Prudence Clendenning-CloppUnited States
Lino was a very personable and experienced tour guide for our visit to Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque. He drove his own car to the various sites. He provided a good balance of information from early Mexican history to the present. We enjoyed the sites he selected that offered a variety of church and domestic architecture and an indepth discussion of murals by Orozco, and a tour of the arts and crafts show at Tlaquepaque. He made our visit to Gaudalajara a wonderful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Prudence.

Went on a private tour to the pyramids of Guachimontones with Lino. He picked us up at our hotel and was very punctual. The van was comfortable and we were driven to the archeological site. There is some walking up to the pyramids so wear comfortable shoes, we actually wear lightweight hiking boots. You will be able to hike up to the top of pyramid 1 which was not refurbished, like pyramid 2. The views are incredible. The interpretive center has artifacts and a film. Highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you for your kind words, you are great people and a wonderful couple, thanks for everything and keep up traveling the way you know. Best regards Lino Gabriel G.

Neal HydeUnited States
Lino used the drive out to the tequila tour to share his knowledge of tequila and it's quite extensive. We loved that he chose an hacienda with all the history that show the progression of the tequila making process. Herradura was a great place to visit. He took us for an amazing lunch overlooking the canyon of the river Santiago. And we ended with a drive through of the old town of tequila which was just enough after a long day. Great drive back with great convo about Mexican history and the federal gov
