Great experience with an awesome host

My wife purchased this tour for my birthday and I couldn't have been happier. Mario is very informative and easy going and we both got along with him very well. Will definitely go again the next time we're in the San Diego area. The drive there and the region are so beautiful. It's a very unique opportunity to get to see a wine region that for years was a hidden gem but is now drawing the eye of many tourists. Also the wine is fantastic.

Amazing experience

What an incredible experience!!! Mario was so knowledgeable so not only did we get to learn about the wine region but also the culture in general. The tour completely exceeded expectations!!! Mario was also still willing to do the tour even though it was just my friend and I that signed up — most tour companies would not do this. He was so friendly and took us to amazing spots. One of the best tours I’ve ever been on!!!

Amaizing Baja Tour with the locals!

It never gets old to take a tour with Mario and Baja California Wine Tours. As a repeating customer I can truly recommend Mario because he takes you places that only a local would know. Amazing food and plenty of it. Delicious tequila and mescal and craft beer as well. Shopping and sightseeing through the local markets, museums, botanical gardens etc. Our Tijuana-Rosarito-Puerto Nuevo tour had it everything. Mario took us to unimaginable corners of Tijuana and Rosarito that I never thought existed. The Tijuana beer factory was my favorite but my partner's favorite was the amazing Baja style lobster with beans, rice and flour tortillas. Plenty of Mariachi music as well in this tour. Mario knows everyone and he is very funny and professional and it's like traveling with a history professor because of the amount of information he shares with you regarding the region. Don't go with anyone else! Mario is the man!!!

Amazing Food, Drink and Music in Baja Mexico

Mario gives a first rate tour! He has lots of great history and interesting facts about the area to share with you. The food, beer, margaritas and music were amazing. We have traveled the world and been on many tours. Mario is our new favorite tour operator and the Puerto Nuevo tour has made our top ten! Take this tour! You won't regret it : )

Perfect day! Perfect guide!

We had a fantastic day on our wine tour with Mario. Valle de Guadalupe is beautiful. Mario had picked out the nicest places to visit with good atmosphere, nice wines and lunch. Mario is the perfect guide, he knows a lot about the area, about the wines and cheeses. He is a good storyteller and a good driver. We had some rain on the trip, but really, I remember the day as a very sunny day, We were a couple travelling and met a nice family of four. Very good company, including Mario.

Lobster and Margaritas!

Our tour last Friday was amazing! When we were picked up, we were told by our guide, Mario, that we would have a private tour since the other people in the party cancelled last minute the night before the tour. I really appreciate the tour not being cancelled on us. Instead, we had an amazing private tour with a very knowledgable guide. The stops were fun and educational, and the lunch was delicious! Our tour guide also included a craft beer tasting for us because we are beer drinkers. All in all, it was a fabulous day, and we will definitely be taking another tour in the near future. We highly recommend taking a day tour with Mario if you are looking for a fun day excursion across the border!

A great experience - do it!

This was a fabulous day. Mario knows the region very well and selected three great wineries and a wonderful restaurant for lunch. He knows the local customs very well which provides for a safe, carefree experience. The scenery was beautiful and the wine was surprising good. Before going on the tour I wondered, i) should I bring my passport, I did and made the return board crossing easier; 2) would I feel safe, I felt very safe and attribute that to Mario; 3) could I drink the water, I did and all was fine. Overall, a great experience - would go again, for even longer, with no hesitation.

Wine Tour with Mario

Mario is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about the area. He has a true passion for going out of his way to make your trip memorable. Be sure to ask about some of HIS more memorable trips. 

My only recommendation was that the online form said hotel pickup was included. But we had to take an Uber to meet Mario. But if that’s my only complaint, then I’m happy! :-)
