Excellect tour. Our tour guide was Manuel and our driver was Ponchito and we couldn’t have asked for two better guys to share their country with us. Professionals the whole way. We were only 18 seniors on this trip and they catered to us 100% of the time. Our hotels were always clean, the meals well planned. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone considering going.

Having returned today from the Feb 26 to March 4 Baja Whale and Wine tour, it is very easy to write an excellent review as not only the whale experience but everything from the itinerary, accommodations, meals, extra excursions etc were beyond our expectations. From Olinsser, a most pleasant driver who we're sure feels cleanliness is next to client safety while driving to our guide Bacho, made for a great trip. Bacho is so proud of his country and culture that his enthusiasm exudes and you can tell he loves his job. His knowledge and interest in the flora and fauna and the small group size enhanced the trip. This was Truly A Closer Look and we highly recommend it!

We are coming home tomorrow from an 8 day trip down the Baja of California to see, touch and interact with gray whales and their babies in Guerrero Negro, Mexico. It was an awesome trip and experience. Bacho López and driver Olinsser could not have provided a better experience. This is truly one of those bucket list things to do. All the hotels and meals were good to excellent. The coach is comfortable and kept spotless by Olinsser. Everything was seamless and we truly enjoyed every minute.

We booked the Guadalajara to Mexico City Colonial tour during Day of the Dead which made it that much more FUN! They allow you to customize your trip if you want to stay later too. Lots of extras included, nice hotels, the guide and bus driver exceptional.

Oh my my.. what a wonderful tour. Who would have thought you could have a group of 18 folks from their 20’s to 80’s be put together for such a wonderful week. Our tour guide Ivan was top notch. Since he lived in Oaxaca, the personal stories, history and culture he shared with us; gave us a real appreciation of the customs in the area, and the Day of Dead celebration. The accommodations and food were great. The itinerary was amazing. Taking us from the old to the new; learning customs, and age-old traditions. I would highly recommend this tour for a week of adventure, learning and meeting wonderful new people from all over.
