Miel was our guide, has the sweetest, friendliest demeanour. She clearly has a passion for food, for helping you have a delicious experience and learn more about local food and the stories behind each taco stand/restaurant. Every single taco was incredible, so different to what we had eaten at local restaurants that we had picked (based on reviews). Each taco was different, had a new flavour or consistency and was unbelievably delicious. I'd recommend you skip lunch to have room for all the tacos, we were very full by the end but didn't want to miss any tacos given how incredible they all were. If you could only pick one tour to pay for in Puerto Vallarta I'd highly recommend this is it. The tour was private (I believe all their tours are private during COVID) and Miel (and our group) wore masks when not eating

Our guide, Luis Alba, led us through the local neighborhood of Versalles w/wonderful tastings, each one different and delicious and so much better than anything we've eaten in Old Town. They were all restaurants we will return to and love to experience on our own and the value is exceptional. Luis explained the history of the restaurant and preparation of the tasting. So much food. This was our 2nd tour w/Vallarta Food Tours and they have not disappointed.

Id been to Puerta Vallarta several times prior and was looking for a new adventure. Vallarta Food Tours caught my eye and although I’d heard of food tours before, I’d never done one. Well I and my family were in for a treat.
We had 11 family members, including myself and Abuela (80 yrs old) participate. I was a little worried about Abuela keeping up, but the format of the food tour was paced so she had no problem. After meeting our amazing tour guide Sylvia at plaza in the Romantic Zone we walked 5 minutes to our first restaurant where we sampled Chilaquiles. They were delicious. We then followed a familiar pattern of walking to the next restaurant all the while being entertained and informed of the history of the surroundings by Sylvia. We sampled Shrimp Tacos, Tacos de Birria, Aguas Frescas (fruit drinks) and Helados de Paletas (Real Fruit Popsicles) among several other offerings (carnitas, tacos de ceviche) and we even visited a tortilla factory. On our last visit we were served a small burrito con mole, shot of tequila and a big margarita. We had a marvelous time and would recommend Sylvia and Vallarta Food Tours to anyone in town for a day on a cruise stop or even someone staying for a few days. The restaurants we visited are very established good places with good prices. My only regret is I didn’t have another day to go back and have a sit down at any one of the restaurants we frequented while with Sylvia. The guide herself made the tour unforgettable. We will definately be back and will ask for Sylvia.

It is hard to overstate how much the four of us -2 couples- enjoyed the 3 hour evening street taco walking tour. Meil was a delightfully knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. She brought the city to life for us, and helped us understand both the origins and ingredients of what we were eating. And of course, the food was amazing! Felt more like a good local friend was showing us her favorites than being on a tourist tour. We would highly recommend Meil and this tour—it was a wonderful evening.

We have been long time customers of Vallarta Food Tours and make a point of experiencing one each year we have been vacationing here. In fact, some tours we have done a couple of times. Paul and his team have done a great job creating tour programs that are professionally prepared and executed. They all take you to places that you would normally not consider. But surprise, they are amazing, the staffs are friendly and the food and flavors will exceed your expectations. It really opens you to new cuisine and preparations. This year we tried the new Versalles tour and enjoyed it very much. Give it a try you will truly enjoy the experience.

My wife and I just finished an evening with Miel as our food tour guide through the hip Versalles neighborhood. Miel could not have been more charming or knowledgeable. She had a wealth of knowledge regarding food, and Mexico, and shared both with us in such an engaging way. We were her only couple this particular evening, which was such a bonus. Multiple stops with amazing tacos early on, then a couple of drink stops capped off with a fabulous desert and glasses of wine. I HIGHLY recommend booking with this company, and Miel in particular. She was a delight. Thank you for one of the best experiences ever in PV….or anyplace we have traveled.

We had SO much fun in this virtual experience learning about mezcal with our friends! Luis was knowledgeable, creative, and so funny. Our group left with a better understanding of mezcal history, why it's culturally important, what to look for when buying mezcal and (maybe most importantly) how to drink it. (The two cocktails we made together are new favorites in our house!)

My husband and I have visited Puerto Vallarta twice and have booked in-person experiences with Vallarta Food Tours each time. I would highly recommend them to anyone visiting and wanting a taste of Puerto Vallarta OR to anyone who can't visit right now, but is looking to expand their horizons at home. Thank you, PVT for offering this option! We can't wait to see you all again!

My husband and I attended the Versalles food tour and would 100% recommend it to others! We were staying close to this neighborhood and heard it was the up and coming food scene so decided to book it. We had the pleasure to be hosted by Miel “Honey”. She was the best tour guide. Her passion for all types of food was clearly evident. She explained the history of the different meals we had and they were all delicious! Thank you Miel for a wonderful evening! We hope to enjoy another one of your tours!
Gracias! James and Leah from Arizona

Another five star review for Vallarta Food Tours. Bernardo was our guide. What a very knowledgeable, energetic, and kind man.
I was so happy that we booked this our very first day, during our first trip to Puerto Vallarta. It really set the stage for the entire trip. Not knowing what to expect of Puerto Vallarta, this helped us ease into the city and actually created a scenario where we spent more time in the city than at our resort, which is really unusual for our family.
The food stops were all well chosen and all delicious. We did not eat breakfast before because we were running late and I am really glad we didn’t. A ton of good food! Bernardo always offered us seconds if we wanted, but you need to pace yourself on this tour.
The surprise of the tour was the tuba drink. As Bernardo put it “something you would probably never try on your own.” 100% true but so glad we did.
Next time we are in town we will book another tour with them. Great value for the money.

We had the most amazing time with Miel in Pitallal. She took us to great places, had great backstories, and had the vendors serve us delicious food. We especially loved that this wasn’t a touristy spot - eating and mingling in a working suburb. Felt like a truly authentic experience.
