What people are saying about Oaxaca de Juarez

We had the most amazing time on this tour. We were taken to 3 mezcal factories of different sizes and got many tastings of mezcal. I didn't keep count but it was easily over 10. Our favorite part was the ride through the agave fields where we got to drink mezcal from a maguey leaf. We had already done 5 mezcal tastings at various mezcalerias in Oaxaca before going on this tour. I wish we had done this tour first as we learned quite a bit about mezcal. We would have appreciated all that mezcal even more. Highly recommended!

It was an amazing day. Meplorer and our guide, Edd were terrific. Not only did we taste a lot of Mezcal, but the tour was also very informative and educational. We tried 3 different Mezcal establishments - all different sizes which was great. We also had a wonderful lunch stop. Edd was extremely interesting and our driver was also great. The day was filled with laughs. I highly recommend this tour if you want to learn and taste Mezcal.

A complete and very comprehensive path on all Mezcal processing processes, from cultivation in the fields to final production. Personally I found the stop at Don Agave really interesting where Angel also explained in a pertinent way how to do a real tasting. Super recommended tour!

Alberto was awesome! Very informative, friendly and funny, in English and Spanish
