We had a group of 10 people ages 2-65 and we all loved Alejandro. He went above and beyond as he drove us around. He provided a car seat upon request and was very helpful about something I think I miscommunicated. He was very knowledgeable and had great suggestions for food and places to visit. He was obviously well known and respected everywhere we went. I was nervous having our six kids out of country for the first time and he could not have made the experience better. Thank you, Alejandro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your vacation. I had a great time with you and your family. Hope that when you visit, You contact me again to be your guide.

We have booked with Alejandro twice during trips to Ensenada and have been more than happy both times. On this trip he managed our group of nine expertly. He is the perfect mix of attentiveness and blending into the background that even made my mother in law, who has both limited mobility and limited travel experience, comfortable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words. I'm very pleased to know that your party enjoyed themselves very much. Happy New year!!!

A huge kudos to Alejandro!! He communicated before the trip, was there on time with a lovely van and accommodated our every request. We started the morning zip lining, went for an authentic Mexican lunch, shopped at a store that sold authentic Mexican goods and then went wine tasting before he took us back to our ship. It was a busy, but wonderful day. He also shared all of his local knowledge about Ensenada. Our day would not have been as good or the same without him. We highly recommend Alejandro!!

Absolutely awesome tour with Alejandro! He responded immediately to our text to find the meeting spot just outside the port gate to see a nice, large, clean van waiting for us with bottled water in a cooler. He then customized the day to our every need/timing with stops at the blowhole (including plenty of time for shopping and street tacos), Starbucks (to buy an Ensenada mug), a sports store (to search for a soccer jersey), and Hussong's (to get 2-for-1 margaritas). Thanks so much for a perfect day!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had such a very wonderful time driving for you and accomplishing your requests. I love what I do and I'm very grateful for your appreciation of my service. I hopefully will see you in Ensenada again someday.

Alejandro was amazing. He shared lots of info on the culture and history of Ensenada. He was a very safe driver. The van was nice and clean. At La Bufadora, he pointed out good vendors to shop from and he pointed out the best (and free) restrooms to use. He walked with us down to the blow hole, and was nice enough to take pictures of our group. His taco shop recommendation was great, my wife is still talking about those fresh tortillas. Alejandro know's everyone in Ensenada, he should run for Mayor.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Chad!! I feel so humbled by your comment. I hope to see you in Ensenada again someday. Best regards!!

My bridesmaids and I booked Alejandro for my bachelorette cruise in August and it was the highlight of the trip. He was absolutely amazing and we were all so thankful to have found his tour. He totally customized it to our liking and made sure we did a little bit of everything throughout the day. He took us downtown to the bars and shopping, to a local favorite for lunch, to the beach, and even to a few tourist photo op destinations. We will definitely book again if we are ever in Ensenada!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. I also had a great time with you ladies!!! Thank you for your review and hope to see you again soon in Ensenada.

Great tour. He picked us up with a van large enough to easily accommodate the 5 of us. Alejandro had lots of great information to share about the area and the sights. His English is superb. He adjusted the tour on the go according to the needs of our group. I'd do it again easily.
Alejandro was vey friendly and gave us a very interesting tour. We had a great time in the tour. We made a stop at the beach and also at a great Winery Alejandro recommended. highly recommended!

Fatima PachecoUnited States
Perfect for a group tour. There were 11 of us seated comfortably in his van. He took us to the Bufadora, through a street of shops, and very good tacos for lunch! What we like most about his tour is how we was very willing to make stops for our own requests like finding some micheladas, a Starbucks, the beach. Alejandro was very accommodating.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed your time in Ensenada and That I was able to contribute to your party's comfort and fun! Saludos, Alejandro

Alejandro was great! He took great care of us ladies. There were about 10 of us and a toddler. He gave us great information about Ensenada on the drive to Lobster Village. My mother and father visit Lobster Village offen so we knew a restaurant to go to; however, Alejandro also had recommendations. He was a safe driver. Spoke English well and joked with us. Hands down we would recommend him and plan on giving him a call whenever we are back in the Ensenada area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And I enjoyed taking you fun gals out too. Thank you so much for your booking. Come again and best wishes ��

A huge thank you to Alejandro! I contacted "Tours by Locals," hoping to find a tour to accommodate my mother with mobility challenges; Alejandro exceeded my expectations. He was kind, attentive, and provided an experience of a lifetime for my mother. The Blow hole and costal drive was spectacular. Alejandro provided a narrative throughout the dive that was informative. Alejandro customized the tour to our requests for lunch/best ceviche ever & local surf shop and a surprise majestic View of Ensenada!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I´m so happy to have made your day in Ensenada an amazing experience. I enjoyed spending time with you two ladies and very pleased to know that you liked my narrative and stops. Thank you, hope to see you again.
