Everyone is very nice, but none of the sites held much charm for me. I will say that if you're interested in glass-blown objects, the glass blowing factory was a treat and wow, the goods were affordable. (though maybe that's a sad reminder of the socioeconomic conditions facing Mexico today...)
Reviewer: Eden Mante
The city tour and glass bottom tour were excellent especially for a first timer like myself. The Tequila making, glass blowing and we’re good. The glass bottom boat tour was excellent and good info from our tour guide.

These guys did a great job and it was very easy to locate them. When you get off the ship you are overwhelmed with all the activity and the boat trip was our favorite. They did an awesome job pointing out things and took their time. The city tour was fun and very safe. We will be back.
5-Star rating for the Glass Bottom Boat tour (Esperanza's Tours) guides, Juan and Chris. They were funny and energetic! The city tour guide, Augustin, was nice but mostly shopping around the small city. When he dropped us off at the first shopping stop, he picked up more people from the pier and he didn't reserve our seats in the van. The latecomers got the best seats in the van throughout the tour. That was disappointing.
Tour and driver were very good. Loved the boat ride and he really took us up close to see sea lions and passages. Fun tour. City tour wasn't that great. We just rode around. Not much to see and no great effort was taken. Boring. Boat tour was nice though.

The trip mas great, what we liked most was it was a small intimate group not the the big Tour thing you have with the ship tours.

The city of Cabo San Lucas was surprising to us. We had never been there and the contrast between the luxurious resorts and the condition of the residential areas was not expected. The tour had too much shopping but overall there was enough history and culture to make it a good tour. The tour guide did a good job.

This tour was great. The boat trip was fantastic showing fish on the reef and the famous Arch. The boat took us all around the Arch and slowed for us to take pictures. It was a 25 foot boat that only took 12 passengers so it was great. The city tour was also informative and took us to a small private glass blowing business so we were able to get a close up observation of the actual making of a product. Really a fantastic opportunity.
Reviewer: Allan Merima
Really enjoyed the tour! Lots of great sites!
Since this was a tender port and we had to wait a long time to get on the tender,, we were a little late joining the group. They had already left for the glass-bottom boat piece of the tour. After the city tour, the guide was so gracious as to independently drive us back to the pier so that we could have our own private excursion on the boat while the other members of the group stayed in town to shop. The glass-bottom boat ride was the highlight of the day.
The guides were fun and knowledgeable. Loved every minute of it!

As a travel agent who sells cruises, this was my first tour with SHORE EXCURSIONS GROUP. Although we had to be tendered into port, the directions provided on the voucher were easy to follow to the meeting place. Our tour had 7 people in a comfortable, air conditioned van. Since out group was small we got to know our fellow passengers, which was great for me since I was on my own. The van driver was our tour leader for the land portion and he did a very good and informative job . We saw some excellent sites. The second part of the tour was on a glass bottom boat, which was comfortable. Although we did not see any whales, we did see various types of fish and some sea lions close to our boat. We sailed through the arch that separates the sea from the Pacific Ocean. This water portion of the tour was amazing. With this tour we got to see both land and sea and made for an excellent excursion.

We really enjoyed this combination tour; we loved learning about the Cabo beaches, the arches and seeing the pelicans and sea lions up close. The city tour was fabulous and our tour host Moises was the best! We visited top sites of interest in a small, comfortable, A/C van. It was very personal due to the small numbers. Cabo has become a must return to vacation destination.
Reviewer: Carlos Bratcher
We enjoyed the city tour but was unable to take the glass bottom boat tour due to misinterpreting the time difference between local and ship time. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Reviewer: Jim Smithson
Enjoyed this tour.. This is the one we still talk about. Jim

I wish I had written down the names of the people who ferried us out to see the Cabo Arch in our glass bottom boat. The main guide was so informational and helpful with his knowledge of the area. He pointed out the most famous sites but also talked about the local culture and we all felt like we were a small bit like family inside that boat with him and the pilot. The pilot was soft spoken but enthusiastic when pointing out something of interest. All in all, a nice tour and well worth the time and $$!
Reviewer: Dianne Pardo
Glass bottom boat excursion was spectacular as well as informative. City tour was nice.
Reviewer: Zhaorong (Ren) Sonnier
The city itself is not that interesting, but we have a good tour guide.
Reviewer: Edward Hamilton
Excellent tour and beautiful scenery.
Reviewer: Duane Harmon
The best part of the excursion was the glass bottom boat ride to ""El Arco."" Lots of great scenery. The tour of the glass factory and of the town were both good. The souvenir shops in the downtown area were excellent.
Reviewer: Liz Shannon
My friend and I got separated when leaving the Cruise Ship, the group waited as long as possible then set off without her, for the glass bottomed boat part of the tour. We rendez Voused back at the tour office, included my friend and set off on the next leg of the tour.When the other members of the group returned to the Ship, my friend and I joined another group for the Glass Bottomed part of the Tour. I am very impressed! Lovely City!

Glass boat pilot Jose was great. He made the tour fun and we had a very fun time. The city tour is a pretty standard tour. The Tequila tasting was well done.
Guide who drove the boat loves the water so much that he pulled up 2 very heavy floating garbage bags from the water.
Tour guide very friendly, beautiful sites
Reviewer: Arizona Seasoned Cruisers
This was a great excursion! The guides were extremely fun and very humorous and really knew a lot of interesting statistics. We highly recommend this to anyone.
Tour guides were engaging, friendly, and well informed. Felt safe during boat and bus tours.
Reviewer: The Coop Troop
We had a good time. Enjoyed the Glass Factory.
With only a few hours in port to see Cabo, this was a quick and easy way to get a taste. A bit too much time is spent on the glass blowing and tequila tasting stops---some people may want guided shopping but that is not our thing.
Excellent tour. Loved watching the sea lions. Several jumped on the back ledge of fishing boats and rode into the harbor with the boat while the fisherman fed them! This was very unexpected. The rock formations And water was beautiful. Highly recommend this tour.
The city tour was interesting. Once we got on the boat portion of the tour it became more fun. Seals, tropical fish, interesting beaches and classic rock formations.
Glass Bottom boat was worth the trip, the city tour was just average glass blowing stop was just fair.. The growth in Cabo is horrible and feels just like any other Mexican tourist town.
Saw many beautiful and interesting places and things.
The glass bottom boat is quite small and the water is choppy, so if you're subject to motion sickness, go prepared.
Glass bottom boat the best part of the tour.
Reviewer: BB Bard
I would have preferred a significantly larger boat. Me getting on and off caused the boat to list more than I am comfortable with.
Enjoyed tour very much !!
Reviewer: GREAT !!
REALLY ENJOYED THIS TOUR - CITY TOUR AND GLASS BOTTOM BOAT
Got to see Cabo and the surrounding community, Tourist attractions, resort hotels, glass making, and tequila tasting.
Reviewer: Al The Waxman
Tour was great!! Driver/guide excellent !! Glass bottom boat and Skipper supper!! Glass blowing factory interesting!! Tequila exhibit and tasting was good!!
Fun on the glass bottom boat ride. Safety was the very first thing the boat crew emphasized. Good view of different variety of fishes.
Tour was great and a bargain. All the tourists who took this tour agreed that it would have been nice and preferable if respective travel rep would have greeted us as we exited the pier. (Other tour operators do this.) Even though instructions were provided, we did not know where we were going and felt uncomfortable. All participating tourists arrived at different times and all were happy to know that we had all arrived at the right place.
