Very good tour. Juan was a very good tour guide. We visited downtown Tijuana, Puerto Nuevo, and Rosarito Beach. The meal at Puerto Nuevo was excellent. Get the fish. One downside is people were always trying to sell stuff. But for a first time visit to Baja California is was a minor inconvenience.

It was a wonderful time spent during day trip to Baja California Coast. You dont have to worry about anything. You have already good driver and perfect guide at one. Everything about trip is explained to you very clear . So one thing what youll need it is some money to spend /if you wish to / and a good humor.

Juan the driver was sooooooooo AWESOME!!! Everyone should just ask for him! He was very knowledgeable about the area and tied in local history with pop culture. He was able to get us through the border at record time. My family and I really appreciated all that he was able to accomplish within 8 hours.

This was my first time in San Diego and the day trip to Baja Mexico was so interesting! Our tour director was great about getting through the border quickly both in and out! and giving us historic and current points of interest. Our first stop was a shopping stop where we walked up and down the street all the while being lured by shopkeepers for shots of tequila and other native goods. We then stopped at the border wall and marveled at the site where the US and Mexico border wall met at the ocean while our tour director gave us historic info. We then drove long the coast and got to see amazing waterfront homes with spectacular views of the ocean. Lunch was ok, not stellar, and the mariachi singers were loud but the restaurant overlooking the ocean view which was just gorgeous. Our last stop was Rosarito at the beach. The beach was awkwardly crowded and we were constantly bombarded by people trying to sell us goods and services. Overall the trip was quite a learning experience and we felt totally safe and had no incidents whatsoever. Highly recommend this experience in Baja California!

We had a great day in Baja. Shopping time in Tijuana where it was sunny and warm and the shopkeepers were dealing! Silver and leather goods are the big attractions. Lunch in Puerto Nuevo--regional seafood specialties. I had lobster my husband had sea bass. Charming little town. On the way from Tijuana to Puerto Nuevo we encountered some thick fog, which cleared in time for lunch as the restaurant sits above the ocean and has beautiful views. On the way back we stopped in Rosarito which has a historic hotel and beautiful beach. Unfortunately, the fog had returned, but we still enjoyed our time there--a few shops to visit, walk down to the beach, and some wine tasting. Our driver, Juan, aka JJ, was very knowledgable and was well known on the Tijuana shopping street so he pointed out the more reputable shops to stop in. The only things needing changing were beyond our control--the weather and border crossing. Glad we did this with a tour and not on our own! Driving in Baja is a fright!

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).

Overall the trip was good and the lunch was excellent. Crossing border took very little time and the guide seemed to very knowledgeable about this. the rip was very enjoyable and sufficient time was given for each place. I only have one major concern. The tour guide/ driver seems to forget/reluctant putting seat belt on and he even told me during pick up from hotel that it was not necessary for me and up to me. After driving some distance for each travel hand in out trip, he only put on the belt when the car alarm was on, This s dangerous not only for him, but for all passengers in any unfortunate event. He should be told to fix his seat belt before starting to drive. I also wonder why the seat belt alarm did not go on until after sometimes into the driving. Although it was a great trip, the cost could have been within 100. It was a bit pricey than other trips that I took with Viator.

The beach stop was a bit boring, to sit on a chair on the beach you had to pay. Tour guide Juan was great and very knowledgable. Overall it was worth doing.

Har du bare en dag til rådighet, og ønsker å ha besøkt Mexico kan vi anbefale denne turen. Vår buss-sjåfør er flink til å fortelle historie og vise frem steder. Vi får besøke både storby og mindre steder. Det er tid for litt shopping, og vi får servert havets delikatesser på en mexikansk restaurant. Det er selvsagt begrenset hva man kan se, oppleve og få med på en dagstur, men absolutt verdt pengene.

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.

Good overall for getting a taste of Mexico and could have been better see the following.
1. Viator the booking website was not in sync with the pick up details with the tour operator. Viator website offered free pick up at locations not covered by the tour operator. Called the tour operator the day before to confirm pick up details without getting confirmation. The tour operator should send an email confirming pick up details. Ended up paying additional 30 for pick up.
2. Bus was comfortable however could not hear the tour guide sitting at the back of the bus. The microphone system was not loud enough to overcome bus noise.
3. Tour guide needs to confirm return time and location at each stop and make sure everyone knows. Had to ask other customers.
4. Found the lobster Ortegas Rosarito at our table of 4 over cooked in some case and just right in others. Service was slow to set up silver ware place mat and serve chips and salsa. I had the beef fahita which arrived first and was tasty.
5. Happy to see Tiajuana and Rosarito again after decades hiatus.

This trip is worth it, beats the hassle of driving yourself.. Rosarito beach was packed with people and carnival like..
