About
Spend the night living experience of “Cantinas”, Mexican taverns that have a unique mix between the old and the modern, places full of culture and Mexican history. As a result of progress and industrialization in Mexico, the working class and the middle class emerged. Thanks to this, the cantinas emerged in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These places were generally located in neo-colonial buildings in the areas of trade and commerce of that time, what we now know as the historical center. On this tour, you will walk through the historic center and visit the “Cantinas” that are frequented by the Tapatíos (word for Guadalajara citizens). Enjoy drinks and snacks typical of the region. In the “Cantinas” there is no discrimination; They are well known for their friendly and lively atmosphere. During the tour, your local host will share the history, myths, and legends behind each place. An essential tour if you have a few days to discover Guadalajara.

Fernando was a great guide. He gave us history lessons, sightseeing advice and had great english conversation skills. He does a really good job getting people to understand the importance of traditional cantinas. He was even willing to walk us to our next destination after the tour.

Highly recommend

Great Tour...A history lesson with drinks!
Jul 2019 • Couples
My wife and I visited Guadalajara in July 2019. We signed up for this tour as we usually try to take tours like this within the cities we visit.

Fernando, our guide, was great. For those who don't speak Spanish very well, have no fear! He was able to give us the tour in English.

We had a great time on this tour. Fernando gave us a history lesson, of not only the bars we visited, but also the city and of Mexico. This ended up being a highlight of our trip. We would have walked right by these establishments if not for taking this tour.

I'm kinda surprised that there aren't more reviews. I'm not sure that Mexico utilizes TA as much as we do in the states. But feel free to email and ask any questions.
