We had a fantastic time with Albert on the Tijuana food tour. He was a great communicator prior to the outing, crossing the border was easy, and the food was fantastic. We loved experiencing the food through street vendors and meandering through off-the-beaten-path streets. I never felt unsafe and really enjoyed Albert's commentary as we navigated the city. Definitely bring a backpack, hat, small bills/change, and a bottle of water. It can take a while to cross back over to the USA so be prepared to wait in a line (it was about a 1.5-hour wait for us, however, even the line was quite the experience). I wouldn't recommend it for small children but it is great for teens and adults. It totally beats a day at Sea World!

We had a great time with Albert on our Tijuana Street Food Tour on a Sunday evening (4:30-7:30pm). Albert was a great communicator emailing to confirm, telling what we would see, where & when to meet him, to bring water and passports, and to say thank you after the trip. Walking across the border with Albert was easy and quick. There was plenty of food to eat and a wide variety. Watching some of it be made in front of us in small carts or stores was great. We also went to a bakery that had many beautiful baked goods & priced inexpensively. We visited the Mercado Hidalgo market. It was Sunday evening, so many vendors were packing up But but walked through and see fruit, spices, nuts, candy, pinatas, cheeses, etc. If you want more time to explore the markets, select the earlier tours. Bring water, passports, and a bag to carry any goodies you buy. Wear good walking shoes as the walking part of the tour is easy but you need to watch your footing on the sidewalks. Also, use restroom before visit. Albert found a casino for us to go into though our kiddo had to wait outside with Albert. Something to think about if you go with kids. Albert provided some information about Tijuana as we walked. If you want to know more about the area, culture, history, food, I suggest a guide book or a different type of tour. We recommend this tour if you are in the area, like street food, & want something different than food from sit down restaurants. Albert is a kind & patient guide. Wenzel Family

I met Albert Saturday afternoon. Crossing the border was a breeze. After 10 minutes drive on a small bus we started. Food selection was very good, and I have to admit, you'd better come on an empty stomach :-) We had 3 different tacos, ceviche, mangoes and juice. And if on your way/walk you find some sweets, hot chocolates, freshly baked cookies and cones, mixed nuts, tequila shots, etc., then you'll surely will not be able to eat that all. Albert was quite talkative and I learnt a lot about Tijuana from him. It is a shame that a lot of people skip Tijuana trip only because they heard on TV that that is a very dangerous place. To be honest, having seen/worked in Newark, NJ quite frequently I do not find Tijuana any more dangerous. You simply have to know when and where you should not go to. That rule applies to most of the cities anyway, not to Tijuana or Newark only. With an experienced tour guide (like Albert) you'll find a lot of fun and pleasure and you'll learn a lot about Tijuana. I strongly recommend Wild Foodie Tours! Thank you again Albert!

This has got to be the oddest food tour I’ve ever been on. Albert makes no effort to talk to his guests - throughout the whole four hours, he would walk ten paces ahead of the group and barely engage in any conversation at all. When we got our food at each stop, he would stand off to the side (often literally facing away from the group) and eat on his own - and since he’d usually be last to finish, we’d all be waiting up to 5 minutes for him to finish his food while we were done. Everyone in the group commented on this, although Albert didn’t hear of course, because he was 10 feet in front of everyone and ignoring us. He told us nothing about why he’d chosen the vendors or about the dishes we were eating, other than a perfunctory “we’re now going to have some fish tacos Baja style” etc... before going off on his own and not talking to anyone, and then walking off ahead of us again. I didn’t think the food was really all that tasty (I liked one out of maybe 5-6 dishes) and they all from kind of crappy street vendors. It’s hard to feel like you’re getting anything special or unique when Albert declines to tell you anything about the places we visited. I wouldn’t recommend this tour at all - I’ve given it two stars mainly because it seems like Albert is a nice guy who is supposedly passionate about Mexican food... although I don’t know why you would start a food tour company if you don’t really want to eat with, talk to or walk next to your tourists customers.

We had a recent street food tour with Albert. Arranged at short notice and partly as we didn't want to venture in Tijiana unaccompanied. The food was incredible and Albert very knowledgeable and passionate. This is a great way to make a short visit to Tijiana and see something other than the town centre which is mostly awful. Recommended.
