The tour was both educational and adventurous! Miel García was our tour guide and she did an excellent job at making the group feel welcomed and made learning fun. We walked to various local restaurants and food carts around town. At each stop we sampled different cultural dishes, cocktails, and tequila. While we ate, Miel would talk to us about what we were about to eat and drink while providing context about how it pertains to Mexico’s culture. The tour also helped us familiarize ourselves with Puerto Vallarta as it was our first time here. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn more about Mexico’s culture while enjoying great food and conversations!

Definitely an adventure that I wasn’t expecting to be as informative about food, drinks, and culture. Luis was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. He takes you on a walking tour and teaches you how to really taste Tequila. The food was incredible and gives you a taste that you won’t find at the touristy food places. The unusual happened that has probably not ever happened on this tour. Our group of 9 connected so much that we continued for hours together after the tour ended. A truly remarkable experience! Don’t miss this chance to experience Old town Puerto Vallarta and meet new people along the way.

We always do food tours in cities we visit. We stayed in the Zona Romantica so it worked out perfectly to check out different food and mezcal options with a pro. Miel was that pro. She has a culinary background and we learned a lot. We visited 8 places, of which two were just drinks. We loved that most were family run. We paced ourselves so we weren’t uncomfortably full or too buzzed. It was a fun 4 hours with Miel and we discovered food we may not have tried. Also my husband and I loved the private tour in light of Omicron. Highly recommend😊

WoW! We spent an incredible afternoon with new friends including our amazing tour guide. Victor. We learned the PROPER way to drink tequila (and it doesn’t involve salt and lime). Food was excellent and the history lesson was engaging! Best way to meet new people, try some new food and learn the difference between tequila and mezcal.

My husband and I did this Mexology tour yesterday and really enjoyed it. Our guide, Gio, was wonderful. We learned so much about the difference between tequila and mezcal and all of the food that we consumed! Gio also shared the history of Puerto Vallarta and Mexico. What a great guide! If you enjoy experiencing the food, beverages and culture of the places you visit, this is the tour for you! We highly recommend it.
I would also like to thank the office of Vallarta Food Tours. Our flight was cancelled so we arrived in Puerto Vallarta later than expected. They kindly helped us reschedule our tour. We were so happy to be able to take this tour!

Giovanni was a spectacular guide. Very well educated on the history of the food and the area. The tour was about 3.5 hours and proceeded at a leisurely yet never boring pace. This group really does a fantastic job in presenting Puerto Vallarta drinks and food. We have taken the food tour. It was excellent. We will be doing two more tours with them. Not only are the tours fun but we learn where to find great food.

We did this Mexology Tacos & Tequila Tour on December 27th. Our group of ten was the perfect size to get to know one another and our foodie guide, Bernardo, was fantastic! There was a perfect blend of tasty tacos and tasting new (new to us) varieties of alcoholic beverages. An extra stop at a churros stand, along the way, was an added bonus! Very fun! We would definitely recommend this walking tour.

My wife and I have found that Puerto Vallarta is truly one of the most hospitable vacation places we’ve been to. We try and embrace new experiences especially when it comes to food.
We both love tacos and tequila and found this tour that fit the bill. Not only did we have a fairly large samplings of both but our guide Bernardo was well versed in the history and differences of each. He knew regional and cultural vagaries that define them. From the many types of agave that the numerous varieties tequila is made from and how they are created. Top that with some of the best Mexican delicacies in Puerto Vallarta we were able to explore tastes that made us smile even without the added stimulation of the drink that originated from Mezcal and that even included a local moonshine called “Raicilla”.
Bernardo went above and beyond with his choices for us and even got my wife to eat an unusual snack of a deep fried grasshopper (totally optional) which we all enjoyed.
My personal favorite taco was a extremely fresh, melt in your mouth fish (snapper) taco that I added a zesty habanero sauce on. Yum!
