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.
Great way to get to know the history and culture of Puerto Vallarta!
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.
Great city tour of Puerto Vallarata. This is perfect for people looking to get an overview of PV, it covers all the main sights easily and without hassle, so you can go back and decided later where to spend more time. Highly recommended for first time visitors in Puerto Vallarta.
The City tour was good. When I spoke to someone in Viator office, they had mentioned that the city tour would cover the Botanical Garden too, but they never took us to the Botanical Garden. That was little disappointing or deceiving us.
This was a good tour. MOst of the time was spent on the bus, but enjoyable. Although, if you don't have lunch included.. I suggest that you bring a lunch if you don't want to spend some $$ at the restaurant the tour guide takes you to... there was only one restaurant there so you don't really have a choice. Also note... tour doesn't break for lunch until about 2 or 3pm so for those who need some food at around noon, best to bring some food with you.
We really enjoyed the trip. Good value for your money. Very informative and educational. Very impressed with the knowledge of our tour guide.
It was very good. One thing I would say is that the tour ended way earlier than we were told. It was nowhere near the 7 hours advertised.
Really enjoyed the City Tour. Very interesting and insightful. Beautiful scenery. Recommend.
It was good tour covered things outside of the city also but since its a city tour should probally show more of the city.
I made my reservation from US prior to departing to PVR. I was able to confirm hotel pickup from vendor info on Viator resveration confirm thru email. The tour pickup was on time at the hotel. Our guide was great and he paced the tour according to our group. We got a good overview of the city and downtown areas as well as the communties south of the city, along the cliffs. Lunch was ok at the restaurant but I think they could have choosena better restaurant in the area.
The guide was great, almost too professional. He was very informative, knowledgeable. The bus driver was amazing. He handled that bus like a Volkswagon. My only critique: I would have liked more time downtown.
The service was pleasant, the coach was nice, and the tour guide was knowledgeable.
Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable, and made the trip fun and interactive. However this is a bit of a tourist trap. The first stop is 20 minutes in a jewelry store, and while we and the other couple traveling with us took the option without lunch included, we were forced to stop for an hour at a specific restaurant in an isolated place, so there was no other practical option but to buy lunch there! I know the lifeblood of Puerto Vallarta is tourism but this was a bit too much by blatantly pushing certain businesses to us that was not really the part of the tour we signed up for!
