Tijuana Taco Tours with the Three Amigos!

All Taco Tours are postponed indefinitely.

Three Amigos Taco Tours are very saddened to announce the passing of our amigo and founding partner Fernando Cuevas of Tours in Baja earlier this month, April 2023. In addition to being our ace driver and a fully-licensed tour guide in Baja California for over 20 years, Fernando was the heart and soul of our tours. Loved by his family, friends, and our guests, his presence in all of our lives will be sorely missed. For this reason, we are postponing our tours indefinitely.

Contact Three Amigos Taco Tours for more information.

OUR TOUR INCLUDES 6 Tacos at 6 taquerias, An Exclusive Mezcal Tasting, And a sweet dessert at a mexican ice cream parlor with over 100 flavors from which to choose!

The Three Amigos TIJUANA TACO TOUR explores the variety of tacos available in Tijuana, Baja California’s largest city. With immigrants from all over the country living in the border city, Tijuana is one of the few urban areas where you can enjoy tacos influenced by many Mexican culinary regions. This includes tacos de birria (Jalisco), barbacoa (Texcoco), mariscos (Sinaloa & Ensenada), carne asada (Sonora), adobada (al pastor) (Mexico City) and more. TOUR IS ONLY $199/US, ALL INCLUSIVE!

We meet at the US-Mexico border in Tijuana in San Ysidro on the US side at the pedestrian crossing. There are several secure parking lots in San Ysidro that charge around $10-$20/US to park for 8-10 hours. We will meet at a designated meeting point and walk across into Tijuana with your guide, where a comfortable 12 person van, driver and guides will be waiting for us. If you are coming from Baja, you can meet our group on the Tijuana side of the Pedwest pedestrian crossing.

Our tour includes 5 Tijuana tacos, mezcal, and a SPECIAL Valentines cake at the end of the tour — so arrive hungry! Bring your current US passport book or card. Since we are walking across at Pedeast, the wait should be minimal. NOTE: Masks are not mandatory in Baja California at this time.

Comfortable transportation, three trusted guides, five tacos, tasting of 3-4 mezcals, Valentines cake at the end of the tour. All taxes and tips are included. Payments for the tour must be made in advance. If you need to cancel after payment, no refund is offered, but you can reschedule for one of our next tours or transfer your reservation to an amigo.

    Are we able to purchase more tacos from the vendors?

    1. Absolutely! We do move from place to place at a pretty brisk pace, but if you have time for more, you can buy as many as you want! We do 7 tacos, but sometimes, that’s just not enough 😉 Hope you can join us…we have 5 seats left!
