Tadeo Calles, our guide, was great! Double thumbs up 👍👍 he was very knowledgeable about the town. He took us to lunch where we enjoyed the best tacos! I would recommend him for a tour around Tijuana. He made sure we got what we wanted out of the tour. Even made sure we weren’t cheated by the vendors. Next time we’re out this way we would definitely want him to take us for another tour around a different area to see. We felt safe at all times as well.

Tadeo was an amazing tourguide! He tailors the guide to your taste, you like Tequila? hes got you, You like Margaritas? Hes got you, Tacos? Blankets? Overall the Tour was very safe, I had my doubts about being a foreigner in a new country. He will make sure the venders don't bother you if you don't want. We took the bus and some ubers walking was minimal.

We had such a wonderful time in Tijuana with our tour guide Tadeo. Tadeo was knowledgeable about the Mexican culture. He took us to do Tequila sampling, we had authentic Tacos for lunch (provided my the tour guide) and we also stopped for souvenirs along the way. We where kind of hesitant about this tour at first because of covid and rumors around Tijuana but trust me, it was fun and safe . They even provided hand sanitizer and water along the tour . I will definitely be back soon and next time bring my children as well so that they can also learn about the Mexican culture as we did. We also met some other great couples who also toured with us from other states...

Tadeo was an excellent tour guide who thoughtfully selected great places to eat/drink, see the best wall art, see some of the interesting/historical/occasionally seedy hotels market and other establishments. You can tell he really cares about his job and works to understand what he’s sharing. The tour can also be highly tailored. Would probably have gotten lost or not enjoyed Tijuana nearly as much without Tadeo’s help

Our tour guide Humberto was fabulous!! It was only 2 of us so he took us to wherever we wanted. We wanted to see what the real life of Mexico was like. We ate at a traditional Mexican restaurant. La Cabana. Good food, great hospitality. Crossing the border was super cool and very safe. I highly recommend this tour.
