What You Can Expect

Tijuana Sightseeing Tour from San Diego

Tijuana Sightseeing Tour from San Diego

You’ll be picked up from your San Diego hotel and taken on a comfortable coach ride south to Tijuana, a town right below the US-Mexico border.

Learn from your guide how this city, founded in 1889, was once home to the Grand Casino, which attracted celebrities and Hollywood movie stars like Charlie Chaplin, Rita Hayworth, Jack Dempsey and Babe Ruth.

Pass the Avenue of the Heroes (Paseo de los Héroes), noted for its many monuments and sculptures of heroes, like the Monumento a la Raza (Monument to the Race), the Abraham Lincoln statue, the Ignacio Zaragoza statue, the Cuauhtémoc statue and the Lázaro Cárdenas statue.

See Agua Caliente, named for the neighboring hot springs. This historic entertainment center is home to a casino and hotel that were designed in a Mexican and Californian colonial style, and is fitted with gardens, its own airstrip and bungalows.

Stop at Avenida Revolución, the tourist epicenter of Tijuana, where you can spend two hours browsing shop and art galleries. Grab a drink at the bars or head to a local restaurant to enjoy some Mariachi music over a fresh Mexican meal (own expense).

Continue driving past Frontón Palacio Jai Alai, a landmark fronting nearly an entire block of Avenida Revolución. See the General Zaragoza Statute, commemorating Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín, a former general in the Mexican army, and see the Cuauhtemoc Monument, honoring a 16th-century Aztec ruler.

Other highlights of your tour include Jai Alai Fronton Palace, the Wax Museum (optional), the Tijuana Cultural Center, the Agua Caliente Race Track and the Bazar de Mexico.

After your tour, you’ll be taken back to your San Diego hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

My wife and I had a great time. The driver made the whole tour. We were shown the good side and the bad side and our driver told us not to wear jewelry around our neck. He had a shop owner that he introduced to us. We went into his store and wound up buying a beautiful handbag for my wife. We went around sampling the foods real good. The trip going and coming from Tijuana was interesting, we had to go through customs where they stamped our passports and asked a few questions. All I can say is if you do not go on this tour to Mexico you will miss out on the fun that you can have as well as negotiating about the price of an item. It is fine to go back and forth for the figure of an item you want. Good Luck.
