Sure, San Diego is known for its craft beer scene, but did you know our neighbor to the south has an incredible craft beer scene of its own? That’s right, Mexican beer is much more than just Tecate, Corona, and Pacifico, and taking a craft beer tour of Tijuana is an excellent option for the beer lover wondering what to do in San Diego.
Border Tours gives guided tours to beer geeks looking to taste some of the best beers Tijuana has to offer while also exploring the city by foot and munching on some mouth-watering Mexican food. People on the tour cross over the border by foot and are led through the streets of TJ by a knowledgeable guide who can point out notable landmarks, local hotspots, good places to eat, and of course, the best craft breweries in the city. One of the perks of living in a border town is that we can cross the border and be in a totally different environment, and this is what makes heading to the border to explore Tijuana one of the top things to do in San Diego.
Full-day guided tours cost $120 and leave the San Ysidro McDonald’s at 3:00PM. Be sure to bring your passport for entry into Mexico and re-entry into the US. The price of the tour includes samples of craft beer, tacos, water, food tastings, transportation, and a friendly guide to help you navigate the streets. Along the way you will visit such beloved Tijuana craft breweries as Border Psycho, Insurgent, Mammut, and more. If you love beer but have somehow managed to visit nearly all of the craft breweries in San Diego, a trip to TJ’s breweries is definitely in order. Not only will you taste some delicious new beers, you also will have an expert guide who will help you get a better understanding of the vibrant city of Tijuana.
