Turista Libre is doing good things trying to get Americans down to Tijuana. I attended the Dia de los Muertos tour. It ended up being a great way to see a couple different neighborhoods of the city. Derek knows his stuff and puts together a nice itinerary of activities. I guess perhaps some of my reasons for not giving the... More

I am the last person who will join a tour or hire a tourguide wherever I go. But after reading through good reviews on tripadvisor and yelp, I made my decision book a 4 hrs tour with Derrik. I was first a little upset that when Derrik was late picking us up at the first place, but soon we found... More

I LOVE this company! Derrik is Awesome!!!! I rented a private tour bus for my birthday with a large group of my friends. It was so wonderful. I cross the border all the time but it was so fun to go with an organized group. It felt very authentic. It was a real city bus! It came with streamers for... More

I really wanted to go to Mexico while my wife attended a conference in SanDiego and my wife found Turista Libre on Trip Advisor: I learned that this is definitely the way to do it. My wife made all the arrangements with Derek via email and online. We booked a 4 hour, completely private tour. I took Trolley from the... More

We enjoyed an awesome tour with Derrik, we felt safe and at ease through out the tour. We visited some markets and picked up some great bargains and keepsakes and encountered no haggling which was fantastic and Derrik was able to communicate for us directly with the shop owners. We visited the beach and walked down to the border which... More

We had a 6 hour private tour with Derrik and Alex on 2 buses. It was a great experience from the street fish tacos, to walking along the boardwalk looking at the street art on the beach, to checking out the local market, to unwinding at La Justina Wine Bar on La Rev with some great cocktails. This is the... More

My family, friends and I took an all-day tour on 8/16. Booked with Derrick, who was very responsive, had great suggestions for our custom tour, and handled the payment. Our guide was Alejandro (Alex). First snafu, which was totally not a problem, but I bring it up for the sake of providing guidance -- our pickup point was on the... More

This glowing review is a bit tardy but nonetheless deserved. We booked a 6 hour private tour with Turista Libre about 3 weeks before the date, in the middle of July. Derrik was prompt in all email communications and answered all of our questions. We wanted to see Tijuana and Rosarito, which is much further south. This was our first... More

Totally cool afternoon/evening with Derek. We really wanted to go to Mexico while over on a conference in SanDiego and this was such a great way to do it. Trolley down to the border and then taken across on foot for a tour including tacos, beach, market and margaritas. Took a while to get back into the US but we... More
