What people are saying about Tequila

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.

The truth was a very nice experience we shared with other people. The group was very pleasant, the part that we liked the most was that they took us through the artisan process. Super recommended!
