We loved the Sierra Madre Jeep Adventure tour! We had our two boys, ages 14 and 11 along with us and we all learned so much about Mexico, it's culture, people and history. Our guide Gabriel and driver Fluffy were awesome, very knowledgeable and made the adventure even more fun. Definitely recommend this tour and our special guide and driver!

We had a great time --- seeing the Mexican people as they live was fantastic. The ride was great but the star was our guide Samantha --- she answered our questions and told us about the history of the villages that we visited. The Mexican people we met and their way of life, although simple, was beautiful.

It was one of the funnest days ever. We really liked our tour guide, spoke very good English and was a lot of fun. He knew so much about the areas we went to. Saw a lot of neat places and learned a lot. I would recommend this tour as a must.

The trip took us to many interesting little spots we would have never stopped at on our own. Be prepared to ride in a bumpy, hot, noisy truck, but it was all part of the adventure. The entire day was very enjoyable. The food was great and we got to meet a lot of interesting people along the way. A very nice way to spend a day while in Puerta Vallarta if you want to get away from the crowds on the beach for a day.

The guide, ride, food were good, but I wanted to see more of life in small towns.
