Hi! Welcome to the OFFICIAL Tequila Tour from The Agave Experience. My name is Giancarlo Castañeda a Biologist and almost an Official Maestro Tequilero, from Guadalajara, Jalisco. Why booking this tour? Tequila is my passion, it became my work, my life, and my best friend. I´ve been surrounded by this beautiful drink since I was born, and always wanted to make my own. If you are looking for a deep understanding of Tequila and Mezcal this experience is for you, my goal is to provide you all the official information in order that you experience and learn the science, the passion, and the art that is behind our national drink in an easy and personalized way. I´m not just a tour guide with four years of experience doing tours, I´m a biologist who has been studying tequila for the last five years and now, making it in a small crafted distillery for the last months.

2nd Trip Was Even Better
Jun 2021
Just returned to Jalisco for another tour because we had so much fun last year with Giancarlo. I have been traveling in Mexico to learn more about agave distillates and with his educational background, technical expertise, and passion for education there is no better experience for a spirits enthusiast. A memorable experience that is a lot of fun and customized to the needs of each client - an absolute must for anyone looking to travel to Guadalajara/Jalisco.

Second to none Tequila experience
Jun 2021 • Friends
A group of 5 of us came down for a buddies trip and Giancarlo made it a truly special experience. Giancarlo took us to places only locals would know about and his passion for the country and everything Tequila were inspirational. If you are looking for a full service experience that are second to none then Giancarlo is the only choice for your trip.

Great tour!
We really enjoyed our day with our guide montse! She was wonderful. She had so much knowledge about tequila and was interesting to talk to. We started off going to a local place for tacos for breakfast which was very good and then did the tequila tour and tasting. These are heavy pours of tequila but you can always ask for less. After that we went to another distillery and then agave fields to take pictures. We went to the town of tequila where we had some time to walk around and then enjoyed a nice dinner and drinks. We then stopped at cantaritos el guero for a massive cantaritos! I don’t think this was part of the tour, just something our group asked to do. We had a great time and felt we really got to experience the local culture! Thanks for a great day!

So let’s start by saying that we had one of the best times that I have ever had on a activity during vacation. I am normally someone that does not go into activities on vacation but to my surprise I had a friend drag me and we had a wonderful time. Not only was Pedro friendly he was very knowledgeable about everything and he made sure that we had a good time. We looked up and got the best of work to do the tour with they were awesome.

Vote for Pedro
May 2021 • Couples
This tour was by far worth every penny paid. Pedro our tour guide was incredible/ friendly / professional. He is a master tequila smmolier and speaks great English. He picked me up at my hotel and then we went to a taco spot then we stopped at Cava de Oro for an in-depth tour of tequila from the plant to tasting and pairing (fruit, chocolate, coffee etc..). The staff at Cava De Oro were all super friendly (especially the beautiful girl who works in the gift shop). Their tequila is amazing too.

We then stopped at Tres Tonos and tasted tequila there as well. After that we headed out to the town of Tequila for lunch and drinks.

We ended the day by stopping at Cantaritos el Guero for more drinks and some dancing.

Best part of the trip was the tour guide Pedro and his dedication to not only his craft of tequila, but to excellent customer service

Wonderful Tour!
Just a few months after moving to Guadalajara, my parents came to visit me and explore the area. We wanted to do a tequila tour, and seeing a more small-group option piqued our interest. And we were not disappointed! The tour was fun and informative. Giancarlo and his fellow guides were so nice and enjoyable to be around. They made the experience even better. Even though there were restrictions because of COVID-19, they still made it a great (and safe) experience. We would highly recommend this tour!
