I was born and spent the first years of my life in Baja California. Migrating to the US at 15 allowed me to better appreciate the differences between our two cultures. After earning a Ph. D. in Psychology, I spent the next 30 something years working in the field of Criminal Psychology trying to better understand the various factors contributing to criminal behavior. I have traveled extensively and visited over 52 countries in 4 continents. Adhering to the belief that "when ignorance is the problem, traveling is the solution", I always try to pinpoint and explain some of the more subtle observed behaviors and customs to help visitors gain a better understanding of Mexican people.
I have been leading this type of excursions for approximately 3 and 1/2 years.

This experience was definitely one for the books. Ricardo was so personable and was an amazing and knowledgeable guide in Tijuana. l’ll admit I was a bit hesitant about initially visiting due to word of mouth from friends and others, however he made us feel very safe throughout the entire experience! Would totally recommend to anyone who is interested!

This was a terrific day for my wife and me. We saw so many interesting places and learned so much from Ricardo. We highly recommend this day trip. If you do go, don’t eat a big breakfast as you will have plenty of opportunities to try different prepared foods as well as buy fruits, vegetables, and much much more at the Marcado Miguel Hildago.

I did not have any expectations going on this tour, but by the end I was so amazed at Ricardo giving such a deep and multi faceted views of Tijuana. I haven’t been to Mexico since I was 10 and this trip made me realize how much I wanted to go to Mexico. The people of Tijuana were so nice, accommodating and happy to share a story and let you try their food. I was so enthralled with Ricardo’s ability to tell the historical background of Friendship park, Revolucion Street, and even seeing the families of Central Americans in limbo waiting for passage to America. It was all sides of Tijuana. Ricardo was even gracious enough to take us back to our Airbnb. I went with my girlfriend and we both felt accepted by him. I will most definitely refer him to my friends and family. Thank you Ricardo!

This is a must-book for travelers with a thirst for history, knowledge, and authenticity. Ricardo is a thoughtful and knowledgeable guide and provided an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience. The “real” Tijuana is incredible and you don’t want to miss out on this tour. Thank you, Ricardo!

I really enjoyed this experience to Tijuana. Ricardo not only showed us the beautiful side but the real side, such as the caravans and freedom park. We enjoyed authentic Caesar salad, visited the farmers market and food court where I had the best Chile Rellanos in my life. If you are hesitant about doing this, I hope this review provides the necessary reassurance to go through with it.
