We booked a tour online the day prior - rec'd confirmation email. Showed up at the designated place, waited for 45 minutes. Their office is located at the Santa Fe Depot, the office was locked.

It was a very disappointing experience to deal with this company! It is confirmed that the pickup would be at 0830-0845 in the morning of Jan.15 at my hotel but until 10 o'clock no one had showed up. No one picked up the phone nor answered the message or the mails!

We did an afternoon trip from San Diego to Tijuana with 5 Star Tours. What an amazing afternoon! We were all dubious to go to Tijuana as we'd heard bad stories but our experience was fantastic. It all started with the BEST tour guide ever - Juan! He was very knowledgeable and told us all about San Diego on our... More

The service and driver, Arturo were very good. My only gripe is that our confirmation said 5am..and we needed to be there 15MIN before. So, I was at the Santa Fe Depot at 4:45 am with my young teens.. in addition, confirmation said to go to the tour office in the depot..but in fact you needed to wait outside! The... More

Had a lot of fun on the beer tour. Learned a lot about beer at Ballast point brewery. That was the best behind the scenes place to visit. Our tour guide Ray Johnson was excellent and was full of information. I'd do this again in a heartbeat.

I replied to their email advising I had booked for December not November, I did not receive a reply. I received an email on the 1 December 2016 to advise we were a... More

My mom and I had a fantastic time on the Grand Baja tour. The bus was comfortable and Juan was an excellent guide. The day trip was a perfect combination of expert guidance and free time. We definitely recommend the tour for anyone who wants to get a little taste of Mexico in just one day!
