Private Tequila Tour

The private version offers you: exclusive visit to different distilleries than the ones visited on the group tour, more flexibility, personalized attention, no waiting on the rest of the group and a schedule tailored to your needs.

This tour is ideal for couples and small groups of friends, family and co-workers. Wedding Anniversary, honeymoon, birthday, bachelor(ette) party - whatever your reason to celebrate, we can help make your special occasion even more memorable!

Both distilleries visited are family-owned and have long standing tradition of producing tequila; one was established in 1904. Once in a while, you may have the chance to meet the producers or distillery owners and exchange with them.

The Tour is all-yours: photo stops, breaks and return time are at your convenience. Most importantly, you have the guide’s full attention; there’s no “sharing” with other people!

Dear SoCal33, Thank you very much for your review on the horseback riding tour. We have recently reformed it to make it more intimate and authentic by venturing onto lesser-travelled roads. Chema and Manuel are not only great friends, they are also gracious hosts who take it to heart to make the best experience for travelers. As you mention, our goal is to provide a tequila education in a relaxed and laid back atmosphere. I am pleased this was achieved and hopefully we can host you again in the future. Kind regards, Miguel Marentes

Lizbeth, Fernando and Edgar were excellent hosts on this tour! Liz was super nice and patient in explaining the different forms of tequila and how each one was developed, from blanco to extra anejo. My group really appreciated being able to ask her questions throughout the tour

Dear 370mitchelly, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your opinion on the tour led by Lizbeth. As everyone on the team, Liz has a passion for tequila which she loves to share with travelers. Both distilleries visited are local family-run enterprises producing artisanal craft tequilas however their products vary due to factors such as location, soil and production techniques. Exposing visitors to both allow to compare and determine which best suits their personal taste. I am pleased you enjoyed the experience and thank you again for the recommendation! Best regards, Miguel Marentes
