  • Day of the Dead Tomb Tours

    Saturdays in October
    10 AM

    Join the longest-running and best rated Day of the Dead tours led by the lad that, literally, wrote the best-selling book on Day of the Dead in San Miguel.

    Explore San Miguel de Allende’s oldest and still active cemetery to enjoy:

    ·  Why SMA is the epicenter for both the cult of the cross and witchcraft

    ·  How we bring back the deceased for yet one more fiesta

    ·  What happens if your future tomb taxes are unpaid

    ·  The art and folklore of the cemetery

    ·  How the Mexican view of death affects your daily life

    ·  What makes our cemetery unique

    The tour is led by Joseph Toone, author of the best-selling Day of the Dead book in the series San Miguel de Allende’s Secrets and our top ranked tour guide by TripAdvisor.  Last year Toone starred in the documentary explaining Day of the Dead aired throughout China.  The irony of someone from the US explaining Day of the Dead, in English, and in Mexico, to a Chinese audience was not lost on him.


    Also last year the Day of the Dead Tours with Toone were the most popular historical walking tours of the entire year.  To ensure smaller groups this year more times are being offered throughout the month of October.


    The walking is flat with plenty of places to sit, perhaps on a crypt.  The tour normally lasts about 1.5 hours costing 500 pesos or 25 USD (whichever is easier for you).  Tour before November first to know what to expect and enjoy all the season has to offer.


    All tours require reservations at with other days and times available.  For more information on various tours in San Miguel de Allende visit   Also on FaceBook and Instagram.
