We loved the tour! Highly recommend; enjoyed the boat tour to the Arch in Cabo, the glass blowing factory demonstration, seeing San Jose although would have been nice to have a little more time there to browse shops and skip the jewelry store stop for pearl demo as felt like a sales pitch. Lastly the lunch stop was great as food was authentic and off the tourist area which we would not have ventured on our own:) Our guide was fantastic, informative and fun.

It's a workout but so worth it! Stopping at Lover's Beach was the highlight. Our guides gave us plenty of time to relax and take in the views. Definitely recommend.

We had the best time ! Great knowledgeable guides, beautiful location, and fair price. Thank you so much we couldn’t have asked for a better tour!

Professional, courteous & on time service got picked up in a luxury style SUV

Casey was a great guide. This excursion was awesome!
