This is a different tour - not a commercial, generic, school visit type of tour. We welcome tequila aficionados and the simply curious alike. The tour is made to be unique, educational and fun; like Mexico itself, a tour of the senses.
Our commitment is to take you behind the scenes and give you a firsthand look at how tequila is made, and demonstrate how to love it more. Learn its ancestral history and traditions, discover its land and birthtown and of course, taste this fine spirit - all in a relaxed, laid-back and unrushed atmosphere.
We select lesser-known places that are 100% Mexican and that cultivate a love for the land and a pride for their craft. We make it our mission to bring acknowledgment and recognition to their hard work and the excellence of their product.
We privilege smaller groups for greater attention (tour size normally varies between 4-12 persons). Photos can be taken in any area of the distilleries.
Join us and share our knowledge and passion for Mexico's iconic drink!
The Tour lasts a full day and includes the following:
Hotel / Hostel pickup and drop-off within the Metropolitan Guadalajara Area (included);
Roundtrip transportation between Guadalajara and Tequila;
Throughout the day we will visit two family-run distilleries for a step by step explanation of tequila's making process - from cooking to fermentation to distillation to bottling;
The visit of both distilleries will be crowned with a tutored tasting of their house reserve and liquors
For lunch (included) we will enjoy the best traditional dishes from Jalisco in the heart of the market. Vegetarians are welcome - your request will be prepared at the moment;
A stroll through the town of Tequila to visit its main attractions;
More tequila tasting at traditional and boutique stores;
Jose Cuervo Gift Shop;
An entry at either the Sauza Los Abuelos Museum or the Tequila National Museum (subject to changing opening hours) to appreciate the evolution of the industry and deepen your knowledge;
Amazing views of the agave landscape and various photo opportunities - namely in a mature agave field.
Bilingual Tour: offered in both English & Spanish. Also available in French (with prior notice and subject to availability).
The Tour can also be offered in a private version at an extra cost (please contact us for more information).
