Had a wonderful time!
Sonya_B, Aug 2023
We had a blast learning the history of tequila. The tasting was smooth and each bottle got better and better. Felipe was very knowledgeable about tequila making and the history of tequila.

Communication prior to event was great w detailed instructions on finding location.
Orlando, our host, was awesome and very knowledgeable. Enjoyed this event
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Gracias, I wish you could have let us know why we couldn’t get a 5 star review out of you! Sounds like we did everything right…..

We enjoyed learning how tequilla is made. However, we were under the impression that we would get to experience a few different makers to taste the differences. It was only one manufacturer that was part of this tour.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
We feel a vertical flight ( all the same brand) is the best way to understand how the flavor profiles change as the aging in the barrel progresses from Blanco to Extra Añejo) , i suggest trying the Spirits of Mexico tasting next time ( 6 different spirits! , 5 brands) we have 7 different tastings to choose from! Thanks for the review!
Much more than I thought it would be

I learned so much!! Who knew you had to “open up” tequila? I would highly recommend. We even did a tequila tasting for our friends when we got home and they were fascinated.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We are so glad to hear you are spreading the knowledge! Thanks for the review!
Informational tour but tequila is poor quality
Utkarsh_S, Nov 2022
The tour was mostly through photos showing how agave is harvested and tequila is made. So it was moderately informational but the actual tequila was pretty poor. Just anywhere in PV you’ll get much better tequila. We did not enjoy the actual tastings and got a headache after.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
This is unfortunate to hear you did not enjoy the tequila. We only use the highest quality artisanal small batch spirits on our tastings. However, we all have different palates.
Tequila tasting that must be experienced
Justin_B, Oct 2022
What a cool experience. The tasting room is in an up-and-coming neighborhood, Versailles, tucked among a bunch of great restaurants, but the true highlight here is the tequila and the instruction about it. Tequila has a fascinating story, more akin to wine than many spirits and it was absolutely worth learning about (and enjoying)!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you! Wine is a great comparison! We are glad we could make your experience worth it! Thanks for the review!
Good for the tequila learner and drinker

Great tasting. This is actually a Mezcal tasting. I'm a tequila drinker and never even ventured to try Mezcal. I will now. The flavors and the smoky taste are great.

Our tequila tasting was fun and informative. We learned a lot about the history and production of tequila as well as tasting 4 different types. We learned new ways to pair tequila flavors with food flavors! We were the only people tasting, so we got a truly unique experience. Salut!

Outstanding job by Ricardo and Corrina! We did the Mezcal tasting, and it was amazing! The history lesson, the explanation of the process of making Mezcal, the patience of answering our questions was fantastic! Ricardo is a Tequila Master! Don't forget to ask him about his Food Tasting Tours! Next time we want a Ghost Tour Ricardo! Thanks again! Great Job!

JuliaMaria_G, Apr 2017
Amazing - over 2 hours learning about Tequila, how it is made and tasting the tequila. Pairing with some food - the pineapple was delicious!
Amusing and fun. A few laughs along the way.
In downtown Pureto Vallarta, so easy to get to by taxi, which are cheap.
Well worth doing this tour. I totally recommend.
This was an awesome experience...
Kim K, Apr 2017
This was an awesome experience. Loved the food pairings with the high end tequila. Great location in PV. The presenters were knowledgeable and fun. Unfortunately my very well wrapped body of resposado broke on the last leg of our trip in a hard case suitcase thanks to movement by customs and harsh treatment by baggage handlers - next time I will bring a box. Also pay pal made a mistake and sent me a text saying my account had been charged in dollars - Corrina was very quick to communicate with me and put my fears to rest. I would highly recommend this - this isn't your commercial tequila and I learned a lot. Thank you for this experience.
Response from Host, Apr 2019
Boooo baggage handlers! You will have to come back soon and replace your bottle. Thanks for the review!
