Wonderful Food Tour! Highly Recommend!
Carter_N, May 2023
Edgar was excellent. Very knowledgeable, great attitude, and gave us wonderful food. Our tour happened be during the Pride events so Edgar had to navigate us though some unexpected situations and he did so with aplomb. Highly recommend for anyone wanting good food and great drinks
A must do experience

What an amazing way to discover amazing taco and cocktail places around downtown. Our tour guide Sylvia (sorry if miss written) was the absolute best. Such a great energy and very interesting, thank you so much for starting our trip off in the best way. Super worth it :).
Taste of the town!
Sergio_O, May 2023
The experience was a perfect mix of learning, great atmosphere, great food, and the drinks were all on point. Gio was an amazing guide who kept us laughing, showed us his knowledge of the different types of tequila, mescal, and raicilla. It was just the right amount of food to keep you going and not get too full. Definitely by the end you were ready to go back to any of the restaurants to eat up more! Highly recommend. Come thirsty and a little hungry!
Great way to try new places!
Abby_F, May 2023
This was our first time in PV and the only thing I wish is that I did this sooner. We had so many great places for food and drink that I wish we were able to go back to each one. Our guide, Sylvia, did a fantastic job telling us about the food and place that faces us a great idea of where everything came from.
Awesome experience

Excellent drinks and food. Unlike some other tours you aren't overfed but definitely won't go home hungry. The tour gives you some good local drink/food history and gives you a good tour around the Romantic Zone. Highly recommend.

A big thumbs up food and drink tour!
Marc_J, Apr 2023
Edgar was a great tour leader sharing his extensive knowledge of tequila and mezcal plus unique insights about each of our food tastings that only an experienced Puerto Vallarta “local” would have. Definitely one of the best food and drink tours that my husband and I have taken!
We had an amazing time...
Sarah_J, Apr 2023
We had an amazing time with our group and Edgar as our host. He was very knowledgeable and attentive to everyone. He picked out some great spots for us to go to - always the benefit of a tour - places you might not know to go to. We did go to one spot I had saved in my research of Puerto Vallarta. We highly recommend doing this tour
Awesome foodie and tequila tour
Larry_S, Apr 2023
Our guide, Louis was very knowledgeable and knew the culture and food , he answered all our questions about tequila and mezcal, We had a great time. I highly recommend this tour if you like authentic food and good drinks, and ask for Louis.
This tour was a blast!
Chris_F, Apr 2023
This tour exceeded all expectations. Edgar, the tour guide, was a really fun and nice guy. I learned a lot. There were some fun surprises on the tour, but I won’t spoil the fun. I highly recommend this tour. I was solo but I didn’t feel solo. Everyone in the group became fast friends…makes sense… we all like tequila and tacos. And there is plenty of both. Everything was delicious.
Fantastic experience
Bradley_F, Apr 2023

Chris was very friendly and knowledgeable so we all learned a lot about not only Mexican food and drink but he also provided some very useful tips on how to really enjoy our Puerto Vallarta cultural experience.
First Day Priority
Sean_D, Apr 2023
We took the tour on our first full day in PVR, and we're so glad we did. Luis Alba, our guide, was simply excellent. We learned so much about the local food scene, tequila and mezcal. A few of the restaurants became our favorites for the week. This is definitely one of the best decisions we made in our trip planning. Tips for travelers - wear comfortable shoes and arrive on time hungry and thirsty. There is so much food and drink on this tour.
