Worshippers and visitors can also attend Mass services, which take place daily.

Wonderful Enthusiastic Walking Tour

Historical and Cultural Walking Tour of San José del Cabo
This tour was wonderful! Kristian brings a lot of personality to the history of the town and presents a fascinating overview of how San Jose del Cabo came to be, as well as offering information on the local ecology, food, and modern society. The tour was well run and easily walkable, at no point did any of it feel overwhelming or hard to keep up with. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and may even do it again ourselves next time we are in town.

Evening Flavors of San Jose, Culture and Food Tasting Tour
Nice guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. The food was terrific just a few places but everything made fresh. Definitely some up-selling with drinks so bring cash. But overall a nice experience and I would recommend to others.

Market and Tacos: Food Tasting Tour of San Jose del Cabo
We went on this tour with Gilberto. He was a phenomenal guide, who spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about the wildlife, history and food of the region. The restaurants were gems we probably would have missed without him, and everything was absolutely delicious.

This was a fantastic way to see this wonderful town. Safety was never an issue and Christian's knowledge base was exceptional as a guide for San Jose del Cabo. It was a leisurely ride with pit stops at several key places. Highly recommended!

The highlight of our trip to Cabo!

Evening Flavors of San Jose, Culture and Food Tasting Tour
My group of friends took a girls trip to Cabo, which was fabulous. We wanted one day NOT on the beach or doing water activities, and found this tour online. We wanted to get out of Cabo in order to see the culture of the area away from the affects of tourism. This was the perfect fit for us! The drive took about 45 mins from our condo in Cabo to San Jose, and it was SO worth it. Our tour guide, Francisco, really took us to the side of town to where the locals eat. The food was amazing (and so plentiful! we are still full), and we loved the history and culture lessons. And the tequila tasting... WOW! A few of us were not tequila drinkers before this stop. Now, we know HOW to properly drink it and savor it. Overall, Francisco really took care of us; by the end of the tour, we felt like he was our long lost friend. Don't miss this tour ...I'm still dreaming about the pollo mole tamales...YUM!

Market and Tacos: Food Tasting Tour of San Jose del Cabo
The food tour guided by Ricardo was wonderful. We visited a handful of local restaurants for some authentic Mexican tacos, enchiladas and also a cheese and tequila tasting. The tour was not just about the tacos but also about the history and culture of San Jose del Cabo and also the friendly and warm locals were very inviting. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a unique experience outside the resorts to learn about the local food and culture of this beautiful place.

Ricardo was our tour guide and he was an amazing man. We had a great time and he has so much knowledge. He went out of his way to find me my souvenir. He also dropped of us off ( which doesn’t include in the package) Ask for Ricardo!!
