During the course of this tour, you will be surprised by discoveries that very few people know about this internationally famous drink. Like the fact that it didn’t originate in the “Pueblo Mágico” of Tequila!

We will give you an experience that is close to the earth and with the hand of man. You will learn how the Agave Azul Tequilana Weber grows, why the denomination of origin of Tequila was established, the growth process of this amazing plant, its cultivation, and something you would not have the opportunity to see on a traditional tour: the landscape of agaves in the great canyons of the Sierra Madre Occidental which is protected as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

You will visit a distillery which uses traditional processes, right in the middle of blue-green fields. There you can see firsthand how the three types of Tequila are manufactured and you will taste this distinctively delicious drink in a place off the beaten track.

You will have the experience of visiting the first museum of Tequila which is not in Tequila. Right there you can enter the only Qanat * (a type of underground aqueduct) in the area and enjoy a splendid meal by the side of the ruins of Hacienda de Chimulco, an absolutely unforgettable experience.

With your input, we can custom design the trip just for you, so that the schedule and itinerary will match exactly your group’s unique needs and interests. Ideally, this is a tour for six people. Invite friends or family to make this an especially intimate and cozy experience. Let us know, however, if you are a larger group. We’ll be happy to accommodate more people when possible.

1. Visit to the works of world-renowned architect Luis Barragán in Amatitán and El Arenal.
2. Visit to the Ruins of the Tecuane Tavern
3. Visit to the Ruins of Hacienda Cofradía
