Such an amazing, educational, safe, enlightening, easy, smile generating experience! Derrick and his team reveal and embrace the heart and soul of the city; they truly are some of the finest ambassadors TJ (and all of Mexico) could ever hope for! Besos amigos; Turista Libre deserves 10 stars!

derrik rules. Great art. Great food. Great fun. One of the best days of my life. Check when he does tacos and beer/mescal. But you must see the 65 foot statue that Armando created.

Had a great time on the taco tour. First stop was fish tacos, second stop steak tacos (with amazing salsas) and third was octopus and shrimp. Some of the best tacos I've had in a while and got to actually see some of the different neighborhoods of TJ. It's a cool experience to go beyond the Avenida Revolucion and all... More

Loved the brewery tour! A definite highlight was the gastropark. Am excited to go on more in the future.

Really informative and intriguing. Best tacos ever, interesting market visit and seeing the border fence was fascinating. The only caveat is that the Mexico to USA border can take a long time to go back through. Other than that, it was superb.

Hi--just came back from my second excursion with Derrik, and I have to say he runs a top notch operation. Always fun, always safe, and a great way to see more of what Baja California has to offer. Can't wait for my next one in January!

We set up a private all-day tacos/beer/market tour for our office, and it was great. Turista Libre greeted us with a cooler filled with beers and waters, took us to really cool spots, and was super flexible with planning so that our vegetarians were accommodated and we got to see good stuff in TJ based on our interests. It was... More

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
