About :

Born to a mother from Jalostotitlán, Jalisco and a father from Yurécuaro, Michoacán, two municipalities listed on the classified denomination territory, it was only natural that love and passion for tequila would flow through my veins. Working as a chief of operations for an international marketing research firm allowed me to travel the country extensively before settling in Guadalajara. It was there, in the pearl of the Occident, that I could finally engage full time in my passion, which prompts me to say that since then, I have never “worked” another day in my life. I noticed a need for a tour that felt more personal and authentic (and less touristic!); a tour that I would like to go on myself if I were a visitor in this land.

"I couldn't imagine a better Tequila tour" There was only myself and a couple together with Fernando and a driver so it was a very personalised tour. Every question we asked Fernando was answered in great detail. I found the history...

"A day fine day out for your gustation and education!" As it was my girlfriends and mine first trip to Mexico we had thought that a guided tour through the making and history of the national beverage is a necesity before returning home. We should not be...

"Now I like Tequila! (I used to hate it)" I used to hate tequila because it made me sick in my previous years. I was a little apprehensive about doing a whole day of Tequila but Giancarlo, our excellent tour guide reassured that I will be...
