Thank yoг for this amazing opportunity...

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 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!

The tour was a waste of my day. The tour guide took us to 6 different stores that sold the exact same thing. He seemed to be friends with the owners of each store and every time any of us suggested a different store he would literally say "no". Don't go on this tour

Trip to Tijuana was OK, but Tijuana was like stepping back a few decades, full of shopkeepers hustling for customers, trying to sell you second rate stuff. Worth it if you want to see how the other half live.
