We had the pleasure of booking with JD Tours on January 5,2012 for a 6 hour cruise. The boat was awesome. The crew was very accomodating, taking us sight seeing and fishing. We saw whales and dolphins up close. We were surrounded by dolphins twice. We caught lots of fish, which was expertly cleaned for us. We saw manta rays and a turtle. We had a big cooler of ice and beverages supplied for us. The crew was two brothers Miguel and Tony who allowed us to have input to the duraration of our fishing experience. They doubled back to allow us to follow the schools of tuna enabling us to catch two. We caught mackerel and a red snapper,which we had for our supper that night. I would definitely recommend this tour company to anyone who wants good value for their money. Jordan followed up with a personal phone call the next day to ensure that we enjoyed our trip. Thank you Jordan,we will see you in December 2012. Carole Jonasson and family(Winnipeg Manitoba)

“Sail/Whale via Pegaso via Jordon at JD Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Fantastic 1/2 day Sail/Whale watch trip we took. Very informative, A very exciting day. Jordan provides great service, we searched him out because of Trip, so well worth the search. He proved to be on top of his game with the tours that are available. We ended up having one of our most spectacular moments of "LIfe" on this sail.. I will post pics, Kudos Jordan, thx. We totally recommend JD Tours in Bucerius. Honest,worthy, trusting and knowledgeable are my words. He provides many a tour, I can only speak for ours, which was fantastic! Pegaso Chartering provided us with the upmost experience.

“Total lack of knowledge”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

We are staying in Bucerias and had friends coming down. JD Tours was recommended to us and we went in and booked 3 tours. The first one we wanted was a whale watching and beach excursion. After checking many, Joe suggested we take Mary Beth Tours as we could own the time on the boat for 5 hours and go wherever we wanted. Well, the captain and the boat owners never spoke to us except to bad mouth restaurants, we never saw a whale and they said they never go to beaches. They also said 4 hours was there maximum. We could have had a great trip with Vallarta Adventures for nearly the same price.
Then our friends went on a zip line that they were informed was 31/2 hours long which was great because we were going on Rhythms of the Night at 6pm They neglected to tell us that there was a two hour bus trip each way which would have made them miss the evening. Fortunately, they were able to cut their zip lining short and rush to catch the morning bus home. One would think a supposed tour operator would know such a thing. They lack knowledge and the caring to resolve issues.
To anyone coming to this lovely area, please do yourselves a favour and go to another tour operator.
There is absolutely no way JD Tours should be in business!!

I am sorry about your tour with the mary beth they have always been a good boat for our office , your complaint although should have been directed at the office to recieve some sort of refund , Even though everybody can have a bad day that is no excuse for your bad experience we would be glad to offer you another tour at our expense as pleasing our customers is and always will be our number one goal .

“thanks for the great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

we were going to go zip lining and our hotel was offering deal for $75. I read about JD tours on tripadvisor and we came across the office on a walk and went in and book for $45.

“The Best way to Celebrate The New Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

JD Tours arranged a fabulous boat trip to Celebrate New Years Eve, 2012.
Jordan and his 'crew' (boat and helpers) did a fabulous job!!
There was dancing, prizes, good food, a great bar (all included in the price) and the best view of the fireworks to bring in the new year, .... right in front of the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta!!
All around the bay you could see smaller towns letting off fireworks at midnight and I felt that my head was on a swivel, but the best show was right in front of us!!

This is a definate "must do" Jordan says he already has ideas to make it bigger and better!!
AWESOME JD ... loved it
