“Great no brainer day trip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Many options to visit Tequila for tours...vans etc. The Train was a great experience! A little pricey: $100 USD per person. Book online. But, it is all inclusive! Mixed tequila drinks on the train or tastings of various tequilas on the train. Mariachis before, during and after. Good Mexican buffet...tacos and salad bar. Again, unlimited beverage options. The highlight however, is a tour of the Casa Herradura distillery. Very educational and interactive tour of the facilities and Tequila making process. The guides will ensure you are matched with an English speaking tour guide if you desire. There is a bit of a cattle call element to the transportation aspect as there were 5 cars fully loaded...so, patience is a virtue . Other than that; relax imbibe and enjoy the ride! Full day trip...

“best drinking tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

amazing tour, definitely a must in Guadalajara. we took the train from Jose Cuervo, fully recommended, they provide all day tequila of the best quality and give you a lesson on tasting and knowing how to properly drink it.

The tour of the process is very interesting and after you get a great show of local dances and good food.

“Very Interesting and Well Worth the Trip !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Plan all day for your tour ! It was great - between the bands, the entertaining tour guides, as much tequila as you wanted. The tour of the facility was very informative and well done and organized well. After that was a buffet with more "refreshments" as well as entertainment for a couple of hours. Then it was back on the train for more entertainment and refreshments. Highly recommend !

“Interesting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

This was a full day excursion, well organized and operated with professional hosts. The train ride was interesting in a sightseeing way. Considering Guadalajara is such a large conglomerate of municipalities, it took appx 1 1/2 hrs of the 2 1/2 hrs just to get out of the city. During the ride the hosts determined who required an English speaking tour of the interesting Tequila facilities and hustled us off the various train cars together as a group.

In all fairness, it probably would be more enjoyable to enjoy this sort of tour as part of a larger group. However just observing the Mexicans having such fun, laughing and hooting (we Canadians must seem pretty drab and boring to them LOL!) was an added side entertainment, although not entirely unexpected.

“AWESOME Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

This was such a fun trip that my boyfriend and I took when vising GDL. The process was so simple! Cab to train station, present ID & Credit Card, and pick up the passes we'd purchased online. From there you waitch a mariachi performace and board a train through beautiful countryside to the town of Tequila. On the train, unlimited drinks and entertainment are provided by excellent servers and hosts who accompany the group throughout the entire trip!

The tour for English speakers was great, the Herradura factory is so cool, and the lunch and entertainment that followed was so much fun!

It is NOT a cheesy tour. You're drinking, dancing and having a great time.

I loved it and would definitely do it again!
