When some people think of things to do in San Diego, it might not even occur to them that they could also take a quick trip across the border and enjoy some time in Tijuana. One of the best aspects of living in a border town is the ability to have a great time in two countries on the same day.
San Diego Scenic Tours offers combo tours of San Diego and Tijuana that are not to be missed. The driver takes you out for a full day, starting with a four hour tour of San Diego that hits all of the biggest tourist destinations, including La Jolla, Coronado, Old Town, Balboa Park, Seaport Village, and the Gaslamp Quarter. While visiting these hotspots you will get a history of the most iconic spots in town and pick up some insider’s tips on other San Diego things to do. The comfortable, air-conditioned buses make your tour even more enjoyable.
As if there are enough things to do in San Diego today, once the four hours are up you will head down to Tijuana where you will receive a narrated bus tour of the city before stopping at the historic Avenida Revolucion. Here you will have two hours to explore the dining and shopping hotspot, listening to mariachi music, picking up souvenirs, eating savory Mexican food, and sipping on margaritas. You might even learn a few new phrases in Spanish or discover a new favorite Mexican dish and find some bars and restaurants worth another trip in the near future.
San Diego Scenic Tours offers this trip starting at $77.99 per person with the option of adding a $100 harbor tour to the trip. Pickups are available at some hotels and a valid passport is required for crossing the border to and from Mexico. Be sure to bring some extra cash to buy food, drinks, and souvenirs, and save some for the end of your trip to tip the driver.
Funseekers have the chance to purchase a FunGig that shows them the best of two major international cities with the excitement of international travel. Funbassadors can pick up some extra cash and show off their knowledge of both San Diego and Tijuana by either securing a spot on a tour or creating their own and personalizing a fun cross-border adventure with some new friends.
