Where should we plan to pick you up? For culinary tours originating in the U.S., you'll meet your guide at a designated meeting point on the U.S. side of the border, then walk across the border together to your tour vehicle. We'll send you detailed directions to the designated meeting point. If you'd like to be picked-up and dropped-off at an address in San Diego, you'll pay a cross-border transportation surcharge in addition to your other tour fees (surcharge applied/paid ONCE for your group). There is no transport surcharge for pick-up locations in Northern Baja (Tijuana, Tecate, Rosarito, North or Central Ensenada, Port of Ensenada, or Valle de Guadalupe).
