A first class train travels to the land of Tequila leaving from the Guadalajara train station every Saturday morning. It's a grand touristic adventure, filled with thrills for the whole family with Mariachi, tequila and beer on board, as well as expert guides who take the time to explain the route and talk about the Hacienda de San Josel Refugio, where Tequila Herradura is manufactured. Once there, guides lead a tour through the museum, showing how Tequila was made by past artisans, as well as the modern processes. After the tour, a traditional Mexican lunch is sponsored, with live acts displaying traditional dances and songs from the region. The train returns back to Guadalajara during the evening. Prices are MXN770 for adults; MXN400 for children under 12; children under 5 travel for free.
We loved it,live music,lot's of information of the due process of this great drink,great food,and of course lots of tequila. I would highly recomend it to any one who is adventurous lives to eat and drink tequila.
If you travel to Guadalajara you should not miss this tour! Highly recommended. The train ride is fun with beautiful scenery of the Tequila region, where the famous beverage was born. The visit to the Hacienda and the food and entertainment are excellent!
My girlfriends, and I "loved" everything in the Tequila Express. It was utterly fantastic. Nine and a half hours of laughter, dancing, tasty tequila, and wonderful authentic Mexican food. We are definately going to do this again. We did not get enough of the Marachi and the outrageous, crazy atmosphere of the train and the hacienda.. Pure fun, entertainment, and beautiful memories!!!!
The train chugged along slower than I expected, but that just gave you more time to get lubed up! The train cars were designated by color to assist in the "competition" that came during the fiesta feast. Once we arrived each car disembarked in groups and the tour began. My favorite part was where we entered the ancient fermentation area with the wells in the floors where tequila stewed hundreds of years ago. Amazing. Every aspect of the distillation process was covered as you toured through very well maintained and lush grounds. It was incredible seeing all that agave piled up being loaded into the ovens.
The grand finale was the food and party which went on for hours with dancing, entertainment and relaxation. All you can eat and all you can drink! One the way back to Guadalajara you were allowed to drink up from the bottles of tequila you just bought... so buy alot! The train by the way was extremely clean and comfortable.
We took our children ages 5 and 8 and they enjoyed themselves as much as us... well, almost! A jumpy house was provided during the fiesta part, so the kids weren't bored.
For those of you who are scared to travel mexico this is absoulutely a tour you cannot miss... Tequilla Express tour takes you back to deep inside of Mexico roots it will be so educational and a tour you will never stop talking about !!! The people there are so nice...
