I arrived in Puerto Vallarta via cruise ship, and this was an excursion not offered on board the ship. Unfortunately, the ship's time was one hour behind land time, which caused us to be extremely late. Anna Maria, our guide was extremely gracious and contacted us multiple times and also waited extra to begin the tour. She even met our... More

This may sound a little touristy but don't let that deter you. It is SO worth it. My boyfriend and I are from Texas and are accustomed to Tex-Mex so we were really looking forward to trying some authentic food. Plus, my boyfriend has a slightly annoying obsession with tacos so the Street-Evening Taco Tour was the logical choice. We... More

This tour of the Pitillal neighborhood is everything in the description and more. Pitillal is a part of PV that tourists would not wander into just because it's not heavily advertised in the tour books. But it is a neighborhood that has some of the best Mexican food. To use a marketing term, this is authentic Mexican food because all... More

So my family and I visited PV last week - 5 adults and 2 boys in their 20's. This was BY FAR our most favorite "excursion" in Puerto. Lupo was our guide for our taco street tour and it was AMAZING! We couldn't believe how much we learned on the tour and talk about terrific food. Some of the best... More

This tour was Awesome! My girlfriend and I got to the shop the day of the tour (about 5 minutes before the 11 o'clock tour started) without any tickets. The owner of Vallarta tours let us buy tickets for the 11 o'clock tour, and drove us over to Ana Marie and the two other gals in our group. He was... More

I love food tours and this tour definitely ranks up there in my top 5. We met Ana Marie at Lozano Cardena park at 11 am. She went over the history of the parke before we started our journey. We walked a few feet to see Senior Carden sitting alone with his clay jug for some tuba. Being from the... More

On our 4th night in town we went out on the town with Puerto Vallarta Food Tours. 1) The price was incredible for the amount of food that we ate over the 4 hour tour. 2) The knowledge you gain on this tour can't be found the same way in a book, we got one on one time with a... More

Truly an amazing experience! Our guide was knowledgable, personable and full of fun facts. I felt like a local at the end of the tour and immediately went back and bought things from the businesses we visited. The food was phenomenal and diverse. It was more than just tacos.
