Led by a local guide, you'll follow a trail toward tacos, tortas, and tostadas and discover the street stalls frequented by locals. Experience this busy border city like a true Tijuanero as you sample a variety of food, from market-fresh ingredients to classic recipes. The small group size of no more than 12 people ensures you'll get plenty of personal attention from your guide.

Greet your guide and the rest of your small group at a central meeting point at 3pm, then set off to sample some of the best food that Tijuana has to offer. Travel by foot and public transport, learning to navigate the city like a local as you enjoy tastings of classic Tijuanero dishes at several separate stops. Line up at a back-alley cart for delicious tortas, tacos and tostadas; then step into a paletería for a homemade frozen popsicle that’s full of fresh fruit.

Visit the "birthplace" of the Caesar salad, and hear about the city's glamorous golden age when celebrities frequented the elegant restaurants here. Make a stop at Tijuana's oldest open-air market to discover local cheeses, fresh fruits, and regional specialty products from all over Mexico.

I was a little nervous about the trip so I called the number on the itinerary. It was a wrong number but he knew the number that i needed. So, I called the new number and spoke directly with Alex, our guide. It turns out my husband and I were the only ones scheduled for the tour. So, we ended up with a wonderful, personalized tour of some eating establishments in Tijuana. It was a great experience. Alex was very knowledgeable and personable and the food was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our day!
