We had an absolutely amazing day with Turista Libre Tours (we took a private tour). It was the best tour I’ve ever taken. They really know all the interesting insider spots in Tijuana not to mention being experts on the culture and history of this...More

Really enjoyed this tour and found it great for the price. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made me feel safe. Not too much in-terms of a “tour” more of a shuttle service for this specific tour but overall worth the money. We saw...More

I did something for the first time during this trip...I took a private tour. Derrik at Turista Libre showed me a vibrant Tijuana, Mexico - one of the most rewarding - and sobering - travel experiences of my life.

Took a private tour with Derrick. Female traveling solo & felt completely safe the entire time. Derrick was a lot of fun/very knowledgeable. Additionally, he was very flexible with what I was interested in. Felt more like wandering around with a friend. Strongly recommend!

There is a McDonalds on the US side of the border where you meet - it's easy to find because the SD Trolley's final stop is right in front of that McDonalds. So find that trolley stop, and you've essentially found the... More
