First we had a great food tour of Downtown Puerto Vallarta with Amazing Amanda. We had been on an evening food tour with her last year, and so were thrilled when she turned out to be our guide this time around. Two Canadians did not show up for the tour, so it was just the three of us and Amanda. We explored all sorts of delicious corners of PV. Amanda is knowledgeable and passionate about food and happy to answer questions. We had a great time with her and would highly recommend this tour. Tuba water~ who knew! Two days later we made our way to nearby Pitillal where we met up with Superlative Shawnie. She lives in Pitillal and takes great pride in showing off her town with it's lovely plaza and beautiful church. She took us to great stops that we would never have found on our own and introduced us to some new tastes. Again, it was just the three of us with Shawnee, so she was very kind to help us find a few items we had been searching for (Milagros, watch band) along the course of our tour. She is an entertaining story teller and we really had fun with her. At the end of both Shawnie's and Amanda's tour they polled us for our favorite stop. Everything was so good that this was a difficult task, but oh those tamales! Vallarta Food Tours is a well run business, easily booked and all information provided (directions, maps, handy lists of all the places visited). Easy walking, but wear sensible shoes for cobbled streets. Both tours were about 3 hours in length. Highly recommended for those wanting to experience authentic local food with great guides!
