Our trip to Tijuana was awesome, thanks to Juan our guide/driver. He made the trip a success. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. We had plenty of time to shop and enjoy. Juan made this trip a memorable one as we had never been to Mexico. Thank you Juan! This is a definite must do!
Juan was entertaining and made extra efforts to help us with a difficult purchase. Excellent tour and we felt safe. Couldn't ask for more.
An amazing day seeing the sights of Tijuana ,wan our tour guide was the best ,make sure you book the tour he is on
Lots of fun, Juan was great! I can't wait to go on another Mexico tour.
The best part of our tour was Juan -our driver. He was very knowledgeable and stayed with us the entire time. We thought we were going to be in a big BUS, but we ended up in a 9 person van that was a little run down. Other than that though, it was awesome. Got some TJ keepsakes and had a blast!
This tour was fantastic! We had such a great tour guide/driver, Juan. He gave us so much history and pointed out many things of interest along the way. He was very personable and knowledgeable. He said he had only been working for the tour company for a month. This tour was to include 2 free tacos (typical Mexican snack it's called in the tour listing) but he knew nothing about it. When another passenger said that's what he booked too, Juan went to call his superiors. When he came back he said that was true and took us to a restaurant. It seemed to me something wasn't right because he had to do a lot of talking to the restaurant people. And we didn't get to make our own like the listing said so something was up. In the end we each got our tacos and beans and paid for our own drinks. Cheap margaritas!!! We loved Tijuana. We went in thinking it was filthy dirty and a scummy town. Well, it's a big city just like any other. However, it was clean, clean, clean. No garbage at all on the street or sidewalks. (maybe in other areas but not Avenida Revolucion) It was cleaner than most cities here in the US!! We did some shopping and probably still got ripped off after bargaining, but whatever. It was a great experience and I'm glad to have said I've been there. This was a great trip all around!
The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. She had a good rapport with the restaurant employees which made us feel comfortable as using it as a homebase during the shopping portion of the tour. Wish there was more time to see the newer parts of the city.
Cheap margaritas, guide was really informative.
The ride to Tijuana was great. The driver was very good in finding ways to avoid time delaying road blocks. The 5 hour tour was not enough to know the town. Just a brief look at the museum from the bus and mostly a chance to shop along Calle Revolucion. Walking along this street is like running the gauntlet. You get hit on by all sorts of merchants and it requires strength of will and determination not to be intimidated into buying things that you don't want. Prices are posted with a dollar sign and its hard to tell when it is in pesos. Bargaining is expected and even after they come down in price you feel like you've been had. But, it's a different experience, that's for sure. I don't know if I would like to do it again.
Our tour lady was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the history and area. We loved going to lunch and shopping. The only negative I have and its really not a big one is, I thought that we were going to get to go inside historical buildings. We just rode by them. I would definetly tell others to take this tour. Oh one more thing it would of been nice to have more shopping time.
