          A great way to learn about the beautiful GDL and Tlaquepaque!
          This tour was incredible. We learned so much history. Our guide Norberto was a delight. Spoke very good English. He was always open to our questions. Flexible to what we wanted and where we wanted to cut things short. Would highly highly recommend!

          Great tour if you like history
          Norberto was very knowledgeable about the history of Guadalajara. He and Danny, our driver, were very friendly and personable. I would have liked more time in Tlaquepaque, though. I feel lunch was a little long and so was Guadalajara and felt rushed in Tlaquepaque. All in all, it was a good tour though and I would do it again.

          Destinos Amigo Tours: WORST COMPANY IN GUADALAJARA
          My daughter had an emergency and I contacted Destinos Amigo Tours to reschedule. I would have been ok with not having a refund, but I would have liked to at least reschedule. My daughter and I barely had any sleep and it would have been impossible for us to do the tour. I do not recommend Destinos Amigo Tours. When I tried negotiating changing the date, they simply stopped replying to my messages on WhatsApp. I will never purchase a tour suggested by Trip Advisor either. If they do not check irresponsible vendors, they do not deserve people’s business. Trip Advisor should do more due diligence with the companies it does business with. I’ll be documenting the conference I came to in Guadalajara on my social media and will do the same for this trip.

          IT was mostly a ride with suggestions about where to eat.
          This tour did not include enough of modern Guadalajara and the time in Tlatlepaque was as well limited. It was basically paying for a ride, going to sweet factory and then staying a couple of hours on our own in Tlatlepaque.

          Easy way to view the highlights of the city
          If you are coming to Guadalajara, then you must come see the historic section of the city and Tlaquepaque. Not only are they the most attractive parts of the city, but Tlaquepaque falls under one of the pueblos majicos and so should not be missed. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and knew the city like the back of his hand. Book this tour.

          This tour was a one stop shop for all of the historic places in the city of Guadalajara plus a casual look at Tlaquepaque. Our guide, Dante, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Guadalajara. Very glad we took this tour!

          Total ripoff operation...!!
          Ripped off totally and completely. !! Be aware you cannot contact tour office prior to booking to ask if service dog allowed,food provided ,pickup locations etc. We booked for next day tour and found several problems that caused us to be unable to take tour. Our money was not refunded. The operator claimed it was within 24 hours of tour and they were permitted to keep the total cost of tour. I will take it up with my bank . I think you are best to avoid these folks

          The tour guide, Dante, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He explained all the details of the trip and let us be free to explore but also made sure we were looked after if needed.

          Horrible Experience!
          If only we could go back in time and avoided this Tour! We started the tour very well. We viewed very historical landmarks. Halfway during the tour, the Nightmare begins when the tour bus driver went MIA. Left us and the tour guide stranded at a sightseeing location in Guadalajara. We sat down for 25 minutes. Then we walked 3 very long scary blocks of Prostitution, just to try to meet the tour bus driver at a coinvent location. We ended up at busy unknown intersection where we had the Mexico Police to get involved to help us locate our tour bus driver as we had our personal belongings inside the bus. After 75 Terror minutes, the Tour Bus Driver shows up after he was pulled over by the Police Officials. We requested the Tour Agency to have us dropped off in return to our Hotel as we were not in Any Health Condition to continued the tour. We were Frighten, Tired, and Hungry! No apologies was given from Amigo Tours Guadalajara Agency after two calls of reported claims. Very unprofessional tour agency. Please stay away from this tour! Not worth it....

          A terrible mess. Big group with a lack of respect for others. Loud people from Monterrey 😤. So loud and disrespectful that were sent back on a different bus. Despite all that, we had an excellent guide. Dante was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. Even though Jose Cuervo Is a beautiful distillery, I won’t come back to the tequila town.

          Great first impression of the city.
          Excellent! A must, if you are visiting Guadalajara. Enough time to see the principal buildings and streets in Guadalajara and also, to walk, eat and shop at stores and galleries in beautiful Tlaquepaque.

        The trip was mediocre at best; having just drive us to the destination without much exposure of the history or culture of the place, the guide (Ramon) just walked us around and rushed us all to get to the restaurant about an hour away from Chapala. He gave us 40 minutes to get pictures around Chapala. He seemed motivated to get us all to the restaurant. When we arrived Ajijic, he hadn't set any expectations of timing where we could roam and he just went ahead and guided us past a local event. When asked about it, he ignored us.

        While visiting Guadalajara, I booked a tour to nearby Lake Chapala and Ajijic with Amigo Tours through Viator. I did not get to take the tour, as the company contacted me approximately 19 hours before the tour was scheduled to depart, informing me that they did not have a group, and proceeded to upsell me a tour to Tequila instead. They lost one star for selling a service that they could not provide, and I deducted a second star due to disorganization when multiple people asked me numerous times for my pick-up address. Deducted a third star because the refund takes 3-7 days, depending on your bank. If you had booked a tour for a large group, you could be seriously screwed. I hope you have better luck on your adventure!

        Dear Amig@ Thank you for your comments, we are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused you. As much as possible, we try our best not to cancel a tour, and we try to offer another incredible experience so that you do not miss out on a great experience. We understand your inconvenience. Regarding the bank's delay, we would love to be able to reimburse you as soon as you request it, but due to the security of the bank's movements and processes, it takes a longer period of time. We would have loved to have read about your experience on the tour. We look forward to seeing you again on your next tour. Dulce, Amigo Tours

        The tour was great - for what we wanted to see. Very accommodating guide. But actually I just wanted to see what Chapala and Ajijac were all about. Well, it bores me. Chapala on a Sunday was local scene mixed. Strolling on the malecon - about an hour out of GDL. Ajijac about 10 min down the road - and very small streets and cars parked everywhere- along the roads. The streets are cramped, and shops selling tourists things. Restaurants the same the plaza with tourists stands all around. And very busy. I’m not interested at all. I will Say our guide pointed out the population is 10,000 Americans, 5000 Canadians and 2000 Mexicans. Well I saw a lot of Mexican people - it was Sunday - and many gringos were in the 70’s age group. I’m 64, artist/ photographer so I’m not a young guy my wife is 56, but we are not retires. I would not retire there anyway. We also went to Tlaquepaque- what a tourist trap that was. A lot more fun than Chapala. For sure. But it would get old quick. But worth a look no doubt. Again it was Sunday. We stayed in the Americano section of Guadalajara- it’s probably not what people traveling Look for- but that was real life. And most enjoyable. Downtown one mile away was again crammed with people - very hectic- I’d avoid - now we are in Puerto Vallarta- I like it here. I’m not a high end resort person, but we are in one. It’s nice. So, I guess this trip, one of my many trips to Mexico was more fact finding - being from San Diego 30 years ago and now in New York. I do love Mexico! The people the food and the way of chill. But I don’t live here as an expat. At least not yet :). From what I see- the overblown security issue is nil.

        Chapala is about 35 minutes from Guadalajara, it is very nice place great for shopping around el Malecón, make sure to take a lock ( un Candado)because at the end of the pierr there is a place where u put the lock and throw away the key with ur better half it means that the relationship will last until the lock falls apart or for life, other little place to go is Ajijic it is about 15 minutes from Chapala, it is wonderful little town with a lot of great estores with wonderful jewelry and Art, you will enjoy the place.

        The tour guide and the mini-bus driver were top notch. It would have been helpful at the start of the tour to know the itinerary, because our party ended up eating lunch at Chapala because we did not know that we were scheduled to eat later on in the afternoon, and so we missed lots of Chapala.

        Also, I understand why the tour bus makes stops at Vicente Fernandez house and the lady selling candies and sweets but I would rather have had more time in Chapala.

        Visiting Ajijic and Lago de Chapala has been one or the most satisfying traveling experiences.

        Our tour guide Luis gave us a through the town explaining and telling stories of every single córner.

        The month If october is great to visit Chapala. The weather is great, local people are nice, food is delicious and you can see samples or outstanding craftmanship everywere.

        I highly recomend paying a visita to this small town.
