When I first got a request to write a review for this tour, I wrote a pretty lengthy one of 1500 characters. Then I hit submit, it took me to the website and asked me to sign in, which I did. The my whole review just vanished as though I had never written one so I'm not going to waste my time again. It was a great tour and you should take it but the details will not be discussed here due to a poor email request link which allows you to spend time writing then tells you to log in after the fact without saving your review.

The trip was fantastic, mostly because it was only three of us. I found out the night before the trip that there were not enough people registered to run it as a tour. I was told if we pay $200 more, that we could go as a private charter. We decided to do that since we had just arrived from Europe. The pick-up was smooth and we headed to Tijuana and did the tourist thing. I asked if we could visit a winery on our trip, and the guide took us to a wonderful wine cellar in Tijuana. For $10 per person we had four tastings each of the reserve wine (read four almost full glasses of wine!). Needless to say, this made our jetlag disappear and brightened the trip. From there we went to Puerto Nuevo (Lobster Village). The food and vista were great (including a Margarita). Then, we went to Rosarito Beach, where we had time for some horseback riding. Coming back across the border was very fast--we were dropped off at and walked through the border (only the driver can go through in the car).

The guide was super knowledgeable, friendly, open, and was willing to take us were we wanted to go. I suggest you do this as a small group and do some little planning on what else you want to do (such as visiting a wine cellar). The price is worth it, especially if you consider it in Euros. The entire trip cost about 140€ per person (including tip and wine, but excluding any other purchases).

I recommend taking this trip if you just want a short trip and would like some Puerto Nuevo lobster and margarita, rather than driving yourself. The tour guide was very nice. I would recommend that the vehicle be thoroughly prior to the trip. The vehicle has a trash (food and drink containers) from a prior trip.

Total fabrication as to what is advertised on itinerary. Beware! They were 45 minutes late for pick up. We did not visit the zoo, bull ring, tower, or cultural center as advertised. Spent too long at rostria beach, when could spent time showing us other things on itinerary. Horses on beach had no shoes, emaciated, standing in blazing sun. They were digging holes in sand to try cool hooves off from burning sand. Mariachi singers sang for 3 minutes, if you don't pay they won't sing. Lunch at puerto Nuevo was big disappointment. It is not all u can eat beans, rice tortilla as advertised. We had to share what was given to us between four people. I didn't even know the other 3 people and I had to share from same plate! Lobster is very small, dry, over cooked. If you are hungry, lunch won't fill you! I looked on youtube and there are way better restaurants in puerto Nuevo, offering lobsters twice size as what we got! People were friendly enough, but after your money. Just non stop harassing for tourist dollar. Poor, dirty, depressed place. My biggest disappointment is that I felt ripped off by Viator tours for misleading us on the itinerary, and for disappointing lunch.
