    Who would not love to return to their pre-crisis lives? Enjoying the outdoors, strolling the charming cobblestone streets of San Miguel de Allende, while learning about our beautiful city’s interesting history from an expert who is not only knowledgeable, but also dedicated to ensuring your enjoyment.

    Pre-COVID, the Patronato Historical Walks were among the most popular in San Miguel. Eager, excited crowds queued up to make their donations to our enthusiastic Greeters every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning in the Jardin before 10:00. We welcomed all, no reservations required, donations taken onsite.

    Unfortunately that “open-door” policy is not possible in a time of pandemic. So we challenged ourselves to find a way to resume our Top Rated Walks, even on a limited basis. Our answer was to offer Private Tours. Your volunteer Guide will be Dali Amaro: he is a state Certified Guide, with over 10 years of guiding experience and is a native son of San Miguel. He will provide you with a wonderful Tour, in English, at your convenience and with all safety protocols and precautions in place.

    These Walks are an important part of Patronato’s annual revenue stream, and the need for funding does not just stop because there is a crisis. We continue to provide critical care to all special needs children throughout the pandemic. Be assured that our 25 plus Historical Walk Volunteers, who are reluctantly waiting out the crisis, have been busy studying their San Miguel history and meeting virtually to keep alive the spirit of passionate volunteerism. They will be ready as soon as we are given the “all clear”. Until then, they sincerely encourage you to take a Patronato Private Tour.

    For 50 years, Patronato Pro Niños, a Mexican non profit organization has been providing necessary medical, dental and psychological care to the children of families who cannot afford to provide it for them.   For more information on how to book your personal Tour, including your choice of day and time, safety protocols, arranging a safe meet up place and donation details please contact the Private Tour Coordinator

    And behalf of the children, we thank you.
