This was absolutely the MOST amazing time! Mariana was GREAT!!!!! We learned so much history, saw amazing places and truly felt welcomed into Mariana's home. Not only did she help us "see" her world, she helped us understand the culture, the whys and how's things came to be. She took care for our safety. All of our questions were answered. We had a blast! We will be doing this again for sure to learn more from Mariana. This is an ABSOLUTE must do!

Highly recommend Mariana for tours in the Ensenada region. Very personable and knowledgeable. My husband and I enjoyed our visits to the Bufadora and areas of the city. We came home with many restaurant and other recommendations for future trips.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind Words. I'm happy that you enjoyed Ensenada and that you now have future references to keep visiting My beautiful city. Cheers!!

Mariana and Alejandro were great and we couldn't really ask for more. Can't beat a tour around Ensenada with someone so familiar with the area, culture and history who is very articulate and possesses a great breadth and depth of knowledge. Mariana introduced us to a great seafood place for lunch (after we expressed our desire to have the same) and showed us the City at our own pace and offering areas to visit based on our interests and available time. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Michael, Thank you so much for your review. Your family was lovely to tour with. We hope to see you soon again. Best regards from Ensenada

Excellent tour for our large group of 16 and very helpful when we had a chance of plans during our tour. Glad to have been on a private tour and not one with 100's of other people.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to take care of you and your family. I'm happy you had a good time. Xoxo

We had such a great time. This was our first Tours by Locals experience and it couldn't have been better. Mariana was a great tour guide she greeted us with a beautiful sign that was hand painted by her friend, she was very friendly and informative. Our 9 yr old son had a great with her talking in Spanish quizzing him on his Spanish skills. She took us to taco place for lunch and the tacos were some of the best we have ever ate. We would definitely recommend is. Sure beats a crowded tour bus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awesome!! I´m so happy you and your party enjoyed this so much. Wiley has great spanish, big high five to this teacher! Thank you so much for your time by writing this. Hope to see you again .

We had an absolutely perfect day with Mariana in Ensenada, Mexico. Pick up/drop off from our cruise terminal was easy. La Bufadora was beautiful & we had so much fun shopping & snacking our way through the flea market. The best part though, was seeing how much Mariana was loved by all of the local vendors & other tour guides we passed by. I can't speak enough about how knowledgeable she was & how much we learned on this fun excursion. One day with her was not enough, so I guess we'll have to go back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for that wonderful day and your kind words. I love sharing my food, culture and introducing you to the local community. We have known each other forever. I hope to see you soon..or maybe I´ll have to go to Disneyland hahaha xoxo

She was there at the designated time & place with a sign so was easy to find. The tour went off with out a hitch it was really nice having a private tour so we could go at our own pace and make adjustments on the fly. She showed us part of the town we had never been to and helped guide us on the best places to go. The taco place she took us to was amazing! When I visit again I will use her for sure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review. Hope to see you again.

Mariana was absolutely adorable! We had a party of 12 (6 adults/6 children) and she handled everything well! We booked the tour for all day off of Carnival's Inspiration Cruise Ship. She and the driver Alexandro met us and made our day magical. We went to Las Canadas FUN! and La Bufadora. She helped us with lunch and shopping. Overall...Excellent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Holaaaa, Judy Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure! Saludos

Our family had the best time with Mariana and her driver Alex when we visited Ensenada on Valentine's Day 2015. Mariana personalized our tour and let us spend as much time as we liked at each stop. I cannot recommend Mariana highly enough. We would schedule another tour with her if we visit Ensenada again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Carol! Your family was as delight to have and take around Ensenada. I'm glad we were able to meet your expectations. Warm regards! xoxo
