From Guadalajara we took a day trip out to Tequila, the home of tequila. Tours run about 100 Pesos (8 or so dollars), and they all seem to be about the same. See the distillation plant, see the aging kegs, and have a few shots. You might also get to see the blue aguave fields used to make the liquor. In my opinion, the tours aren't really worth it. It's a nice little town, which is well worth visiting, but don't bother with a tour. Just head to a local cantina had have a few shots. And pick up a bottle at one of the many liquor stores in town.
