We learned so much! My husband and I were in San Miguel for only a couple of days and we wanted to get as much out of our short trip as possible. The tours with Joseph were incredible! He was so informative and had such a lovely personality. We learned so much and really enjoyed our time exploring the city with him. I highly recommend any of his tours. We did the History and the cemetery tour with him and loved both of them!

Deep and engaging storytelling Did not disappoint! Joseph weaves the stories of San Miguel de Allende with the history of the Spanish Inquisition and conquering of indigenous peoples in an extraordinarily insightful way. By focusing on the artwork and architecture of three historically significant churches within a few blocks of each other, we gained enormous depth of understanding in very short order. I came away with tools to interpret the culture and artifacts of Mexico in a whole new sophisticated way. Also it was very fun and even raucous. Joseph is deeply connected to the local community. Highly recommend and hope to return.

Don’t pass up a tour with Joseph Toone! Joseph is both an excellent educator and the consummate entertainer. This was our third tour with him because we so enjoyed the previous ones. In 90 minutes he managed to provide amazing historical context along with a thoughtful analysis of current social, religious and economic forces in San Miguel de Allende. We now feel more appreciative of all the amazing sights, sounds and experiences in this fabulous city.

Please please please don't miss out on this tour! I'm not usually a tour person. And I'm not usually a leave-a-review person either. But it would be a sin (venial not moral) not to share how wonderful Joseph's tours are. You should probably take at LEAST two of his tours if you are in San Miguel del Allende for more than two days. In fact, one of his tours every other day would probably be about the right ratio.Once you take one of Jospeh's tours, you'll start looking at the city in a new light--you'll notice details that your fellow, less-enlightened visitors (the ones who haven't taken one of Joseph's tours) are passing by in blissful ignorance of the history and art and culture they just trudged past. Don't be blissfully ignorant! Sign up for one of Joseph's tour now!

Church and cemetery tours We went on the town tour (churches) and the cemetery tour with 12 and 11 year old boys. We all loved hearing Joseph's stories. He has a great sense of humor, is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Mexico and taught us all so much about what we were seeing.

One tour is good, two is better Our first tour took us to several ancient churches where Joseph enlighten us on the ways of the catholic saints. Later when walking around San Miguel we saw saints everywhere. Our second tour took us out into the country which was an experience in itself. Joseph is personable, thoughtful, and entertaining

Joseph is the best! My friend, Shirley, and did both a cultural tour and Dia de Muertos tour with Joseph. Both tours exceeded our expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable and he adds so much color with his stories about the history and myths of a beautiful people and a spectacular city. We will go back to SMA and we will tour with Joseph again. His tours are a must, plus he’s a really nice guy and his doggie is so sweet.
