A great way to see the area and to decide what you want to look at more closely. Our guide was knowledgeable and conducted the tour in english and spanish for an argentianian guest. Well worth the price!!

Kudos to Carlos, who was also our guide on our tour to San Sebastian. It is evident he loves his country and is proud to relay to us his exceptional knowledge of her history and customs. He does this with a quiet sense of humor as well, and added a lot to both tours in this way. Always good to take a city tour in a new city to get a good overview and see what you would like to come back to. Fun to go up in the hills for lunch, and of course the obligatory tequila tastings on both tours is always fun. Would highly recommend.

Loved it! We were fortunate to get Gavino, a native born Puerto Vallartan for our tour guide. We enjoyed the entire day.

The tour was excellent! The guide Chris was very helpful and the bus driver victor made sure he helped everyone off of the bus. I found that helpfulness was the extra touch that made me enjoy the tour more. Chris was more than willing to answer all of my questions and he was very patient when i really should have been back on the bus but wasn't at the correct time. The bus was clean and comfortable and I will be sure to recommend the tours to any of my friends that will be traveling to Puerto Vallarta. I hope to use the tour company when I travel to Mexico again. I rate the city tour a 10 out of 10!

Excellent tour. Highly recommended. They were on time and pick-up location was great. Tour Guide spoke English very well and the restaurant was excellent. The area was beautiful and the sightseeing was absolutely gorgeous. The shopping was okay; glad it wasn't a long time for that-they hound you too death. Overall, excellent tour.

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.

This was a great tour. My wife and I were celebrating our honeymoon and wanted a day to look around the city. Our tour guide was very friendly and professional. This was a very comprehensive tour! Keep in mind that there is some shopping on this tour. If you do not like shopping, then this may not be the tour for you. However, there were plenty of things we did that were not shopping related.

This is a great tour! We took this tour at the beginning of our trip, which was extremely helpful. Not only did this tour take us to places we wouldn't have gone but helped familiarize us with places we wanted to return to. Plus, the tour guide was very amusing. Lunch is separate but the restaurant is awesome. If you have the time and want to see the city and hear a little history, take this tour.
