Tadeo got us across the border effectively and we had a great walk. He is very knowledgeable and friendly and easy to be around. I have been to TJ a few times before but going with Tadeo was more fun. Highly recommended.

Terrible experience

I didn't get to have the experience, we had an emergency and tried to contact someone to reschedule, but did not hear back from the local tour company. The company Viator tried to help, but Border Tours is terrible in regards to any communication. Phone numbers either ring or tell you to text and do not get answered. I would give this a 0 if I could

An Authentic Premium Experience!

Tadeo was our host for the day and he proved to be an excellent guide, our itinerary was packed with fun activities and delivered efficiently. Tadeo began by meeting us on the Mexican side of the border and delivered a charming introduction, he then guided us to Revolucion Street and began sharing the history of Tijuana with real warmth and care, any questions about the town were answered with a real breadth of knowledge. Tadeo guided us to a craft beer bar initially where we could also examine an art gallery, it was good fun! Tadeo then showed us around the rest of the street, we went through the markets, enjoyed street food, quesadillas from a local restaurant for lunch and 40 minutes of self exploration around the town! The tour was rounded off with tequila tasting before Tadeo led us back to the border. Overall the experience was exhilarating and lots of fun, Tadeo was an excellent host and I highly recommend booking this tour!

Great Local Guide and Excellent Value

We were astounded by the terrific tour that our group of 6 received for a total of $222 + tip. Our guide Alex, a long-time Tijuana resident, helped us see that the city doesn't deserve its sketchy reputation. In addition to touring the vibrant downtown area, we learned about the city's history, ate some terrific authentic Mexican food, sampled some great Tequila and locally-brewed beer (all of which were, as advertised, not included in the tour price), while being steered clear of the parts of town that are less safe for tourists. Alex was quite responsive to our questions and preferences, and extremely helpful with translation when needed, resulting in a most enjoyable and enlightening first-time visit to Tijuana.

DO NOT BE AFRAID TO TOUR TIJUANA. Our tour group was nervous about the visit but the only sketchy part was the McDonald's on the US side. They will ask you to come across & meet them on the Mexican side. This my cause concern but don’t fret your guide should be waiting on the other side. I’d 100% recommend Border Tours. Our guide, Gregorio (aka 6’6) was amazing! He was knowledgeable, funny & made us all feel at ease. Nothing but a good time!!!

Alex & Victor were fantastic tour guides! Super accommodating and even remembered that I was was interested in knowing more about the local craft beer scene. They even gave me a few tips on how to navigate my way around for the next time. Would highly recommend this tour! They were very knowledgeable about the area and very personable!

We had a great tour with Alex! He was amazing. Instructions for meeting were clear and he was waiting for us just across the border. Our tour ended up just being my husband and myself and Alex was very respectful of what we wanted to do and see. He took us to some nice spots off the beaten path and we had a great day.

A Casual tour of Tijuana
Sarah_T

Tour included a trip to a museum, authentic Mexican quesadillas, and a tequila tasting. There was also some free time to shop! Tadeo was a great tour guide. He was really knowledgeable about the history of Tijuana as well as different locations around the city. The tour was about 4.5 hours long, which I thought was the perfect length.
