Emerge early and depart from your Guadalajara hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Journey to the local railway station and climb aboard the Tequila Express, one of the few traditional Mexican passenger trains remaining in operation. Sink back into your seat and enjoy the spectacular scenery that sails past on the way to Amatitan, a small and traditional town located in the heart of Jalisco.
Catch a rare glimpse of bounteous blue agave fields before arriving into the station. Transfer by comfortable coach to Casa Herradura, Casa Jose Cuervo or Casa Cofradia (depending on the day).
Enjoy an intimate and intriguing tour through the distillery and its magnificent museum, gaining insight into production processes and the cultural significance of tequila. Hear tales of how the delicious drink was invented, and how Spanish conquerors distilled succulent blue agave bulbs to create tequila.
Next, feast upon an authentic Mexican lunch of sublime local specialities; taste tequila then complete your cultural experience with a fabulous folkloric show. Listen to energizing Mexican mariachi music and watch locals dance in traditional costumes. Relax during the journey back to Guadalajara, sinking into the comfortable seat of the train and minivan.
