What people are saying about Baja California Norte

Manuel was a great tour guide! He was very accommodating, making sure we had plenty of water on our journey and plenty of time at each space. When our lunch spot was closed he took us to a local tacos place that was MAGNIFICENT. We truly appreciated this gem that was off the road. Such a relaxing and lovely day!

The family and I had a great time on this well planned guided tour. Our tour guide Mario was so informative I would definitely recommend this fun experience.

Everything was excellent, Mr. Manuel's treatment was really very good. I hope to return soon and be treated again with him.
