          Great alternative to ship excursions.
          Tour guide was very knowledgeable. The price was phenomenal for what you get. Definitely will use Viator for future travel adventures.

          Puerto Vallarta overview
          Excellent day trip- only regret is that we did not spend enough time in town. I would’ve rather had 20 more minutes there and eliminated one of the other stops.

          Not thrilled, just average
          I will say this. The tequila shop tour and tasting ensured an extra star to this review, plus the fact that they pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. Barely spent anytime at the oceanfront/Malecon (which I was hoping), and quickly found myself in overpriced shops (chocolate tasting, jewelry store, leather shop, coffee shop with people attempting to sell expensive carpets). When I sign up for a tour, I expect more scenic picturesque locations, and decent length of time taking photos and learning about each important landmark, instead of a clear ploy to tourist trap. By far my biggest gripe was an uncomfortable ride in the van. I'm 6'3 and found myself severely squished, not to mention an extremely bumpy ride on the cobblestones and uneven roads. A warning for those who get carsick or suffering a hangover, this is not a tour you want to try. All in all it was only $29 CAD and I didn't spend on anything else. Buyer beware, and if you're hoping for a scenic tour prepare to be severely disappointed. Would recommend people just taking an uber to downtown or the Malecon and exploring that way.

          city tour
          This was a great tour....Michael was our tour guide and he was terrific. We enjoyed the various stops and the drive. The tour of the small tequila distillery was fun. The tour was well organized and moved along at a good pace. Raul and Miquel, who were the west jet reps at the resort were very helpful

          Long trip on bumpy bus
          Transportation terrible.Bus old, windows were rattling, view from windows were somewhat obstructed because tinting was peeling and bubbly. It was raining and bus was leaking through windows. Should have taken smaller vans and less rattling on road. Tour guide Jorge was excellent! But. Because of length of trip in such an uncomfortable vehicle, it detracted from our enjoyment

          Countryside Jalisco
          We booked with grey line tours . Hector was a very informative guide and Jose was an excellent driver! Hector relayed so many childhood stories about the area that is was easy to fall in love with this place. As we travelled from our hotel , Hector talked about the economy and pointed out the US Navel ship in the marina . As we quickly turned north out of PV , the countryside was a vast difference from the shops of PV. Roadside food stands selling fruits and clothes were dotted along the winding road . First stop after the “new bridge” was a tequila farm . Educating us on the family dynamics of a tequila distillery . Up the winding road Jose’s skills were again proven!!!! Hector pointed out variety of trees and the agave fields , telling us where his family would often stop on Sunday drives to San Sebastián ! Next was a coffee plantation in the heart of San Sebastián , the aromas !!! A wonderful lunch was supplied with options of beverages and deserts. More history was given and time for some walking around the town . It was a little cooler up here in the mountains so a little cafe was a welcome sight ! This tour was amazing and I learned a lot !

          Discovery Taco Tour
          This is one of the best tours I've ever taken. So much fun. And the tacos were so good. Eric and Adrian provided lots of information but best of all they were very entertaining. Fun stories. Very personable. I highly recommend this tour.

          Fabulous Discovery Taco Tour in Puerto Vallarta
          We visited 4 local, non-touristy, neighborhood Puerto Vallarta restaurants to eat a variety of delicious tacos & drinks. Our superb guides, Eric & Adrien, were fun & informative. Highly recommend doing this tour with these two guides!

          BoringTour with terrible Tour Guide
          The Tour Guide let people wander all over, at every stop we waited 10 to 15 minutes for everyone get back. At the last stop some of us chose not to get off. When we Realized the time, we told the bus driver the ship sailed at 430 argued that we had till 530. We had a schedule to prove we were right. The tour guide still didn't hurry people up. We made it back with 5 minutes to spare. He was very rude when we disembarked because w didn't leave him a tip. Stay away from Gray Line. He covered up his name tag so we couldn't report him

          Take an Uber Instead of this Supposed Tour
          The day trip to San Pancho and Sayulita was disappointing. Although the towns are interesting, instead of being a tour, it was basically a ride in an old, cramped van with weak air conditioning. Although the tour guide was a nice man, he only shared a few facts about the towns. We only had 20 to 30 minutes in San Pancho which wasn’t nearly enough. Also, I thought we’d be picked up at our hotel. Instead we had to walk to a central meeting place in The Romantic Zone. I wish we had taken an Uber instead of this supposed tour.

          A Great Day!
          We just came back from our full day tour, traveling up the mountain to San Sebastián. Our Tour guide/ driver, Eric, was amazing! He drove expertly, and safely all day, while he gave us a multitude of local and historical information. We enjoyed a stop at a bakery, for delicious coffee and pastries. ( not included in tour price) Then travelled on to San Sebastián, where we toured this quant , 420 year old, historic town. In town we visited a jewelry store, the beautiful San Sebastián church, a coffee plantation, and craft market ( we bought a lovely table runner, that had been woven right there), We ended our visit to the town with a lovely lunch ( included). It was juice, tortillas, molé chicken, beans, rice and a Mexican meat dish. We then, carried on down the mountain to the “ tequila factory “, where we learned about the tequila making process from Alex, who then gave us tastes of the excellent tequila his family makes to be sold, exclusively, at this factory. Sebastián, the photographer, came along, taking many great photos. All in all, it was a great day, made excellent by Eric, with lots to do and see.

          SAN Sebastián Full Day Tour
          What a fabulous day with our very informative and genuinely kind tour guide Eric! He taught us so much about the area - history, vegetation (who knew there were so many kinds of fruit trees and agave plants!) local people, etc. After a winding and climbing drive up the mountains (take Gravol if you are at all prone to motion sickness) we stopped at a bakery and purchased pastries and coffee (not included) in a very quaint setting. Next we stopped at a jewelry/silver/opal store. Then we drove another 30 minutes to the town of San Sebastián where Eric walked us through and taught us so much about the history. We visited a coffee plantation and sampled the coffee, visited the church and many other sites. Free time was given for wandering and shopping - prices are more expensive than Puerto Vallarta flee markets. Lunch (included) was an authentic Mexican meal - cheese tortilla, refried beans, rice, chicken molee, beef dish, and warm tortilla shells. On the way home we stopped at a tequila factory and learned how agave plants are turned into the liquor. Of course there is a shop to purchase the many flavours (quite expensive). A fantastic full day!!

          Don't Miss this Excellent and Authentic Taco Tour
          The taco tour, led by Erik, was amazing and included stops at four off the beaten path taco stands. The variety of tacos was outstanding and delicious. Erik shared his local knowledge at each stop as well as in the comfortable, air conditioned van. Our tour only had 7 guests and was the perfect size to get to know each other and have fun. In addition to the four taco stops, the tour included a refreshing ice cream stop, a tortilla factory, and some sights and sounds around bustling Mexican town. If you want to eat where the locals eat then this is the tour for you. At the last stop the icing on the cake was a tequila drink served in a beautiful souvenir clay mug. 100% recommend! It will be a highlight of your trip to PV. And one piece of advice, skip breakfast...this tour has lots of food.

        we spent the entire day on a private tour of San Sebastian del Oeste. We were picked up from our hotel at 9 AM. Erick was there sharp at 9 AM and he had a very comfortable large SUV. Erick was an amazing tour guide. So much information shared - it was an exciting day. Our first stop was a roadside eatery. Fresh tortillas with beans, salsa and cheese for breakfast - made fresh in front of our eyes. Also ended up buying Mexican snacks, candies and drinks.

        Next stop was a tequila distillery. great info on tequila making and a great tasting. We ended up buying a whole lot of tequila and rachilla for our friends and family in US. After that we drove on and stopped at a coffee makers in San Sebastian. and then roamed around all of San Sebastian. Amazing place, old school magic - truly takes you back in time

        We stopped at a local churros bakery and we also went to the church and a hotel which was amazing. We shopped around and then had lunch at Lupita's - Erick spoke to the restaurant, found us a table, helped us with customizing our food, etc.

        After lunch we stopped at a chocolate factory and on the way back to the hotel, he helped up search for a tortilla press and he finally found a shop which had one - he communicated and helped us buy one as well.

        Amazing tour, amazing amount of information. One of the best tours and tour guides we have ever had

        We used this company for a private tour of San Sebastian as well as private airport transfers to and from our destination. We had to reschedule everything due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, and we were very impressed and happy with their professionalism, communication, and flexibility! The tour guides were wonderful, and Daniela was great at helping us arrange everything, and ensure we were taken care of. We will definitely use this company for our tours next year when we are in the area again!
