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

Tijuana has changed a lot in the past 2 decades, (that I've witnessed), it's more than just partying at the bar/clubs on Avenida Revolucion. It's a young city that offers much of what you would expect from a large metropolitan city; delicious food, local customs, arts and entertainment. Turista Libre is one of the best ways to see the city,... More

I decided to book a tour with this business based on the many positive reviews here on TripAdvisor, and I can safely concur with them all. Together with my wife and our young daughter we wanted to see a little bit of Tijuana as a day trip from San Diego. Derrik met us on the USA side of the border,... More

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

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.
