A day in Tijuana.

Great experience Tadeo Calles with Border Tours was amazing, fun and I learned a lot about Tijuana. I really enjoyed seeing the sites and great conversation.
The food and the underground arcade

My guide Tadeo was the best!!!! He met me at the other side of the bridge and had a incredible knowledge of the local culture and history as well as the current scene! Also the food was amazing. He also waited with me to make sure I made it back ok since I was a female traveling solo. 10/10 would recommend and I will be booking with you guys again. THANK YOU!

Great tour with Tadeo
, Oct 2020
Just got back from Tijuana and we had such a good time. Our tour guide Tadeo made the tour both informative and fun. He took us to a local spot for lunch and it was delicious! For first timers we definitely recommend to go with a local.
Fun, to the point and good pace

Tadeo is the best

I really enjoyed my tour. My guide was Tadeo, I highly recommend him. He is really patient, asks and answers questions thoughtfully, doesn’t rush the tour at all. I had a quality tour with Tadeo.

Fernando was our tour guide he did an amazing job, he taught us a lot about Tijuana he was very knowledgeable and knew all the cool places to take us. The food stops we went to had great tacos, beer drinks etc. We definitely had an experience! We would recommend our friends and family try it out.

Very disappointed when booking the tour they did not mention anything about having to have a passport and because it was a last minute thing we decided to do I could not cancel before 24 hours I was able to get 40 % of my money back

Sorry for the inconvenient, to cross to another country there is a passport needed, commonly we ask to US citizens to at least have birth certificate and ID, because of COVID this last option that regularly just apply for US Citizens, will not work for the moment as common. It will be depending on the Mexican customs at the moment. We are sorry but we have this information everywhere. Because the booking was made at las minute and it was cancel at last minute too. Our policy is clear no refunds at all. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we did our best to return at least part of the payment because we have a record you try to contact us before hand, that was the only why we where able to give a refund of 40%. Sorry again that this did not work for you as expected.

Tadeo was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed his tour. He answered all our questions and informed us of historical aspects of Tijuana including the burro-zebra. Would recommend and take his tour Again! Very friendly.

Amazing Experience

I had a great time in Mexico it was way safer than I expected. Thanks to Humberto for the amazing tour, it was a great way to learn about Mexico's history. He was on time, very professional and knowledgable and most importantly he treated us like friends. If you're interested in learning about Mexico's history, I highly recommend the tour. I looooved the Tacos.
