My husband and I went on a snorkeling tour with Said and it was fantastic. Said, Leslie and our captain "Chewy" were fantastic, the guides outnumbered the guests! We snorkeled with sea lions and even saw whales even though every one said they were pretty much gone. Thank god we were not on the big tour boats that passed us stuffed with people. We had lunch on an island and it was amazing fresh and tasty. The whole day was really great probably the most memorable day of our whole vacation.

I have lived in Mexico for 7 years now and have done and experienced a lot. Said is one of the nicest and most professional guides that I have come across. Our trip was a very basic snorkel tour to the islands with a great lunch on the beach under the shade of his portable canopy. He made fresh guacamole and yellow fin tuna salad to die for!
Beer, water and sodas all included. I highly recommend using Said for your personal guide for any adventure you do in Loreto! Gracias amigo!

Our licensed guide, Said, and his boat operator provided a safe and knowledgable experience on our fabulous trip to Coronado Island. We got so close to dolphins that they were swimming around and under the boat at times. The snorkeling, in two different locations, was great with a large and varied number of fish and other sea creatures that Said was very good at pointing out and identifying for us. We enjoyed a lovely lunch prepared by Said on a beautiful beach and afterwards took a little walk on the wood path on the island. We had a wonderful day and great experience. We highly recommend a tour with Said while visiting Loreto; it will greatly enhance your visit!

We saw other travelers' positive reviews of their trips with Said and he more than lived up to advance billing. We went on a guided hike to Mezquite Canyon, which was an all day trip involving a trail hike to the canyon access, and then going into the canyon, where we spent the bulk of the day.

A guide is absolutely required -- we would not have found the trailhead or felt safe in the canyon on our own, and Said did a great job introducing us to canyoneering and pointing out flora and fauna. Due to a slip and some scrapes, we also had the opportunity to sample Said's first aid kit, which was admirably well-stocked.

It was our first time canyoneering and it was an absolutely magical experience. The canyon is a great mix of hiking on a dry river bed, wading, and swimming. Early May was a good time to visit for water / air temperature and water clarity - a few of the pools were starting to get algae blooms, and I imagine it won't be that appealing later in the summer. We used water sandals (Chacos), but dedicated water shoes or even running shoes that you don't mind getting soaked would be better for traction and not getting gravel stuck below your arches.

Trailside guacamole and the provided sandwiches were great, and we would jump to do this trip again or explore other areas around Loreto with Said!

Said Orozco was a terrific guide for our small group (6 people) on a hike in La Giganta - a very special place near Loreto. This was part hike along a ridge part swimming/hiking through a lovely slot canyon with a nice lunch on a ledge. Said is very knowledgeable of the plants, animals, and geography of the area and took good care of us. Plus lunch with fresh made guacamole and door to door transport. Definitely book with Said. Voy a regresar...
