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.

Food was amazing and Anna Marie was so knowledgeable! Will do it again next year! The walking tour really helped us become comfortable with old town and we felt we really connected with the people and culture.

We took out tour with Manuel. He was fabulous from start to finish. Water is provided, in addition to beer and we stopped for mescal. There were 8 stops and each was delicious. 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

My family has been coming to Puerto Vallarta annually for 20 years and we've always loved the food scene. My mom and I decided to take the Original Downtown Food Tour yesterday and it was an EXCELLENT choice! We were the only two on our tour, so we were thrilled to have a private experience. Ana Maria was a fabulous... More

We did this evening food tour with Manuel. We had 8 food stops, most were at street carts. The tacos were all delicious and the daily made variety of sauces were likewise delicious. Our guide told us the heat rating of each sauce. We tried also a pre-Columbian soup with cabbage and hominy corn - surprisingly good. There was 1... More

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of taking the Original Downtown Vallarta Food Tour last week with Ana Maria. This tour was without a doubt the most memorable day we had in Puerto Vallarta. Ana Maria made us feel like locals by introducing us to the food, culture, history, and people of the city. The food was absolutely fabulous... More

Our group of six ranged in age from 19 - 50, and we all thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The food was DELICIOUS. We only wished we would have taken this tour on the first or second day of our stay so that we could go back and sample more from each of the stands! This tour will take you to... More

Great tour of old town PV and an opportunity to discover interesting places to visit in the days following the tour. We had Amanda (great!!!) as our guide and tapping into her local knowledge of the food scene exposed us to parts of old town that we wouldn't have otherwise tried out. The tour is different that other food tours... More

As tempting as the taco stands are I've always been hesitant to try for fear of the "turistas" so my wife and I signed up for the tour. My only regret is that we didn't do it sooner. Manu, our guide, was terrific. He is also a professional chef so extremely knowledgeable in explaining all the foods at the various... More
