What Our Clients Say

SJDML FOOTER_edited.jpg
We have been several times to Los Cabos and have been on numerous food tours. However, this one was the best one we have ever been on! Great food (more than just tacos) and candy! And with hotel pickup and dropoff included! So no hussles with taking a cab or driving ourselves. We could even take a couple of beers like this ;-) We highly recommend this tour, which we figured out has just recently started in San José. Keep up the excellent work!
