Lots of whales!
January 09, 2024
Highly recommend this whale watching cruise for a more close up intimate experience. Small boat with only 2 crew members and 4 guests, including us. The boat guide was very knowledgeable about where to watch the whales, and led us towards a mother whale and her calf. The boat was stopped to allow the whales to swim around us, right up close to the boat which made for great photos. Another whale in the distance breached and we all grabbed our cameras for a picture perfect photo. Note to bring extra cash to pay the man at the entrance to the dock, and also tip your boat crew, they were excellent!

What a way to see Mazaatlan and villages!!!
January 08, 2024
Our driver Eduardo was amazing. This really does make ALL the difference. We were in a small van seating a total of 12 [including kids] and we had a magnificent tour through the port city and on to the countryside where we walked through particularly clean villages and saw delicious treats being made in a small neighborhood bakery [where we samples many]. Then on to other villages and a brick making facility, a tile artisan, a wonderful lunch and a visit to another town where we toured a church and then ate banana cream pie supplied by our driver in the town square. Just a lovely long afternoon.

We had a blast!

My Wife & I went on this excursion as it is a popular destination for clients that stop in Ensenada. What better way to refer someone than to experience it ourselves? Our guide, Edgar, met us right outside of the port security gate and was holding a large sign that was easy to spot. The tour is in very small groups, which we personally prefer, so if you prefer large groups, this one probably isn't for you. Ours had 6 people in it, 2 of which didn't show up so it was just us and another couple and we made the trek to the wine valley in a Sprinter van. Edgar was very personable and a lot of fun to hang out with for the day. We visited 2 wineries that were very different experiences and then before heading back to the ship, we asked him to take us to a taco stand for lunch that is most popular with locals and that too was amazing. We tipped both our guide and driver as we were dropped off and they were extremely appreciative. Great day for a great value if you as us.

Delightful Day in the Valley
December 29, 2023
We arrived at the tour starting point early. There was a Shore Excursion rep with a sign there . Isabel, our guide, was very friendly, professional, and informative. We received a thorough introduction to the city and the surrounding areas. Upon arriving at L.A. Cetto the vineyard host, Isaac, walked us through the winemaking process. After the tour we had a private “back room” tasting that included cheese, bread, olives, olive oil and nuts. Next up we were off to Dona Lupe. Isabel provided a top notch experience, letting us explore yet bringing samples to us proving insight regarding the various jams, jellies, chips and wines. The experience included a cultural display of dancing with fire by local artists. Return to the ship was uneventful. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the history of the region and its winemaking. Probably not a good tour for small children or those seeking thrills though!

Unique view of Ensenada!
December 26, 2023
Very friendly drivers! We went with tuk tuks, and two guides. We got to visit the highlights of Ensenada, and enjoy some fantastic food! Flying down the busy streets in the open air was really fun! I always felt very safe with our cautious drivers.

Really Wonderful Tour

I visited Mazatlan a few times, but never took a city tour. Wow! Great city and our guide was very knowledgeable and provided the kinds of insights that only a good tour guide could share. I recommend...

Best time ever!!!
December 19, 2023
I had an amazing time!! The tour guide was so helpful and kind. I was traveling by myself and a very nice married couple also joined the tour and added to the fun. She took us to some absolutely beautiful places and took everyone’s photos for them at the destinations. I felt so blessed to be able to take this tour and enjoy so much of Ensenada in just three hours. If you have a chance try the fish tacos. They were delicious!!

The hop on hop off is the best way to see a large part of the city in a short period of time. Drivers are friendly and knowledgeable. Great tour and fun trip.

Great Atmosphere in Cabo
December 18, 2023
Had a very pleasant boat tour of the Cabo San Lucas Harbor and the famed rock formations. We even experienceed some whale watching. The boat operator was very friendly and the best part was the individual attention we received because there were only five passengers on the boat. Ship tours would have had over thirty people.

My husband and I’s first time in Mexico. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. We had Mar as a tour guide and she was more than we could have asked for. She explained every spot and took us to the best places. She took the best picture for us and became our friend. We felt so comfortable with her and made friends with so many because of her knowledge and experience. It says 2 hrs but she had lunch with us and waited for us to buy shirts etc. We will be back to see her and give business to her and the locals she introduced us too (Lidia’s taco Grill, liquor store on main st) PLEASE give them your business! THEBEST
