Traveler Tips

Be ready for cobbled streets, and wear good walking shoes!
Probably best for you if you are at least of legal drinking age if you want to sample the tequila, and non- vegetarians so you don't miss out on the wonderful flavors that makes up so much of Mexican cooking.

Al was great! He showed us some delicious local eats, tips for getting around the area as well as things to do, and provided some history along the way. Highly recommend!
Fun tour!

Bernardo was a fun guide. The eight stops provided a great and interesting variety of local cuisine.
Excellent authentic food tour
Terry_W, Jan 2023
Bernando was an awesome host giving us alot of history and explaining Mexican food very well. It truly felt like an authentic food tour rather than simply tourist restaurants. Highly recommended.
Fabulous Walking taco tour
Sandy_M, Jan 2023
Very informative and delicious walking tour through old town Puerto Vallarta …learned lots! Guide Bernardo was great
Taking me out of my comfort zone.
Jodi_s, Jan 2023
Al was a great guide and took us to places I would never have tried. Tacos on the street, including goat tacos (a first), and a chili relleno taco. We had aquas frescas on the streets and really got a feel for regional cuisine and culture. Also a great way to see more parts of the City rather than just the touristy areas like Zona Romantica.
Best experience
Cheryl_H, Jan 2023
Best food!! Best tour guide Joana❤️A must to do!! It was our 2nd time with Joana and she knows everything there is to know about the food, families and history.
Yummy and excellent tour
Paula_R, Jan 2023
Our guide, Sylvia, was fabulous. Food and location history while we tasted some wonderful dishes. Everything we tasted was different from there previous stop. Portions were generous in comparison to some tasting events. Enough to really get the flavors and essence of each dish. Thank you to all the restaurants and vendors who hosted us.

Must Try The Food Tour in Oldtown.
Myrna_F, Jan 2023
This Food Tour with our tour guide Joana was awesome! Not only was the food at all the venues delicious, Joana gave us little tidbits of the history in the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to sample the flavours of Old Town and Downtown.
Great to learn to eat like a local!!
Trenna_L, Jan 2023
Luis Alba was the best guide throughout the food tour. He knew all the food plus a lot of local history. We even learned a bit about Tequila! It was a great thing to do our first day as we learned how to eat like the locals. I tried many things that I would have missed had I not gone on this tour. I highly recommend!!
Amazing tour!!!!
Amanda_J, Jan 2023
Geo was amazing! He was so knowledgeable about the town, culture, and tequila! It was definitely worth the money, as it was a tour of the town, enough food for 2 meals, and 2 shots of tequila. I would recommend coming hungry so you can get the most out of it. Would be a great experience for anyone!
Vallarta Food and Culture
Bradley_L, Dec 2022
Chris had so many stories and history of the culture, food and history of Puerto Vallarta and the Romantic Zone. I learned so much about the area and was only expecting food. I also thought it would be tacos only and we tried so many Mexican dishes and got super filled up.

Good food tasting experience of Mexican local food and drinks. Enjoy it and the guide’s knowledge about the food and history of PV.
Amazing and bring your appetite!
Yun_R, Dec 2022
We had so much fun! Our guide greeted us with a bottle of water, we had a small group of 5 which was awesome. We had tapas style samplings at 8 places with an opportunity to have a great margarita to go. Edgar was our guide and super friendly, answered all questions and it was quite apparent how much he enjoyed showing us fave foods. Bring your appetite and comfortable walking shoes and have fun!! Gracias Edgar- we had a great time family!
Fantastic way to start your visit to PV
Susan_C, Dec 2022

Great eating and cultural experience
Pat_H, Dec 2022
Sylvie is an excellent guide and my friend and I were so happy with this tour and experience. Definitely recommend and will do again on my next trip to PV as I understand the stops can change from season to season and trip to trip. We only wished we had gone on our 1st week in PV so we would have had tome to return to some of the great places Sylvie took us to. We are from Canada but couldn't change it on the heading which says US
Wonderful Food Tour
Judith_K, Dec 2022
Terrific tour with Silvia. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the history, culture, and food made for an unforgettable and fun tour. What fun time we had !
Great tour for small samples and a few exceptional tacos
Michael_C, Dec 2022
Al was a great tour guide - explained all of the foods we were eating very clearly, and was a wonderful host. I would have though this tour was 5-stars had I not done a taco tour in Cabo a day or two earlier with a different company through Viator. Of our 8 food samples, one was a tiny piece of chocolate at a chocolate shop. Three were handled at an upscale restaurant near the cathedral and were small rolled taco (with FABULOUS mole), a tequila sample, and a tiny piece of flan. The actual tacos we tried were exceptional, but I wish there were more. My favorite item were the agua fresca samples - wonderful! Here's where Cabo vs PV differed: in Cabo the Viator tour gave you a full cup of the agua fresca, several if you'd like! Same with the desserts and the tacos. Outside of the 4 (or so) tacos we tried, everything was little samples - it would be nice to offer a full-sized beverage, dessert, etc.

One of our favorite things in Puerto Vallarta
Jesse_E, Dec 2022
Our guide, Al, was excellent. Before the each stop, he would give some background and history about the food, and this made us appreciate the food more than we would have already. And don't get me wrong -- the food was wonderful in it's own right. We decided to have dinner at one of the restaurants from the tour, and it was amazing. We never would have known about it without the tour. All in all, this was one of our favorite experiences in Puerto Vallarta, and there is a reason this one is top-rated.
