I am not really sure if you can call this a Tour....It was more like a bus ride with escort over the border.
We were asked to be ready at 7.30am, the bus took us to the meeting point where we waited for ages and then were directed to another bus, I think we left there at about 9.30am.
It's a long way there was no commentary along the way, just bad rap music and we had to drop some people off at Sea World in San Diego on the way.
Once we arrived at Mexico, we were told to get of f the bus and wait while he parked it, 10 mins past and we were thinking maybe we had been ditched! He eventually came back and said we had to get into a taxi in Mexico to go to the Tijuana shopping strip, there were only 4 of us on the tour plus the 'tour guide' he put both me and my 12yo son in the passenger front seat! Let me tell you Mexicans are NOT the safest drivers in the world!
Once we got there he said I'll meet you back here in 3 hours and was gone.
The actual Tijuana experience was great, the bartering and dealing, it was a real eye opener for my son. I have been once, 20 years ago and back then they had donkeys spray painted as Zebra's and they charge you for a photo, guess what, they are still doing it! Nearly every street corner has one.
We got some great souvenirs and I bought a great leather bag and jacket and a 1 litre bottle of Kahlua was only $10! Pity you can only bring back 1 ltr per person!
We met the tour guide at the pre-allocated time, did the dangerous drive back and waited in line at the border for nearly an hour.
We picked up the Sea World couple and headed back, the driver must have been in some sort of rush as he almost had 2 accidents and we didn't get back to our hotel until after 9pm because of the crazy Fri night traffic on the freeway.
Not a great 'Tour' but I would go back to Tijuana, it was fun.
