You list many things that we would do on the tour but we did not do several of them. We did not do these things listed on the tour Miraflores - House of Culture Santiago - Mission Buena Vista - Thermal Waters, Old General Olachea's militar hacienda. Of the 6 hour tour, 1.5 hours of the trip was spent in the horrible traffic of SJdC which I realize you have no control over. However, our tour guide Uriel was great and did a good job. We enjoyed our time with him. Thank you very much

We really enjoyed our day with Vicente, the day was relaxing, we didn’t feel rushed, entertaining meeting the other couple, yet educational. The furniture place was my favorite. The Lunch place we stopped at was really good too, we tried her guava water that was a very refreshing drink on that warm day.

Was great to get off the beaten path and see some parts of Baja I would have never seen on my own or appreciated fully without Carlos's history and explanation.

We had a great time on the villages tour with Francisco! He was so helpful and knew a lot about the history of the villages. We had a great time on this tour and the boat tour we took. We will definitely recommend Rancho to other travelers and use Rancho when we come back!
