What our clients are saying

Our guide was excellent. She welcomed us warmly, showed us the hot spots of the city, let us try all kinds of food one can only dream of and gave us an overall feeling of being looked after.My boyfriend and I attended this food tour led by Shaunie (whose energy was absolutely electrifying) and were very pleased with how much we learned about the food and the town simply from being guided by her.

I highly recommend taking this food tour early on your trip to Puerto Vallarta! We toured with Amanda, who was fun and knowledgable. Not only do you learn about the local food and the history of Puerto Vallarta, but you get a guided tour through the streets of the city, which really help you get familiar for the rest of your trip. Doing this tour early helps you plan the remainder of your vacation! - Jessica from Texas

We did the Vallarta by Road tour and it was incredible. Shawnee our guide was awesome and knew so much about the culture and history. We learned a lot! She took us to local churches and other spots to take in the real culture - off the beaten path and away from the tourism. We saw the real “working” Mexico. - Kamo from Ohio
