Every year within Urban Land Institute (ULI) I organize a day trip to Tijuana to present opportunities to the Young Leaders of our San Diego/Tijuana chapter. Derrik and crew did a great job keeping us on schedule and organized. Additionally he shared insight about the city, it's growth and happening things as well. I would highly recommend Turista Libre for... More

Had a great time during the Luche Libre trip on 8-19. Tijuana will always have a certain level of "sketchiness" for an inexperienced american but this trip does a great job of reducing the risk and making you feel comfortable. Just be smart, listen to the advice of the tour guide and stick with the group and you're good to... More

I am fairly new to San Diego and while I am very used to traveling to the Yucatan side of Mexico, traveling TJ-side is new to me. I had friends coming to town who wanted to go to TJ and I wanted to be sure they saw more than just Avenida Revolución. So I turned to Yelp and found Turista... More

As a woman traveling alone to Tijuana I was a little nervous but I had no reason to worry. Alejandro had in depth knowledge of the area and I felt completely safe the entire time. He took me to a huge outdoor market which was fascinating (now I know why Mexican food is so good), the beaches area, some shopping... More

This is one of the very best tours we have experienced. Derrik is passionate about showing visitors the real Tijuana and made our whole day one we will never forget. The food, drinks, ice cream, water was a great addition and we learned a great deal about this somewhat confused! city. Just crossing the border on foot added to the... More

Myself, my mother and my sister took a private tour last summer with Alex and I can't imagine having done it any other way. He met us just after the border in Tijuana at the pedestrian bridge and then we went to his car to begin our journey. He took us to a modern building where we were able to... More

We did the lucha libre tour and it was FANTASTIC. We stopped at a lucha libre shop, had authentic tacos and beer and Derrik did a great job answering all our questions about wrestling, Tijuana, and Mexico.

I took the taco tour in early June, 2016. It was a great experience - I have been to Tijuana a few times, but always stuck with Revolucion Ave because I just didn't know any better. I know TJ is becoming a better destination, and I thought this tour would be a good first step into seeing other parts of... More

My husband and I had an amazing time on the Tijuana Brewery Hop tour with Derrik. We were initially unsure what to expect, but we had a great experience - the border process went smoothly, we felt safe throughout the trip, and the beer and tacos were fantastic. We visited several breweries including, Cerveceria Insurgente, Baja Brew Labs and Border... More

My husband and I took a private tour with Alejandro and it was fantastic. We went to the open air market where we tried a tamale and some good coffee drinks, then we went to the beach where the border fence goes into the ocean. It was beautiful and the people all around looked like they were having a great... More
