On a short getaway to PV with my husband and a couple of friends, we booked the Taco Tour for our first night. It was an excellent way to get acclimated to the city and learn about some awesome food spots. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was insanely good. I highly recommend this tour, and I'm... More

Our guide Ana Maria was fabulous. We wanted to take her to dinner and just talk to her about all of her experiences. She was friendly with everyone, knew so many proprietors, had great tips, stories, and made the tour 5 stars. Added a couple extra stops, went for 5 hours. We were tired and so full but totally enjoyed... More

Six of us did the evening taco tour with Manuel. He takes you to 8 stops along the way, where you taste several different tacos, mezcal, pozole. He was so knowledgeable and every single stop was so delicious! If you are looking to see some of the city and learn about the food/taco scene, this tour is awesome. Our guide,... More

Ana Marie was outstanding. She comes from a family that has been in the area for 500 years. She spent many years in the US so her English is flawless. She had so much information on the history of the area and the history of the food that it was hard to take it all in.

You do walk a fair bit and the street have lots of stones, breaks and stairs. Two of us had knee issues and were OK. Just walking... More

I'll start with the guide - Ana Maria knew everyone and everyone knew and seemed to love her. She was amazing! I learned many things about this wonderful culture of Mexico and many things about Puerto Vallarta that I did not know despite coming to the area for 20 years. I've always known the food here was some of the... More
