YOUR GROUP. YOUR PACE. YOUR SCHEDULE. NO SHARING.
The private version offers you: exclusive visit to different distilleries than the ones visited on the group tour, more flexibility, personalized attention, no waiting on the rest of the group and a schedule tailored to your needs.
This tour is ideal for couples and small groups of friends, family and co-workers. Wedding Anniversary, honeymoon, birthday, bachelor(ette) party - whatever your reason to celebrate, we can help make your special occasion even more memorable!
Both distilleries visited are family-owned and have long standing tradition of producing tequila; one was established in 1904. Once in a while, you may have the chance to meet the producers or distillery owners and exchange with them.
The Tour is all-yours: photo stops, breaks and return time are at your convenience. Most importantly, you have the guide’s full attention; there’s no “sharing” with other people!
Unlike the group tour, we come directly for you and head straight to the first stop - you do not have to wait for the rest of the participants to be picked up. You can also start the tour from Tequila.
Prices as follows for the Private Tour Version :
Adult $200 USD
Senior $155 USD
Youth (13-17) $105 USD
Infant (6-12) $75 USD
** A MINIMUM OF 2 PARTICIPANTS IS REQUIRED**
