Join us for a nice, short drive while your certified tour guide tells you everything you need to know about the Ensenada area’s history.

Our first stop on the tour is the 'Riviera del Pacifico', a former 1930s prohibition era gambling casino with an incredible story that your tour guide shares as you enjoy a complimentary Margarita cocktail - at the bar where the popular drink was created.

Afterwards, we visit Ensenada's cathedral where you'll admire the beautiful art and architecture. Then it is a short drive to Bodegas de Santo Tomas, Mexico's second-oldest winery. Enjoy tasting of some of the country's best wines inside this historic building that doubled as the home of an ex-president of Mexico back in the 1930s.

Once back in the bus, you go on a city tour to see old Ensenada, including Parque Revolucion (the oldest park in the state), the original and very famous Hussong Cantina established in 1892, the fish market known as ‘El Mercado Negro', and the Civic Plaza with its statues.

Our last stop is only a few blocks away from the pier at Tequilera Doña Engracia, where you can opt to stay on your own for a free tequila tasting or remain on the bus for a ride back to your cruise ship.
