Even though the we booked the experience night before and the was a little confusion with it, the gentlemen at the arena (Jorge and Emanuel) ensured that we had amazing time. We could not recommend it more... The attention for detail, the history of charros, the horse riding and lasso throwing, Jorges singing, erything was simply spectacular... one in a life time experience

Wonderful! We’ve been coming to Guadalajara for over 30 years and this was one of the most enjoyable and informative activities we’ve had. The guides were very friendly, knowledgeable, and proud of their country. We loved every minute! Mil Gracias!

Amazing! I learned so much about this Mexican tradition. I was blown away by the love, dedication and pride of the charros. The guides were eager to share their knowledge. I definitely recommend this tour. I will do it again!

This was certainly a unexpected most amazing tour. Jorge was full of interesting facts to help us get to know the Mexican Charros and show us how important this tradition is. Extremely fun activity, I highly recommend it.

A must to understand a part of mexican culture and tradition. Very complete, involving history, technique and experience. Jorge was an amazing guide with great storytelling, professionalism and kindness.
