from Ensenada Baja Wonder Coastal Tour
Our Ensenada Mexico Coastal Tour will lead you further south into Mexico through a scenic toll road where you will see how coastal cliffs and soft hillsides tumble one-to-one to blend into the blue ocean.

This tour will provide you with a more genuine Mexican experience! In that city, all is very different than the areas around the border. The variety of landscape and the unique architecture will delight your sights.
In the area, you will find emblematic sites as the Civic Plaza, with its sculptures of Mexican heroes and the huge Mexican flag and the famous boardwalk “Malecon” whose coastal access is the best place to admire the port activities. This tour is the perfect way to spend a relaxing day under the Mexican sun!

Located in the Bahía de Todos Santos — an inlet of the Pacific Ocean — Ensenada is an important commercial and fishing port as well as a cruise ship port of call.

The city is backed by small mountain ranges. Due to its location on the Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean latitude, the weather tends to be mild year-round. Although the winter rainy season is short and the area is prone to prolonged droughts, Ensenada sits in the heart of a wine country that is widely regarded as the best in Mexico and the Americas with the Napa Valley in California

"Temecula wine region tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 22, 2020 NEW
Had a very nice trip to Temecula wine region with 5 star tours company. Don't give it 5 star only because during the booking online they didn't mention the tips to bartenders and the driver were not included in the price of the tour. They only gave this info after I booked the tour, so the price is actually higher that advertised. Overall the tour was very good, on time, informative, excellent lunch in the restaurant at one of the wineries, even though there were just the 2 of us, the tour took place as scheduled, so it was basically a private tour. At the last winery the Calloway we were given a detailed tour of their facilities. Would definitely recommend taking this tour to anybody interested in exotic wines testing. The wines of Temecula are available only by mail or locally.

I took my wife and nine year old girl and we all had a great time. It is a lovely drive up and down the coast. We got to see some beaches, do some shopping and have a great meal.

"Great trip with a great driver and tour guide."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 29, 2020 NEW
It was a very enjoyable trip to Mexico and was very straightforward. It was super easy crossing the border and our tour guide was extremely helpful! She gave us a lot of great information and history about the area and the vineyards. We went to three vineyards: L.A. Cetto, Hacienda Guadalupe, El Cielo, and Baron Balche. It was nice to eat at a local spot and have a beautiful view of the valley. The only hiccup was at El Cielo and they gave our tour away to another group, despite arriving on time. I'd definitely recommend this trip as a local and for tourists, it ran smoothly and our driver was easy to talk to and accommodated despite losing the reservation.
