Guadalajara City Tours
Guadalajara is Mexico’s 2nd city and capital of the state of Jalisco. It is home to over 5 million people (2018) and is a city rich in culture, craft, food, production and history, including being credited as the birthplace of mariachi music.
Sip on tequila, eat tortas ahogadas with the locals; watch a folkloric dance performance on one of the many plazas; or shop until you heart is content in Tonalá. Finish off your day with dinner in one of the many world class restaurants. Guadalajara is a city of successful compromise between new and old, right on our doorstep!
We offer a selection of trips to the city, from overnight shopping trips and concerts, to 3 day cultural tours including the city’s most famous places and some of the amazing surrounding area’s highlights such as Tequila, Magdalena & Guachimontones archaeological site.
Overnight Shopping Trip*
27th – 28th November 2019
This is a great opportunity for those looking for gifts, furnishing a house or just looking for something, to join us on a short overnight trip to what was once the capital of Nueva Galicia. Staying in the historic downtown of the city we offer a guided walking tour of some of the main historic attractions of the city, or for those who wish to, you can go exploring the plazas, malls and shops of the centre.
After breakfast on the second day we whisk you off to the vibrant and at times chaotic street market, or tianguis, of Tonalá. Here you can find blown glass, furniture, pottery, woodwork and more in this huge twice a week market. After the excitement of the street market we take you on a short trip across to Tlaquepaque. Here you can enjoy the pedestrian street lined with amazing galleries, stores and wonderful restaurants and bars (and a fantastic ice cream store near the main square), before we make our way back with our purchases to the coast.
*We also offer concert and shows in Guadalajara subject to availability. We will use the overnight itinerary as the base, with the evening used to go to the event in question. We will announce these shows as we are notified about them.
