Description

from The Grand Baja Lobster 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.

"Safari Park was amazing, Five Stars service was not."

Tour bus arrived to pick us up at our hotel about 30 minutes late so we had a bit less time at the Safari Park. On the ride home, the driver clipped something, I assume was another card side view mirror and kept going. Eek! She said it was only her mirror that got hurt but you could see fragments bouncing in the road when we looked behind the vehicle. The driver also kept hitting the median bumps in the freeway and seemed to have trouble keeping the van straight. The driver was pleasant but definitely not someone who should be responsible for a van full of people.

"The most perfect day trip ever!"

I took the Grand Baja Tour last week. I decided to go by myself so I thought that a guided tour trip would be awesome. I called to make sure that a minimum of 5 people were booked because they will reschedule if it is less than 5 people. There was about 8 of us on the tour and then our tour guide Juan. Juan was so awesome. He knows his way in TJ and he was great at telling us all sorts of facts. The lunch was amazing and it was off of the beach. We were able to look around shops at every stop we went to. We had time on the beach and to order drinks and relax. I felt very safe on this day tour and also met some friends on the tour as well! I totally suggest this tour if you’re gonna solo or with a group. Best money’s worth. I couldn’t of imagined it going more smoothly.

Having never been to San Diego I wanted a tour to show me a little bit of everything...this one checked all of the boxes and in a very comfortable van as well. Our driver was very informative, and stuck to schedule...even dropped us off at our hotel.

"Absolutely awful!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed October 28, 2019 NEW
This tour company needs to go back and rename themselves half a star tours. There were 4 fires occurring the night before my tour. They refused to reschedule, without adding an extra $100. They were 30 minutes late to begin the tour, which caused us to miss the winery tour. Lunch is not included as they claim it is, and the restaurant refused to divide our bill by party. When we arrived to the second winery, they were unable to pay for our tastings because the company credit card was maxed out according to our guide. Absolutely the most awful experience from an American company. I thought that I would feel safe using an American company to travel to Mexico. I was wrong. You’re better off staying in Ensenada and hiring a driver to take you to the wineries.

"Craft Brewery Tour in San Diego"

Reviewed October 25, 2019 NEW
Ray was a really excellent Tour Guide. Amazing eye colour too! The breweries were interesting to say the least. I learned so much about brewing beer and enjoyed drinking it at the three breweries. The lunch at the end was good also. Took several hours to cover it all and well worth it. Ray told us about some other Five Star Tours that we hope to take in the future.
