This was a fascinating and wholly enjoyable visit to the owners home. Suggested donations go to charity. Every bit of wall, floor and sometimes even ceiling was covered in colourful Mexican folk art, so much to see and so much colour. Our guide was so...More

This was a very interesting experience for my family as we stopped in Valladolid after visiting Chichen Itza. David was a great guide - very friendly, entertaining, and informative. Highly recommended.

No wonder this attraction is rated No 1 in Valladolid. We arrived just before 10.00am to begin the tour and were warmly welcomed by David, the tour guide. We were then guided around the private home of John and Dorianne Venator, who have opened both...More
