, and history come together in the unique world heritage city that is Guanajuato. Join me to discover all that this city has to offer!

Guanajuato might be small, but its unique orography makes it easy to get lost. In this tour, I will help you know your way around and make sure you don't miss any of the sights.

Some of the things we cover:

  • Teatro Juarez and Jardin Union
  • Subterranea tunnels
  • Plaza de la Paz
  • Universidad de Guanajuato
  • Callejon del Beso (kiss alley)
  • Legends of Guanajuato
  • Hidalgo Market
  • Alhondiga de Granaditas
  • Why are there mummies in Guanajuato?

    The tour meets right below Don Quijote & Sancho's statues, in Plaza Allende. This is the square where Teatro Cervantes is. Spot me with my short hair with pink highlights.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Monica was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. She shared so much about the history, the legends, culture and food of Guanjuato. She took us to the tunnels and less known alleyways. I was so grateful to hear for all the recommendations and advice on what to do and see in Guanjuato as well as how to get around with the local buses. Once you know the story of Guanjuato it's an even more magical place. This tour is a must for all visitors!

Monica was great: knowledgeable and fun. We learnt a lot. She also sent a list after the tour and gave a lot of great information. I was texting her many times and she always answer my text and provided great tips. Thank you Monica! It took me some time to write a review, but I really thankful for your help😊
