Crossing Borders: Tijuana Day Trip from San Diego

    What to Expect
    In order to understand how we got to this cultural awakening, which is making a people want to come and explore Tijuana once again. We must first show you a little of where we’ve been. This first tour is the perfect “toe dip” into Tijuana, and we do it the only way that will ensure you get a true local experience… We walk! Walking will allow us to fully experience the city in its truest form, getting a better sense of the people who live and work a normal life outside of tourism. Hearing the music that we listen to, smelling the food we enjoy eating after a long day of work, tasting the refreshing hoppy treat we drink to catch up with friends, seeing the people who make this city what it is through the perseverance and tenacity, making you feel what we feel when we say Tijuana. You just need to worry about having fun and explore Tijuana.

    Truly a great experience made easy by Carlos. The Blue Line from Downtown stops right in front of the McDonald's meeting point and boarder patrol is right across the street. Carlos is a great guy who is very knowledgeable about the city/food/history/etc. He was able...More

    Nice easy transactions both ways. When you enter into Mexico they look at you like you're crazy and say you need a passport but they always let you right through so they're just trying to scare you. When you come back all you need is...More

    You need to check whether citizens of your country need a visa to enter Mexico, Tijuana is in Mexico therefore a USA visa is not applicable there, but you will need the USA visa to return to the USA

    That visa will work fine. Almost all our travelers visiting Baja use that kind of visa. Let us know if you have any other question.
