Our group of 11 took a private city tour of the Puerto Vallarta area through Superior Tours Vallarta on April 16, 2013. We were met at our hotel by our host and driver, Hector, who was 15 minutes early. As he pointed out, he doesn't like to be late. Our transportation was a large and very comfortable van that easily accomodated all 11 of us. From 9am til almost 4pm, Hector took us all over, starting with the lesser visited local areas to see how the non-tourists live and on to the tourist attractions. Then south for stops at a roadside market and a few drinks at a restaurant with a magnificent view of Banderas Bay. Then south again through Mismaloya (Night of the Iguana was filmed there) to a family Tequila factory with plenty of tastings. Lunch was at a terrific restaurant overlooking a river with huge boulders. There was a diver there at the river that dove off the boulders and it looked so dangerous that some of our group found it hard to watch. Then back north with a few more scenic stops and back home to our hotel. Hector was extremely knowlegeable of not only the PV area but all things Mexico. He accomodated our every request and never rushed us in our touring and was professional in every detail.
I wish we had booked another tour or two with Superior Tours Vallarta, but our week went by so fast. They are a very reliable and professional group. Definitely consider using them if you want to see the Puerto Vallarta region. And, by the way, their prices are very reasonable. Our almost 7 hour private tour was a flat $300 (USD) which was only about $27 per person. I believe smaller groups can be well taken care of also. Thanks, Hector!

My elderly parents recently traveled to Puerta Vallarta. As they were travelling alone and needed assistance, we scheduled Superior Tours to pick them up at the airport and drop them off at their resort. As my parents did not meet their driver, Superior Tours contacted my sister to let her know that after two hours of waiting, my parents still had not shown up. As these things go, my parents were fine and had made it to their resort. But had it not been for the care of the Superior Tours, we would not have known what was going on. And, they would not accept reimbursement for their time spent waiting. I am very thankful and impressed with the service.

My wife and I recently completed a tour of the Copper Canyon organized by Superior Tours. Virtually everything was 'superior.' We were very impressed with the arrangements and our guide, Poncho, ranks among the best we have had. Astrid and her crew did a great job and we would not hesitate to use their services again and highly recommend them to others.

We knew Astrid from a previous tour we did through Mexico a couple of years ago. At that time, we were impressed about her knowledge and love for the country and the mexican people, so there was no doubt that we would want to use her agency again for our vacation to PV this year.

The pick-up service at the airport was perfect. We were immediately given some refrehing cool water and quickly transport to the already waiting car. No discussion with timesharing people, no waiting for taxis what so ever!
The excursions that we booked later that week were also perfectly arranged. Clean and decent transport, gentle and knowledgeble staff, and always enough cool refreshments availabe. (so verry much appreciated in the Mexican temperatures)
But outstanding and even 100% better than expected was the Whale watching tour.!
There are more organisations organising this in Banderas Bay, but we were super glad we did book this with Superior Tours as well. Prices were definively not more than we had to pay somewhere else (and lets be honest that is also important for us travelers) but again here the staff was very excelent. They were as enthousiastic as we were, and for us it was the first time we did this and we saw whales so nearby, so imagine!!
But what is even more important, everything is done with respect for the animals as we are invading their territory!
Astrid and team thanks again, and we will defintively will do the whale tour again if we come to Puerto Vallarte
