    The best tour we have ever taken!
    We had a tour with Elizabeth on Monday, July 31. * SHE WAS AMAZING !! ** The best tour guide we have ever had anywhere! Her knowledge, her speaking skills, etc., were outstanding. To speak and explain for how long she did without stuttering, with such clarity, is something you might normally find in a Broadway production. The tequila tastings were excellent. But it was Elizabeth who made the entire experience as wonderful as it was and inspired us to schedule a return visit,

    Always worth a visit. Had a great time with our guide Lupita.
    This time we chose the Maestro Dobel Blending Experience. As always detailed explanations during the distillery tour. We had a fun time with our guide Lupita during the tasting (cata expertin) and the blending of our own tequila. Totally recommend and we will for sure come back to try the chocolate experience.

    The story of Mexico's elixir from the Gods.
    This is one of the best tours I have experienced. We learned so much about the history of Mexico and Tequila (the city and the beverage). The opportunity to taste as we learned the distinguishing features of several tequilas was eye opening. And the guide ensured we saw all that goes into the making of this unique liquor only made in this region, yet enjoyed around the world. Big takeaway? The Jose Cuervo we grew up with was only intended for mixed drinks, and guarantees a headache for those deciding to drink it in shots.

We spent 4 hours at the Jose Cuervo distillery learning all about the distilling process, tasting different tequilas, learning how to drink tequila, blending our own tequila and, finally, lunch. Alfredo, our guide, also took us through Jose Cuervo’s and tequila’s history as well as the controls around the whole agave and tequila production process.

WOW.. I had THE best tour guide Diego. His passion for tequila is palatable. His English was excellent and I had the added benefit of being the only English guest so I had him all to myself. I opted to do the tequila tasting and Diego explained each step and demonstrated well.

Highly recommend this tour.

Esta fue nuestra primera vez en Tequila… y fue absolutamente inolvidable. Nuestro guía Alfredo Quezada nos dio información y nos entretuvo durante nuestra experiencia del tour. Aprendiendo de las orígenes de José cuervo y mirando el proceso con la orientación de Alfredo nos dio el conocimiento que nunca nos olvidaremos. Además podernos sentar y tomar tequila muy deliciosa nos puso a sonreír de oreja a oreja.Totalmente recomendados a todos los visitadores que tomen este tour en esta locación.

Otra vez, MUCHÍSIMAS GRACIAS ALFREDO

This was our first time at Tequila…and it was absolutely memorable. Our tour guide Alfredo Quezada gave us both an informative and entertaining experience. Learning about the origins of Jose Cuervo and watching the process with Alfredo’s guidance gave us knowledge we will never forget. Along with that, being able to sit down and engage in proper tequila tasting truly made us smile from ear to ear. Recommend all visitors to take a trip to this location!

Again, THANK YOU ALFREDO!!!

Enjoyed this tour a lot. I would get the extended tasting option. Please tip the guide. Offered in English several times a day. Not suitable for children who would be bored out of their minds.

I would definitely recommend doing the Tequila tour at the Jose Cuervo factory. They show you around and explain the whole process of how Tequila is made. From making you taste a 170 proof Blanco to their Refined Blanco, followed by their Reposado. We did the extended Tasting which I would definitely recommend. They took us to their private tasting room, where they taught us the correct technique of sipping on tequila with the right pairings. We tried their Blanco, Reposado and finally the Reserve de la Familia (Anejo). A great experience overall!
