Our ride with Clarence was a delightful way to get past the touristy, glitzy part of the city and ride around the neighborhoods, discovering art along the way. Riding on the fat tire bikes was easy, fun and it made us feel a little like kids again, out cruising the barrios. He kept us safe, customized the tour to include some new graffiti art, and taught us about the graffiti artists and culture in Puerto Vallarta. Can't wait to ride with Clarence again! We've more than 50 photos from this tour and they are some of our favorites from our whole trip.

We have been visiting Puerto Vallarta for years and this was our first bike tour. The artwork quite literally made us say ‘how did they do that?’. Really incredible. The tour also gave us a chance to experience parts of the city we had not been to before or even knew where there to be explored. Clarence was very knowledgeable and made us feel very welcome and involved on the tour. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone visiting PV!

Our first excursion with Carmen & Clarence pre pandemic was so much fun, we booked a second ride this January. Clarence customized the tour to include new art and delicious taco stops. It's a lovely experience and chance to visit neighbourhoods outside the usual areas as well as see the robust street art scene.
A must excursion!

My friend and I were pumped to do this tour. It was pricy via Trip Advisor (over $100 Canadian each). We ended up meeting at their "home office" which was their house. We signed waivers, which is understandable. We were given water bottles which were previously used by others. Whether clean or not I was not going to use that and thought it was gross. New unopened bottled water should have been given.

pros: bikes were in very good shape
nice biking neighbourhoods you would never possibly visit
some of the art
a graveyard we stopped at for a few minutes

cons: Carmen didn't really know anything about the street art. I finally gave up riding right behind her as I can't even count the number of times she said she didn't know who the artist was and didn't know the meaning behind the art. I ended up going to the back of the line just to take pictures of what I wanted to take pictures of out of frustration.
the other family that took the tour with us didn't seem too impressed either and wanted to end the tour a bit early and go back. At one point Carmen pointed out a small dog that would come running out after us as we passed. The dog ended up biting one of the participants feet. (if you know there is an aggressive dog on the tour, why go that way?)

In reading other reviews it looks like someone named Clarence went on the tour, which we did not have. Maybe they know more about the art. It also would have been helpful to have a guide at the front and back so the people at the back didn't get left behind which happened a couple of times.

There are other tours in PV that are better. We did a Vallarta Eats tour that was in the same neighbourhood and was half the price and lots of very good food and a ton of information about the neighbourhoods. We also saw some street art on that tour as there is street art everywhere in PV. We also did a cooking class with Gaby's Restaurant which was awesome.

All in all I wish there was more information regarding the street art and also stopping to take pictures of things that we don't normally find at home like dogs on a roof.

I am sorry that you were disappointed by the tour. It appears that we “started off on the wrong foot” and that we had poor communication. You are correct we are a small business that is run out of our house. I did not think that my using the term “home office” misrepresented us as something we are not, however, you clearly felt otherwise. I wish that you had told me about your misgivings regarding our use of reusable water bottles. We use these for two reasons. Firstly, we wanted to reduce our plastic waste and felt that reusable bottles, although they are plastic, would be more ecologically friendly as they can be used many times instead of the single use bottles which many people are trying avoid. Secondly, standard single use individual water bottles do not fit into standard bicycle water bottle cages. With the cobble and dirt streets there is constant vibration of the bike and we discovered that within a very short distance the bottles always fall out of the bottle cage. It is true that the outside of the reusable bottles do get scuffed and scratched up. This is because they must fit snuggly into the bottle cage so they do not fall out with the motion of the bike. This happens after just a few uses, but in no way affects the quality of the water inside the container. We thoroughly wash them after each use. If you recall from our short safety orientation before the tour, I informed the group that the water was purified and let everyone know that we could easily buy more if needed. I would have gladly carried a newly purchased bottle of water for you in my backpack. You said that you felt that the tour was not a good value and noted that a Vallarta Eats Food tour that you took was half the price. I agree that our friends at Vallarta Eats have wonderful tours, but they are not half the price of ours. I looked at Viator’s listings today and our tour was listed at $1,744.82 pesos and Vallarta Eats tours ranged from $1,036.50 to $1,658.41 pesos. These are walking tours that focus on food and do not have specialized equipment. You complimented us on our bikes. Thank you! Our bikes are name brand bikes that cost $30,000 pesos each (approximately $2,119 CDN). They also require consistent maintenance to keep them in good working order because they are exposed to dirt, sand, water, and even sometimes salt with every use. Maintaining and storing this specialized equipment is costly and is reflected in our price, which although is higher, is not 50% higher than Vallarta Eats. Moreover, our cycling tour covered a distance of about 14 kilometres. Riding a bicycle allowed you to see more of the city and visit neighbourhoods that you would not visit on a shorter walking tour. You mentioned that you felt that the people at the back got “left behind”. As I mentioned in the orientation, we travel on public streets and as such I cannot control the flow of traffic. There were times that the first part of the group crossed through an intersection and had to wait for the others, because at that moment a vehicle approached the intersection, but at no point did I take off and leave the people at the back on their own. We travelled as a group. I do regret that one of the participants had her shoe bitten by the dog. I was very relieved that she was not harmed and if you recall, I indicated that I would be changing the route of the tour as a result. I have ridden down that road countless times and all the little dog ever did was bark. I enjoyed the murals on that side of the cemetery and I wanted to share them with my customers. You also said that the “other family that took the tour with us didn’t seem too impressed either and wanted to end the tour a bit early and go back”. It is true that one member of the other group expressed a desire to go back earlier; however, whether the other members wanted to return early is uncertain. Moreover, you and the other person in your group said you wanted to see more art so we went to the skate park art to accommodate you. If you had truly wanted to return sooner, I again, wish you would have said something. Your biggest complaint seemed to be my apparent lack of knowledge about the street art. You said that you got tired of hearing me say that I did not know who the artist was or what the meaning behind the art. Here, I could have educated you better about street art. Unlike artists in a gallery, street artists don’t have artist statements that you can read that summarize their work. Often times, they let the work “speak for itself”. Moreover, some of the artists prefer to stay anonymous and sometimes purposely hide the true meaning of their work from the general public. This creates a bit of mystery around street art which I find alluring. (Apparently you did not.) Every time I learn a new fact about a piece or get the opportunity to meet another artist, I delight in adding that information to the tour. It is like hidden treasure. Possibly you did not hear me, because people tend to mill around taking photos, but I did tell the group about many of the pieces on the tour. I took a street art tour in Mexico City and my guide did not know the underlying meaning of some of the pieces, but it did not detract from my experience. Enjoying the art for its aesthetics and how it makes you feel is also a valid and desireable way to interact with it. During my safety orientation, I had emphasized that the participants should communicate their concerns to me, so that they could have the best experience. For some reason, you did not feel comfortable doing that during the tour itself. This experience has motivated me to find ways to improve communication with my customers so that they can get the most out our tours and feel comfortable telling me in the moment if they have concerns. Thanks, Carmen

This excursion was a great opportunity to experience the local neighborhoods. Carmen and Clarence were great; knowledgeable and personable with our safety always in mind. The bike ride is on the low-intermediate side, the fat tire bike is easy to ride and the journey did not have many hills, some traffic and lots of cobblestone so we felt like we got a light workout by the end. We saw lots of beautiful Graffiti art and Carmen knows her stuff. We became so much more aware of the extensive art everywhere in PV and learned a bit of history while we were at it. Aside from the art, we saw parts of PV we would not have seen without the bike ride’s introduction. Fun and unique day!

We had great slightly hazy morning for our tour and were luck to have Carmen all to ourselves. She was very accommodating to our needs which we really appreciated. It was such fun to tour neighborhoods and see art that most tourists never get to see. The cobblestones were challenging but the fat tires really helped. Unique tour, highly recommend!

Our group of three did the fat bike tour with Carmen and had a great time. The ride goes at a relaxed pace and stays mostly on low traffic neighborhood streets. Carmen spent time making sure that our bikes fit properly and explained the signals that she would be using. I still say “Tope!” (speed bump) just for fun at home. The murals were amazing and made for a great morning trip. You’ll be done by lunch and your tour includes stopping for tacos or something else to eat at the end (she will give you a few options). I would say that this ride is good for just about all fitness levels. It’s mostly flat with a couple small hills. The bikes have super low gearing, so you can climb a wall if you need too (but don’t). Two of us were experienced cyclists and the third had not cycled in years and has a bad knee. We all had a wonderful ride. You’ll learn a bit about the artists who created the murals and there are several that will challenge your brain a bit to see the way they change depending on how you look at them.

Carmen and Clarence were super, right from the online booking and emails with extra information to the tour itself. Carmen was a great guide, knowledgeable about the graffiti art and about bikes. She fixed a flat in no time! We got to see more of true Mexican neighbourhoods in Puerto Vallarta and enjoy the outdoors and a little exercise at the same time.

The bike tour of wall art was a highlight of our stay in PV. Carmen was an excellent guide - informative and interesting as well as keeping our comfort and safety in mind. The fat tire bikes are tons of fun and easy to handle on cobblestone streets. We loved riding through neighbourhoods outside the usual tourist areas. We hope to return in 2021 and ride again with the Poons.

Amazing ride with Clarence into the backroads of Puerto Vallarta. We went up into the mountains to some incredible remote dirt roads near a creek, and, at one point, foraged the water on our fat tire bikes. We also stopped by some impressive graffiti artwork. Definitely a good workout on some tough roads. We finished back in town at some of the best taco stands of the whole trip. Really satisfying post ride meal! Will definitely check in with Clarence on next visit for another ride!
