Joana was an amazing guide. We appreciated the information we learned about food, history of the vendors and Mexican people. Although we've been visiting Puerto Vallarta for over 25 years, we saw and experienced new foods and locations that were new to us. I wanted to learn more about the Mecican culture. The variety of stops on the tour were excellent. All 3 of our group were impressed by the tour. Whether this us your first visit to Puerto Vallarta or you've been here many times, we highly recommend that you take this tour.

Joana was a great guide. She was pleasant, knowledgeable and always concerned with everyone's well being. The other people taking the tour were fun and exchanged information on where they had been. The food was great. The experience was one that needed to be repeated again and again.

Plain and simple: restaurants are very different in Mexico than they are in the US. What I loved about going on this food tour is the amount of "street" food we got to try along with visiting traditional restaurants and stores. I think it's better to go on a local tour (our guide Ricardo was excellent) than to try to explore on your own. Being a shy American, I probably wouldn't have gone up to a taco cart and bought something. I loved Concepcion's tuba water! I wish we had something like that in the US, but I will just have to go back to Vallarta!
