Tijuana day trip

Our guide Tadeo was Amazing. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. My favorite parts of the tour were the street food (including the grasshoppers) and the markets. He made sure we were able to do everything we wanted and gave us options. Amazing tour.
Great tour!!

Humberto was our tour guide and like clock work he texted us on time and directed us on exactly what we needed to do to cross the boarder and meet him on the Mexico side. His tour was fantastic and full of history and we never felt unsafe once! Thank you Humberto for showing us a wonderful day in your city and helping us to learn about and see TIajana through different eyes!
Loved it!

Cultural experience of a lifetime

We met Tadeo just past the border check in station. From thay point on it was one of the nost amazing experiences we had on our trip. I did not go expexting a history less but Tadeo privided just that! He knew the city very well as well as its history. We threw many questions at him and he was able to answer in detail. He loves the city and that made the experience that much better. Be ready to walk. Plenty of street art to see people to interact with and historical sites. It was also very safe and the locals were very friendly. I would definitely book anoter trip with Tadeo
Family fun and memorable times

Everything was great from start to finish. The reason that I say this is because Gregorio, the tour guide, made us feel comfortable and secure. He knew the area well and was knowledgeable of the history of Tijuana. Also, we where able to visit several shops and purchased souvenirs that will remind us of the family fun we had. The food was great, and the people where amazing. This is definetely a do-over. Thank you.
Awesome Half day Tijuana Trip

Our guide, Humberto, was wonderful. He gave us a personal experience as he lived in Tijuana. We walked through downtown, stopped at a bakery, had a beer flight, wonderful authentic tacos, and tequila tasting! He gave us time to stop, shop and purchase souvenirs. I highly recommend the tour.
Lost our $$

My husband and I learned last minute we forgot our passports back home and couldn’t get a refund. We lost the entire cost and Viator was unwilling to refund any part of our full payment. It was probably meant to be this way since our tour guide was supposed to meet us in the US side and we received a message that he would not be able to meet us on the US side that he would wait on the Mexico side which didn’t give me a good feel. Oh well. Maybe NEVER will I book with this company again. :)

Hi sorry for the inconvenient , but as booked 10 hours before we send the temporary meetup change this because of COVID. In the case of not having your passports, and knowing at last minute , this is not our responsibility and all arrangements are done already, local guide and places to visit we can't cancel any of this at the same day. Because they are already payed. Sorry that you missed your money for not bringing your passports***. We invite you to bring passports to cross an international border this is most recommended on any international border. And if you give the opportunity again we can give an extra 25% on any tour for you or your family and friends from total. ***If you are a US Citizen you might be able to just cross with an ID, but this depends on the customs you meet, and of course this is on your own discretion this is why we recommend to bring passport.
