Don’t add anything to your “paid” for lunch!!!!
AMy_R

The tour was great and the guides were wonderful. The only problem I had was the lunch that I paid extra for that was included. We were given fish options, 3 of us out to 7 were told we could get the shrimp for the difference in price. We also order a side of guacamole. When we got the check for 3 upgrades to shrimp and an order of guacamole we were charged $183.00. My only feeling on this is do the tour and get only what comes with the lunch. The restaurant was there to hustle more money out of travelers

The tequila tasting, the knowledgeable tour guide and the lunch was the best part of the experience. I haven’t even mentioned the handmade leather shop, the silver store, and the many photo opps.

Really good price- but you pay in other ways
Jeremy_E

This was a very low priced tour, and there is a reason why: the tour goes to a chocolate shop, jewelry shop, a leather shop, and a tequila distillery where you can buy items. There are a few stops to get out of the van and take photos, but it’s limited on cultural and historical touring and more on shopping at the tour stops. It’s a really good price but beware of all of the required tourist shopping stops.

The comfort of the bus ride, the tour guide was excellent and the sites were very interesting. Our tour guide Gorge was excellent in that he provided interesting but little known facts about the region, history and people.

This tour is exactly what we had hooped for. Informative, friendly guides, lunch in the mountains by distillery was amazing, and of course the tequila tasting was cool. Not much of a tequila drinker, so I was hesitant. LOVED it. Julio was a real gem and truly made the experience fun! Our guide Carlos was very knowledgable. Would def be telling our friends about this one!

The tour guide made the difference.

Mario was a very professional tour guide and funny and knowledgeable. He made a shopping tour seem like a tour that showed the interesting places that I wanted to see not the most popular shopping stores. They spent way too much time at the tequila factory and everybody in the group except me got drunk or threw up from drinking too much. The restaurant food was okay but when it came time for the bill they added a charge for service which was like 25% and they were very rude to us when it came time to examine the bill and pay for it. I know this was out of the control of the tour company but they should have been watching the group instead of hanging out with the other tours guys and really not noticing that everybody was getting drunk and out of control.Plus the two man band that played while we were eating set their loudspeakers right in front of where we were eating, and we could not hear each other talk and I had to get up and request that they move so that we can hear each other. My biggest complaint and normally I do not even write reviews was a young lady that took all the pictures during the day and was very professional and took some great pictures. She came around and solicited my purchasing of the pictures of mydelf and I agreed to him cuz they were good pictures but she also promised to email them to me after I paid her cash 200 pesos . Said to expect the photos in my email box that evening, last night.I have yet to see those pictures sent to my email address as promised. So I will give them ju itanother 24 hours. I gave the two a scoreof fun 5 because the tour guide was a ⁵ 5buf the rest of the tour was kind of average as far as the places we went and there was too much shopping so I think they should eliminate the shopping part and just stick to the reason that was what we came for anyway and definitely cut back on the amount the tequila tasting part of the tour was kind of sickening because they gave the group as much as they wanted to drink and then sold them as many bottles as they could carry back on the plan. So I will wait to hear back from the tour company or get my pictures before I make a final djustment to this review.

“It’s Time For Fun! Tequila Anyone?”
Amy_F
, Mar 2022
The overall city tour was great, with the leather museum and Tequila distillery Tour being the highlight of the day! Mario was a great tour guide and extremely informative. However, the silver facility tour was a complete negative! Sales people were rude and pushy…yet it didn’t completely wash out the fun tour vibe. Great family fun experience, and we will definitely recommend this tour via social media, friends and family.

A boring mediocre trip

The 40 minutes it took in morning to get on board drive to marina to yet board another bus. Horrible. In 2016 we got our tour in old town toured the glass factory walked a swinging bridge saw Herbie VW Liz Taylor's place. Stopped at le knife to take picture. Our guide was really funny spoke perfect English too.

Don’t waste your time and money you can tour the city on your own thats what i did at the end. The tequila tasting is a waste of time and the food was horrible. Our guide Mario did not talk about the history of the church or the malecon, etc.

A back roads shopping trip through the mountains!
Martin_S
, Feb 2022
This was an interesting trip. We saw a "few" sights in Puerto Vallarta but not as many as we expected. Our drive Mario took us to a jewelry store, a leather store, a coffee store and a tequila factory where we had lunch but without paying more you got a very basic lunch - there was an attempt to upsell you. The tequila factory is way up in the mountains and you got on some dirt roads to get there. You do get to see a lot of the areas but you get the feeling he's getting kickbacks on all the buying. I guess for the price it's not a bad tour!

Fun trip - but be COVID wary!
DENISE_K

Fun trip. Mario was a good guide. The driver was driving a little fast on the curves in the highway. Paid for inclusive lunch. The fish was delicious but the beef kabob was like shoe leather. Good company on the bus. Found out at the end of the tour that our fellow travellers from the USA were NOT vaccinated. I think in these times vaccination and proof of vaccination should be mandatory on these excursions. The ad indicated temperatures would be taken of all travellers - this did not happen.

DO NOT GO ON THIS TOUR IF YOU VALUE YOUR TIME!
Anonymous

DO NOT GO ON THIS TOUR IF YOU VALUE YOUR TIME! 90% of this tour was spent either driving or in shops. I was picked up on time and the first stop was a chocolate shop a quick few samples and then off. Next we stopped at malecon boardwalk for maybe 10 minutes while the guide was parking then upto the church for a quick look and then back to the van. That was all the sightseeing that was included. Next we stopped as a silver shop that even with the 30% discount was still pretty pricey, Next was the leather store even though everyone on my tour asked for no more shops. After this we had a fairly long drive to stop at a little coffee shop and then onto the tequila distillery for another demonstration and lunch. Lunch was disappointing as it was all combos for 2 people and being on my own and not very hungry was told the cheapest thing I could get was 1 meat skewer with salad and rice which was 290 pesos. Then you drive back to the hotels. No stopping at at viewpoints along the way even though you could see on the drive there could have been some beautiful stops. Very disappointing activity for my first day and an absolute waste of money and time. The free walking tour I had with a different company the next day was much better and much more informative. The only good thing about yhis tour was the tour guide Thomas and the photographer Ramon both super friendly and trying to do the best they could do with a terrible itinerary.
