    What to Expect
    Your tour will begin with pick-up at your hotel at 10am. You'll head out of the city and spend the day visiting some traditional distilleries, to learn all about the mezcal-making process and meet some producers.

    Your guide will take you to a few different distilleries and meanwhile give you a rich understanding of mezcal and its production. Learn the difference between the varying agaves used to produce mezcal and taste the differences from distillery to distillery. Inside the distilleries, you will experience the passion and pride that each mezcal producer takes in their specific methods of producing the spirit. You'll understand the process from cutting the agaves in the field to the final product leaving the still. At each stop you'll have the opportunity to try the mezcales produced there and discuss the difference in their unique flavors. In between distillery hopping, you'll stop for a traditional lunch where you can try some delicious Oaxacan cuisine.

    After your last tasting, your tour will end with hotel drop-off around 6pm.

    Dear SuzMcQ, I'm very sorry you had such a disappointing experience. I've looked into what happened (ten months ago), and see that you made a reservation for November 2 (Day of the Dead - possibly _the_ biggest day of the year in Oaxaca) on November...More

    With this tour we were looking to visit traditional small scale producers who would have amazing mezcal to drink and purchase. It was that and much more. First off, making arrangements with the office was easy. Then, at the appointed time our guide, Dari, picked...More

    The all day tour back into the hills and valleys of Oaxaca was fantastic. Dari, our driver and guide, shared with us so much of his knowledge about the plants, herbs, mezcal making, and the people. We were fascinated to see two artisan palenques where...More

    My wife and I went with the ExperienceMezcal private tour. Our guide was Dari, a local, experienced mezcal expert who is well known to the mezcal producers. We went to small artisanal grower/producers of mezcal, not the large industrial producers. Our tour was about 5...More
