The Enchantment of Valle de Guadalupe!

The entire day was amazing! We toured 4 fabulous wineries, tasting 3 outstanding wines at each one including a delightful 4 course gourmet Mexican lunch. The beautifully manicured vineyards added to the ambiance. The vendors were gracious. the transportation was totally comfortable and modern. Mario, our guide, was excellent. He was cheerful, knowledgeable, articulate, organized, relaxed, yet paying attention to every detail! It was a memorable experience which should be on everyone's Bucket List!

A Superb Day Trip to Mexico's Wine Region

I went on a private wine tour to the Guadalupe Valley from San Diego for a bachelorette party. Mario, the tour guide and organizer, was wonderful! Everything was on time, comfortable, and professional. Each stop of the wine tour was perfectly timed and planned. We stopped for brunch, then did wine tastings at two different wineries, and finished with an amazing dinner at a final winery. The food and wine at every place we visited was delicious. Mario was great at giving us space during our meals and tasting, while still checking in and keeping us on time when it was necessary. He took great pictures of our group throughout the day, and followed up promptly after the tour. Mario was very communicative about the border crossing, which went very smoothly. The entire trip was fun, relaxed, and luxurious for our entire group, and we felt like we could really enjoy celebrating the bride-to-be on her special day. I would not hesitate to work with Mario on another trip to Mexico from the US, and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an extremely well-planned, fun, and relaxing trip to Mexico.

Wonderful tour of Valle with great wines, food and friends!

If you are looking for a wine-tasting trip down to Valle de Guadalupe with minimal work on your part - just book Mario at Baja California Wine Tours, and let him do the rest! Our friends booked him last August for their 20th anniversary trip to Valle, and we booked him this August for our 30th anniversary. Lots of options available: one day public wine tour, one day private wine tour: 6-14 people, or you can even book an overnight stay in Valle. We booked the private day tour, had 9 people, and it was a wonderful, memorable trip w/ great wines, great food, beautiful scenery and great time w/ friends and family.

Mario picked us up at our house at 9 am; we traveled down to the border in a standard mini-van, but once across, switched to a luxury van with plush seats, air conditioning, and could play our own music on their sound system.

We enjoyed wine-tasting at 3 amazing wineries -- (1) Lechuza, by the vineyard, one of our favorites; LOVE their Amantes, and the grilled shrimp quesadillas we decided to order; (2) Casa Magoni (under a gorgeous 500-year oak tree with a band playing and cheese platter, and (3) Adobe Guadalupe - another favorite. We had a delicious 4-course lunch at renowned Chef Javier Placentia's Finca Altozano, with fresh garden salad, octopus, vegetable risotto (surprisingly delish), and lamb tacos with all the fixins. We ordered some cocktails and local Valle wines, and thoroughly enjoyed our time.

Mario was very organized, knowledgeable, expert at keeping our group on schedule, while still being friendly, and pointing out the sites and fun facts. Border crossing back was a breeze. I absolutely recommend Mario and Baja California Wine Tours, and look forward to my next Baja visit!
