During this exciting 6-hour tour of the Mazatlan countryside you will step back in time as you observe the old ways in both lifestyle and work.

Your journey of discovery begins as you travel north of Mazatlan to La Noria, a colonial mountain village. This former mining outpost is now known for its beautiful traditional handicrafts. Watch as artisans fashion leather goods, small coconut purses and more products by hand.

Nearby is the charming village of La Vinata where you can take a special tour of Sinaloa's oldest tequila factory. Learn how agave is harvested and observe how tequila is made both the modern way and with machinery used since the 1800s. Don't leave without enjoying a sample or two of tequila!

Continue to El Quelite, a postcard-perfect example of the Mazatlan Ranchero lifestyle. Stroll along cobblestone streets lined with red-roofed colonial houses, then visit a cock farm with its entertaining roosters.

While here stop at a bakery for a delicious bite of pastry baked in an authentic adobe oven before making your way to a local restaurant to enjoy a typical rural lunch. Afterward, enjoy a walk around the plaza and pop into the local church before you end your day.

We stopped for lunch in a pretty little town. The restaurant looked unassuming from the outside of the building but opened up into a unexpected delight inside. Large, open and airy with chickens running around. The food was good and the portions generous. Definitely an experienced to be repeated.

Our tour guide, "Smiley," was wonderful! He was very knowledgeable and did a great job explaining the tequila factory process. We also had a wonderful journey to an artisan town and a great lunch on the way. We were only six people on the tour which made for a great experience.

Excellent guide with perfect English. Van was good and learned how tequila was made. Saw how Mexican leather sandals were made in small village. Lunch was great worth the extra money. More food than you could eat and beer included. Village was beautiful. Drive back along water was great

Reviewer: Dave Eklund
What a great tour. We were the only ones from our cruise ship with this tour guide, so we had a one-on-one super friendly, informative guide. Two tequila facilities and nothing but good times. The second location which had more history and the old school equipment still was much more interesting. Then we visited a local small village to have a super tasty lunch that was included with the tour.

This was a wonderful, tranquil tour, we never felt rushed, our tour guide was very well mannered and pleasant, also a very safe driver. Fantastic tequila, and what a beautiful little village. I would definitely recommend it, and absolutely going back with friends and family.
