Traveler Tips

Be ready for cobbled streets, and wear good walking shoes!
Probably best for you if you are at least of legal drinking age if you want to sample the tequila, and non- vegetarians so you don't miss out on the wonderful flavors that makes up so much of Mexican cooking.

Great tour, experienced 8 different spots from street carts to nice restaurants. Our tour guide Silvia was great! Super nice and informative. We started with chilaquiles and Mexican coffee and ended with deserts and a tequila shot. This was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend.

What a fun & delicious tour we had! Eight stops with tacos, fruit beverages, popsicles & more. The photo is the chicken enchilada from our last stop - Gaby’s. So good! Our tour guide Joana was excellent!
Ask for Al for the best experience!
Isabel_S, Apr 2023
This was our first time visiting Puerto Vallarta and this was the most perfect way to get to know the town. We did the tour with Al hours after we landed and it was the best experience! It was such a delight to spend time with him, learning about the town, but more than anything meeting some of the locals and taking in the best flavors you could imagine. We’re already planning on going back soon and we’ll call Al to see which tour he recommends next. Gracias por hacer de nuestra primer visita una experiencia maravillosa!! Héctor e Isabel
A wonderful way to...
Denyse_B, Apr 2023
A wonderful way to experience local cuisine at places off the beaten path. Our favourite was the goat taco and the refreshment stop of fruit infused water was a nice surprise.
Great tour!

Don’t miss this!
Natalie_R, Apr 2023
I used Viator in NYC so I knew this was going to be a great experience. Our guide, Al was knowledgeable, kind, and so fun. The tour was full of amazing food down streets we never would have traveled down, meeting people we never would have have met. The food and drink were amazing and I absolutely love that mom and pop businesses are highlighted in these tours. I highly recommend this tour!
Great tour!
Nithi_R, Apr 2023
Totally worth it!! Edgar was a great guide sharing stories about the city along with the food. A good mix of food stands & restaurants, drinks & ice cream! Don’t bother eating beforehand…you’ll be stuffed!
All you can eat taco
Lakiesha_M, Apr 2023
We had such a good time with Al, the most sweetest man. He was so knowledgeable about every restaurant and the family’s history of they started. His tour was fun and the people we were lucky to be grouped with made it all the most enjoyable.
Definitely worth doing!
Elena_R, Apr 2023
I could not imagine that the food at these simple small places would be of that high quality and so delicious! It really felt like it was home made. We covered seven places and our guide was also mentioning good places outside their program that we passed by.
Highly Recommend!
Lori_M, Apr 2023
We loved our Puerto Vallarta Food Tour. Sylvia was knowledgeable, engaging and made this experience exceptional. Loved Sylvia’s “fun facts”! Really enjoyed meeting the group members! All the food tastings were delicious! Highly recommend this tour!
Great Tour and Fun group
Michael_K, Apr 2023
Chris, our guide was very personable and informative. He seemed to know the owners at the restaurants we visted personally. Our small group got to know each other and we had a pleasant day getting to know new people while tasting great food and having an excellent tour if PV
