We're not going to break Mariana's run of excellent reviews--she was wonderful! Very warm person, extremely knowledgeable about her native city, and with family on both sides of the border, perfect English. We toured on New Year's day, so the city was a little sleepy, but Mariana rolled with it and showed us a great time. Would definitely recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your new year day and your kind words. I hope you visit again. Best regards, Marianita

We had been on a cruise and didn't want to take the usual shore excursions. We contacted Marianna about a 4 hour city tour for a party of 8. Many people on the cruise wouldn't go into Ensenada. They really missed out on seeing this great community! Marianna met us at the dock and off we went! Fantastic! We even stopped for some fish tacos! We all thought Marianna and driver did an excellent job highlighting their city! Don't miss out on a great adventure!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aawww Thank you so much!! I'm so happy you enjoyed the day. I hope to see you soon. Warmest regards, Mariana

Portland, Oregon adult family had a great little trip - Carnival Cruise, Queen Mary, Ensenada & Redondo Beach. From start to finish, Mariana made our tour special customizing it to fit everything from our dream list. At the end of family trips we always share our favorite parts. It was unanimous that we loved our day with Mariana and Alex above all else! Seeing them with locals and her love for Ensenada's rich history was contageous. Gracias bella Mariana! You've given us priceless memories.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We had such a wonderful time with you and your family. Oregon will need to be a visit we will plan someday. Thank you so much for touring Ensenada with us.

Mariana is an excellent guide for Ensenada. She knows her city and it's history. Everywhere we went she shared stories about the buildings as we drove past or stopped to get a better look. She seemed to know everyone we meet as we went about the city. Her English is excellent and we had no communication problems. We highly recommend Mariana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I enjoyed you guys very much. You are my uncle's doppleganger (is that how it's spelled? Haha) Please, visit me someday. Hopefully you stay at Quintas Papagayo! Cheers.

Mariana was an amazing guide! Well-informed, friendly, and patient. She treated our daughter, who was celebrating her birthday, to a delicious, fresh cake, and Mariana showed us amazing parts of the city based on our interests (we avoided the touristy areas). We left knowing more about Ensenada's rich history thanks to Mariana. We look forward to having her as a guide again when we return in the near future! Thank you Mariana for your great service! Our daughter hasn't stopped talking about you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awww what a cutie!! She was so easy and fun to work with and I loved your family and the fact that you were interested in my community and culture. I´ll make sure to look for the prints you liked. Guadalupe Gaos has been a local favorite of mine for many years. Saludos

Extremely personable, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! Conqured a lot in our day and enjoyed just hanging out with Marianna and Alejandro... they even dropped half of our group off at the ship and came back for us 3 hours later to ensure we got back to our ship! Tour guide and friends!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed your party so much! I wish you the best and I hope you have an amazing wedding! Warmest regards from Ensenada.

We had a party of four two adults and two children we were interested in doing a lot of things but not a lot of one activity. Mariana had created a tour and plan for our interest and we all had a great time. She went over and beyond to make sure we had everything (beach toys, umbrella, chairs, ice chest & so on) for our day with her. She made the boys feel special with the attention she gave all of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so so much!! I loved being with you and your family. It was a great day. Hope to See you coming back someday. Abrazos xoxo

Mariana is a charming person and knows her stuff. That tour was our best day in Ensenada. We learned quite a bit about the city and what it's like to live there, which was our goal because we're considering a move to Baja. We tasted some fantastic tequila, learned a little about local wine and ate amazing seafood. The beach was beautiful, too. We plan to be back and we'll ask for her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Gina! It was my pleasure to introduce you to Ensenada, my beautiful home in Baja. I hope you made it well back home and hope to see you soon. xoxo

Mariana was all that you could ask out of a local guide. She took us on walking tour that covered Ensenada. We were very impressed to see that everyone knew her and obviously liked her. We even had a good lunch with her and were very happy with our meal. We learned a lot about life in Ensenada from the view of a local person who lived the life -- not a PR person! Very enjoyable and would like to go back some time. We wish Mariana all the best. She has a lot to offer.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, Eugene. It was my pleasure to show you around. I hope our paths cross again someday to show you other sides of my city. Warm regards. Saludos.

Mariana was excellent, we stopped wherever we wanted, we ate great Mexican Food and went swimming in ocean. We had time to shop and just took our time enjoying Ensenada. I would highly recommend Mariana she is very knowledgeable and so friendly our group just loved her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Tony. I had a great time and even swam with you and your friends. It was a beautiful day. Come back soon! xoxo

Marianna is a knowledgeable guide and a warm, wonderful person. I was so lucky to find her. She tailored my tour precisely to my needs. My Ensenada experience will be richer by far because of Marianna's tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :D My pleasure Juli!! Hope to see you again soon!

Mariana was EXCELLENT! She took us to all the places we requested and more! We wanted a sense of how the locals lived, not just the tourist sites. She took us into neighborhoods from the wealthy to the low income; the beautiful beaches that locals go to and provided some local history; a super vantage point where we could see miles and miles of Ensenada; and the top rated marine/ocean institute since my 15 year old daughter is considering a career in marine biology. Signed, pleased customer :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great day, the weather could not have been better in Ensenada for it! Thank you so much and I hope you come back soon. Saludos, xoxo.
