Our food tour with Gio was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the food and culture that it came from and seemed excited to be sharing that knowledge with us. He always let us know what was coming next so we had time to think about it - something I really appreciated. And we now have a list of places we want to go back to. Gio is friendl and outgoing - always able to answer questions. He brought the group together - we began as strangers and ended the tour being friends. I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience a bit of Puerto Vallarta that you won't see on your own.

Fun walking tour of the city and local eateries! It would be difficult to have this experience without the wonderful guides that guide you around the town. The food is delicious! My favorite was the octopus and marlin chimichanga (I wish I had one right now). This was an incredibly fun experience but I do think it was overpriced for the amount of food that was provided. Everything was sample size and there were two drinks included as stops so the food was limited. Additionally, they should tell you the order in which you are traveling because we ended on a two for one tequila chocolate place and if they told us that we would have loaded up on more food. So yes it is a fun experience but a little overpriced and not transparent!

What an excellent experience! This food tour was a super way to get off the beaten path and actually get to see Puerto Vallarta a little closer. Our host, Amanda, was very knowledgeable about the history of the food and the places we stopped. She really tried to tailor make this tour for each individual person.

This was such a great tour! Amanda is very knowledgeable, experienced, thoughtful and approachable. I had a great time with my tour mates as well! It’s always nice to meet new people. The food was absolutely great and Amanda is a very inclusive host. For example, I couldn’t take so much of the heat from one of the tacos and she asked the restaurant to make me another one. I would highly recommend this tour, it’s certainly one of my favorite food tours so far in my traveling experience, especially as a solo travelista! Also, they have more stops than just tacos - mole, ceviche, juices, etc. It made the experience very unique and well-rounded.

G was our guide. His presentation was awesome. He provided maps to us which had street locations of all of the eateries and vendors numbered in specific order to tour "Tacos, Mole, Sea Food and more." G was very knowledgeable culturally, authentic, and enjoyable experience.
