You’ll visit a famous tequila distillery and witness the process of making this famous drink, fermented from the region’s blue agave.

Along with a tequila tasting, dine on regional cuisine for lunch or dinner (depending on day or night option selected) and top it all off with a folkloric show. Enjoy personal attention from your guide on this small-group tour, limited to 13 people.

After hotel pickup in Guadalajara around 8:15am or 6pm (depending on which option you select), you’ll be transferred to the railway station. Board the Tequila Express, a traditional Mexican train and one of the country’s only passenger trains still remaining in operation.

With your guide and small group, settle in for the journey to the town of Amatitan. Located in the state of Jalisco, it's the only region in the country where tequila production is allowed. (See a full description of your day or night tour below)
