Vallarta Shore X
Ranked #187 of 215 Tours in Puerto Vallarta
Reviewed January 5, 2015

We just had a very disappointing start to our day. We booked our hiking tour with Vallarta Shore X (through Puerto Vallarta Tours) I received email confirmation with the pickup time and location. We waited for the pickup which never came. I called the local contact who told me that someone in our group had cancelled our tour, which is impossible. We received no correspondence on any cancellation. We believe that they cancelled without notice, perhaps due to no one else signing up.

ok we have done all the tours here in puerto vallarta. The problem starts with the salesperson selling you this tour. She told us for 80 dollars each we would have a tour where we traveled an hour to a natural hotspring and would go horse back riding and go in river swimming with our horse and have a leisurely trip to hotspring, tecquila tour, shopping etc. well heres what it really is: bus from marina wihich takes about 15-20 mins; nothing against tour guides they are doing their jobs and are pleasant probably have no idea what we have been told or charged. So we get to this location which is a little restaurant style place with horses. They say you can shop after and eat here after the ride. So we divide up into levels for horse skills which does not matter as horses are all trained to follow each other at slow pace. So you ride thru town over pebbles thru stream to a farm (which is really a yard only). You dismount and a guy is offering beer from a cooler and you can change to go to hotspring or go to swim with horse (not your horse one horse that has to swim through water over and over again), we changed in someones home and went to hottub which had sulfer smell but was dirty looking . We had a total of 15 mins to do this. Then back on horse to original spot. Then had 15 mins to eat. No shopping etc back on bus again and home. This just wasnt what was offered...this was rushed and definately not 80 american dollars each value. We usually go with vallarta tours and so far have felt like it was good value and that the sales people fairly represented the packages. So if your paying maybe 30 bucks each then go to be prepared for a horse ride and return. oh for 2 beer, one coke and 4 small tacos it was 17 american dollars. yikes

Thank jackie D
