What a fun tour! We learned all about chocolate. From how chocolate was first used to how to toast and grind the beans. We also got to eat a lot of chocolate. Go hungry on this tour. We made the mistake of eating before the tour and I could not even try the samples at the last stop. Be prepared to buy chocolate and more chocolates! Sandra is a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable about Puerto Vallarta and the history of Mexico. We will try another of Sandra’s tours.

Our multi generational family met with Sandra for a private walking tour of Historic El Centro on Feb 20th. Sandra was extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight into the history of the area while we walked - the tour had something for everyone. The stores that we visited sold quality authentic Mexican goods and each provided insight into Mexican culture. Although it was hot out and we met in the late afternoon, Sandra did a great job keeping us in the shade and at a pace that no one fell behind. Everyone (ages 83-16) agreed it was one of our highlights of our trip to Puerto Vallarta. Thanks Sandra!

Was great to show your family the culture of Vallarta. There is much to learn about the history, folk arts, architecture and more including meeting some of the local merchants and artisans to see how they live and work. Immersion is the best way to do this, even if only for a couple of hours. Come back soon!

We enjoyed our two tours very much. Sandra gave us an indispensable orientation to two areas of Puerto Vallarta, which served us well during the rest of our visit. We went back several times and also explored other areas that she mentioned. We appreciated her knowledge and care. I highly recommend her tours.

On February 11th, my husband and I went on the Gringo Gulch Walking Tour with Sandra. This tour and Sandra"s expertise exceeded our expectations. Sandra was knowledgeable, professional, considerate and had some personal stories that added to the information being shared. We enjoyed her passion for Puerto Vallarta. This tour should not be missed as the area is fascinating and Sandra captured its essence beautifully. Karen and Jeff - Oakville, Ontario

We loved our tour of El Tuito, courtesy of Sandra Cesca and Puerto Vallarta Walking Tours. El Tuito is a small town 30 miles south of Puerto Vallarta. It has a unique charm and unlike anything I've seen outside of Puerto Vallarta. Sandra hired a driver and took us to many different places along the way - an empanada stand with fresh empanadas of at least 10 different flavors, a Raicilla distiller who makes is own brand, and a manufacturer of concrete bricks and blocks used throughout Mexico. When we got to town, we toured the main Plaza, the Cultural Center, the gorgeous San Pedro Apostol Parish, a torilla manufacturer, the streets and stores surrounding the main plaza, and areas just outside of the main town, seeing beautiful homes, a secondary school (the marching band was practicing that day!), the home of an artist who makes sculptures of clay, and a wonderful not-for-profit art gallery which features a wide variety of works done by local artists. All along the way, Sandra provided us much interesting information about El Tuito's history, the backgrounds of many of the businesses we saw, and life in general in El Tuito. Sandra is a wealth of knowledge and her command of the Spanish language really enhances the learning experience. We finished the day with a lovely meal of authentic Mexican food along the town square. The trip to El Tuito was well worth it. It's a small, hidden town and a wonderful getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city. The town is clean and tranquil. The people are wonderful. Truly charming. This was my second Walking Tour with Sandra (Pitillal was the first) and I'd happily do another with her in the future.
