The best part of our tour was Juan -our driver. He was very knowledgeable and stayed with us the entire time. We thought we were going to be in a big BUS, but we ended up in a 9 person van that was a little run down. Other than that though, it was awesome. Got some TJ keepsakes and had a blast!

This tour was fantastic! We had such a great tour guide/driver, Juan. He gave us so much history and pointed out many things of interest along the way. He was very personable and knowledgeable. He said he had only been working for the tour company for a month. This tour was to include 2 free tacos (typical Mexican snack it's called in the tour listing) but he knew nothing about it. When another passenger said that's what he booked too, Juan went to call his superiors. When he came back he said that was true and took us to a restaurant. It seemed to me something wasn't right because he had to do a lot of talking to the restaurant people. And we didn't get to make our own like the listing said so something was up. In the end we each got our tacos and beans and paid for our own drinks. Cheap margaritas!!! We loved Tijuana. We went in thinking it was filthy dirty and a scummy town. Well, it's a big city just like any other. However, it was clean, clean, clean. No garbage at all on the street or sidewalks. (maybe in other areas but not Avenida Revolucion) It was cleaner than most cities here in the US!! We did some shopping and probably still got ripped off after bargaining, but whatever. It was a great experience and I'm glad to have said I've been there. This was a great trip all around!
