Ensenada's BajaMed Wine, Food, and Shopping Shore Excursion

This is a culinary tour that makes us proud because every dish and beverage you'll be tasting is 100% grown, created and cooked especially for us. For starters, the original "margarita" figures as the classic welcome toast at an iconic site where it is said that Al Capone and the gang drank and enjoyed their freedom. After walking a few blocks, we'll hop on a bus for just a minute and arrive at the first company along the Pacific Coast that actually bottled and sold wine. Their olive oil is also legendary, so we'll try them both. Lunch is two more blocks away, at a charming restaurant with one of the most creative kitchens in the region. The experience has two more stops: a second wine tasting at a beautiful winery with a wide assortment of most of the regional production and, finally, a last stop at Hussongs Cantina, supposedly the oldest in all of the Californias, featuring live mariachi or "norteña" bands where we will enjoy a farewell crafted beer. The cruise port is located only 8 blocks away, strolling about the touristy Primera Street.

We had a great half day with Sergio, he was punctual and exactly where he said he would be. He was knowledgeable about the town, its history and artists. The winetasting and tacos wasn’t exactly what we expected but it was great! The different foods we tried at different vendors were ALL amazing, and he was very knowledgeable about the wines produced locally (they tasted great too!) Highlights were the Riviera cultural centre, the Ceviche tostadas, and the viewpoint with stunning views across the port town of Ensenada. Highly recommend if you would like a more local guide with lovely food and wine.

It was my girlfriend's birthday and we had a great time from start to finish. Luigi was super nice, attentive, good-natured and an exceptional guide. He made us an agenda of visits to tourist places and hidden gems that deserve to be tried by the entire world. He didn't chase us but we used the time as we wanted and completed the plan as he had visualized it. My girlfriend was delighted with her birthday celebration, so much so that it became one of her best birthdays ever.

This trip with Eugenia and Luigi was wonderful. They were so pleasant, welcoming and knowledgeable. We loved hearing their stories and their accounts of the local history. Eugenia was so pleasant to introduce to local artists and her friends along the way. We found this special. Luigi gave a great account along the way and took such amazing pictures of us along the way. We found the tour with both of them lovely and will cherish the memories!!

The guides were amazing. Biking in Ensenada was such a fun experience and they took us to the best taco places. We had such a fun time and I highly recommend it!

Eugenia was the best! She is amazing and knowledgeable.
