    We own a place at Estero and wanted to explore an area we have never been so decided on oso negros tour! We had a delightful afternoon with Oscar! We visited Infinito winery and did a tasting. The area is so quiet and peaceful. We then went to Dairy cheese farm and did a tour and tastings of cheeses. Oscar was the perfect guide with comfortable safe driving and knowledge of area. It is so nice to now have a friend to connect with for any activities we want to do! We will definitely use him again! Thank you Oscar for a fun day!

    Absolutely loved this trip. My girl and I came down for the first time in Mexico. Jorge picked us up at our hotel and was a perfect guide. He had amazing stories and was a perfect driver, he knows the route well having taught in the area. I hate other people's driving and felt perfectly safe in his car. We were on the trip from 11 to almost 7 and at no point did he rush us. He even waited for us to get our ice cream at the end because it came late. Jorge's English is perfect you'll have no issue understanding him at all. He will gladly take pictures with his phone and any camera you bring and he's always ready to explain anything that may need translation. Our tour was in both Spanish and English but Jorge made sure to fill in any gaps that may have been missed or skimmed. And for those people that hate overbearing tour guides Jorge is the guy for you. He knows when he's needed and when he's not he leaves you those private moments and doesn't hover all while capturing your trip. If you're coming out her ask for Jorge. On another note if you wish to see the full Vinyards in full swing go earlier than November, but I can honestly say the weather was absolutely perfect.

    Fue una muy agradable experiencia haber visitado los vinos Infinito y la atención de Pepe, el dueño, la Cava de Quesos Ramonetti y Lavanda

    We had an excellent experience from the beginning to end. Pepe from Infinito Winery was very attentive and cordial. Provided details about his wine. We where able to taste differently types. Thet our guy Luigi was excellent, he showed us around and even recommended good eating places. At our second stop Cava De Marcelo we learned about cheese making, history about the place over 100 years. We enjoyed this experience very much would fully recommend it.

    Jorge, our tour guide, was our favorite part about the experience!! Our trip to Ojos Negros was so memorable because we were able to see Ensenada through the eyes of someone who loves their hometown! 💗 We shared stories of our shared experiences from each side of the border. My husband lived in Mexico as a child and hasn’t been back since our children were born and the drive to the vineyards was incredible: informative, fun and entertaining. La Cava de Marcelo was a highlight of the tour - our guide there was Elias, he was young and so well-imformed and funny. We asked tons of questions as we were there more for the cheese than the vino. 🧀😋 Also highly recommend the lavender farm- Aleyah-Granja de Lavanda: idyllic piece of heaven with wonderful service and amazing food 🔥. The kids adored all the animals on this farm-to-table wonderland. Everything on the tour was epic but most of all Thank you Jorge for an unforgettable day!!!!💓
