Our driver, Juan, had colorful stories during our trip. We started on time and made it through Customs into Mexico with ease. We stopped in Tijuana to sample some tequila, and walk around the downtown. I felt perfectly safe the entire time. We stopped in Puerto Nuevo at the

When we planned to go, it rain. We got the E-mail around 11pm the night before saying that it got cancelled. I called the company and they said they already refunded TripAdvisor for our trip, it’s been almost 2 months and TA still haven’t refunded my money.

There was no visit no typical village, no beach, only few shops and traffic jam. To be avoided. The lunch was ok but we spend so many time in Tijuana so thete was no visit of Puerto Nuovo and no stop at Rosarito. A shame. We should be refunded normally

There was nothing grand about the Grand Baja Tour. Here are some of the letdowns: 1. It was advertised as a 10-hour Mexico tour. We were picked up at 9:00 a.m. Dropped off slightly past 4:00 p.m. Only 7 hours. 2. Our second stop was the very rundown Rosarito Beach Hotel. We

Response from fivestartours, Owner at Baja California Coastal Day Trip from San Diego
Responded 16 Jan 2020
I am sorry about your experience however we strive to always provide the best experiences on our tours. First and foremost, our tours are never advertised as a 10 hour Mexico tour since all times are estimated. During the winter months, we tend to return back from Mexico during sunset because of safety concerns for our guess. Secondly, our tour guides are allowed to run the tour as they wish since situations and incidents happen and they can modify the tour. The most important fact about your visit to Tijuana is that most areas during the winter are closed due to the lack of visitors in the area. I am sorry you had this experience. Please contact us so we can consult you regarding your refund request. Thank you!

Our trip began on Saturday, August 31 & the bus was suppose to pick us up at 9:00 am in San Diego, yet the bus was 45 minutes. When we arrived in Tijuana, the bus was late again. The driver Juan drove like a mad man. You heard "whoa's" and "hold on" and "watch out" sounds
