The full experience of TJ in 4 hours

I went on this tour by myself and felt totally safe, even when I needed to cross the border by myself to meet our guide due to Covid restrictions. We got to see and experience all different parts of TJ from the Catholic church to drinks on a rooftop bar to eating food at a local restaurant. Four hours felt like a good amount of time to get a full experience of the city. Our guide was also really helpful in giving us info on how to cross back over into the U.S.

The tour guide met us on the Mexico side and was a little difficult to find. However, he called us personally to make sure we found him which was a huge help! The walk was interesting and informational. We had a great lunch, tequila taste testing, and time for shopping.

I booked this tour for myself and two friends. We all received different levels of communication. If we weren't together I don't think we would have made it to the meeting location. Once on the tour our guide wasn't engaging. We decided to do our own thing.

Great way to explore Tijuana!

Victor was an excellent guide. He has a college education from both Mexico and US so he’s familiar with customs and traditions of both. It was an informative, interesting, yummy, and safe tour of downtown Tijuana. Our 13 year old loved the tour too. We recommend the quesadillas! Tips: Plan extra time to figure out where to park and find the border crossing especially during Covid restrictions when US citizens can cross the border but our Mexican guide cannot. Bathrooms on the US side require 2 quarters. Bring dollar bills to buy souvenirs and additional treats or food- Shops accept pesos and dollars but usually only have change in pesos.

E X C E E D E D expectations by far. Having been on guided tours from London to Sydney to Paris, I was hoping for mediocre. This tour holds its own with all others. Because of COVID, we were told to cross in Mexico to meet our guide. We crossed, but I was worried we’d fallen for a scam. Minutes later our corkscrew-haired guide showed up and pulled out the stops. His knowledge shone, his history major put to great use. He was watchful and protective yet fun. Highly recommend.

We loved our tour! We met Humberto and Tadeo for the tour while we were vacationing in San Diego. This tour exceeded our expectations and it was great to learn so much about Tijuana! We hope to be back again someday!

Great trip well worth the money! Tadeo, our local tour guide, was phenomenal. He was very knowledgeable about Tijuana and I learned a lot. But the best part was how much fun it was! Highlights: - Free tequila tasting - Delicious + huge free margarita - Free tacos (Shrimp and fish because everyone in our tour wanted seafood) - Tried traditional cheese and crickets for free! - Very flexible and accommodating tour guide I would 100% do this tour again with the amazing Tadeo!
