Know More about this tour

After picking you up at your hotel/cruise ship, you will head north of Mazatlan to visit the village La Noria, where you will see the local activities being done the old fashion way, leather belts and leather sandals being handmade, small coconut purses and a variety of souvenirs all made while you watch, wooden horse saddles being carved by hand and a local artist working the pottery.

Not far from this village is La Vinata where you will drive through acres and acres of the blue agave plantation to arrive to the tequila distillery where you will be briefed on the ancient and current process of producing tequila. This tequila factory is unique because it maintains its old equipment that was used in the 1800's for you to witness both processes, and then to sample their product. From here it's off to the charming village of El Quelite one of the most picturesque towns in the area with the colorful houses, cobblestone streets red roofs and relaxing environment. This town is known for its cock farm where you can see the roosters first hand, with a stop at the local bakery with an adobe brick oven offering freshly baked pastries.

Then it's time to head back to the center of the village El Quelite where you can enjoy a delicious local lunch, then wander a bit around the plaza and church before heading back to Mazatlan. This tour is highly recommended to enjoy the beautiful sights and to learn about a lot of the culture and history in this area of Mexico, comfortably in your private van/suburban.

    5 of us took this private van tour on 9/27. Really looking forward to going to El Quelite so we could eat at the amazing restaurant they have in El Quelite. That's the main reason we even booked this tour. Once we got in the van, the driver told us we would not be going to El Quelite because the bridge on the road to El Quelite was out, had been out for quite a while and they didn't know when the bridge would be fixed. He said the only other way to get there was rough dirt roads way out of the way. We did the other two villages, the tequila tour then back to Mazatlan for lunch. Before you book this tour make sure the bridge to El Quelite is fixed.

    We had a great tour with Jose! He was very personable and shared a lot of interesting information about the region. We loved the town of El Quelite and the lunch was amazing! I went with my family including a toddler and everyone enjoyed the trip. Would highly recommend.

    Had a wonderful tour on our Princess Cruise. Carlos was an excellent tour guide. He was personable, educated about the area, and enjoyable companion for the day. Would highly recommend to anyone on a cruise and looking to do just a little more than walk around the cruise port. Great value.

    We were a family of 6 (ages 2.5 to 71) and Carlos our tour guide was amazing and accommodating to us all day! We loved the leather shop (if you have young coco fans they will love it) and the interactive ceramics demo was one of my favorites of our whole trip. Bring extra bags for your purchases! The pickup was easy and everything was safe and smooth. I loved the agave plantation and have never seen so many butterflies. An unexpected highlight was seeing the marker for the Tropic of Cancer and the restaurant food was simply Devine. Thank you Carlos for an amazing day!! I would highly recommend this trip to cruisers looking to get out of Mazatlan for the day. Some reviews of the port are not so favorable but this trip exceed our expectations for sure.

    Jorge was an excellent guide. He knows the history of Mazatalan and all of the villages we visited. He is a wealth of knowledge. The van was very comfortable with great air conditioning. We loved the Tequila Distillery tour with the tastings and the old machinery. It was a very picturesque setting. El Quelite was a charming town and we had a lovely lunch on a beautiful patio. We even stopped at the Tropic of Cancer for photos. A visit to the small candy factory, a one man pottery shop and two leather stores enhanced the trip.

    Our tour guide shared very detailed and interesting information about La Noria, the Tequila Factory, and El Quelite. Rene was very knowledgeable and he accommodated all of our special requests and needs throughout the tour. We appreciated meeting and observing many of the local tradespeople at work in their craft. Daniel's Restaurant was selected for lunch and it was an excellent choice. We highly recommend taking this tour when in Mazatlan!
