The Tour driver was very friendly, knowledgeable and on time. Enjoyed the sites and the lunch stop was wonderful.
This tour was really good. We enjoyed the town, the tour of the church was great. Then topped it off with a incredible lunch. I wish we had know all about the stuff to do at the lunch site. At first I thought it was kind of small but until you get into it you don't realize all that is involved.
THE BEST BY FAR.OUR GUIDE JUNE KNEW A LOT ABOUT THE CITY AND ITS HISTORY . I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT PUERTO VALLARTA, BEAUTIFUL CITY...A MUST SEE IS THE CHURCH .
Fun trip ... Tour guide was great. Only problem was our group was mostly Spanish speaking and our Tour Guide would change from one language to the other which was at times hard to follow. The stops on the City Tour were great and the food was good - very much worth the money spent for an all day trip plus wise to include lunch. We really enjoyed the Tour.
I enjoyed the city tour of Puerto Vallarta. You get to visit a church and a couple stores for shopping. The tour felt a little rushed as we were unable to get the photos we wanted due to time constraints. The city tour is well worth it if you want to see different parts of the country and observe the culture.
The tour was excellent and the tour guide especially good.
I had a problem getting details of the tour and finally had to have someone at my hotel call the local office to find out where and when I was to meet. Most travelers have e-mail access but few have active cell phones or printers.
A great way to see the area and to decide what you want to look at more closely. Our guide was knowledgeable and conducted the tour in english and spanish for an argentianian guest. Well worth the price!!
Kudos to Carlos, who was also our guide on our tour to San Sebastian. It is evident he loves his country and is proud to relay to us his exceptional knowledge of her history and customs. He does this with a quiet sense of humor as well, and added a lot to both tours in this way. Always good to take a city tour in a new city to get a good overview and see what you would like to come back to. Fun to go up in the hills for lunch, and of course the obligatory tequila tastings on both tours is always fun. Would highly recommend.
The City tour was good. When I spoke to someone in Viator office, they had mentioned that the city tour would cover the Botanical Garden too, but they never took us to the Botanical Garden. That was little disappointing or deceiving us.
Loved it! We were fortunate to get Gavino, a native born Puerto Vallartan for our tour guide. We enjoyed the entire day.
It was very good. One thing I would say is that the tour ended way earlier than we were told. It was nowhere near the 7 hours advertised.
Really enjoyed the City Tour. Very interesting and insightful. Beautiful scenery. Recommend.
The tour was excellent! The guide Chris was very helpful and the bus driver victor made sure he helped everyone off of the bus. I found that helpfulness was the extra touch that made me enjoy the tour more. Chris was more than willing to answer all of my questions and he was very patient when i really should have been back on the bus but wasn't at the correct time. The bus was clean and comfortable and I will be sure to recommend the tours to any of my friends that will be traveling to Puerto Vallarta. I hope to use the tour company when I travel to Mexico again. I rate the city tour a 10 out of 10!
Excellent tour. Highly recommended. They were on time and pick-up location was great. Tour Guide spoke English very well and the restaurant was excellent. The area was beautiful and the sightseeing was absolutely gorgeous. The shopping was okay; glad it wasn't a long time for that-they hound you too death. Overall, excellent tour.
I absolutely loved the Puerto Vallarta City Tour. If this is your first time in Vallarta, it is best to do this tour early in your visit. We were able to get an excellent overview of the city and the mountains. The tour enabled us to know what areas we wanted to go back to and spend more time. Our tour guide, Christian, was so nice and thoughtful. He went out of his way to accommodate everyone on the tour. Most important, we saw some very beautiful sights along the tour. The Malecon is beautiful, I loved the Catholic Church, and we had just enough time to shop. Other guests at my hotel went to the city via cab. They were not as impressed with the city because they did not know where to go. Furthermore, the tour cost about the same for two people as round trip cab fare. The tour is the better deal and you get a knowledgeable tour guide to show you all the beautiful sights that Vallarta has to offer.
