This was definitely a highlight of our time in Guadalajara. The lunch and fiesta with dancing and live music was an amazing experience. You might think that this would be a big drunkfest, but that wasn't the case at all. Yes, everyone enjoyed different tequila beverages and beer (I'd suggest waiting until after the tour to start drinking as it's quite a long day.) But it's more of a family atmosphere than a party one, and I didn't see anyone that was "baracho." I learned a lot about the making and culture around tequila, the distillery was beautiful, the hosts were friendly and smart, and the people were a joy. SO fun!

To long to get started, to slow through Guadalajara, but once leave town it is a fun experience. Very much of a party atmosphere on board

This is a wonderful adventure for the tequila lover, those who enjoy Mexican culture and history, for fun loving residents and tourists alike. There is tequila tasting and drinking from the morning onset of train travel, and does not really end until you return to the station. Beautiful trains, good music and of course tequila! They have done it all right!

Lots of fun and a great way to go see the town of Tequila. It's great that it takes you to amatitan to see tequila herradura, which in my opinion is the best! great to have mariachis on the train and free flowing beer and tequila! a great show at lunch with singing, traditional dancing and mexican cowboys! highly recommended!

This is a great tour, especially for those who enjoy tequila. I had taken this tour about 10 years ago and really enjoyed it. I had first time visitors to Guadalajara traveling with me and knew that this would be a great tour to take them on.
It's not an inexpensive tour, about $100 per person, but to me it was well worth it.
The train itself is very clean and comfortable. You get all you can drink beverages, including beer, mixed tequila drinks in a can, tequila shots as well as non-alcoholic drinks for those who don't drink. You also get a small breakfast snack and juice when you first board and snacks to go with your drinks during the train ride to Tequila.
Once you arrive at the Herradura plant you take a short tour of how tequila was and is processed. You are offered a cold beverage during your tour. When the tour is over, you are led to a covered patio where the Mexican buffet is served. The food was excellent. While you're dining, there is entertainment on the stage for you to enjoy. Definitely a great time.
