Description

from Baja Mexico Grand Tour
The Grand Baja Tour is also known as the "Baja Lobster Tour" and operates every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturdays.

In our Baja Mexico Grand Tour, your adventure begins as we cross into Mexico and visit Tijuana, the fourth largest city in Mexico.

We will go on a cultural sightseeing tour of the area with stops at the Cultural Center, the Tijuana Bullring, the Tijuana Zoo, the Tijuana Tower and then time for some shopping along Avenida Revolution. This street is the main shopping Mecca south of the border with more than 400 different types of shops that will entice you to bargain like the locals for your Mexican curios.

Then it's off to Puerto Nuevo Lobster Village, once a small fisherman town, it is now home to over 50 different restaurants offering the specialty of the house, Puerto Nuevo style lobster meals. This lobster meal is a Pacific Ocean Lobster deep fried to perfection, served with unlimited rice, beans, and a welcome Margarita!

After lunch (included) enjoy some time to relax along the Pacific Ocean as Mariachis serenade you.

After this memorial experience, we will travel to Rosarito Beach which was once the Mexican Hollywood during the 1920's. Now it is a blooming beachside community with endless opportunities to visit the beach, go horseback riding or ATV riding along the sandy beaches.

After Rosarito Beach, we'll travel back to San Diego on a scenic road.

"worst trip ever"
August 2018
10 hours in a SeaWorld shuttle van, could not see well out windows , sitting in super small sets 3 across. The driver/ tour guide spent much of his time on his phone talking and texting while driving. When we got to various stops we let out and were on our own, no tours were offered. Very expensive tour that had no guide or even recommendations. The lunch was the best part, but once again the driver let us out and disappear until it was time to get back in the van.

"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.

"FIVE STAR TOURS MADE MY BIRTHDAY A SPECTACULAR ONE"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 04, 2020
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.
