Miguel was our very educated & humorous tour guide. He can tell you everything you need to know about the history then and now about every town we pass, on the way and about San Sebastian. He has been there many times himself. He is fascinating to listen to. The felt very safe with the driver as well. The town of Sebastian is very old and Miguel brought us on a walking tour of the town, explaining everything. The town seems so European. It is so charming. The included lunch is so tasty! Its a real mexican meal, with items I have never tried but will be seeking again. Take your camera. It is so picturesque.
