All aboard, tequila lovers! We’ve got an attraction for you. A ticket on the Jose Cuervo Express® train will bring you to or from Tequila, Mexico, where you can take a tour at a historic tequila distillery. Did we mention that a Premium Plus ticket includes an open bar?

The excursion, now a few years old, provides a luxury ride through the blue agave landscape from Guadalajara to Tequila and vice versa. On the way, riders in Premium Plus class will be able to indulge in seasonal fruit, Mexican snacks and, yes, all the tequila your heart desires.

The Premium Plus train experience prides itself on its upscale atmosphere, equipped with “spacious tables, gleaming mirrors, leather upholstery and seats of polished wood,” according to the Mundo Cuervo website. Essentially, it’s the perfect environment to catch a buzz while taking in the beautiful scenery.

Also included in the fare is an entire day’s worth of activities — seriously, like 11 hours worth of tequila consumption. With the fare, you’ll experience an agave harvesting demonstration, a professional tasting guided by a “Maestro Tequilero,” a tour of the 250-year-old distillery and cellar, a Mexican show and a classical toast with premium tequila.

There are two other ticket classes: Express and Premium. They include most of the activities included in the Premium Plus price, just without the open bar and versatile seating options. The Express experience also provides fare options for children ages six to 17.

If you’re ready to get liquored up, one-way tickets start at around $130 per piece for the Premium Plus experience, around $120 for the Premium experience and around $110 for the Express experience.
