What people are saying about Jalisco

We had a really fun time doing the evening taco tour! Manuel was an awesome guide with excellent knowledge of the different foods we were able to try. Fortunately, are entire group was made up of some fun loving people which made for an entertaining evening! The food was spectacular, authentic, and it was nice to get “off the beaten path”. We were met with warmth and gratitude at every stop. We have since revisited many of the restaurants. This was hands down one of the best things to do in Puerto Vallarta!

Wonderful tour, it was as described. Our tour of the market was very informative setting the stage for the actual class which was delightful. Fabulous setting, great assistance, Wonderful food and very useful education followed by a scrumptious meal. YES, I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in broadening their horizons in culinary enjoyment!!!!

Miel was an EXCELLENT tour guide. She made us all feel so welcome and she was highly knowledgeable. The food was great and it felt like we were being a given a personal tour by a friend. If possible I would suggest requesting Miel specifically for the tour.

It was a brilliant tour with Bernard. I went alone but the group were cool and we learnt lots about tacos and tequila

The tour took us to some great places that we hadn’t been. Great food, cocktails, people and information. Thanks Gio!
