    I was very happy with the service provided by Five Star Tours. The bus that I ordered show up to pick up our guests and take them from our hotel to La Jolla Shores. The service was easy to book and the price was very reasonable. The driver showed up on time and was an expert in the area.

    Five Star Tours was contracted for our wedding transportation on July 27, 2013 to provide a 56-passenger charter bus. Instead, only a 29-passenger shuttle was provided (a $150 difference in service). Additionally, the driver got lost and was unable to communicate in English, depending on supervisor via telephone for interpretation services. This caused delays in service necessitating two trips rather than a single trip, with guests arriving late and delaying the events of the night.

    After the wedding, I contacted the company to request a refund of the difference in service paid for and service actually provided. Although Michael verbally agreed to a refund, it seemed that he was not actually going to do anything (despite me calling every other day...not how I wanted to spend the week after my wedding). Eventually, we posted a complaint with the BBB and the refund was granted.

    Save yourself the hassle, use a different company for transportation!
