The tour was very interesting! It is a good way to see the different type of homes in the PV area. The bus was very comfortable and the staff was very knowledgeable about the homes and the area. The homes were decorated beautifully; some modern and traditional Mexico decor! This is a great way to meet expats and people from... More

Took their home tour earlier this week. Really enjoyed seeing the 4 homes on the tour. Visited two condos and two homes. They were each different and certainly impressive. Tour was well organized and guides were very knowledgeable.

I went on this tour recently with 3 friends and had a wonderful time touring the 4 beautiful homes that were offered that day. The air conditioned bus was comfortable, the tour guides were knowledgeable and the homes were all that I had hoped for, with beautiful gardens, decor and artwork.

For the few bucks that pay for the tour bus and go to a great charity, this is the P.V. bargain of the month. I met some great English-speaking folks who have made the move here, and saw inside two traditional hacienda-style homes and two modern ocean-view homes. 'Nice to have some idea of what's behind walls and clinging to... More

We spent a lovely time touring the nicest of PV homes. Well worth the time. I particularly enjoyed the ocean side home on the cliff with decks that overlooked the surf

Every year for 15 years, we have taken a 3-hour tour of 4 special homes in the PV area. IFC has over 60 homes on their roster, so we have repeated only a few in all of that time. The tour guides are very friendly and informative, and your money goes to very good causes. If you enjoy visiting and... More

IFC Home Tours is a great way to see unusual and beautiful homes in Vallarta. I always look forward to seeing what new homes have been added. Over the years I have see some absolutely stunning homes and villas. And the money raised goes to provide cleft palate surgery to children that would otherwise go without. Kudos to the expats...

The International Friendship home tours are my favorite attraction in Puerto Vallarta. This was my third tour and I am always amazed by the spectacular homes. This is a fund raiser for the IF Club and the supported charities range from meals for children to clef palate surgeries. The volunteers are excellent, knowledgeable, love Puerto Vallarta and giving their time.... More

The tour was well organized and extremely enjoyable. It felt good to know we were helping a very important charity, too. Certainly will do it again next year.
