What you'll do

Very authentic and very delicious breakfast and lunch tacos!

A relaxed morning or afternoon of chatting, learning about local finger foods and tasting delicious authentic tacos. A (very) filling taco lunch with a local friend.

​You´ll learn the history of tacos and how tacos are prepared and eaten around Mexico. We will visit up to 5 different taco spots in the central and south neighborhoods. You'll be able to taste 5 to 10 different tacos and many salsas and toppings. On the menu: refried beans, beef machaca, chicharron, beef and pork birria, carnitas, carne asada, baja style fish and shrimp tacos. Plus, coffee, aguas frescas, beer and dessert. And lot's of fun. We'll visit street stands and small taco eateries, all of them family businesses. We will also visit a corn tortilla factory!

After our walking and eating session, you will feel more connected to the fabulous local taco scene and you will be more than ready to continue exploring on your own with more knowledge and confidence. We will also show you additional spots that you can visit later on and give you lots of extra info on how to make your vacation more enjoyable.

Do not miss Taco102 and Taco103!
Enjoy Vallarta by the hand of a proud local.

I am originally from Mexico City, but Vallarta has been my home for almost 10 years now. I have been conducting cultural and gastronomic walks ever since, as I love showing people what this piece of paradise has to offer. After having led a few thousand tours, I know what guests look for in a cultural experience. There is so much to show you!

Together with my co-hosts, we create unique and fun local experiences that you will never forget and that will surely become the highlight of your trip.

Where you'll be

This walk takes place around the two most popular central neighborhoods: downtown and the romantic zone, where some of the city's best eateries are. Walking the area is always fascinating and you'll be immersed in local culture. Other highlights of the area include the Church of Guadalupe, Cuale Island, the Church of the Holy Cross and the famous Emiliano Zapata Market.

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 66 reviews.

Memo was very knowledgeable about the area and his recommendations felt genuine and borne from thoughtful experience of his city. We all sensed that he cared about our experience and offered a magnetic enthusiasm that drew you into a world that would have otherwise been inaccessible on short vacations. Though tacos are a fun, lighthearted food, I now feel a deeper personal connection with the culinary art, culture, and community that delivers such a diverse spectrum of the staple sustenance. 10/10 would follow Memo again on this tour and on more of his tour offerings. Also, we did NOT leave hungry. Thanks Memo!

Memo is phenomenal at what he does. He’s passionate about the culture, and does everything possible to ensure the group is comfortable, safe, and having a great time! The best part of the experience (aside from the amazing tacos, of course!) was that Memo’s very much a human being. Nothing about his tour feels cheesy or rehearsed. I’m sure that regardless of the tour you select, Memo will make it exceptional. Cannot recommend enough!

Memo was awesome! It’s the details that count that may go unnoticed but tell the truth about the person you’re walking with. Someone that walks in front, not just leading the way but caring for your safety by halting traffic, extending his arm behind him shows his level of care. Someone that is greeted with a smile from the locals as well as the business owners shows his sense of community. Someone that integrates his personal experiences and recommendations shows the kind of commitment to what he does. You’re in good hands with this gentleman, book’em!!

Memo was wonderful! We would never have eaten at any of the taco places he brought us to and it felt authentic seeing all the other locals eating with us. He was very kind and had a lot of informative information about tacos I had no idea about! We will be going out and tasting more of these tacos for sure! You definitely need to come hungry and eat only one taco at each place or you’ll never get to all five stands! Haha

This Taco Tour 101 is a must! Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed all the information and amazing tacos that Memo introduced us to. Memo explained about the history of tacos including breakfast, lunch and dinner tacos. We enjoyed tasting at several different authentic and family owned taco restaurants and stands. We had a great time and Memo went over the top to take great care of our needs. We can't wait to reserve our spot for next year and enjoy Taco 102!

Memo was a class act. Good stories and history with most of the locations. He was super protective of traffic and street crossing and had a connection with the vendors we met.
