“Interesting tour and good touring company”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We took the Photo City Magic Town with Land's End Tours in February. This tour took us to the nearby town of Todos Santos, supposedly home to the Hotel California, made famous by the Eagles song. We walked around the town, guided by our tour guide Dennis; visited some very cool boutique hotels, including one that used to be an old jail; went to some unique art galleries and shops; visited a Catholic mission church and saw other areas in Todos Santos. There was plenty of opportunities to take photos, shop or whatever else you wanted to do. Our tour guide, Dennis, spoke good English and gave us a good history of the town and the places we visited. The reason this is called a photo tour is because Dennis takes photos of the guests during the tour. He captures the memories the for. When we finished the tour Dennis asked for our email addresses and said he would email us the photos. Nearly two weeks later I haven't received anything, so I think he must have forgotten… I'm not sure… Before leaving Todos Santos, he stopped for about an hour at the Hotel California and had something to ear. I was starving and the tacos and margaritas we ordered were delicious! This tour picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off when it was finished.

“Nice day on the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The glass bottom boat is interesting ... but you can't really see much through it! The ocean though is amazing as always with its wildlife or not ... like the pelicans which are begging food in the boats area or the seals swimming behind the boats. Our guide took us even further from land to see the humpback whales ... that was a bonus, not included in the package!!! But we were really close to the whales ...:)

Dear Flanto:

Due to the weather conditions (it has been a little bit more cloudy and colder lately due to a nearby cold front), the visibility of the ocean water could be less than normal the case is. On a normal sunny day and with clear ocean water of the Sea of Cortez you can normally see through the glass bottom the big variety of tropical fish, like the yellowtail surgeonfish, the king angelfish, and the parrotfish, besides the underwater rock formations. We hope that despite the lack of visibility in the water, you loved the boat tour and that you have enjoyed the wild life like the pelicans, sea lions and the (bonus ;-)) humpback whales.

Thank you for your response and preference and we hope to welcome you again in Los Cabos.

Have a nice day,

“great tour and Denis our guide very good and cute!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This tour is worth it but at price of 37 USD as full price is too expensive . Denis our guide from NL is very good and plesent He will take you thru the few but pretty streets of Todos Santos, don't forget to have a beer at hotel california.

Todos Santos is an expensive litte town made for GRINGOS so that is the bad part of it as we are in mexico aren't we?

Thanks!

Dear rollenterox,

First of all, thank you for your review “great tour and Denis our guide very good and cute!” , qualified as “Very good” on TripAdvisor. With respect to your review we would like to inform you, and like that the whole TripAdvisor´s Community, the following:

The full Price of the Photo City Tour Magic Town (Todos Santos) is 69.00 USD p.p., and not 37.00 USD p.p.. This was probably the special (time share) price you have paid at your resort The Grand Mayan. Our price of 69.00 USD is exactly the same one as all the other tour operators in Los Cabos charge for a tour to Todos Santos. Los Cabos is, due to its location on the most southern tip of the Peninsula of Baja California and the fact that it is the most exclusive tourism destination of our country, a little bit more expensive than other places in Mexico.

For example, the rate for a taxi (one way trip only) from your resort The Grand Mayan in San José del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas is 35.00 USD. Paying the amount of 37.00 USD p.p. in your case, so only 2.00 USD p.p. more, includes a complete guided Photo Tour with free time to Todos Santos, a round trip in an A/C luxury van, insurance, certified tour guide, photographer, and bottled water in your individual cooling bag.

Our tour guide Dennis took you through the main streets of the small and quaint town of Todos Santos (the population is approximately 5,000 people), with its beautiful views of the Desert Oasis and its historical center with buildings from the 19th Century.

Todos Santos has been declared by the Federal Mexican government as a Pueblo Mágico (Magic Town); an initiative led by Mexico´s Ministry of Tourism (SECTUR), in conjunction with other federal and state agencies, to promote a series of towns around Mexico that offer visitors a “magical” experience, e.g. of their natural beauty, cultural riches, or historical relevance.

Todos Santos, therefore, can be seen as a little magical town made by Mexicans for people all around the world who are interested in nature, culture and/or history. So not only for people from the United States of America (or as you stated in your review "for GRINGOS").

Furthermore, Todos Santos was in the top ten of Emerging Destinations the TripAdvisor Taveler´s Choice Awards 2010, stating that the TripAdvisor Community it sees as a tourism destination with a lot of potential.

Finally, other clients from the United States who took this tour in the last month think that Todos Santos is very authentic; please read the review “Todos Santos Photo Tour” of Senior Reviewer MNatalieN of January 9, 2013 and the review “Wonderful tours with a great guide” of Contributor mlaskowski83 of December 22, 2012.

Of course we truly appreciate your comments rollenterox and respect your point of view without any doubt. However, we do would like to point out to the rest of the TripAdvisor Community two things:

* Firstly, that the price (both the one you have paid as our full price) is totally at price in comparison with other tour operators and relatively inexpensive in comparison with taking a taxi; and
* Secondly, that the town of Todos Santos is considered to be an emerging, and authentic Mexican town both by the Mexican government as the majority of the TripAdvisor Community visited by a lot of people all over the world interested in nature, culture, and history of Mexico.

Best regards,

“fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We just happened on the tour through Apple Vacations at the Barcelo. It was one of the highlights of the vacation in Cabo. The tour of Todos Santos was fantastic.
I would recommend this tour and tour company without a doubt. The tour director was excellent in his knowledge of the area, plants, the town and shops. We even saw a number of whales off the coast.
I would love to spend a few days in Todos Santos nice town.
