Know More about this tour

Your guide will pick you up by minivan at your hotel and take you to Guadalajara’s historical downtown to begin your city sightseeing tour. Stop at the Plaza de Armas, home to the Guadalajara’s twin-towered cathedral. One of the city’s most magnificent landmarks, the cathedral boasts a richly decorated interior with gold-leaf pillars, Gothic vaults and a stained-glass window of the Last Supper.
Head to nearby Liberation Square, which takes up two whole city blocks filled with beautiful colonial buildings. At the Instituto Cultural de Cabanas, where drama, dance and music is performed, you’ll see another example of Guadalajara's stunning architecture, including a popular museum that houses modernist murals. Admire the neoclassical design of the Degollado Theater before continuing to the Plaza de la Rotonda, located on the north side of the cathedral. Here, your guide will tell your group about the Rotonda de los Jaliscienses Illustres (Rotunda of the Illustrious People of Jalisco), a circular monument of 20 bronze sculptures honoring Jalisco's best-known architects, writer, composers and scientists.
Afterward, walk with your guide through Mercado Libertad, also known as Mercado San Juan de Dios, one of Mexico’s biggest traditional markets. You’ll see local vendors selling everything from produce, traditional candies and flowers to rugs, clothing and leather goods at more than 2,600 stalls.
Then, drive to Tlaquepaque, a small colonial village just 4 miles (7 km) southeast of downtown Guadalajara. Enjoy free time strolling the narrow cobblestone streets and admire the beautiful architecture or purchase a traditional meal and delicious drink for lunch (own expense). You'll have a chance to walk around one of Tlaquepaque's arts and crafts markets, where you can find Mexican wood carvings, ceramics, pottery and leather items, before your guide returns you to your hotel in Guadalajara.

  • Really really informative tour.

  • Very informative had a great time driver was on time and very respectful almost had that one-on-one feeling! Definitely worth the price!

  • The our was personalized. The guide was friendly, funny, polite and extremely well informed.
    Highly recommended

  • The tour guide was a driver. He did not know about the history or anything that had to do with Guadalajara, besides driving around. Just pointed out at buildings, and that was it. We requested to let us do the walking by ourselves. We expected much more.

  • Was a great tour. Lots of info on local sites. Asahel and Edwardo were very helpful. Thanks. Jerry

  • Our guide, Ronny Hernandez, was just GREAT! First of all, he was beyond accommodating for a five-hour tour that was supposed to start at 10 am. We came in from New York via Mexico City, with a connection to Guadalajara. Our airline Delta was so awful that we were 5.5 hours late getting into Mexico City, and then they claimed they had no connecting flight to Guadalajara that evening. SO, we had to stay in Mexico City and fully expected to miss the Guadalajara tour we had paid for months earlier. We let the hotel know that we wouldn't be in until the next morning, and asked them to inform the tour guide Ronny that we couldn't make it. When the hotel told him what had happened, he actually offered to come by at noon, instead of 10 am. We were able to take the tour after all! The tour itself was wonderful, and so very informative. Ronny knows Mexican art and history inside and out. We visited all the key sights of both Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque. The two cities are very different, even though they are geographically very close, and both form part of greater Guadalajara. The car itself was extremely comfortable - and beautifully air conditioned. Ronny picked us up and dropped us off - gave us great tips for dinner that evening. We cannot thank him enough for all he showed us, taught us, and simply gave us - he loves Mexico in general, and greater Guadalajara in particular. This is a splendid way to spend the greater part of a day.

  • We had Rony and he was an amazing history buff. We saw all the beautiful churches and cathedrals and had an amazing lunch with all female Mariachis The food was amazing. Couldn't have been any better

  • It was only the guide and us on the tour but it was great. The guide was very good.

  • Did not plan to do so much walking. I was looking for a hop on hop off tour. Tour guide was very nice, however was fairly young man with not so much knowledge to share.
