The tour is a great way to get the lay of the land. Go in with an open mind and you will have a great time. Our guides were personable and shared a wealth of knowledge about the Mexican culture. Eric, the owner, was very helpful and took the time to meet us after the tour to give us more info about the area. We definitely recommend this tour to everyone!

Did the day tour on a Sunday.

Great weather; had so much fun.

The tour was so informative...and delicious!

The guides are friendly and knowledgeable.

The food is adventurous, but not too crazy. My 69 year-old father balked a few choices, but still enjoyed it!

Overall, it's slightly expensive, but if you're a Yelper or Chowhound looking for great, safe, street food, you MUST do this tour... And everyone else you drag along with you will like it too. :)

Want to give a huge shout out to Eric, Martha, and ChaCha! We recently visited Puerto Vallarta and wanted to experience authentic Mexico (at least, as authentic as you can get in a tourist city). Vallarta Eats delivered on the promise of providing a unique and authentic experience of Mexican cuisine. We did the day tour (Tacos & More) on our first day in Puerto Vallarta and probably returned to at least 3 of the 8 or 9 places visited that day during the rest of our tour. Martha & Eric provided our group a great time sharing their knowledge of not only the local flavors and cuisine; but culture, etc. Their passion for not only the food but the city was clearly evident and contagious! They took care of us every step of the way ensuring that the group was comfortable; and definitely well fed! We then did the night tour 2 days later with ChaCha & Martha. We were the only "tourists" for this tour and ChaCha & Martha made it a WONDERFUL Friday night out. We ate @ 5 places this evening, and returned to 3 of them! The Mole & Pozole....OMG! LOL But better than the food was the personalized care that ChaCha & Martha provided. It was evident that they were not there to just do a job....but to make our experience the best it could be. We definitely believe we got to see parts of Mexico we would have never tried....as well as the confidence to explore more of the city on our own that we probably would not have done had we not taken this tour. Eric and his team made our vacation memorable not only for their tours; but for the doors they opened to us during their tours that allowed us to have a more well rounded visit to PV. AND, made 3 great new friends along the way! THANKS GUYS!!!!

My husband and I plus 4 friends went on the evening tour. Four of us are locals. We had a wonderful time visiting places we did not know about. The food was excellent and we learned as much as we ate. Learning about the food/customs of a country/people provides a new perspective of the entire culture. We ended the evening so full that none of us could finish with the dessert. Now, that is "full"! Thank you Eric and Adriana (ChaCha) for a great evening and experience.

I have been to Puerto Vallarta many time and wasn't sure I would get much out of the tour only to find it very informative and fun. We ate at places we passed by many times and others we had not seen. The food at all of the restaurants was good, but there were a few that were great and we returned during our stay. I went with an open mind and tried things I would not have ordered by myself only to be pleasantly surprised. Well worth it.
