Born in Mexico City, Alfredo lived there troughout his education, enrolling in a school for tour guides established by the National Tour Guide Union & the Federal Government. During this time Alfredo also had the opportunity to learn English with American teachers at the Mexican American Cultural Institute (IMNRC). As a young adult, his family later moved to Michoacán where he found work with various hotels and travel agents. With a desire to return back to tour guiding, he enrolled in the Tour Guides training course hosted by the state government of Michoacán and the National Institute of Anthropology & History (INAH) where he was able to specialize in local history and culture of Morelia and Michoacan.
By 1995, Alfredo proudly became a licensed guide by the Ministry of Tourism. His proudest achievements include guiding film staffs from BBC London, Discovery Channel, Mexico Desconocido, National Geographic Magazine, People & Arts, TV Azteca, Televisa, and Travel TVCanada. Alfredo has also guided journalists and travel writers from Frommer’s, LA Times, and NY Daily News.
He is now working freelance to welcome travelers interested in art, culture, nature & history of Mexico, providing day trips and private tours in Guanajuato, Morelia, Querétaro & San Miguel Allende; main UNESCO destinations in central Mexico close to the famous “Magic Towns” of the area.
You must absolutely hire Alfredo for all of your tours – he was the very BEST!
