Welcome to Jalisco - land of most Mexican traditions, namely tequila and charreria! This is the perfect option for those seeking a truly authentic experience combining tequila learning & tasting with a little adventure.

 

Just as in our Original Tequila Tour, the tour includes a visit to two (2) smaller family-run distilleries with a long standing tradition of producing artisanal tequilas.

 

The added value is that you will enjoy horseback riding through the agave landscape and the town of Amatitan, referred by locals as the original birthplace of tequila although not officially recognized as such.

 

You will have plenty of opportunities to stop and take beautiful photos of the surrounding nature. The tour departs from a former hacienda and includes typical Mexican refreshments and light snack prepared when finishing the activity.

 

 

 

The horses are responsive to any level of rider, therefore all are welcome – from beginner to more experienced.  Please refer to the requirements section for further information.
