What people are saying...
A really impressive work is Archie Dean's "The Insider's Guide to San Miguel." I carefully perused and used each page of The Insider's Guide on my own recent Christmas stay in San Miguel, and found it invaluable -- showing excellent judgement and a knowledge of institutions that no casual visitor could hope to pick up on their own.

I wouldn't have had half as much fun without your book!
This is a book packed with useful and concise information that should prove invaluable for both visitors and English-speaking residents of San Miguel de Allende. A handbook for survival!
---Bob Somerlott/Travel Writer
My wife and I literally consumed a copy of your guidebook. What a well done book! I don't think you left any cobblestone unturned.
After exploring your recommendations, I trust you completely. Well organized, user friendly!
Travel guides such as Fodor get you to the door, The Insider's Guide takes you through the door and beyond.
---Louise/Boothbay Harbor, ME
I like the book's format - it's easy to read.
Without your book I never would have discovered the real San Miguel. We use it every day! I've already recommended it to five or six people.
---Ivy and Bud/Houston, TX
Your book is like a Bible!
---Paula/Col. San Antonio
I don't know where my passport is, but I can always find Archie's Guidebook.
