Fernando was amazing! He was able to give us all sorts of interesting facts about the local area, was super flexible, and even helped my mother in law get some medical help when she was in a lot of pain during our tour. If we went back, we would love to have the opportunity to book with him again!
Veronica SchnizlerUnited States
Fernando and Esteban created a perfect day for our group. Fernando customized our tour to include the wineries we were interested in and made reservations for us at one of the restaurants in the valley. So knowledgeable and personable! We became friends from the very start of the tour. Thank you, Fernando for an awesome day! Best regards, Veronica
Paola GuzmanUnited States
The tour was great. He took us to 3 wineries and then even dropped us off in Puerto Nuevo at our request, when were done. Very friendly, bilingual and knowledgeable about the area. Very safe driver and the bus was spacious clean and seemed like a newer model. I would definitely recommend using Fernando's services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Paola for your raiting...I'm very happy you used our tour guide services always tourbylocal and I try to accommodate our clients to their wants an needs.

Sean DavisUnited States
Fernando and the tour were both amazing! Fernando took us to a couple wineries and even a warehouse market that had the most amazing cheese/bread/sauces. Not even a winery but unexpectedly one of my favorite places! There were 8 of us in the group and we all concur that this was the BEST possible way to do the Valle. Thanks Fernando!
Marian NovakUnited States
Fernando was an amazing guide! From the first moment of meeting, I knew we were in good hands. The car was impeccable and his wonderful demeanor and knowledge of Mexico kept us engaged throughout the tour. We loved the wineries and the finishing the day at Puerto Nuevo could not have been better!! I would highly recommend Fernando! We can't wait to go back again!! He's the best!!
Carole H.United States
Fernando was great! It was about a 7 minute walk off of the ship to meet him. He was exactly where he said he would be even though we were a few minutes late. He was friendly and kind and we all felt very safe with him.

Michael McGawleyUnited States
Fernando was very knowledgeable, professional and very courteous. We took my Father and Mother in Law for a day trip tour of Mexico, departing from Tijuana. My MIL has difficulty walking. Fernando accomodated her throughout the tour and even assisted us in obtaining a wheel chair, which he then pushed! Absolutely amazing!! I would give Fernando 10 stars if I could! If you are in the San Diego area, don't miss this tour. It is beautiful and Fernando is the best tour guide!

The tour was great and Fernando was excellent. I had a mix up where to meet, he walked me thru & was waiting for us. He customized a tour for myself & 3 children. We went to Rosarita rode the ATV's and Horses on the beach, my kids loved it. We then went to have Lobster Burritos a must try if you're visiting. The view was beautiful and the restaurant we went to had excellent service. We finished with some shopping. Fernando's English is good and very knowledgeable about the history of the areas, great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dine for your kind words. Im glad you guys had a wonderful day in Baja Hope to see you guys soon !

Fernando was the most AMAZING tour guide!

Brittany ParkerUnited States
Fernando was awesome!!! We did the wine tour with him and had a blast. He was attentive, friendly, and felt like he was part of the group. Everyone enjoyed his company and we can't wait to do another tour with him on our next visit to Ensenada. He was flexible with our schedule and even offered to pick us up at our house which made things a lot easier for us.
Vincent MarizzaldiUnited States
Fernando provided an outstanding informative tour of the Guadalupe Valley wine region. He selected some very interesting boutique wineries as well as the large L.A. Cetto. All of the wineries had very good wines. We were especially impressed with Encuentro Guadalupe. This hotel/winery/restaurant is built into the side of a mountain and has a modern industrial look. Fernando knows the wine maker and he poured our tastings and explained each wine. He also gave us a barrel tasting of a soon to be bottled cab
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vincent, It was a pleasure to be part of this private wine country tour....I ll be very happy to see you guys again in the near future !!! Best Regards Fernando

Addison JorgensenUnited States
I had planned a group of 6 to go on a cruise that stopped in Ensenada for the day. Our plan was to find a private tour to take us to the wineries of our choosing in Guadalupe Valley. After hours of research it seemed the only companies that offered these tours had already chose which wineries to go to, and were extremely pricey. I stumbled across this site and contacted Fernando. I couldnt have been more satisfied with our trip. He was professional, friendly, and entertaining. Highly recommend Fernando!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias por su recomendación....Thank you for you recommendation ir was a pleasure and a great day for me too
Kathy HuntUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kathy and family.Thank you very much for your kind words. It was a great plaseure to spend the day with you and get to know you the way I did. You are bless family
Kate K.United States
My friend and I had a great day touring Baja's wine country with Fernando. He took us to some places we would never have found on our own. Lunch, for instance, was at a terrific little place hidden away down some dirt roads and through a gully, yet it was a 5-star lunch with impeccable service. Fernando was very knowledgeable and I would certainly use him again when I am back that way.
