I did something for the first time during this trip...I took a private tour. Derrik at Turista Libre showed me a vibrant Tijuana, Mexico - one of the most rewarding - and sobering - travel experiences of my life.

Took a private tour with Derrick. Female traveling solo & felt completely safe the entire time. Derrick was a lot of fun/very knowledgeable. Additionally, he was very flexible with what I was interested in. Felt more like wandering around with a friend. Strongly recommend!

I think it depends on the tour. They have set tours, such as the micro-brewery tour; the market hop, the taco tour, etc.-some might be suitable for kids, some not. I think the way to go for families with younger children is... More
