Derrick is an excellent tour guide. He spent 5 hours showing us around Tijuana. I was nervous about touring Tijuana which is why I looked for a private tour guide. Derrick made it comfortable immediately. It's easy to find the meeting place just outside the border and he was right on time. He helped us through the border crossing making... More

I'm think kind of traveler that doesn't like tours. I loved this tour. Felt like a good friend was showing us around in a place they knew very well. Highly recommended.

Wife and I took a 6-hour private Tijuana tour with Derrick. He crossed the border with us and used his jeep to show us around. We went to a market, the border, the beach, a cemetery, a local restaurant, two taco stands, and an ice cream shop. All stops were tailor made to our specific interests. I felt very safe... More

Must do tour. Great fun. You meet at the entrance to Mcdonalds on the USA side and walk over the border. Its a bit if a walk to the bus. We were taken to two local taco places and the food was delish. At the second place I had a octopus taco and it was delicious. Recommend you try it.... More

This tour group and it's entire staff are the best! My family and I went on the Dia de Los Muertos tour and it was amazing. Everyone of the staff is kind and considerate and they truly care about their city, country and culture! If you are in San Diego or Tijuana, this is a must.

My husband and I were on a Yelp tour this past Saturday, November 5, 2016, in which Turista Libre was utilized for transportation. We even interacted with the owner of the company briefly while waiting for our tour to begin which was a wonderful experience as well. I just want to let everyone know what a great job Frank, Alejandro... More

This is the best way to see Tijuana for what it is, not for what it's stereotyped to be. For those who are unfamiliar with the city it is a great way to experience TJ in a safe environment and it is ran by people who are really passionate about their job. If you like getting away from the touristy... More

We went on a Tourista Libre tour to celebrate our birthdays and it was absolutely great! Derrik has truly created a very unique company that has helped to bring to light all of the amazing things that are happening right across the border in Tijuana. His knowledge and kindness towards all the people there truly make this experience what it... More

Turista Libre is amazing! They have a calendar of rotating tours that you can look up on their website. They offer a range of street food tours, brewery tours, lucha libre, Market tours, and so on. I have had the pleasure of joining them on 3 tours this year & everyone has exceeded my expectations. Granted I live in San... More

We truly enjoyed our private trip to Tijuana with our tour guided Derrik. He went out of his way to find the perfect lunch for us. We saw all sights of Tijuana from the seedy side all the way to the mansions on the hill. Being two women, we were totally safe and he never left us alone. He explained... More
