The food, wine and art we experienced in Baja were beyond amazing. The food was creative, healthy and delicious. The wine makers we met were passionate and justly proud of their superb wines. The art and artists were beautiful and interesting. And our guide Jazmin was delightful, knowledgable, energetic and terrific in every way.

This tour was an extreme value for the money. It was well rounded, well run, informative and a delight to participate in. It was truly one of the most enjoyable experiences I've ever had. I'm already recommending it to friends and colleagues!

Wonderful Wine Experience! The Bounty of the Baja was better than expected. Mexican wine is excellent and I learned a lot: new grapes I was not familiar with, differences in oak barrels and wine storage, and how to make wine in general. But the real surprise was the food. Not what one thinks of when you say "Mexican" cuisine. Baja-Med fusion was delicious. If you like wine and good food, this is the tour for you

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 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.

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.
