Arturo, our tour guide, even made this trip so Magical...me and my boyfriend got ENGAGED!
Such a beautiful , unforgettable experience. Thank you so very much.
All around fantastic tour! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and did the tour in both English and Spanish which was extremely helpful to everyone on the bus. All three distilleries were unique in their own way, the town of tequila is a site to behold in itself, and the lunch provided was fantastic! I highly recommend this to anyone interested in tequila, history, or both!
We had a great time on this tour. We originally wanted to take the tequila train, but it was booked up, so we opted for this tour. Honestly I think it was better. We arrived at the hacienda before the mob on the train, and felt as though we were getting a private tour. Our guide took us the a fantastic underground restaurant for lunch. Our guide couldnt have been nicer or more knowledgeable. I think it worked out for the better. We had a great time, and it was quite a bit less expensive. I would recommend it to everyone.
We definitely enjoyed this tour. We were picked up on time at our hotel and proceeded to pick-up other passengers as we headed out of town. The City Tour of Tequila was interesting, the Tour Guides were informative and entertaining. We chose the Sunday tour because of other reviews we had read mentioning a buffet and the venue where it was offered. We were not disappointed, the venue was great and the food was very good.
Overall, the day was well spent and if someone has never experienced a Tequila Tour then this is money well spent.
If you have time this is a must! Aurturo was our guide and was very knowledgeable about every where he took us. Lots of great history and lots of great things to do! Arturo made our trip very enjoyable, smooth and he was very attentive.
FUN! FUN! FUN! This tour is amazing. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to everyone. Guide Arturo is fantastic. He speaks English and is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We first toured Casa Herradura and it is amazing. The tour included a Jimador demonstrating how they cut and shape the agave, a taste of the raw and roasted agave and concluded with a generous tequila tasting. The museum on the property is really fascinating. We then went to Tequila town and visited Sauza and Reyes Barajas. The town is pretty and quaint. We finished up at Tequila Cofradia for lunch in the Taverna. The restaurant is stunningly beautiful and the food was excellent... buffet all you can eat. The ceramics in the Cofradia gift shop are also stunning and beautiful. We took advantage of a great sale on tequila also.. made with the ceramic bottles is beautiful shapes and colors. If you are on the fence, dont be .. you will have a great time. .. see pics below.
This weather an amazing tour. We learned the history of and how tequila is made. We also discovered how to choose and consume tequila properly. Our guide Arturo and driver Manuel were knowledgeable and fun to tour with.
Would definitely recommend booking this tour! Everything was organized very well, and it was a fun/educational full day experience! They pick you up at the hotel and take care of you throughout the many stops. We did the option of a horseback ride through the agave fields which was beautiful, it is good to know that you won't be getting the tour of the second tequila factory but there is still time to explore the actual town of Tequila.
This all-inclusive tour was great - it was filled with so many fun activities and had snacks and drinks in the van. I personally did not get physically tired since we had comfortable transportation to each site. Our tour guide Arturo was knowledgeable and kind. Muchas gracias, Arturo! Nos la pasamos muy muy bien.
I highly recommend this tour! My husband and I were picked up directly from our hotel, toured the beautiful Casa Herradura, the town of tequila, and had lunch in a beautiful underground restaurant. We had an English speaking guide who was very knowledgeable and friendly. Three different tequila tastings! This was a great way to spend the day, see beautiful sights, and drink tequila!
Overall we loved it a lot. We were expecting to be part of a tour group on a bus but we ended up being just the two of us plus our tour guide. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and we drove directly to Casa Herradura in Amatitlan. It was just as beautiful and interesting as the pictures on the website. My only complaint would be the entire tour was in Spanish so given my limited intermediate level understanding of the language, I really didn't get as much out of it as I would have liked. Normally I wouldn't have said anything because I was in Mexico, but we were given the option to choose the tour in English or Spanish so I was disappointed about this. The hacienda tour was separate from different tour guide from the rest of the tour so I'm still giving 5 stars because we had such a good time. Then we went to the town of Tequila and met the horses in the central square and rode them all the way to La Cofradia for lunch and more tequila tasting. It was really quite magical and the views were amazing. My horse got spooked by some dogs and started running through the town on our way to the agave fields, but looking back it added to the adventure and the tour guides did a good job getting the situation under control! Overall we loved it would do it again and recommend to others.
Highly recommended tour. Excelent Service and overall experiencia. Arturo was with us during the day. Aventurate por Jalisco, have very interesting activities.
Amazing tour and Service!
The HERRADURA TEQUILA Distillery tour was beautiful and informative. The driver, Luis Manuel and the guide never really got her name did the minimum. Not very informative and what little information they did provide was not always accurate. But for a way to get from point A to point B, they did their job. The restaurant at the end before heading back to Guadalajara, La Tavernaa del Cofredor was worth the price of the tour all by itself!
