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.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Our guide, Greg, was knowledgeable, funny and helpful.
His knowledge and experience assured us this trip would be great; and it was. It was an interesting trip into Tijuana and getting to drive through town a little on the way to our destination was a treat. You are dropped into a very touristy area. Take the time to walk all 10 blocks. The shopping is nice, the food is authentic.
Again, Greg was helpful when it came to leave. He thoroughly explained how customs works. Using this tour was the best way to experience a day trip to Tijuana.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

An excellent tour and one of the few tours left going from SD to TJ. The tour guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. The tour delivers what was promised and then some, but of it's impossible too much in only one afternoon.
