Your not told you go to someone’s house and sit on their patio. Very uncomfortable environment
The environment was very uncomfortable. You show up at the owners condo and are escorted to their back patio. First thing you are offered is mesquite spray. The guide was very informant but the owner was just shy of rude. As the he was speaking she would yell from inside her house and interrupt him. At the end when they discovered we weren’t going to but tequila from them we were quickly escorted out. The actual speaker was very nice and knowledgeable though. In the right setting it could have been very nice.

We apologize you did not feel comfortable in our outdoor covid friendly patio with a marina view , it's one of the things our guests like best and comment on frequently. October is rainy season, this means humidity and mosquitos, we offer repellant as a polite courtesy at the beginning of the tasting. I overheard you and your guests say "this is our first time here in October and it will be our last" Many folks make the mistake of not checking the weather before they book their vacation. My guides are extremely knowledgable but as the owner I sometimes know the answer to more specific queries. I'm so sorry if it came across rude, I was just trying to be helpful. It was not my intention to interrupt or yell. When you asked me to call you a taxi ,I happily obliged, the tasting was over, I told you the taxi was outside, my apologies if you thought you were being quickly escorted out, again , not my intention. At Vallarta Tequila Tastings the most important thing is that our guests have a fun, enjoyable and informative tasting, by the sound of your laughter and comments to me after the tasting by other people in your group I believe we accomplished that. There is never any pressure to take home a souvenir. I hope you will give us a do-over next time you are in town and choose the "we can come to you option" perhaps this would be a better fit. Thank you for the review.

Appreciating tequila
Sep 2021
Tequila is my hard alcohol of choice. This experience made me enjoy it even more. I loved the use of orange, apple and chocolate to enhance the flavors of the tequilas.

Tequila, A proper tour!
Sep 2021
Wow! What a fun activity this was with our friends while visiting PV! Alice was an amazing guide on our Tequila adventure. We learned so much about the different varieties and the process of how it's made. Every tasting was paired with DELICIOUS food that was created to compliment the flavors of each tasting. We really enjoyed it so much and will recommend this to other friends who visit PV. Thank you!

Fantastic Tequila Tasting Experience!
Sep 2021
This experience was, by far, the most enjoyable activity we all did when visiting Puerto Vallarta. We enjoyed the tastings, and the pairings of food. The history as told by Alice was extremely interesting and valuable. Alice was a phenomenal host for us. We will recommend this Tasting to all our friends!

Delicious, Fun, Interesting, Worth it!
Jul 2021
This was such a wonderful experience! Alice, who led us through the tasting, was knowledgeable, passionate, entertaining, and kind. The spirits felt and tasted very special and the food was excellent. We learned so much about the agave and the ways the various alcohols are prepared, as well as some traditional lore and reasoning behind the parings. The mole enchilada with mezcal was something to be remembered! Also, the staff went above and beyond in helping celebrate my partner's birthday which made things even more special. Thank you again.

Tequila Education
Jun 2021
Tasting took place at a private condo on the harbor. Very cozy. We had Alice present the course. It was very educational on the technics of making tequila. The origins of tequila (along with a map). And finally we got down to actually tasting. I first thought the first one was excellent, but the tastings progressed to better and better ones- as fine as cognac. Because each tasting is rather large I recommend taking a taxi or Uber (Uber is not in Nuevo Vallarta though).

Excellent Tequila Tasting Experience
May 2021 • Friends
We had a wonderful time doing this tequila tasting. Roxy was knowledgeable and had a passion for the amazing flavors and benefits tequila has to offer. We learned so much and I will forever be able to enjoy tequila in a different way. The service was impeccable, they even walked us through a shortcut to guide us to dinner. (Which Corrina recommended the restaurant and it ended up being one of the best meals I have ever had)

My only regret is not doing the chocolate pairing, but I suppose it gives me an excuse to come back! Thank you Vallarta Tequila Tastings for a wonderful unique experience.

Food & Tequila Pairing is a CAN'T MISS!
May 2021
WOW is all I can say! This was our 2nd experience with Vallarta Tequila Tastings and it was still a 10/10. This time around we did the Food & Tequila pairing in our villa (previously had done the Connoisseur) and I would highly recommend that to anyone weighing their options. The food was incredible and the artisan tequilas that April and Corinna paired with it made our journey through the world of Tequila an unforgettable experience. We had 2 major wine snobs in our group and they were shocked to find out that tequila can be sipped and enjoyed in a similar fashion to wine. To say we were all blown away is an understatement.

Thank you VTT team for continuing to bless us tourists with your knowledge and spirit.
