Our tour with Miel was the highlight of our trip in puerta Vallarta. We were only in town for a couple days and like many visitors wanted to explore as authentically as we could. Miel exceded our expectations. Her personal culinary knowledge as a trained chef paired with her love of hospitality made it evident that we had found someone special to show us around. If you’re lucky enough to have Miel as your guide I highly suggest picking her brain about culture and cuisine- she has a wealth of knowledge and personal flare. The tacos were fantastic and the local white label Raissa was a standout. Don’t think about it, just book the tour.

Bernardo was fantastic! Very informative on the local food, drinks, and culture. This was the first thing we did on our trip and it opened our eyes to things we would never have done. I highly recommend this tour for your stay in Puerto Vallarta.
