Tijuana Day Tour - Can’t recommend this tour enough. Easy transportation, felt safe the entire time, quick across the border and back, our tour guide Victor was incredible. We ate a scorpion, drank, had incredible food, and saw awesome sights. Very insightful and so much fun.

Great intro to Tijuana - Sara is a wonderful cheerleader for Tijuana! She showed us historic sites and gave us fun experiences and made us want to come back and explore more on our own. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her confidence and knowledge made us feel safe. Highly recommend this trip as a fun day excursion from San Diego.

Best tour with Victor and Borders Tours - Thus may be a second review but either way this was one of the best if not the best tour of a place I have had! Out tour guide was Victor, he was the Bomb, well knowledgeable about Tijuana and its history, friendly, and caring about or safety and having a good experience. It didn't hurt that the spots we stopped knew and liked him which made our experience better.

Toe Dip Tour is Tops! - Carlos was our guide and he is a superstar🤩. He accommodated all our needs and dietary restrictions. We learned so much about the city, had great street food, and had time to shop. Carlos love his city and it comes through in the experience he provides. Tips- parking is in a lot on the hill at the left back on rail street. People are constantly coming and going from the lot, so wait a bit and there will be a space. So arrive early if you’re driving. Global Entry holders—No matter how far the line winds down the street to walk back across the US border, just pass by everyone in line on their right side,next to the buildings, and you will see the Global Entry/Sentri sign/lane and you can go all the way to the front of the line with no wait.

Colorful tour - It was our first time to Tijuana and our experience was great because of our guide, Victor and Andre. They were very knowledgeable of the history of Mexico and the city. Their culture and traditions were interesting to learn about. We felt safe the entire time. He was patient when we stopped to shop or browse. I highly recommend Boarder Tours… Aida M. and John M.

Fun time with new friends. - We visited Tijuana. At first seemed scary as we walked across the border then we meet up with the amazing tour guide, Carlos. He was very respectful, very knowledgeable about the area & the culture. He brought us to some really cool places for tequila tastings. Then last stop for a margarita before heading back to border.
