It was so convenient as David came to our condo and picked us up, taking us on an informative history lesson of Brownsville and Matamoros, driving first around Brownsville, showing us... More

Don't always believe everything the internet reports. We felt safe the entire time we were with David Burlingame on our Bro-Mat Mexico Tour at Brownsville. David came to our condo and picked us up, taking us on the beginning of an informative history lesson of Brownsville and Matamoros, stopping at the duty-free station to purchase a few wares (name brand...

David was the best tour guide! This is a MUST DO when staying in Brownsville!! David was very knowledgeable of the historical area of Brownsville, TX and Matamoros Mexico. He took us to all the great sites and shopping! Lunch at Garcia's was delicious! I felt very safe during the entire trip!!

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet regarding Mexico. David Burlingame gave us a tour that normally only locals are afforded. He picked us up at our condo, gave us a very informative history lesson, introduced us to the historical Catedral de Nuestra Senora del Refugio, took us to all the local shops of Matamoros that only someone from...

At first we were apprehensive about touring Mexico but after hearing more about David's Bro-Mat tour we were reassured. We felt safe the whole time. He has a background as a history teacher and we were very much impressed with his knowledge of the area and sites we visited. It was a good balance of sites, shopping and time for... More

My husband and I and our two kids (11 and 8) enjoyed a 5+ hour trip with David in a large air-conditioned van. The trip is exactly as the other reviewer stated. Being Texans, we have crossed the border in four different Texas border towns multiple times, but not since having children. We have enjoyed it in the past, and... More

While staying in Brownsville we had the opportunity to take a tour with guide and company owner David. He has lived in the area all his life and has a great knowledge of the history and customs. The tour started with a very informative and interesting trip around Brownsville outlining the history of the area. It even included a stop... More
