Venture across the border

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Victor. He was pleasant and tried very hard to please everyone throughout. We got a chance to quell our fears about the border and COVID travel. Tried authentic Mexican food, got a chance to shop, tasted tequila and learned about the history of Tijuana. We will feel more comfortable in the future to come on our own. I’m glad we went and I would recommend to other’s especially if you are unsure.

Authentic Tijuana experience!

It makes sense for the guide to meet you on the Mexico side of the border. The wait to get back into America is very long, so to avoid that meet him on the Mexico side. We crossed the border and waited for maybe 5 minutes. Victor introduced himself to us and we waited for another person going on the guided tour for 3 or 4 minutes. Victor was fantastic. He got us on a shuttle downtown, explained what was going on, and got us on a shuttle back to the border. He also walks you right to the check-in to get back into America before he says good-bye. You need to have comfortable walking shoes, because he takes you around the city, checking everything out. He shares so much history and local information. He takes care of everything, lunch, water, and whatever you might want to try. He is very accommodating. We can't wait to do it again. The market area was amazing. The cathedral was an experience that needs to be seen in person. The authentic homemade tacos. And last but not least, tasting local tequila. Ask for Victor! He is such a great guy.

Downtown Tijuana was bustling with action. Humberto was our tour guide. He was very patient with us as to our questions, and many stops along the way. This is a tour that all should consider if traveling to Tijuana.

A Total Nightmare

It was an absolutely terrible nightmare. We didn’t get to join the tour at all as the tour guide texted us at the last minute for a change of meeting place to the Mexico border instead of in front of McDonald’s where we were waiting for more than an hour. He did not call us although he missed two tourists. We rushed to the Mexico border at 1:10pm and tried to text and call him numerous times trying to find out where we could meet up and connect with the tour but did not get any response. We ended up turning around and waited two hours in line to get back to the U.S. side since we didn’t know where to go. We also paid $24 for parking for a totally wasted vacation day which we had looked forward to. The company was so irresponsible, irresponsive, and their client service was totally unacceptable.
