Overall rating

Very pleasant tour. On the second floor of the bus you can't always hear the audio guide well but the tour around the city and along the coast is very good. You can disembark at the scheduled stops and wait for the next bus, but this can take up to 1.5 hours. On the other hand, our bus takes a few breaks where we can disembark for around ten minutes, time to take photos or buy some souvenirs. The guide is friendly and notifies us in advance of breaks. He also makes sure everyone is on board before leaving.

This was a great actvity! We were able to see so much of Puerto Vallarta! Our guide was awesome!
