Our group of 6 ladies had a great time on the ATVs. We enjoyed riding through parts of town that we would not otherwise have seen, and the jungle was beautiful. Tequila tasting and snacks were great stop halfway through. Our guides kept us safe riding in front and behind us, managing traffic along the way. We all agreed it was one of the highlights of the trip, and we would book again next time in PV!
I would definitely do this again!

Wonderful ATV tour
Bailee_F, Aug 2022
This atv tour was incredible. Marco was friendly and made sure we were always good. We rode around for close to three hours, got a cold wet towel to wipe off with when we got back, and went through our photographs right away! Great experience!
Best private excursion!

A group of 4.. we loved this excursion! 3 of us have never been to Puerto Vallarta and enjoyed seeing parts of the city that we would never be able to! We stopped and ate and then went up the mountain. Probably one of our favorite excursions that we did this trip. Highly recommend!!! Thank you Tina for being our guide, we loved you!!!

I had a lot of fun on my ATV tour with Edson. The winding roads were fun to ride on. The scenery between the mountains and towns of Puerto Vallarta we’re eye opening.
Great with older teens

We had a great time riding the ATVs with our 16 and 19 year olds. Great service and scenery along the way.
Amazing Fun Tour!

My husband and I had a lot of fun on this private ATV tour. Juan was an excellent guide. We opted for 2 single-rider ATVs so we could both enjoy riding the whole way through. As it was just the 3 of us, we went through some of the less paved/more complex routes but it was so much fun and Juan was patient, letting us determine the pace of the tour. The views through the forest were breathtaking, the ride exhilarating and we got some nice photos taken by our tour guide, Juan. This was certainly a highlight of our trip.
A perfect day!
Sanjay_S, Jun 2022
An amazing father and son experience with Octavio as our leader. A customized day at our pace with a guide who is passionate about what he does! Thank you so much Octavio!

Really awesome fun!
Leanna_L, Jun 2022
I booked this tour because there were so many positive reviews, and the trip did not disappoint. Edson, was a fantastic tour guide that took us out into the cities in the mountains east of the coast of Puerto Vallarta. We road cobblestone streets, dirt roads up into the mountains, and weaved through various neighborhoods on the way back to the tours offices. The restaurant we stopped at half way through the tour is a great stopping point to have a taste of tequila, some food, and a relaxing rest or other beverage in the mountains. This trip can get you very dirty! They can tailor the tour to your riding level. We have ridden quads lots of times so we went fairly fast. If you are new to a quad they can slow it down a little as well! If you can get Edson as your guide, you will have it made!

This was our second time using this tour company. The staff and owners have been incredible both times. I've been to Puerto Vallarta multiple times now and we always make it a priority to book an ATV excursion. It's the best way to see the town! I would strongly recommend this activity to anyone.

The bear part of our trip
Michael_A, May 2022
This was definitely the highlight of our entire trip to Puerto Vallarta. I was a little nervous about getting on the ATVs but our tour guide Marco made us feel so safe and welcomed. We got to ride through the city and see parts of Mexico that you can’t see from your resort. The ride through the jungle was so fun and exhilarating, and the scenery was breathtaking. The tequila tasting and restaurant were a huge plus and made the entire tour perfect. Definitely great for groups and couples!
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for the kind review Michael! We love to hear that you enjoyed your ATV tour with Marco!
Great private excursion!
Suzanne_f, May 2022
Great excursion! Tina was our guide and she was fantastic. The private tour starts with driving your ATV through Puerto Vallarta which was great. Loved seeing the city outside of the tourist area. And then we went up to the mountains where we stopped and had an early lunch as well as tequila tasting. Bring money! From there we went further up the mountain where we stopped for photos over a great lookout. Finish the tour with the ride back down the mountain. I did not want to drive my own so I sat on the back of my husbands. Incredibly comfortable seats. It was a great morning. Lots of fun. Well worth it!
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for the kind review Suzanne! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your tour with Tina! We would be happy to show you more of the beauty Vallarta has to offer, on your next trip here!
Steven_K, May 2022
This was a great experience! The staff was very good and the tequila tasting was surprisingly the highlight! We had a little trouble with one of our ATVs in our group, but after two stalls they fixed the issue. We booked the shorter atv tour (2 hours) and spent half the time in the city and half the time on country mountain roads. If you think you’re going full jungle with water falls or river, that is not the case. Be sure to wear your goggles and mask (provided) and wear clothes you’re good to get dirty. Definitely worth while!
Response from Host, May 2022
Querido Steven, Thank you so much for your kind review. We are sorry if you missed the rivers and waterfalls due to the dry season. On the rainy season (June to November) all those dry streams and waterfalls are full of water and there is not dust at all but weather is something we cannot control. We would love to see you on the rainy season to change your mind :)
Amazing Tour & Tour Guide
John_N, May 2022
This adventure was one of the highlights of an amazing vacation. This excursion was exactly three hours and included tours of parts of the city you would not typically see; a gorgeous tour of the hillsides overlooking the city; and a visit to a quaint restaurant and bar for a quick respite halfway through the tour. It should be noted that ATV tours may not be for everyone. There are definite bumps, so people with back or neck problems may want to skip this. There is dust, and you will wear some of it. Goggles and gaiters are given, and you will be glad you have them. Any concerns I may have had about safety were addressed up front. The equipment was in great shape and the safety training we received was easy to understand. This was important to me because it had been decades since my last ride on an ATV. Edson was an amazing guide from start to finish. He is friendly, knows his routes well and operated with us in a manner that put our safety as his top priority. As mentioned earlier, the tour allows us to see little cities and villages on the way up the mountain that are not on standard tours. You get a real feel for the city on the way up and down the hillside. The tour through the mountain range offers breathtaking views of the hills and valleys behind the city. The photographer on the tour captured a variety of action photos of our trip and a couple of videos that made the moment easy to remember and was totally worth the additional cost. I appreciated Edison’s focus on safety; his clear communication throughout the trip; his enthusiastic and friendly nature as well as his ability to keep the trip on time. We had an amazing time seeing the city and the natural beauty behind it and appreciated the photos so we can remember it long after we leave. An amazing time. Definitely recommend it.

We had a very enjoyable time riding ATV’s through the hills of Puerto Vallarta! Our private guide Marco was excellent and attentive, and customized our ride to our skill level. The stops for a meal and tequila tasting were great as well. Although not super challenging for my husband, (plenty challenging for me though) it was a beautiful ride!
