Excellent Walking Tour of San Jose del Cabo
May 2021
This walking tour was fascinating and engaging. Our guide was careful to find spots for us to sit when possible, and he paused when traffic went by, so we had no problem hearing him. There's a long version of this tour given to local high school students--I wouldn't mind having a part two so we could all have the opportunity to learn more about San Jose del Cabo.

Kristian is amazing! Knowledgeable and fun!
We had a great time with Kristian on our historical walking tour! We ended up having a private tour with just Kristian, my husband and myself. It was interesting and enjoyable and we learned so much in a short time. His passion for his city and building up the community is infectious and encourages you to get involved. We actually had so much fun chatting with him and asking a million questions that we didn’t even technically finish the tour, but we can’t wait to go back and complete the last bit one day. 😃Gracias Kristian!

Christian was knowledgeable and so easygoing! It was a beautiful evening and an easy walk around downtown learning about the culture and history of the area! We ended at the main square at the time of day when all the locals were out and we really felt the community vibe!

Incredible Activity
Apr 2021 • Friends
I totally recommend this activity! It was a super experience full of history, culture and joy.
It must be something you need to schedule if you come to Los Cabos, it would help you tu know better la Baja, and the most important to love the Baja.

Nothing like the history of Mexico
Had a great hostoric walk around San Jose with our cool guide Kristian who speaks great English. Mexico is an amazing place and it's history is so very interesting. Especially when delivered from a knowledgeable guide like Kristian. Being a guide myself I know the job from the inside so take it from me Kristian knows his stuff.

A MUST if visiting San Jose del Cabo!
Mar 2021 • Couples
Taking this tour was an absolutely amazing experience for my family of five. We were greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable host and took us back through time in San Jose. We walked beautiful paths of the city and learned about the history behind architecture, geography, the native people to los Cabos and so much more. I was concerned that the age difference between mine early 60s parents and mid 20s guests would have challenged the attention of some, but this tour was fascinating, fun and held our attention throughout. I would recommend this experience for anyone who calls themselves a local in los Cabos and for tourists who have fallen in love with such a rich city. This tour is not only educational for visitors it also educates local youth about the history of their home, connecting them to a location-based identity. (For some extra fun, we booked this tour on a Thursday night during San Jose’s downtown art walk.)

San Jose has a beautiful history that you shouldn't miss out on!
Mar 2021
We highly recommend the tour to anyone traveling through Los Cabos. The tour points out many details about San Jose that you may not notice at first glance, as well as refute any inaccuracies you might have heard about the areas history. Our guide was a captivating storyteller and super accommodating. The tour is very thorough and goes over geography, wildlife and the inhabitants that make San Jose special. There is an option to stay for an extra 20-30 minutes at the end that ties all the history together into the present day. The proceeds from this tour also help to support the local youth. Overall, an enjoyable and enlightening experience.
