A Fabulous Day Out in Mexico
Debra_C, Jan 2024
What an amazing day out to Mexico's culture, from tacos, markets, interesting drinks, margaritas and tequila. We would have never found or adventured to the areas we were taken by Tadeo, he was absolutely wonderful.
**Headline: Taco Bliss in Tijuana with Tadeo! 🌮🌟**

Hey fellow adventurers! Just had the most epic Tijuana tour with Viator's "Tacos Tuesday Hop to Tijuana," led by the incredible guide Tadeo. 🚌✨ Pros: 1. **Personalized Touch:** Tadeo's morning text was a game-changer. It set the tone for a personalized experience, making us feel like VIP taco enthusiasts. 2. **Smooth Border Crossing:** Seamless border navigation made the start hassle-free. No unnecessary delays – just straight to taco paradise! 3. **Exceptional Tacos:** Let's talk about those tacos! 👌 From street stalls to hidden gems, Tadeo unveiled a world of flavors that blew our taste buds away. 4. **Rain or Shine Adventure:** Despite a bit of rain, Tadeo's enthusiasm never waned. His positivity turned potential downsides into memorable highlights. Cons: 1. **Weather Roulette:** The only hiccup was the unpredictable weather, but hey, Tadeo can't control the clouds! Pack that parka or umbrella just in case. Comparisons: Compared to other tours, "Tacos Tuesday Hop to Tijuana" stands out for its personal touch. Tadeo's passion and knowledge elevate the experience beyond just tacos – it's a cultural immersion. Final Verdict: If you're a taco lover seeking an adventure that's equal parts delicious and informative, this tour with Tadeo is a must! Rain or shine, you're in for a treat. 🌧️☀️ Happy travels and even happier tacos! 🌎🌮🤠
Not our first rodeo and not our last
Maybelle_S, Jan 2024
A few in our group have been to Tijuana by walking across the boarder multiple times and are familiar enough with the process. However; if this is your first time, I do think there could be a little more direction provided ahead of time of what to expect when entering into Mexico and more importantly when exiting. The tour itself was phenomenal and our guide Humberto demonstrated an impressive grasp of Tijuana’s unique cultural influences on traditional Mexican cuisine and its rich yet young history. We enjoyed his company and look forward to more experiences with him. Highlight of the tour was visiting the plaza by City Hall (a non tourist area) if you go I highly suggest going with the Milanesa- load that sucker up with all the toppings and choke it down with the pinapple water 😋
Melaine_L, Jan 2024
Our whole experience from the time we met Humberto at the border to the time we finished our tour was unbelievable. Humberto our tour guide was incredible and went above and beyond for us to gain local knowledge and experiences of Tijuana, including the amazing local food and drink, the culture and history of Tijuana and Mexico in general and the sightseeing of local spots and shopping. Thanks again to Humberto for an amazing day.
Our tour guide was Victor...
Christopher_H, Dec 2023
Our tour guide was Victor Garcia -- he was incredibly knowledgable about the city of Tijuana and made sure that the experience was convenient and easy for my dad and I. We definitely learned a lot and had a lot of novel experiences without having all the stress we would've without a tour guide like Victor!
Worth the money

Marilyn_B, Oct 2023
Marisol was fantastic.....she knew her business and answered all my questions. She took me to many places. If your doing this tour make sure you are ready to walk, eat and drink. The tacos were fantastic ( I let Marisol choose the types for me). The tequila tasting was great. Great day and trip.....would do it again. thank you Marisol.
It ended up just being me...
Fern_H, Sep 2023
It ended up just being me and the guide Tadeo on the tour and he was great at pointing out all the different fruits and ingredients at the market and giving me background as we visited the different spots :-) thanks my friend
Fantastic tour with...
Sarah_H, Aug 2023
Fantastic tour with Marisol. This was exactly what we looking for traveling for San Diego. Great food, great sights, great guide. Marisol was at the border exit as soon as we arrived and brought us back all the way to the line to return. Best part of our trip!
We experienced Tijuana through the eyes of a local
Monica_L, Jul 2023
We had an amazing time with our guide Humberto. We were able to see the culture and beauty of Tijuana and not just its tasty tacos. Humberto took us to places we wouldn’t of found on our own. We had such a good time and absorbs so much of the history of TJ in a few hours.
Everything was amazing...
Angela_G, May 2023
Everything was amazing and our experience would not have been the same without our amazing tour guide!
We loved it!
Andrew_F, May 2023
Visiting Tijuana was an amazing experience. Tacos were delicious and our guide, Tadeo, was fantastic. Would 100% do this again, and would be interested in other tours with Tadeo.
Waste of Time.
Maria_R, Apr 2023
I do not recommend this tour, the tour guide never showed up at the meeting place! I waited for an hour and a half! I was not able to reach the tour guide (Alexander)
Tacos good but tour was great.
Daniel_S, Jan 2023
I booked this tour at the last minute and was glad I did. Victor was an amazing guide and I was lucky enough to have a one on one with him for the day. The tacos were all delicious however Victor took me to several places IN Tijuana including the history museum, the market and provided me with a lot of information on Tijuana and Mexico in general. Definitely recommend.
Tijuana Autentica!
Ramon_T, Jul 2022
Our guide Alex was simply awesome - he gave us a great overview of the history, culture and of course the cuisine of Tijuana - he also had no problem leading a “grupo,” of only two and was completely understanding when we showed up late due to a bit of a misunderstanding - amazing and memorable day - highly recommended - gracias Alex con todo mi coracon!
Alex was an awesome...
katiri_S, May 2022
Alex was an awesome guide! The food was amazing. I felt very informed, comfortable, and the tour wad very personalized, going to his favorite bars and restaurants. We checked out multiple markets, both for food and souvenirs, and in the end he guided me right back to the boarder. Would definitely recommend!
This was a great tour ....
Gabrielle_H, May 2022
