The Bounty of Baja is a diamond in the rough. It is everything you thought and nothing you thought. It educates and delights in every way. If you enjoy learning and are open to challenging your own preconceived notions, you should take this trip! Fabulous food, winning wine-makers, and talented artists make a glorious combination.


If you love Mexican art, would like to try a different kind of Mexican cuisine, and haven't tasted a Mexican wine but are willing to give it a go, this program is for you!


If the guide on this trip Luca led another trip I'd take it again just to learn from her! Awesome educational experience!


I thought Ensenada was beautiful, bountiful and the people were warm and friendly. Unforgettable sunsets over the bay were very impressive.


This Baja trip was one of the best Road Scholar trips I've taken. The hotel was right on the ocean, and I could see and hear the waves breaking on the rocks from my window and balcony. We tasted a lot of wine. Some days three wineries in a day with up to 6 wines at some wineries. The wines were quite good. They do a lot of blending of varietals like the French have always done. Some of the wineries even own some vineyards in France and blend the French wine with the Baja wine. We had wine with lunch and dinner as well. Lunch and dinner were four course affairs. At one 4 course lunch we got a wine pairing for each course. Baja med cuisine is nothing like Tex-Mex or Cal-Max. Local seafood and produce are utilized. We also met several interesting artists. Some of the folks were immigrants from other countries. Some of the artists chose to live in Baja to live cheaply and still be able to show and sell their art in the San Diego and Los Angeles market. This an excellent small group trip. The group leader, Luka from Andiamo Travel was superb.


The program was delightful! Interesting wineries and great meals. Highly recommended.


If you like wine (particularly red!), beautiful scenery and many course meals this is the program for you.


Anyone who is a wine lover and wants a new experience on this subject is highly encouraged to take this adventure. It is very well put together. It also included fine dining and visits to artists homes and galleries to give a good balance of activities. People were very welcoming to us everywhere we went.
