We loved the tour! Highly recommend; enjoyed the boat tour to the Arch in Cabo, the glass blowing factory demonstration, seeing San Jose although would have been nice to have a little more time there to browse shops and skip the jewelry store stop for pearl demo as felt like a sales pitch. Lastly the lunch stop was great as food was authentic and off the tourist area which we would not have ventured on our own:) Our guide was fantastic, informative and fun.

This was hands down the most magical experience I’ve ever had. Celebrating my 40th just got better. The staff was super attentive and accommodating. Plus, no crowds of passengers. We were only a group of five. The music and food was amazing. I highly recommend this tour. Cabo ocean adventures, the best sailing tour in Cabo! Luxury at its finest.

Our cooking class was so much fun! We loved shopping for ingredients and cooking a delicious Mexican lunch. Issi exceeded our expectations 100% and we definitely hope to come back and cook with him again.
