“OMG! So awesome”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This is a must do for anyone wanting more than being a tourist at an all inclusive. We got to have Alex all to our selves for three hours of the most amazing food and an education on some of Mexico's rich history. I tried foods I normally wouldn't go near and can't wait to go back to some of the eateries we went to.

Hi Sandiegolorir! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! We really appreciate it! Like you mentioned, the food tour is a great way to escape the all inclusives and get to see the real Vallarta, its wonderful people, history and delicious food! Alex had a great time showing you ladies around, come see us next time. Saludos!

“A Great Way to the Mexico Side of Puerto Vallarta”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I wasn't sure what to expect when signing up for this tour, but I was very pleasantly surprised. We got to try many types of Mexican food and drinks at various restaurants and food carts around the downtown area. Alex was amazing with his history of Puerto Vallarta and his description of the food and restaurants. He even told us tips on telling a good taco food stand from a bad one. This tour was amazing!!! My advice is not to eat breakfast before taking this tour because you will be stuffed by the time it ends.

“Amazing experience.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

We probably really lucked out by having a private tour, but it made the experience amazing.
My boyfriend and I got to see the real Vallarta with our guide "Lobo" who was really accomodating, personal, full of information and fun. Not only did he teach us about Mexico and Vallarta culture and history, he gave us the lowdown on the local way to drink, eat, and see our surroundings.
The tour included a diverse collection of local treats from street tacos, different types of mole, and fresh coconut, to chocolates and ice cream.
If your tour gets time, see if you can stop for the mojitos like we did along the way. They were quite refreshing.

“Fresh Local cuisine and stories!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I would not have trusted tacos from a street vendor or have wandered into some of the small, simply decorated places that I was introduced to by Vallarta Food Tours. To have missed this assortment of local eateries and food related businesses would have meant missing the best part! We met locals and heard their stories, sampling various types of local cuisine - tortillas from the local tortilla maker, cevice made from mahi mahi caught that very morning, and coconut water prepared by Cesar, the grandson of the street stand's original vendor. Our competent guide, Alex, was entertaining and informative, leading us to each spot and pointing out points of interest during the three hour tour.
Vallarta Food Tours has done an excellent job checking out local spots and creating a fun and tasty itinerary. I, for one, will do this tour again when i return to Puerto Vallarta and would wholeheartedly recommend it to friends.

“A Must See in PV”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I've been visiting Puerto Vallarta for over ten years, my husband and I just went on the food tour and it was one of the best experiences we've ever had there. It was not only a wonderful food tour but a great history lesson as well. Our guide, Lobo, was knowledgeable and fun. We will definitely do it again!
