What to expect
The coastal resort of Puerto Vallarta might be best known for its beaches, but in-the-know travelers head to its picturesque Old Town for another reason: the food. On this walking tour led by a foodie, discover the area’s best places to eat and drink, from family-run eateries to traditional cocktail bars. Your tasting journey begins in Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town, where you’ll make the first of five different stops. Discover under-the-radar, authentic eateries as your guide explains the cultural and historical significance of the foods you sample. Taste a fresh fish taco paired with a cucumber-infused mezcal cocktail or a fiery jalapeño margarita. You’ll even learn how to make the perfect michelada cocktail with beer and fresh salsa. Finally, head to a beachside restaurant for dessert. Your guide will point out Puerto Vallarta’s must-see sights along the way, so first-time visitors will get the perfect primer.

Tacos, Tequila and BERNARDO!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Our most favorite part of the tour was Bernardo! He was an absolute amazing guide, with an authentic voice and true hospitality. It’s hard to imagine a better person to take us through this tour! By far the best tour I’ve ever done! Really loved all the places we visited! Hard to choose just one!

Great afternoon in Zona Romantica
Bernardo was a fabulous host - full of history and knowledge about PV specifically, Mexico in general, the food, tequila and mezcal. We had plenty to eat and it was all delicious. The drinks were amazing - and more than enough! A great way to spend an afternoon despite the heat!

Amazing tour filled with food and alcohol
Amazing tour with our amazing guide victor. Lots of food and alcohol. Best part was making friends with people from our tour group- we all ended up drinking and eating more after tour was done.

We are a couple in our mid 30’s who love food and alcohol! I highly recommend this fun tour

Great Way to Explore PV!
Jul 2021 • Couples
We were able to taste great food and drinks, all while learning about the history of Mexico on this tour. This was a great way to spend the afternoon exploring PV. Our guide, Luis Alba, was fantastic -he is very knowledgeable and fostered a fun and open environment that encouraged guests to get to know one another. This tour was a highlight of our trip!

Exactly what we were looking for, and best tacos EVER.
Definitely recommend this tour and Luis! We had so much fun and learned so much. I would’ve had to do mountains of research to know all he told us about the history, culture and local interest points about PV and MX. most importantly though, the food and drink. We had some *amazing* tacos and margaritas, and we know where to go for authentic delicious meals & spirits, in places we fully enjoyed. If you want to go off the beaten path a little and eat where the locals do, do this tour. We enjoyed the family run restaurants, the hang outs, the entrepreneurial craft brew spot, and chef inspired and run establishments.

Perfect Food and Beverage Tour!
Jul 2021
Sign up for this tour now! I traveled to Puerto Vallarta with 8 of my friends and family. 5 of us went on this tour, and we were so happy we did. Gio was our guide, and he was simply the BEST. He was so knowledgeable and personable. He made us feel like we were family. He brought the entire group together. By the end, we were best friends with everyone on the tour! We loved ALL the food and ALL the drinks. We couldn't have asked for a better way to explore Puerto Vallarta's restaurants and bars!

Best way to explore the local gems!
Jul 2021
I highly, HIGHLY recommend going on this food tour! Victor was our guide for the day and he was nothing short of amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the foods and drinks we were having, and he was also a blast to hang out with for the duration of the tour.

Before taking this tour we hadn't ventured out of our all inclusive resort much, but we're so glad we ended up taking this tour! We got to explore the Romantic Zone (Zona Romantica) and stopped at several local food and drinks stops along the way. We tried a variety of beer, tequila, and mezcal, and had some of the best tacos I've had.

We loved the area so much that the night after our food tour we had to return for more amazing food and drinks!

Be warned: you will get tipsy! This is a tacos and tequila tour, but it's more like a tequila, tequila, tacos, and more tequila tour. We had so much fun with our tour group that this was one of the highlights of our trip.

I definitely recommend doing this early on in your stay at Puerto Vallarta so that you know a lot of the good local spots to go eat at or get a drink at.

A MUST in PV
Jul 2021 • Couples
This tour was my favorite experience while visiting Puerto Vallarta. Our guide, Gio, was extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the tour from the foods and cocktails, to the history of Mexico and where certain cuisines and tequila/mezcal derived from. Every stop during the tour was met with a delicious meal and a unique drink. If you plan on visiting Puerto Vallarta and want amazing food, great company, and a lesson on Mexico and it’s tequila and mezcal, then this is definitely a tour for you!

Best Food and Beverage Tour in Town!!
Jul 2021 • Friends
We had Luis for our taco and tequila tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable about food, alcohol, and Mexican history and culture. He makes learning fun and entertaining. The mezcal and cocktails were excellent! One stop better than the next. Then there were the tacos! Best beer battered fish tacos and tacos al pastor I’ve ever had. Just when this tour hit its peak, it exceeded more expectations! I can’t recommend this tour highly enough. 10 stars!! Thank you Luis for making such a memorable day for me and my friends. Just blown away!
