Here are a few comments from people who went on the August 5, 2009 excursion:

"What a great day and great experience. Joe's tour and history was terrific. I love to know more about my adopted country. Then of course, there was Joe and Monica's lunch, the best homecooked meal I have had in ages..."

"The Hacienda is lovely, Joe is enthusiastic and a warm host. His information about how the Hacienda was run, the former occupants and owners, the ledgers & banking - it was quite interesting and lively in that setting. Loved the trip into town and the stop at the coffee roasters. Fun to see and smell and taste coffee production - and learn and appreciate the organic process..."

"The food was delicious - The explanation and walk around the grounds to see how silver was made was truly a highlight. Took some wonderful pictures! Again, Joe's enthusiasm and knowledge brought it to life for us. He's a good guide. I can't think of anything that would have significantly made our time on the hacienda any better."

"Oh my gosh Pamela, what fun, beauty, food and all the extras... Your son and wife are incredible.. Truly, as far as I can see, nothing needs to be done, I think the place and its inhabitants say it all, simply wonderful... thank you! I would love to go again..."

"I can only say it was a perfect day. The people were great as well as Joe and his wife and all the staff at the Hacienda. The food was outstanding as was the tequila that Joe served at our table."

"We want to thank you so much for organizing this trip, and your son, his wife and the staff for all the work, and all of you for your hospitality today. We did have a wonderful day. The lunch was delicious and Joe's historical background very informative. We did make new friends and we enjoyed the whole group."

Situated 4,500 feet above sea level in the heart of the Sierra Madre Mountains, San Sebastian's cool climate and historic appeal have made it one of Mexico's last great getaways. Hacienda Jalisco invites you to escape the summer heat while enjoying a fun-filled day.
