Had a great day in Tijuana....even the wait crossing back over the boarder was worth it.

I highly recommend this day trip to Tijuana! It is a long day as it is a far drive from Hollywood but it was such a great experience. We had Craig as our tour guide and he is absolutely sensational! One of the best tour guides ever! He informed us of what to do and what not to eat, best places to eat and drink. The day trip was such a culture shock from crossing the border to eating all the cheap food and all the cheap drinks! Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our Tijuana day trip experience, however the traffic getting out of the city in the morning held us up and was so going....that's L.A. Renovations to the access crossing the boarder into Tijuana was a bit difficult for those with walking ability..a good walker, no problems. The buritto's were fantastic, and we enjoyed a mexican beer off the tap. Some enjoyed the shopping, we were there for the overall tourist experience. Our driver was very good although a bit of commentary would have been appreciated. We enjoyed sitting back and enjoying the scenery. Pick-up from the hotel was punctual and the ongoing coaches were organised quickly. We recommend....but don't complain!! Have a great day!!

Was a long day, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Jose, our driver, was fantastic!! He pointed out interesting spots on the trip to Tijuana and on arrival in Mexico he gave us clear instructions regarding where our pick up place and what our meeting time was. He got us there and back safely. Nothing was a bother. Never having been to Mexico before this trip was a great way to experience it. Highly recommend :-)
