"Live the life for a day!"
May 2016
We had the best time with the San Diego Craft Brewery Tour. The tours, walking about the city, the beer, and the people were amazing! So many places that you visit in San Diego just pull you in and make your vacation feel like you are "living the life." That fantasy of the beach life, the sunshine the cool shops and the people all come to life with the brewery tour. The customer service is so perfect that you forget that you are a customer. Instead, everyone makes you feel like a friend, tasting the cold, cold beer and loving every minute. Great Pizza and the Brewery itself was interesting too!

"New Years Eve Party Tour in Baja California Mexico"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed March 07, 2020
This company operates in an unethical manner. The wording of this event led everyone on the tour to believe they were staying at the Rosarito Beach Hotel (Rated 1 of 15 hotels) . We received an email a few days before the trip showing our hotel booking at Hotel Festival Plaza (Rated 14 of 15). Yikes! It was unacceptable. Everyone on our tour was highly dissatisfied. We were promised compensation when we told them we would not be staying at that hotel. They agreed to give us a refund but did not discuss the amount of the refund. When we returned home, we followed up with Five Star Tours but have not received a refund. BEWARE! Find another tour company.

There are not enough words in the English language to express how positively I feel about the staff – particularly, Juan - and my experiences with Five Star Tours. March 2, 2020 was my second time traveling with Juan to beautiful Baja, California via Tijuana. Two other guests were also on the tour. With the approximate ten hours of the four of us spending time together, it felt like we were family. Juan was so passionate and knowledgeable as far as all things Mexico, Tijuana, Baja and the surrounding areas. It felt like we were given a history lesson about the country and its rich culture. In addition to that was his kindness, his beautiful spirit and his willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that we all had the best experiences possible. I will forever be indebted to him for contributing to my best birthday ever. I look forward to my next Five Star tour. #fivestartours #bajacalifornia #rosaritabeach #traveler #tijuana #vivamexico Janice G. Washington

"Five Star Tours - Baja Wine Trip"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 26, 2020
Our driver was great! She had a great personality and shared interesting tidbits along the way. I would rate this as 5 stars, except it was POURING the day of our tour and the van started leaking. Thankfully, there was no one up front so I could sit in a dry spot. We could also bring along drinks and snacks. Wish we were told that before we got on the van, but I may have missed that in the email confirmation. Winery and restaurant staff were friendly and informative, and patient with us as no one really spoke Spanish. Do be sure to bring a few coins in case you need to request restroom stops along the way. Some of them may have a "tip" for providing cleaning and toilet paper. Overall, we had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

"Temecula wine region tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 22, 2020
Had a very nice trip to Temecula wine region with 5 star tours company. Don't give it 5 star only because during the booking online they didn't mention the tips to bartenders and the driver were not included in the price of the tour. They only gave this info after I booked the tour, so the price is actually higher that advertised. Overall the tour was very good, on time, informative, excellent lunch in the restaurant at one of the wineries, even though there were just the 2 of us, the tour took place as scheduled, so it was basically a private tour. At the last winery the Calloway we were given a detailed tour of their facilities. Would definitely recommend taking this tour to anybody interested in exotic wines testing. The wines of Temecula are available only by mail or locally.
