Lose your misconceptions and get to know the real Tijuana on this customizable walking tour! You'll experience life as a local as your guide shows you the best places to hang out and taste delicious street food and drinks.

What to expect?

In order to understand how we got to this cultural awakening, which is making a people want to come and explore Tijuana once again, we must first show you a little of where we’ve been. This tour is the perfect “toe dip” into Tijuana, and we do it the only way that will ensure you get a true local experience… We walk!

Walking will allow us to fully experience the city in its truest form, getting a better sense of the people who live and work a normal life outside of tourism. Hear the music that we listen to, smell the food we enjoy eating after a long day of work, taste the refreshing hoppy treat we drink to catch up with friends, and see the people who make this city what it is through the perseverance and tenacity, making you feel what we feel when we say "Tijuana". You just need to worry about having fun and exploring Tijuana.

Your guide will ensure that you have all your documents to cross the border to Mexico. Once you get to Mexican Customs, you will fill out a form. The guide will be with you or near you at all times if you need him. Once in Tijuana the guide may take you to your head guide to start the tour, depending on how busy the day is.

The guide will lead you in to downtown Tijuana and places where locals go commonly. Taste some of our best street food and drinks. Walk to one of the most iconic streets in Tijuana, Avenida Revolución. You can ask the guide to take you shopping or to a specific place in Tijuana, or we can improvise really good places to show you the real Tijuana, Mexico.

Tijuana is a sister city of San Diego, so don’t worry if you see homeless people. This is a common thing because Tijuana is made up of foreigners and deported people, searching for the American dream. And Tijuana simulates some culture from San Diego, some places are really nice to hang out and rest after eating some great street food.
