Saturday Fun Day in Tijuana

It was a great time. I went with a good friend and we had a fantastic time. We were a bit confused at the meeting spot because the instructions still say meet at McDonalds. My recommendation would be to change the meeting spot from McDonald's to meeting across the border. It will cute down on confusion and prevent angry tour takers. The Pandemic has been going on for nearly 2 years and it does not seem to be letting up any time soon. At least update the meeting location

We had a great time and met some very nice people! I was apprehensive at first about meeting in Mexico, but Tadeo was right there! He was knowledgeable, professional and a wonderful guide.

The tour started an hour late, while we stood and waited. The guides were friendly, but it seemed like two native friends who just got together and figured they could walk groups around. There was SO MUCH WALKING, which I was prepared for, but whew! We did enjoy the tequila tasting, but felt the prices were a little high there. We were taken to the souvenir shops and bartered our way into some deals. It would have been nice to see the inside of some of the old buildings or something we can’t just Google. We were fed a tasty authentic lunch, but the place really didn’t have options nor an elaborate menu. HERES WHERE IT GETS SHADY: ok so time to go home - instead of walking us back, they put us into random taxis. We were told at the beginning of the tour that it would only be a ~15 minute line to re-enter the US. Surprise! The like was long and wrapped around the block. 90 minute wait. Our tour guides said we could wait in line, or pay a random group of men $20 to skip the line and be through to the US in 5 minutes. As it was getting dark, we gave the last of our money to these men. We were then escorted to stand outside of a parking lot two blocks away. As we stood there, we heard a man inside the lot cursing out the people who were supposed to be taking us to the front of the line, as he had been waiting for over an hour. We started asking questions and asking for a refund after 20 minutes. They brought us back to the main group and instead of giving our money back, they offered to walk us to the front of the line. We were stopped by the police and told to get to the back of the line. Luckily we were able to get our money back, but at this point we could have been through customs. We waited in line for two hours while infants and nursing mothers begged us for a dollar. Overall it was a decent cultural experience but I never need to go back to Tijuana ever again. Never again.

Our tour guide Gregorio was amazing! My boyfriend had a lot of questions about life in Tijuana and he was very informative. The food was sooo good! Once our tour was ending our tour let us know of some good spots to check out. He was great!

Great experience with Tadeo

Tadeo was very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with for the afternoon. The food was good. I don't drink but they had an option for me at the place that served margaritas. We had to meet on the Mexico side but it was really easy to cross the pedestrian entrance and he was waiting 50 feet away from the exit gate.
