VALLE DE GUADALUPE, MEXICO'S WINE COUNTRY
Our most popular one-day tour to Mexico's Guadalupe Valley wine region includes round-trip transportation with a bilingual guide, wine tasting at two or three of the Valle's best small-batch wineries, and a multi-course gourmet "campestre" style lunch/supper served al-fresco, overlooking the vineyards. Designed for a more discriminating wine enthusiast, our wine country tours are a cut above the usual wine tasting tours offered by other tour companies.
With departures from San Diego to Ensenada, this full-day Mexican wine and food experience also includes an artisanal cheese plate, a cold-pressed olive oil tasting, and a guided behind-the-scenes winemaking tour at one of the boutique wineries on your itinerary. Craft beer fans may also elect to visit one of the region's micro-breweries on this tour. Our bilingual guides are knowledgable ambassadors of Baja California's wine and culinary scene.

TIJUANA CRAFT BEER + STREET TACOS TASTING TOUR
While most beer enthusiasts are familiar with San Diego's designation as a center for craft brewing excellence, many have no idea that this artisan movement has crossed the border into Baja California! Craft beer nerds in-the-know are proclaiming Tijuana the capitol of Mexican craft brewing. And since only a few of these innovative craft beers have crossed North, you'll need to dust off your passport to join our curated and guided tour of Latin America's fastest growing craft beer movement.
Balancing your intake of Mexico's high-octane craft beer, we'll introduce you to some of the most famous street-style taco stands in Tijuana. From classic carne asada, to Guadalajaran-style "birria", to the hand-carved "al pastor" pork taco, and perhaps a crispy fish taco for good measure, we'll stay off your hunger pains with the best-of-the-best street tacos in Tijuana.

On this curated and guided full-day foodie tour of Ensenada's culinary delights, you'll eat the best Baja-style fish tacos right where they were invented, sip a margarita at the iconic cantina where Mexico's most famous cocktail was conceived, enjoy street-style beef and pork tacos at the region's famous truck-stop-taco-stand, and down fresh ceviche tostadas at the place Anthony Bourdain proclaimed "the best food cart in the world."
