Tour guide was fantastic. We had a fabulous tour and learnt so much about San Diego and Mexico. Would definitely recommend this tour to our friends and when we are back in San Diego will definitely use Viator tours again.
After booking, I had read some concerning reviews about this tour and so became a little nervous. But there was no reason, the tour was fantastic, and our tour guide (Mike) was the most friendly and engaging AND knowledgeable we could have wanted. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, and everything ran as smoothly as clock-work. I am really glad we took the tour, and would point out that we brought along with us my parents-in-law who are both in their eighties, and they had such a lot of fun. Yes, I really do recommend this tour, and no, I haven't been paid to say that :-)
We were a bit worried about the reviews that talked about lengthy delays crossing the border back into the USA but we had no problems. Took us less than 10 minutes. The border crossing is not an issue associated only with this tour - it is the same as anywhere where you cross a border from one country into another. Fantastic tour guide.
Very prompt and on time with a very good narrative. Enjoyable trip with exception of a horrendous wait at the Mex US border,not your fault and no picture opps at Old town or Gas Town but well worth taking
Very good tour but we were unable to do the additional harbour tour due to road works which was disappointing. Enjoyed the few hours in Mexico.
Waste of money didn't take us to all sites listed not recommended
We start our trip with stopping for coffee for one lady. This lady after the cup fell asleep so for her may be good experience. So after we spend long time for this lady beeing served our guide started to be nervous and tried to make fast trip to compensate delay. He did some "funny" comments on us (we wanted to take some pictures of lanscape - what a crazy idea on trip). Trip was super speed, we didn't enjoy it. In the end the guy left us in village for lunch and after coming back he told us that the second part of the trip is cancelled. I can't imagine worse way how to get know SD.
This tour was a total waste of time. It was so unorganized. The driver/guide was crass and uninformed about most of the sites we saw. He also had a very cheap sense of humor and did not make people feel welcome or at ease on this tour. I got my tour short early and skipped out on the Tijuana trip because I had such a bad impression of this tour from the Lajolla and Corada excursions. I would not recommed this tour to anyone. They are sites that are accessible via Rent a Car or City buses and Trolleys. For the price i paid for this tour, it was better for me to map things out myself and plan these excursions via public transport.
