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

I keep telling you......check out this tour company. We did the "dive bar" tour this time and we all had an excellent time. Delicious drinks and street tacos, fun bars and good people. A real TJ experience. The best part is Derrik! Always warm, always enthusiastic and always informative.....and damn cute too! Bring a groups of friends. I promise, you'll... More

Had the best time on this tour. It was easy to meet Alex in front of the meet up spot. I took the trolley from San Diego to the border crossing which saved me $$$ on parking which is difficult and expensive at the border. Got into Mexico easily and Alejandro walked all 12 of us over to the bus... More

Alejandro met our group (12 guys) at meeting point, after a quick jaunt across the border jumped on the bus (loved the murals on the ceiling of the bus) and had cold ones ready for us en route to the first brewery! The 3 we hit were awesome with favorite area being Plaza Fiesta. The taqueritos we hit really hit... More
