Articulate and thorough tour for folx who want to learn more about Michoacán’s Indigenous Legacy.
Jul 2019 • Solo
This review is long overdue for me. Don’t let the three review total fool you on this tour— Yei Tours is a legitamate, professionally operating tourist organization.

To further illustrate that point, I had a family friend from Mexico I was staying with call on my behalf to verify its legitimacy because I was skeptical at first. Rodrigo was very kind and agreed time to meet with us in person before I confirmed the tour. We met Rodrigo at his office to still verify that it was legit, haha, and then confirmed the tour. The office space was clean and professional. If you can’t tell, my family and friends were being protective because I was traveling solo and they wanted to make sure I was safe. The reason why I am telling you all of this is because you don’t have to speculate and go through all the steps I did see if it’s real. Yei Tours is a legit, safe and reliable organization to take a tour from.

Rodrigo, my guide and founder of the company, studied extensively to become a guide and is licensed by the state to do so. Truly, I was being educated on this tour, not just guided. I wish I had recorded everything that was said because the history was so rich.

I came to Michoacan in July to reconnect with my roots and family history. I wanted to learn more about the Purhepecha and how their legacy still lives today. I was traveing alone and felt a little anxious to go on a 9-hr tour by myself but when Rodrigo came and we got started, that anxiety disappeared. He was very professional and stayed true to the itinerary that is posted on this site.

I felt as though nothing was lacking. Since it was just the two of us, my many questions about language, colonialism and traditions were addressed in great depth. If Rodrigo didn’t know the answer to my inquiries, he also was clear to say that he didn’t know. He was very honest, even though that not knowing didn’t happen much, haha.

Rodrigo was on time, I paid the first half of the tour the day before and the last portion at the end of the tour and was very satisfied. I didn’t even feel as tired as I thought I would be after 9 hours of walking, chatting and learning.

The scenery and the stories are incredible. I would highly reccomend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about the people to whom this land belongs, their history and their living legacy. Any trip to Morelia or Michoacan would be incomplete without this tour.

Thank you Rodrigo!

Wear Sunblock and take snacks!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Great tour, was very educational and pretty interesting throughout the day. Our guide Rogelio was very talkative and kept the trip interesting. You can tell he is very passionate about the history of not just Michoacan, but all of Mexico and even Central and South America. As i said in the title, wear sunblock, maybe shades and a cap for the sun. And also take a snack because the lunch can be a bit later than you’d expect.
