¨This was really fun! A great mix of locals and tourists. English and Spanish commentary. A liesurly 1 and 1/2 hour ride. Comfy seats that can be turned around for a group of four. There were 3 different tequila selections, pre-mixed tequila drinks, margarita's and snacks...all included. The mariachis were VERY fun! The waiters were so good...you couldn't help but get smashed :) We only took the train up to Hurradura, so I can'tcomment on the way back. I would recommend this trip to anyone...well that's if they are over 21 :)¨
¨This was definitely a highlight of our time in Guadalajara. The lunch and fiesta with dancing and live music was an amazing experience. You might think that this would be a big drunkfest, but that wasn't the case at all. Yes, everyone enjoyed different tequila beverages and beer (I'd suggest waiting until after the tour to start drinking as it's quite a long day.) But it's more of a family atmosphere than a party one, and I didn't see anyone that was "baracho." I learned a lot about the making and culture around tequila, the distillery was beautiful, the hosts were friendly and smart, and the people were a joy. SO fun! ¨
