The travel, tour and tastings are all included on the Tequila Express, a train that transports visitors from Guadalajara through the rolling landscape of agave fields to the Casa Herradura Distillery in the nearby city of Tequila. The family-owned enterprise also offers mariachi entertainment and a buffet lunch. 

Recent visitors described their experience as "well-organized" and the tour guides as "fantastic," though one traveler recommended asking about English-speaking guides if you know little Spanish. Another tip: Double-check your booking. Several travelers cautioned that a similar but less popular tequila train tour is offered by Jose Cuervo. 

The Tequila Express runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The all-inclusive admission price is 1,200 pesos, the equivalent of about $63. To find out more about the Tequila Express, visit the attraction's website.

The Rotonda de los Jaliscienses Ilustres, or Rotunda of the Illustrious Jaliscans, is a circle of 17 Doric columns and a monument to the region's favorite writers and revolutionaries. In fact, bronze statues of teacher Irene Robledo García, artist José Clemente Orozco and 20-some others ring the rotunda. Some of their ashes are even tucked into the monument. 

Recent travelers said the rotunda is a great place to get a quick dive into the history of Guadalajara. Many also suggest viewing the monument at night when it's lit by multi-colored lights
