Our local Panoramex Tour was booked using GetYourGuide app which did great for planning so short notice available trips on the Thursday evening just after arrival to Guadalajara. Picked this one for Friday cuz the Train Tours only run Saturday. The guide Hector with driver Oscar arrived Friday morning to our hotel 10 min before the scheduled time 0935am in a 20 passenger Black Mercedes van. Fortunately we(4) were the first pick up to pick seats since the whole van filled up. Our guides did a great job to keep us informed & on time. First stop was a local family owned distillery Tequila Selecto de Amatitán tour with fun presentation & samples then off to experience the Cantaritos CheChe Margaritas but not my favorite (cuz made with Squirt) and continue drive to town of Tequila. At the time of booking there was an option to add on extra tour of Jose Cuervo OR Sauza distilleries which was not available to purchase the day of tour. Glad we added JC tour! Great lunch recommendations too!

I want to recommend the tequila tour... From the time they picked me up at the meeting point, until they returned, my experience was very pleasant. The lady guide who sent us (Carmen) very friendly, nice, pleasant and always attentive to us. I hope to have another tour to another destination with the same attention.

Great all around, Edgar and Jesus were the best! I’d take anything with them. It was easy and easy communication.

Hector was an informative, helpful and personable tour guide. We had a great day!

Aurturo fue un guía excelente!! Se sabe su historia y sus dichos.
