“Unique expérience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I was a bit sceptical about this trip, but it is good value for money. You are greeted by a mariachi band, hop on the comfortable and slow train to the hacienda, more mariachi band and drinks. When you arrive at the hacienda you are in a good humour and the trip has started well. You then tour the extensive facility where tequila is made and hear the story of using agave to make tequila. Lunch is a buffet affair accompanied by some energetic entertainment, then back on the train for more drinks and more mariachi. It was a fun and different trip.

“The Tequila Express”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The National Chamber of Commerce (CANACO en spanish) organizes in cooperation with the Mexican Railways and a local Tequila distiller, frequent day trips to the tequila area some 40 miles west of Guadalajara.

Those who bought tickets for this event need to meet their guides at the Train Station near the Center of town. The departure with the train is around 10:00 hrs, During the train ride hin and fro there is mariachi music and plenty to drink and snacks.

Upon arrival at the distiller there is a tour of the Agava procesing plant and the distiller, from raw material to finished product. Again during this entire tour there is plenty to save you from dehydration. After the tour there are shows, music and dance. A buffet lunch is served with typical local food.

After the lunch there is more opportunity to watch shows, dance or just buying some souvenirs, Late in the afternoon preparations are made for the ride back to Guadalajara, with an estimated arrival time of 20:00 hrs.

All in all this are some hours well spent , including the nice scenery through the landscape. Np boring moments and for a price of sp,e 1200 pesos for adults, discounts for children below 12 years and for seniors. The dollar in 2012 is approx. 12-13 pesos

I personally made this tour a couple of times an enjoyed it very much. All the food and drinks are included. There is a facility for wheel chairs and bathroom facilities plenty, Strollers can ve taken with you. See the site http://www.tequilaexpress.com.mx/, for some impressions.

“Super Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

This was really fun! A great mix of locals and tourists. English and Spanish commentary. A liesurly 1 and 1/2 hour ride. Comfy seats that can be turned around for a group of four. There were 3 different tequila selections, pre-mixed tequila drinks, margarita's and snacks...all included. The mariachis were VERY fun! The waiters were so good...you couldn't help but get smashed :) We only took the train up to Hurradura, so I can'tcomment on the way back. I would recommend this trip to anyone...well that's if they are over 21 :)
