Joana was an amazing guide. We appreciated the information we learned about food, history of the vendors and Mexican people. Although we've been visiting Puerto Vallarta for over 25 years, we saw and experienced new foods and locations that were new to us. I wanted to learn more about the Mecican culture. The variety of stops on the tour were excellent. All 3 of our group were impressed by the tour. Whether this us your first visit to Puerto Vallarta or you've been here many times, we highly recommend that you take this tour.

Fantastic local guide and thoughtfully curated stops along the way! Wonderful choice to discover the history of the agave plant, in all its incarnations. Easy walk, lovely tour! Would definitely come back again :)
