Juan was an excellent guide and made our trip very enjoyable. His knowledge of the area was great and I felt quite safe knowing he was keeping track of our group. Would highly recommend this trip to any coming to San Diego.

We were greeted nicely at the station to guide us where we need to start. We were skeptical to go in Tijuana on our own, so we choose to take this trip so we will feel at ease. The tour guides are very knowledgeable on their own hometown, they pretty much speaks English and Spanish. Our guides gave us good tips and reminders all the time. If you would like to go to Tijuana for a short time, they have good eateries and places to shop. I would recommend this trip to anyone but make sure to be very careful around the area and keep your eyes on your valuables.

Juan is an amazing tour guide! We took relatives who live in San Diego with us and they could not believe how much they learned from Juan. Juan will take you to the safe and secure areas of Tijuana to the best deals in the city for things such as leather goods, liquor, restaurants, t-shirt shops etc. Juan will stay with your group and walk your from store to store or let you move on your own with his expert guidance of where to go and where not to go. Juan will also surprise you with his musical talents! Five Star tours provided excellent service, clean vehicles and prompt service, right on time! This tour is fun, a great value and if your lucky enough to get Juan, its a guranteed great time!
