We enjoyed our tour of some of the off-the-path parts of Puerto Vallarta, and had some excellent tacos! We appreciated the diversity of taco types, neighborhoods and vendors. We go back to all of them again if we had more time. It’s a lot of food, so some of our group could not eat the final one. Don’t snack too soon before the tour!

Great tour. Great guide (Irma). My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. If you want to see the real Puerto Vallarta, this tour is the one for you. If we're ever back we'll be getting with Irma for another day around town.
