        Guadalajara laid out before you!
        Efficient pick up from our hotel - saves all the trouble of trying to find the meeting point when you are new to a city! Ramon was a great guide and we did so much in the 6 hours it really made you feel you had learnt so much but at a good steady pace! Not rushed! Enjoyed all of it but especially Tlaquepaque- what a magical place! Thank you to Ramon and our driver. Maria & Paul

        Don Ramon is the BEST tour guide
        We had a wonderful time on the Tour to Tequila. Don Ramon was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. He answered our questions and gave great recommendations for not only Tequila but the rest of our time in Jalisco. Highly recommend!

        Cool and Comprehensive!
        This was a wonderful, comprehensive tour of Downtown Guadalajara. I highly recommend doing this tour, especially if you only have limited time in the city. The traffic in Guadalajara is incredibly difficult to maneuver, and we felt very safe with our driver, who got us everywhere efficiently. It would be very difficult to try to go to all the sites they take you to on your own. **SPECIAL NOTE** Even though we visited in November, it was hot. There was also a lot of standing directly in the sun. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND bringing sunglass, a hat, and wearing high SPF sunscreen. The sun was very intense and this is coming from someone who lives in the AZ desert. Also, bring a snack and water.

        Super friendly and knowledgeable!
        They were punctual picking us up from our hotel and the vehicle was very clean and comfortable. Our tour guide, Ramon, had a great personality and was very knowledgeable about the different sites we visited. We enjoyed the views and the tasty treats. We got the opportunity to have lunch at Tlatepaque and shop around.

        Got a day? Go visit the Tequila Distilleries!
        Excellent tour… we were picked up at hotel at 9:40 am and back by 5:45 pm. Saturday’s traffic was light… the return during the week days could be a couple hours so be prepared. December’s weather was perfect. I can’t imagine during the heat of summer. The small distillery was less crowed than the Jose Cuervo plant in Tequila. We learned about all of the steps that it takes from Blue Agave plant to bottle. The large scale of the Cuervo facility was impressive. We got street tacos for lunch… a very full tummy for $6.25 and had plenty of time to walk around the plaza and shop for souvenirs. Small samples of tequila… no worries about over doing it. We added $10 per person as a tip to the driver and tour guide. I would recommend this company again.

        Great experience
        My husband and I went on the Tequila tour on Tuesday November 7th. We don’t remember the driver or tour guides names but they were excellent! Extremely friendly and did everything to make our trip wonderful. We have an absolute blast learning about the tequila making process. All the places we stopped at were wonderful. The tour guide recommended a spot to eat at and it was great as well. The whole experience was amazing. We will definitely do it again when we are back in the area.

        My private Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque Tour
        No one showed up and it became a private tour! My guide Hernan was terrific in providing me with historical and interesting details. I highly recommend him and his group.

        A Terrific Tour With Alejandro!
        Our guide Alejandro was terrific! So knowledgeable about history. The pyramids were fascinating, and a bonus was that we were there for the solar eclipse.When we visited the distillery, I thought our tour would be done by one of the employees. But no, Alejandro was our expert and guide, doing a superb job educating us on all things Tequila! Salute!

        Overall I highly recommend I give it a 10 out of 10 the tour guides and staff were amazing and very knowledgeable.
        My favorite part of the experience was traveling to the agave fields, and learning how the plants are harvested.

        Great tour to understand Guadalajara's history and culture
        This was a very organized tour and I highly recommend it. My favorite part was looking at Orozco's paintings. It was also really fun going to Tlaquepaque. It is a good tour to learn bits and pieces of the city without diving too deep into one area.

        Very poor communication - DO NOT BOOK
        I texted the tour using What's App to find out whether I could be picked up at my hotel and to confirm the pick up point. There was no response. A Spanish-speaking friend called for me and was told that that information would be sent the day before "through the platform" I received no information (no email or text). My friend drove me to the location of the company (assuming that was the pickup point) and we were told that the tour had been CANCELED. I would not recommend booking with this company.

        Good tour
        The tour guide was good, he took the time to explain the history behind the locations we visited. I feel for the price the number of locations to visit need to increase. Overall it was good.

      We felt that the guide was not as informed as he should be, couldn’t answer some of our questions, very impersonal. The email the day before did not let us know there would be no good place to purchase lunch in Teochitlan. It was nice to be able to see the circular pyramids.

      Had a lovely time on a day trip to Guachimontones with guide Hernan and driver Erick from
      Estacion Turistica GDL. Hernan was incredibly knowledgable about the site, as well as flora and fauna, the local communities, etc. Highly recommend this outing! It's only about an hour drive from Guadalajara and is well worth visiting. Be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen.

      This was an absolutely terrific tour, so informative and our guide was wonderful. We really enjoyed it and the round pyramids were great. We only hope the Mexican govt can find some funding or some Universities to fund the remainder of the excavation would be excellent to see the 2 huge pyramids uncovered as well. But definitely recommend, 10/10.

      They left without me and changed their pickup destination and location , the booking stated clear location and instructions which I followed, the booking indicated to be picked up I would have to contact them to schedule my pickup, I followed directions and they left without me, the agency said I was at fault since they changed pick up time and destination since those being picked up were less than expected and that is why they left early, this was their excuse for me being left waiting at 9:30 at plaza del sol only to be told I missed an early departure. Please refund me the tour.

      We're sorry you missed your tour. Like all our passengers, you were notified a day before about the time in which we would pick you up at the hotel, we were at the indicated place and time without you being present. The refund has already been made.

      Hard to believe that artifacts like this are a short drive away from Guadalajara. Very nice visitor center and the rounds pyramids are amazing in person. Guides were very friendly and offer English and Spanish tours.
