They have me a meeting place once I got there your guide was not there. Got a phone call from tour guide saying go ahead and cross the border and meet me in TJ. Cancelled tour and requested a refund.
Best time in Mexico, Great tour guide

Our host,Alex, was exceptional! The lunch at Tomo was delicious. The tour was thorough and at the end I couldn’t wait to go back. We definitely were able to good a good feel for Tiquana. If you are thinking about going, do it. You won’t regret it.
Great tour!

I really enjoyed this tour. Víctor was a great tour guide showing us some great sights giving a taster of Mexico and Tijuana. It was very interesting to see some of the history and how it has changed. Víctor was very knowledgable and we got to try some Mexican food in Mexico! I would definitely recommend this tour to others and I will definitely come back!
Gregorio and Tadeo were awesome!

Fun in Tijuana

Really great guides, Tadeo and Gregorio! They were friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. They did not provide water, so make sure you bring some or buy some there. The food was excellent and learning the history of Tijuana was interesting and fun. We had a great day!

Perfect experience- perfect guiding.- misleading info on the net.
, Jul 2022
The culture just on the other side of US to be so different and fantastic. The guide was excellent. The meeting point was changed to Mexico side and we didn’t get that info so we waited 30 minutes in front of McDonald’s before we got contacted. That’s the only negative thing. Change the meeting point on your homepage or keep to the original.
Great tour

Fun in Tijuana!
, Jul 2022
We were on vacation in San Diego and wanted to see Tijuana but we were very nervous about going alone. This tour made you feel very safe we had no worries once we were with our group. Tadeo and his co tour guide were so nice and very knowledgeable. It was fun meeting and getting to know others in the group.

Victor and Georgia were engaging and knowledgeable. It would have been preferable for us to have been initially advised to make the meeting place on the Mexican side of the border rather than at McDonald’s on the USA side. It was easy for me to get across the border unaccompanied and would have avoided the delays associated with the last minute change in plans to relocate the meeting point from McDonald’s to a place across the border in Tijuana (in Mexico).

The Best Food/Walking Tour

Our tour guide Humberto was great! We had a small group and it made it more enjoyable. Humberto made sure to explain what to expect every step of the tour. And, the quesadillas and margarita were very delicious.

Mateo was very nice and Alex as well. We have time to walk downtown Tijuana, eat some good food, drink tequila and get some souvenir. We all had a great time.

Better than what we expected. Tadeo and Alex are a dream team. I highly recommend them. The food was amazing, tequila tasting was great and shopping time they gave us. We felt safe with them. They were very attentive with us and our requests.
Thank you, Gregorio. Tijuana Tour

Wonderful thank you Gregorio. The family loved the tour. Thank you for the family memories. You walk across the border and meet the tour guide. It’s very easy and stress free due to constant contact and guidance of your guide.
Short Trip to Tijuana’s

Day walk across Mexican border
, Jul 2022
Awesome day trip to Tijuana. There were 6 of us plus our tour guide… Humberto. Humberto walked us around the city centre of Tijuana and we felt safe 100% of the time. It’s a great city with many nice people. The food and alcohol we ate was fantastic. Thank you Humberto for the great experience. We will be back to visit Mexico again soon.
Enjoying the city of Tijuana with family!
, Jun 2022
Tadeo was our tour guide and he did an excellent job with the history and sharing information about the city with our group. Since the group was so large we also had a second guide, Alex and he made sure the rear of the group didn’t get lost. I felt safe and secure with these guys. The walk to get across the border is long but definitely worth it.
