Three of us left one of the winetasting since it was very unorganized and we were jammed into a small space and there were no glasses. when she went to get the glasses she brought out some dirty glasses. That’s when we left - I would recommend ommitting Tahal winery. The last winery, Casa Freda, Was fabulous

I have read other reviews where 5-Star cancelled but even though the weather was "iffy" in San Diego and the events took place on a major holiday like Christmas, we had informative and energetic guides and fun trips.

This was definitely not the tour of a lifetime. Just basically drove through town, had some cheap tequila and awful tacos. Tijuana was a shabby town and tour didn’t do anything to make you appreciate the city.
