This was an excellent tour. We where a very small group of 5 only. The tour provider did not canceled the tour as many other would do, but took a small van a performed the tour with only 5 of us. This was like an privat tour. The driver and guide was amazing. Did know all the special places to make nice photos and took us to an nice fish restaurant in an nice lagoon with excellent view. Would recommend any time.
First off, local tour provider 5 star cancelled this tour and offered another - a much more tourist / tchotchke focused excursion that included Tijuana, something I would not have picked. Instead of what I assume would be an actual coach, we rode an airport shuttle bus fine though. Tour guide was nice, established a relationship with passengers closer to him, and offered local commentary. He wasn't as impressive as I've seen some other people review, but fine. Tijuana is nothing you need to see, and you certainly do not need 2 hours there. Meal was ok, but really catered to the tourist trade, as did the setting. Best part was probably a beach stop - where you could ride an ATV, or explore the hotels, et al, if you wanted to. Some difficulty getting the refund tour 2 priced less than tour I originally selected. All in all it was a little disappointing, especially as I have used Viatour in the past and had better experiences.
This was a very enjoyable day. Juan the tour guide is very competent. The challenge was the small number of sign ups for 3 Baja trips. By combining the best of the 3 trips he prevented the cancellation of all 3 trips and ensured all 9 people had a great day. Highly recommend any trip led by Juan. I learnt many new and interesting facts about Mexico.
Our tour to Ensenada was the highlight of our vacation. This was mainly due to our guide Juan. Not only was he knowledgeable of the areas that we toured but he also answered our questions and showed us unique areas along the way. The transportation was clean and comfortable and the food we had was really good. I would absolutely go again as long as Juan is my guide.
First, 2 people bailed because they van did not have seat belts in the back. They said it was not required by law. Second, it was raining and they said it was raining too hard in Ensenada to go there, so we never got even half way. Third, the tour van broke down and the guide had to thumb down a taxi already with people to get us to Puerto Nuevo for lunch, then we went back to the U.S.
We had a wonderful trip all together, and I would highly recommended to anyone..
Our lunch setting was spectacular and top notch service.
But what really made this trip great was our tour guide, Juan was very thorough in
explaining history of places and stops throughout the trip.
Happy that we made this trip part of our San Diego Vacation.
