We signed up for a half-day taco tour as an incentive to get back across the border after years of negative press about violence and lots of coverage of the boom in Tijuana's cultural, arts and food scene. First, making a reservation was easy and the company provides lots of info on meeting them just before crossing the border. Group... More

I took a private half-day tour of Tijuana. My guide was Alejandro and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the city and I got to see many sights off the beaten path. I would highly recommend them. Just make sure you leave a little extra time to coordinate the tour. They don't have a US phone number so... More

We've just returned from our tour with Derrick...wow! It was great. Seriously, if you want to go to Tijuna, don't pick any other company. Derrick is flexible, knowledgeable and has a high respect for the native culture and the people. He went out of his way to make sure our party of 5 were happy and comfortable. We loved our... More

6 of us just came back spending most of a day with Derrick the owner for a tour of Tijuana. Was a surprise, how much we enjoyed it, mostly because of Derrick the owner. He really enjoys what he does, very personable, and shows you a part of Tijuana you would never find on your own. Well worth the $... More

Seeking a Tijuana day trip for our (grown) family we were attracted by Turista Libre's "like a local" philosophy & efforts to find alternatives to the stereotypical attractions. Due to time constraints we chose the group "Brewery Hop' tour rather than a custom excursion, which we'd still like to try one day. It included 2 small breweries and one brew... More

I've been on two Turista Libre tours. One private tour down to Valle de Guadalupe in June 2014, and one group Taco tour in December 2015. Derrik took us to Valle de Guadalupe, which was simply magical. Going here is almost like going back into time, where the focus is on the wine and the cultivation of grapes (vs. the... More

Bar none the worst tour we have ever taken. They start 1h20m late, the guide never introduced himself nor did he say One word about Tijuana, where we were going or anything. We did the Dia de Los Muertos tour and no one ever explained what it is, why it is celebrated, who celebrates it, etc. We were taken to... More

I recently got married in San Diego and I hired Turista Libre Tijuana Tours for a Tijuana trip with some of our friends that attended the wedding. Turista Libre Tijuana Tours was amazing! After crossing the US-Mexico border, we met the Tour bus which was very easy. We then went from one location to another and got an opportunity to... More
