The trip was amazing! We had 11 people in our group, so at times it was getting stressful to plan things. However, Viator and the tour guides made our experience one of the best! They were realizable and respond so quickly every time we had questions ! Thank you so much for everything!!

Ensenada was amazing, and our guide was even better! She was knowledgeable and communicated very well. We were provided with current and historical information on the region and learned so much. We were even advised on which vendors and souvenirs to avoid in order to ensure an authentic Mexican experience. La bufadora was awe inspiring, and we cannot wait to return someday!

Wonderful tour with Isabella
ROGER_G

We are very thankful we elected to book this tour to see La Bufadora. Isabella was the most gracious and knowledgeable guide. Her knowledge of the areas we drove through coupled with the scenic terrain made it a wonderful time. La Bufadora is a must-see natural site and the vendors at the adjacent street market were friendly and did not bother us. Highly recommend this tour, which we did as an independent excursion from our cruise ship.
