Tijuana Shopping 'Tour' if you can call it that....

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... read more

This impossible situation caused frustration on a rather large scale. Not only could we not get a website, email, or phone to respond, we learned only by calling the world-wide HQ for Gray Line that they no longer service San Diego! Not a good sign for a brand that has long been reliable for travelers world-wide.

I must disagree with the previous reviews. Our tour went smooth and was a great value. They picked us up at 8:00 a.m. at our hotel. We boarded another bus at the harbor and proceeded on a 4 hour tour. We added the harbor tour for $14 and this was definitely worth it. Had time for lunch in Old Town... More

I took the morning tour to Tijuana because "morning departure focuses more on the history and buildings of Tijuana" what a load of rubbish!!! We were dropped at a fence by a beach for 10 minutes and then abandoned in the town for 3 hours, absolutely no history or anything - don't bother, it was a complete waste of time... More

Really disappointed in San Diego four hours Grayline City tour. First of all, to be fair there was a parade going on on this particular day Dec 28, 2011. However that does not justify the bad service we've received on our trip. We called to make a reservation the day before and they told us to meet by The Bay... More

We went on this tour today and it was definitely worth the money. The tour starts at 8:30 am and there is a shuttle service from most hotels in the area, we got picked up from our hotel at 7:15 am and brought to the harbor where we boarded the tour bus. Our guide, David, was HILARIOUS. There truly wasn't... More

Take this 4 hr tour when you first get to SanDiego. It was informative and our guide gave us good info that we used for all week. Our family thought it could have gone about 3 hours though.

We took the gray line tour of the city to get an idea of what we'd like to see later on our visit. Customer service was helpful, and the driver/guide was informative and added lots of humorous comments to keep things light. We could always hear what he was saying, the windows were large enough so we could see what... More

When planning our trip to San Diego, I was pleased to see this Tijuana day trip included on the San Diego Go Card.
