Overview
Highlights
    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.

    I booked a mezcal trip with this company and they cancelled on us last minute. It was Day of the Dead so there were no other companies with availability. So We missed the tour all together. It was very disappointing as that was a huge item on outmr list of things to do. Then

    Response from ExperienceTequila, Owner at Private Tour: Mezcal Day Tour in Oaxaca
    Responded 7 Aug 2019
    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 1. Six hours after you made your reservation, we informed you that we did not in fact have any more space on the tour. We offered you a tour on November 3, which you declined. At that time, we immediately began processing your refund. The amount of time a refund takes to make it back to your account depends on many factors, including your bank's policies. Card refunds - whether from Experience Mezcal or from a giant like Amazon.com - can take as long as 14 days. Again, I'm sorry to have disappointed you. I take such rare incidents very seriously. Our seven years in business and the body of our TripAdvisor reviews indicate that they are, in fact, rare. It's a shame you decided, ten months later, to leave us a malicious one-star review. But that's certainly your right. I hope you are able to make it back to Oaxaca in the future. If you do so during Day of the Dead, Noche de Rábanos, or Güelagetza season, I would strongly encourage you to plan more than one day in advance. Sincerely yours, Clayton J. Szczech Owner/Founder Experience Mezcal

    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 my husband and

    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 mezcal was distilled and

    Dary took 4 of us through the mezcal fields to several distilleries and an amazing lunch at a roadside restaurant. He exceeded any expectations that we may have had. He took us to 3 mezcal distilleries, 2 of which we never would have been able to find on our own. We were the
