Full description
Head South of the border on a 5-hour tour that takes you into Tijuana and brings you directly in contact with Mexican culture.

Begin your tour by crossing into Mexico and enter a world of contrasts. To kick things off, you'll travel into the main street known for its historic roundabouts until you reach the Cultural Center and IMAX Theatre.

Get to know the famous Zona Rio with its large plaza and see statues of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Cuauhtémoc the Aztec King, and other important figures of Mexico. Experience the height of the Tijuana Bullring and the Tijuana Water Tower. Then make your way to the famous Avenida Revolucion for some shopping and bargaining.

Before you do your shopping, you will experience the Tijuana tradition of making your own Mexican taco, a culinary delight which consists of a delicious tortilla filled with meat, chicken, or veggies, and all the trimmings such as guacamole, salsa, cilantro, and onion. You'll have the time of your life! Come, and fall in love with Mexico!
