Fun Day in Tijuana!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Tadeo was a fantastic tour guide! We went to nice places we definitely wouldn’t have found on our own. The city was so beautiful & lively. I would recommend exchanging some cash for pesos before your trip, so you’re not limited to buying from vendors that accept USD/card. Food was amazing 😋 & the tequila tasting was better than I expected.

Tadeo was simply amazing. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. He gave us the best tour we could have expected. It felt more like a private tour. We saw all the highlights of the areas he took us to. We ate, shopped, and took lots of photos.

I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends.

Great job!

Locally in-tuned tour
Sep 2021
The success of this tour is due to rich-experienced tour guides. It was very comfortable just to walk around instead of being crowded on a bus for a city tour. The spots visited have their own unique charm as I gained experience from the tour; I would gladly do this again.

Become like a local in Tijuana!
Aug 2021
The Crossing the Borders tour to Tijuana was a great experience! Our tour guide, Victor, was professional and very knowledgeable. I learned about the history of Tijuana and the rest of Mexico. He also showed us the popular local hangouts. I'm glad I selected this tour and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Tadeo was the best! My sis and I decided to do this tour and we had to meet Tadeo in Mexico after crossing the border by foot - to be honest, we were scared but the instructions from Fernando was very clear and it was easy to get thru the border. Plus we met so many cool people during this tour and sooo glad we did this. I would recommend to anyone interested in checking out TJ and trying good food/drinks! Thanks Tadeo~

Don’t trust Border Tours
Jul 2021 • Couples
I bought the shared walking day tour to Tijuana for $29 from BORDER TOURS. Fernando called and asked me to pay $58. He said he’d send me a confirmation email. I didn’t get any. Then I cancelled the booking. But didn’t hear back from Fernando or the company. My numerous atttempts to reach them to cancel failed. Finally I approached my credit card company to dispute the charges. I’m writing here to warn people.

I took the Tijuana Local Walking Tour from San Diego
and it was a great experience! Both Tadeo and Fernando are absolutely amazing. They are very passionate and knowledgeable about places and their history. The tour included tacos, margaritas and tequila tasting. It was very well planned and we saw all the landmarks of Tijuana.
I strongly recommend this tour. It was worth every minute!
