Full description
Admire the UNESCO World Heritage-listed agave fields of Jalisco on a full-day tequila tasting tour from Guadalajara, traveling by comfortable minivan. Drive into the countryside of Mexico’s renowned tequila-producing region for a tour and tasting at one of the most famous tequila distilleries in the world. Pass the agave fields en route from Guadalajara. Then, learn about the fermentation process and enjoy a taste of this national drink after exploring the town of Tequila with your guide. During the 1-hour drive to Tequila, stop to admire mountain vistas and the fields of agave azul (blue agave), the succulent plant used to make tequila, Mexico’s national drink. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, these blue-green patches of agave plants blend beautifully with the earth tones in the natural landscape. Stop for lunch (own expense) in Tequila, before heading to the nearby town of Amatitlan for your tasting at a distillery. Learn about past and present-day tequila production techniques. Discover tequila’s indigenous origins and the Spanish who distilled the beverage into the tequila known today. Watch the modern fermentation and distillation process of blue Weber agave, before a tasting of several different types of tequila aged in oak casks. A master tequilier will guide you through the different aromas and flavors. By the end of the tour you will feel like a tequila connoisseur!

The app was unclear and in the end I paid more than the others for the same trip. More clarity is needed. Also it was very expensive for what we got.
