Mezcal Day Tours

Mezcal Day Tours

You want to learn more about mezcal, right at the source. You’ve got one or two days, and you’re staying in or near Oaxaca City. You aren’t tempted by the massive bus tours that hustle you to and from multiple destinations crammed into one day. We designed these fun, educational, single day experiences specifically for mezcal lovers in your situation.

Our local guide Darinel knows mezcal inside and out, is bilingual, and was born and raised in Oaxaca. His knowledge, passion, and friendliness are second to none. Since this is your private tour, your custom requests are most welcome. Our private mezcal day tours visit at least two artisanal mezcal distilleries (“palenques”) that are chosen just before your tour to maximize your exposure to active mezcal production and a wide variety of mezcal tasting. In addition to a delicious, traditional Oaxacan lunch, there will generally be some surprises along the way, and if you’re lucky, you may learn some of Dari’s secret mezcal spots.

Have more than a day or two? Looking for something more in-depth? Check out our 4-Day Mezcal Tours or our custom Private Mezcal Tours.
