great tour, only get to see the town for 2-3 hrs but thats good enough for me
Our day trip to Tijuana was fantastic and far better than we expected!! Our tour guide Mike was very entertaining and knowledgeable, he really made the trip! Mike showed us plenty of the local color as well as the more touristy areas. He also introduced us to some of the local merchants who were very nice and really helpful. We never felt like we were being pressured to buy something. I highly recommend this trip! It's a great way to spend a fun afternoon! Julia LA
Easy simple trip to enjoy an afternoon in Tijuana! Mike is friendly and knowledgeable of the city's history. Pleasant day trip. I would recommend this tour to others
Fantastic trip with the Best tourguide you could imagine
Mike was great, he managed tour expectations very well - no glossing over life realities over the border. Under US$4 for full serve of ceviche and fish tacos, the contrast between Tijuana and San Diego is mind boggling! Our border wait back into States was only an hour, best to go mid-week.

I had heard different things about Tijuana, but my brother had been down a few years ago and said I should see it. I'm really glad I did. I decided to do a tour instead of walking across, because I heard that the wait times in the pedestrian line could take 2 hours to get through the border. Once again I'm glad I did. For starters Mike, the guide was great. Thanks Mike!! He has been doing tours for over 10 years, and has friends, connections, and a good handle on the how and why of Mexico and its people. The advantage of a tour verses the selfie, was hearing about the people and the history of Mexico on the way there. Also Mike will show you places in TJ you wont see on your own, as well as recomendatons on buying tacos and other things. We had about 2 hours on our own to shop and eat, which is enough for your basic tourist. So should you go to TJ??? If you have any intrest in coulture, and seeing the real Mexico for yourself, yes. If you like operating and exploring on your own, yes!!! If lots of people and a lot of noise bother you, not so much. But eather way if you go with this tour, your will be taken care of!!!! Dont miss the chance.
Mike! Awesome tour guide This is the best way to visit Tijuana from California!
Wasn't sure what to expect. Had heard lots of different stories about going to Tijuana. Our tour was fantastic. Michael our guide and bus driver was the best. Booked through Viator and scenic tours was the company they used. We were all very impressed.
Mike was our amazing guide! He was personable, knowledgeable, and entertaining. He asked us questions to get to know us and catered the tour to our interests. Getting into TJ took 5min. Mike drove us around the city, explaining the different neighborhoods, history, and where it was safe to go or not. He encouraged us to stray off the beaten tourist path to see real Mexico and gave us the confidence to try it. Thankfully, that's what we did. We found the BEST tacos we've ever had for 7 pesos each at a random little shop, then a little bakery and picked up some yummy sweet bread. We loved walking through the streets and going into shops that the locals went to. It was a great experience and made us want to visit TJ again! We didn't feel unsafe once, even after dark. Mike was right, Tijuana is a safe place for tourists again. Highly recommended! In fact, we had such a great trip we didn't mind the 3hr trip back to San Diego 2hrs waiting in the bus at customs. So glad we didn't drive or trolley for this first trip to TJ.
