Great time!

Rafael was very nice and accommodating with us and my mother’s foldable walker. His English was good and we never felt rushed. Nice excursion, I would recommend it to anyone that wants an overview of Ensenada with little walking.

If you want the best Mango margaritas, Rafael knows.
Alan_L, Jan 2024
Our driver Rafael did an outstanding job of explaining the history of Ensenada. The highlight of the tour was the stop at the Rivera de Ensenada where I had the best Mango margaritas I have ever had.

Unique experience and enjoyable afternoon!
Nancy_C, Nov 2023
This was a cruise port stop and I had to find something that my husband (who has Aphasia) could enjoy. This was a perfect choice. We were picked up at the Corona Hotel, as requested, before heading to the beach for a photo stop; then onto the Alter where a beautiful wedding was about to take place on the lawn. If you stop, be sure to get a Margarita Mango...the best. After this stop we requested fish tacos. Now that's what a fish taco is suppose to taste like - absolutely delicious. Yes, it was from a sparkling clean food truck...and not walkable from the ship, but simply amazing. Our tour guide was so genuine and helpful, which made for a lovely afternoon ride. No request was too much to ask...thank you!!!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Nancy, thank you for your comments. It was really a pleasure for us to be able to help you and your husband have a pleasant time and if the tacos taste very good, we hope to see you soon.
Good time and ver informative
Jeannine_N, Oct 2023
Good tour guide was very accommodating. He took pictures and was willing to wait for us to get a drink or ride horses. We didn’t do the horses because it was a cloudy day but was a nice time anyway. The guide was on time and picked us up close to the cruise pier.

Thanks Jeannine was pleasure for us to be your tour guide in ensenada hope to see you soon
Model T Tour
Donna_M, Oct 2023
The car was fun, but the actual tour was lacking. Only went to 4 sites and there was little to no commentary while driving.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Donna, we appreciate your comment, it is important to us so we will provide better service. About the places you visited, believe me, Ensenada is very small and unfortunately there are not many places to visit in the city. Also remember that the tour time is 90 to 120 minutes. We hope to see you soon. Thank you.
Best way to explore Ensenada!
Craig_G, Aug 2023
Our driver Rafael was super nice and friendly. He was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us a great tour. He showed us the while city, not just the tourists areas. He gave us options as to what he could show us and let us explore places at our own pace. He even paused the tour so I could take my daughter horseback riding on the beach. He provided us with dining recommendations including some of the local's favorites. Definitely wouldn't of got this kind of experience going with one of the cruise ship packages and definitely a better value.

Thank you for your comments. It is a pleasure for us to know that your tourist experience in Ensenada met your expectations. We hope to see you soon.
Fun short tour with delicious food!
Diana_T, Jul 2023
It was our first time in Ensenada and this was a fun short tour to go on if you don't have much time. Rafael, the owner, was a great tour guide. He texted me a few days before to let me know where the meet up point was. My friend and I were coming off of a cruise and if you are too, give yourself some time to walk towards the meeting point. He was 15 minutes early and came around the corner honking the old school horn! We immediately knew this was going to be a fun tour. Our first stop was by the beach where you can go horse back riding. We opted not to ride horses and Raphael helped take our photos. We weren't big drinkers so he was able to change the itinerary for us and took us to a street vendor that he recommended that had amazing fish tacos, shrimp tacos, and chimichangas. It WAS DELICIOUS. The street vendor was so kind and helpful too. Would definitely recommend! As Raphael drove around, he would give us information and history about the area while driving. We went to Centro Social Cívico Cultural Riviera de Ensenada to have a margarita at Bar Andaluz and take a look around where it used to be a hotel and casino. Next stop we asked if we could go souvenir shopping so Raphael drove us through the downtown area where the shops were and showed us another shopping area where the prices were a bit less expensive than on the Main Street. He was able to drop us off at any location requested so we went souvenir shopping. Make sure to bring some cash if you're going to purchase food, drinks, souvenirs! Overall, a fun short tour and Raphael was friendly, helpful, funny, made us feel safe, and I appreciated his flexibility. My only suggestion is needing a bit more time to enjoy the margaritas, food, and shopping so we're not pressed for time, so if the tour was 3 hours instead of 2.5, I think that would have been perfect. Thank you Rafael!

Great tour of Ensenada
Jenny_H, Jun 2023
Our driver was very knowledgeable and took us to interesting spots. We got to sample margaritas, wine, and local street tacos. We did not feel rushed and he was able to drop us off where we wanted to. It was a good way to sample the city as we were traveling with a child. Would recommend!

Short Tour but Vehicles and Driver Made it Fun
Ronald_H, Apr 2023
Fun activity and friendly staff. Our carivan of little cars visited local highlights of Ensenada, but the vehicles range and speed limited what you were able to see in the one hour tour. Our tour highlights were the beach, Riviera Hotel, winery (in-town), drive-by of Hussong's Cantina and drop-off in main shopping area. I thought the cost was a little high for the limited time tour. Overal we enjoyed it and would recommend it to friends.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hello, thank you for your comments, they help us to do our job better. Regarding the duration of the tour, it's so much fun that time flies by without realizing it. I probably didn't notice it, but it took 1 hour and 45 minutes. We hope to see you soon in Ensenada.
Custom Tour
Cynthia_D, Nov 2022
The itinerary given on Viator was incorrect, but our driver took us wherever we wanted. We had booked 2 cars for our group of 6 and they offered for us to use a bigger car for us all to fit. We had a group ages 14-mid 60s and everyone enjoyed it.
Response from Host, Nov 2022

Fun way to tour Ensenada!
Leslie_S, Sep 2022
What a fun experience! We unexpectedly had 2 days in Ensenada on our cruise due to a schedule change, so were able to add this tour a few days prior and there was still availability. We were picked up at the port at 9:45am and let our guide Rigo know we do not drink alcohol and he customized our tour to several other areas in town. We went to a couple nice photo op stops, a stop at Playa Hermosa Beach, walking around the civic center and just around town for a total of about 2 hours before dropping us at the historical museum per our request. Absolutely would recommend this tour! Thank you for the excellent service!
Response from Host, Sep 2022
hello Leslie for us it was a pleasure to serve you and show you a little of our beautiful Ensenada we hope you have enjoyed your experience and we want to see you soon
Fun family adventure
Angela_M, Aug 2022
We were given a call a few minutes before our tour to make sure we knew where to meet. When we arrived Raphael was there waiting. He introduced us to our guide and we started our tour. Our guide took us to some great spots. He was informative and very friendly. We really enjoyed our time. Thank you
Anahid_D, Jul 2022
We had an EXCELLENT experience doing this tour with Rafael who was our driver and our tour guide. We got to experience downtown Ensenada and Rafael was accommodating in allowing us to stop for tacos, shopping and dessert. He also gave us a history of the city and answered whatever questions we had. All in all we had a great time and we will definitely use Rafael and Ford Model T Tours next time we come to Ensenada!!
