Thank yoг for this amazing opportunity! The guide was perfect, kind and informative and made the day trip to Mexico very special. I am not a tourist who buys clothes and such, I speak Spanish fluently too so it was great to once again immerse into the Mexican culture and not have to follow the rest of the group, this is the best thing about this trip. Help along the way, customs, all smoothly and quickly, but roam the streets by yourself and since I am a photographer, I really really loved it. Thank you for this!

If you think that you should go to a different country while visiting Los Angeles, you may take this tour. We took it to get the experience of crossing the border. A long bus ride from Los Angeles and a strip of shopping lane in Tijuana to visit. Bought some leather bags which are cheap and good. Had a fantastic lunch.

Very disappointing in this trip the driver did not provide tips on the best shopping and dining options. We were told to stick to two points of the street and if I didn't ask a few basic questions I may have been in trouble. It would have also been nice if interesting spots on our trip to Tijuana were pointed out. We were more informed by one of the shop keepers then the bus driver.

This was a really interesting trip. Our bus left on time and our guide from Starline, was really nice and helpful all the way. We waited only 45 minutes at the US border.

This was the day from hell! The bus trip was good. Crossing the border into Mexico easy. The shipping in Tijuana nothing special. Getting back into the USA through the border was one of the worst travel experiences ever. We stood in the line of people waiting to cross for a full 4 hours! No rest rooms. Nowhere to sit. It is the most appalling system. We were told that wasnt unusual. Dont do it!

Waiting to get back across the border took over two hours. Whilst glad I did it, I wouldn't do it again.
