Best guide ever!

Highly recommend taking this trip. My guide was super knowledgeable about the history and culture. He was very friendly and flexible taking me wherever I asked. I felt safe the entire time and he was able to translate and even help me bargain in the shops!

Fernando was great as a tour guide. We had fun and he was soooo accommodating. It turned into bar crawl which is what we needed and asked him for!! 👍👍

Not what you think

At the last minute our meeting location was changed! It wasn’t explained properly by email that we would need to cross the border yourself! Sergio explained it a lot better to put me in at ease! Our tour guide Tadeo was amazing he was very knowledgeable in the history of Tijuana and overall just amazing! Then to the end of the trip they don’t tell you how long you have to wait to cross the border! We waited in line for 2 hrs to get back into the USA! (Not included in description of tour)! The only reason why I’m even given this 3 stars is because of the tour guide! Other than that I say don’t waste your money ! Too many hidden things your not made aware of!

Sorry for your experience waiting 2 Hours on line to cross back. Commonly there is no line at that time that is why we leave our travelers at that specific time. But at the end it is the most crossing border in the world. Sorry again for your bad end of the experience. On the other hand we really appreciate your review to improve daily, Because of your bad ending even that it is not something that we can manage. We want to give to you and family and friends 20% Off on any tour we have. Just contact directly and we will make it up to you with out any problems. Again sorry for the bad ending on the line, commonly is 15-30 min at that time but now because of COVID we are trying to do our best.
Tijuana - the ugly girl at the bar but the BEST dancer!!

Javier was an excellent guide! He explain what we were going do on the tour, but most importantly also ask us what we wanted to see! I enjoyed the tour, the beers, tequila and tacos were amazing! I would recommend this tour, I never felt unsafe (so don’t believe what you hear). Next year I’m going to Mexico and will probably visit Tijuana again! Thanks Javier!!!
Amazing Tour

This was the first time my wife and I traveled to Tijuana. Our guide, Tadeo Calles, was very knowledgeable and understandable. He showed us around areas we would have never found on our own. We went to the museum and he explain the history. He took us to a small street shop for lunch and the owner was very friendly. He also took us to a local establishment for tequila sampling and craft beers. I highly recommend this trip if you have never been to Tijuana. We had a small group of 3 couples.
