What a splendid way to start off my vacation in PV! I went on the tour my first day in town and it was absolutely excellent because I learned about all kinds of places I wanted to go back to or food I should try over the rest of my vacation.

Manuel was a terrific guide who was patient with my questions and gave our group tips on where to try particular dishes, for example. Thanks for introducting me to the bacon of the sea! Delicious!

Our small group was able to go to all types of spots ranging from food carts to taco stands to restaurants and learn first hand about the lovely flavors that this town has to offer. It was all delicious! I think I went back to about 80% of the places we stopped again with my friends once they got in to town. Plus, after the walking on our tour, I knew my way around and explored lots of corners that I might not have ventured to if I hadn't gone there on the tour first. I even spotted shops to return to and my friends were so excited that I remembered so many of the great finds from our tour.

I definitely benefitted from taking it early on and the map they provided was super helpful.

Also, a bit shout out to Vallarta Food tours for adjusting things as necessary since it was low season and lots of spots were closed, I guess there was some adjustment that was made in order to have a tour with open spots. As a result, I knew places I could go weith my friends that were open since several spots from tripadvisor or the guide book were closed in late September. It was all great and excellent variety from tacos to sopas to chocolate to tuba I enjoyed all of it!

So thrilled I took this tour and early on to boot!

Do yourself a favor and book this tour! It was nothing short of spectacular. Juri was our guide and her personal story was awesome in and of itself and she was very knowledgeable about the area as well. We also visited seven different locations all with delicious food and drinks. We ended at a Gorgeous restaurant that was right on the beach at sunset. I would absolutely do this tour again in a heart beat!

Shawny was a great tour guide. She took us through small streets with great hole in the wall stands. We had some of the best birria tacos we have ever tried. We absolutely recommend this tour if you do get a chance to visit Puerto Vallarta. We will definitely use this tour again next time we return to Mexico.

The most delicious tour in PV! We highly recommend the downtown food tour with Shawny. She was great and super knowledgeable about everything. We are looking forward to going back to our favorite stops on our own now that we know where to go (:

This was amazing! My husband and I took this tour on a hot August day. Our tour guide (Fernanda) was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about the city and its culinary traditions. We were the only ones on the tour, and she customized the tour for our interests. Despite not being a seafood fan and not enjoying spicy foods, Fernanda was able to challenge my palate with delicious options. We stopped at food trucks, drinks stands, and small restaurants we wound never have considered on our own. She also explained how the food was prepared, highlighting sanitary conditions. She led us to places where the locals eat. My husband included beer with his tour. Fernanda picked out coffees for me to sample. We were generally the only Americans at these establishments. We were so full at the end of the tour!
