This was our second time doing this tour. We brought our family with us and every one of us left full, informed and thoroughly entertained. Just a fantastic experience all the way around. Our guide, Joana was so incredible. Her love for this beautiful city really shined through and her kindness made everyone feel like family. If you’ve done this tour before don’t worry about it being the same…it won’t be. But it will still be amazing.

This tour was amazing! We went the day after our wedding with 23 of our guests! We booked a private tour and Sylvia and Miel were our guides. They explained everything so well, including letting us know ahead of time that we would have to split into 2 smaller groups for part of the tour due to the size of our group and the size of the restaurants. They also took great care of 2 of my guests who became sick (not due to the tour) and made sure they had transportation back to our resort. They taught us about the history of the food and the neighborhood in Puerto Vallarta we were in. 10/10 would do it again! The tacos were amazing and the guides were amazing! They were very efficient and attentive, so we did not have to spend much time waiting even though we were visiting restaurants that were also open to the public. Very well organized!

I took the whole family out Saturday to celebrate Father’s Day. My dad, step mom, husband and sons ages 10 and 12 years did the Bucerías food tour. We all loved it! We were so full after! All the stops were wonderful! Erick was fabulous, and full of knowledge. This is our 3rd food tour with this company. We have loved all of them!! We have done the Vallarta taco tour as well as the Pitillal food tour, and they have all been fabulous!! Don’t hesitate! Book now!

Gio was amazing! He took myself and my husband on a tour along with Emma and Owen. We got to go into restaurants that we wouldn’t have been able to with a larger group, and every single taco and drink we tried was fantastic. Gio was clearly close with a lot of the locals and was super knowledgeable about the drinks and tacos we were trying — he even showed us a few videos showing how the agave is processed. If you’re looking to sample some of Puerto Vallarta’s tastiest food and drinks but aren’t ready to set out on your own, I can’t recommend this tour enough!

Thank you for your wonderful review! We're thrilled to hear that you, your husband, Emma, and Owen had such a fantastic time with Gio. It's great to know that the smaller group size allowed you to explore more intimate restaurants and enjoy every taco and drink. Gio’s local connections and knowledge clearly made your experience special, and we’re glad you found the agave processing videos fascinating. Your high recommendation means the world to us, and we can’t wait to welcome you back! Saludos, Paul M

Will be the highlight of your trip…

My boys are 14 and 9, whole family ate everything, boys passed on but one taco, the pepper wrapped shrimp, the beef cheek and al pastor were the highlights. We love spicy and at every place please for the love of god try the spicy options, they are multi decade recipes passed down for your enjoyment.

Our guide was great, solid local knowledge and easy going. We didn’t take the whole 3.5 hours, had 7 different tacos, the best churro you’ve ever had in your entire damn life and a delicious pineapple agave alcohol beverage at the end that took about 2 minutes to inhale.

Order cervezas as you go, enjoy this early in your trip so you know where to go back to later.

We booked this food tour last minute as something quick for the end of our vacation and it definitely didn't disappoint. Sylvia was our tour guide and she is AMAZING! She is very knowledgeable about the culture, food and the beautiful city. She made sure we were well fed with a variety of different foods. Highly recommend this tour and Sylvia as your guide.

I’ll start off with saying Go on This Tour! This was one of the most enjoyable and informative tours I’ve done in Vallarta. Joanna was an amazing guide. Not only was she very knowledgeable and conscious of keeping our group together, but an all-around great person.

The restaurants and vendors we visited provided delicious tacos, carnitas, coffee, chocolate, flan and more!

Sign up for this tour and step away from the Malecon to experience a little bit of true Vallarta.
