Valley of Tequila Four Day Experience

Valley of Tequila Map

A comprehensive introduction to tequila country and the rich history of tequila through cultural immersion—in a seriously fun and engaging package.

This experience is designed for tequila aficionados, the tequila-curious, lovers of Mexico, as well as their family and friends who may not know they love tequila yet! Taste some of the best tequila in the world, get to know the blue agave up close, visit distilleries both historic and new, from modern to artisanal, and enjoy the highlights of colonial Tlaquepaque.

Our Valley of Tequila tour is designed to expose you to a range of tequila-production methods—from the most traditional and artisanal in the entire industry, to more modern facilities where efficiency and quality are found in balance. We enjoy unfettered, insider access to each distillery. You will touch, smell and taste all facets of tequila production.

Our expert team will lead you through the birthplace of the tequila tradition: from breathtaking fields of blue agave, into the picturesque villages of Tequila, Amatitán, and El Arenal, to the foot of the dormant Tequila volcano, and behind the scenes at some of the best distilleries in the world. You will explore the region through the people, food, music, and the deep folk knowledge behind tequila—a truly unforgettable cultural experience.


A professional bilingual team

You’ll have a driver, a hospitality specialist, and a tour leader who is an expert in all things tequila. You will be cared for and have all aspects of tequila production, tasting, culture, history, Jalisco, and Mexico illuminated for you by enthusiastic professionals who live and breathe tequila and Mexico.

Four tequila distillery visits and tastings

We vary our itineraries to maximize our guests’ exposure to active tequila production. The four distilleries are chosen with an eye toward a diversity of production methods, flavor profiles, and family histories. We enjoy privileged access to distilleries that are not open to the public. Frequent destinations include Fortaleza (NOM 1493), Cascahuín (NOM 1123), La Tequileña (NOM 1146), Arette (NOM 1109), Las Américas (NOM 1480), and Familia Landeros (NOM 1599).

Traditional Jaliscan Meals

We have long-standing partnerships with trusted restaurants serving typical regional fare, as well as contemporary Mexican cuisine. Our itineraries feature both elegant restaurants and humble neighborhood eateries. Guests rave about the food, and did we mention there’s fresh guacamole at pretty much every meal?

Boutique hotel accomodations

We’ll stay in Tlaquepaque (nights one and three) and Tequila (night two). We have long-standing partnerships with beautiful, cozy hotels whose standards are as high as ours. Both hotels have a bar, restaurant, pool, and comfortable air-conditioned rooms with amenities.

Drinks at renowned tequila bars

Enjoy both Tlaquepaque’s famed Parián (the mariachi capital of the world), and traditional cantaritos in Tequila .

Free time to explore and shop

Explore the colonial centers of Tlaquepaque and Tequila or just lounge by the pool.

Tour FAQs

All our multi-day and custom tequila tours begin with a driver who meets you as you exit customs at Guadalajara’s Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport (GDL) and transports you to the hotel. Your tour also includes drop-off back at the airport at the end of the experience.

Our four-day, three-night tours spend nights one and three at the same Tlaquepaque hotel, and night two in Tequila or the Highlands. While a daily check-out isn’t ideal, this is a deliberate choice to minimize time spent in the van and maximize time spent experiencing tequila! Each morning, we ask that you have your luggage packed and ready to be loaded into the van when you come to breakfast. Most guests don’t need all their stuff with them, and are more than welcome to leave luggage at the Tlaquepaque hotel when we depart on day two. It will be kept locked up and be waiting for you when we return at the end of day three.

Dress in comfortable clothes and good walking shoes. We strongly discourage sandals, cowboy boots and heels during the day. We will be at high elevation with lots of sun, so bring a hat and plenty of sunscreen. Plan for warm days and cool nights – you’ll want a light jacket, sweater or wrap for nighttime. In general, Mexicans dress more formally than North Americans. You may want to bring one nicer outfit for going out at night.

Jalisco is warm and dry most of the year. We tend to avoid scheduling experiences during the rainy season (June-early September), which features near daily thunderstorms. However, climate change is a reality in Mexico and the weather is increasingly unpredictable. We recommend bringing a light jacket just in case. May is the hottest month of the year in Jalisco, and January is the coolest. Expect daytime highs between 80-90 F (27-32 C) in Guadalajara, and overnight lows between 45-60 F (7-15 C). Add as much as 10 F for daytime highs in the Tequila Valley, and subtract as much as 10F for overnight lows in the Highlands.

Since our guests come from various time zones, day four is essentially just a departure day. Breakfast on day four is included, but there are no other formal activities on the itinerary. Feel free to book your departure flight as early as needed. On the other hand, we’re also happy to make recommendations for extra hours or days in and around Guadalajara.
