I can't recommend Turista Libre and Derrik enough. I booked a 4 hour tour for my wife and me and Derrik and I worked out the details easily via email. We ended up visiting a market and loved pouring over the fruits, spices and vegetables. We spent some time on the beach just south of the US-Mexico border and had... More

This is an AWESOME TOUR. Derrik is an awesome guide. He's knowledgeable and approachable. He met us on the US side and we all walked over the bridge together. The walk isn't too bad or too far. The school bus was waiting for us on the other side. Being able to stop and eat at places where we wouldn't even... More

We were staying in San Diego for a week long business convention. We had always wanted to visit Tijuana but this was my first opportunity. My wife had toured Tijuana many years ago. We learned about this tour on Trip Advisor. So we contacted them on very short notice requesting a tour for the very next day. Derrick responded quickly... More

Yesterday we took 30 Spanish students to Tijuana on a Taco Tour organized by Turista Libre. From the very beginning, Derrik was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was organized, prompt, on top of everything, always a step ahead and just a really nice and fun guy. On the day of the event he showed up on time, had... More

We won on a bid at a fund raiser. Weren"t sure what to expect. But it was great fun and got to try taco stands and restaurants all over the city.Food was very tasty and fresh. We were greeted by a very handsome and knowledgeable guide named Derrik who knew his way around Tijuana.

Derrik is an incredible tour guide! My boss and I were in San Diego for a work trip and being two foodies, we wanted to explore the local culinary scene in Tijuana with an interest in off the beaten path, local "secrets." Turista Libre as a company was very professional, easy to communicate with, and booking was a breeze. We... More

Everything about Turista Libre Tijuana Tours is top notch fun! Blew my expectations out of the water. I was lucky enough to attend the Tijuana Toros Baseball Tour, which was kicked off with gourmet food trucks and beer garden. Derrik highly recommended these amazing bacon sausages that is now hands down my favorite "hot dog" I've ever had! The bus... More

Wonderful experience! We booked a 4 hour private tour on short notice and was accommodated within 24 hours of our request. The logistics of reserving the tour, the payment method, and the actual implementation of the tour were all carried out with the utmost professionalism...yada yada yada. But this was not the best part of the tour nor the reason... More

My wife & I joined Derrik & the group for the adventure following our tour with him & others a few month's back to the Tijuana water park. He does a great job keeping it local and safe while providing great history & insight in to the culture. I highly recommend Turista Libre to anybody who wants to see the... More

We had been to Tj about 15 years ago. Just a quick bus ride down from sd and back, We were not impressed since it was mostly bars and strip clubs This time we decided to try something different and do a more in depth tour. We did the private tour and found it informational and fun. We got to... More
