The bus had steps up to the back 8 seats where there was no view. We didn't see the Malecon. Just the church and a jewelry shop. Then took a long bus ride to a distillery. The bus needs shocks. Did not like the fact we drove all the way into the marina over all the speed bumps just to find out the people that were to be picked up had gotten a different ride. How about communicating that to the tour guide through a dispatcher?
I thought Part of the tour was to see the marina, we just saw a house that was for sale. Lame.

Not happy with our tour, basically was in the van most of the time with 15 minutes at the Malecon--no mention at all about the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe one of the main historical landmarks, we had to go search it out on our own in 15 mins, then got out to the Romantica Zone to shop at an opal store...much more than 15 minutes, but then you know the tour guide is getting a commission of sales, same with the tequila factory and even at the restaurant. We had paid for the lunch with our tour 15 US each we decided on the fish platter and we're definitely prepared to pay the difference, but we were charged double the amount...this was brought to the guides attention and he argued with us and told us not to discuss with the restaurant owner--so basically the lunch cost us a total of 60 US when it was 600 pesos 38.40. It was apparent to us that the guide was more concerned that we spend time at places where he would collect his commissions. We booked this tour based on the other reviews, so this might be an isolated case. Not recommend based on our experience.

I absolutely loved the Puerto Vallarta City Tour. If this is your first time in Vallarta, it is best to do this tour early in your visit. We were able to get an excellent overview of the city and the mountains. The tour enabled us to know what areas we wanted to go back to and spend more time. Our tour guide, Christian, was so nice and thoughtful. He went out of his way to accommodate everyone on the tour. Most important, we saw some very beautiful sights along the tour. The Malecon is beautiful, I loved the Catholic Church, and we had just enough time to shop. Other guests at my hotel went to the city via cab. They were not as impressed with the city because they did not know where to go. Furthermore, the tour cost about the same for two people as round trip cab fare. The tour is the better deal and you get a knowledgeable tour guide to show you all the beautiful sights that Vallarta has to offer.
