Cette excursion d'une journée pour le Mexique est un Must pour les fans de shopping, les amoureux de la cuisine mexicaine ou les curieux désireux de visiter les arènes, d'arpenter l'Avenue des Héros et la Plaza Rio. C'est à quelques minutes en voiture de San Diego, mais vous aurez l'impression de pénétrer dans un autre monde lorsque vous quitterez les États-Unis et entrerez au Mexique.
Je fus déçu. Déjà par l'organisation et deux Il n'y a rien de spécial à visiter dans la ville touristique. quand vous n'avez que 2 heures pour manger et essayer de faire du shopping sans vous faire arrêter par des marchands tous les 1 mètre. Mais malheureusement nous avons visité la ville économique de Tijuana en car seulement après la visite de la ville dite touristique et là c'était beaucoup plus moderne et attractif. Je ne referai pas.
I give 1 star for the travel and 3 for the actual tour part. The air conditioning wasn't working well in the van and my husband and I were crammed in the last row of seats. Very hot and uncomfortable. Could not here the guide most of the time. The shopping was ok, the food ok but was hoping for more history of the city and less touristy stuff.
We really enjoyed our half day trip to Tijuana.
We had already visited several Mexican ports on a cruise, so we wanted to visit Tijuana to compare the city to the coastal areas we had visited. It was very, very different! There is nothing picturesque about Tijuana - it is an urban sprawl, and it is a stark contrast to the beautiful San Diego which is just over the border, a mere 20 km away.
Our driver was very good, and he offered some commentary, and answered questions during the trip. The bus was very modern and comfortable with ample space for the five passengers on board.
We enjoyed a light meal in a Mexican restaurant in Tijuana and our driver then took us to a leathergoods shop the prices were great and a liquor store where we were able to taste and purchase various Tequilas. We were then free to wander the street and shop on our own for a couple of hours. We found the prices of handicrafts and clothing etc to be on par with the other places we had already visited in Mexico.
The border crossing was quick and easy on the way over but a bit longer on the way back. It was very interesting for us though, as we had never experienced a border crossing before.
Overall, I would recommend this trip to anyone who has never experienced Mexico. It's a fun afternoon and an easy trip from San Diego.
We loved our tour Tijuana City and Shopping Trip from San Diego. It was one of the best tours. Juan was an amazing Host.
Very Informative and Knowledgeable of the area. Highly recommended .

We had such a wonderful time. Juan, our guide was amazing. He took terrific care of us and was funny and helpful whenever needed. I would recommend highly, especially if you have Juan as your guide. Would do again in a heartbeat.
It was a interesting trip! We had a true experience with our guide, the locals, buying tequila, eating lunch in a nice authentic Mexican and listening to Mariachis!!! I though we just expend to much time in the Tequila store waiting for everyone to finish shopping.
