Puerto Vallarta City Tour
Then, you'll continue on to the city's downtown, driving through 'El Pitillal', one of the popular suburbs. At the sea horse, you'll get off the bus to take an information walk, looking at some of the important buildings and monuments like the city hall and the main church. On this part of the tour, you'll have time for shopping.
On the way back to the bus, you'll walk through the Cuale River Island, a beautiful botanical garden. After this, you'll travel to the south of the bay, where you'll visit a raicilla (tequila) factory to learn about the elaboration process. Last but not least, you'll drive into the rainforest and stop at a restaurant surrounded with lush, green vegetation next to a river, with the chance of having lunch (optional) before returning to your hotel.

We have taken many of your,tours and they have all been wonderful This tour was OK but did not cover much of what was discussed in the advertisement. We never stopped at the Marina area. When we were downtown the guide only mentioned the city hall and never talked of,the architecture of any buildings. We did go to the church but spent most of,the time in a jewelry store. We never saw any botanical gardens. It was called a city tour but most of,the day was not in the city. The guide spoke both Spanish and English and I think he did not give us all the info in English. The trip for lunch which was very good was up a very long windy dirt road that was a little scary in an old big bus. I don!t think I would recommend this tour unless the description is changed to reflect what you actuallly see and do.
The description of the tour made it seem like we would walk around the city but in reality only wandered the malecon for a few minutes, saw a church and then off we went to a tequila tasting. Overall, most of the time was spent in the bus traveling to the tequila tasting or the lunch in a jungle and back to the hotels. This was not a tour of the city.
1st on a scale of 1-10 this tour is a minus 25, according to your email our tour operator was to be OLYMPUS Santiago Plascencia decide to sub out this tour to TROPICAL ADVENTURE. Our air conditioned coach 8 open window space at 40 MPH with SAGGING SEATS, BROKEN FRONT WINDSHIELD, an a SUPENSION FROM THE HORSE AND BUGGY age , other than making stops to pick up passenger in the city, we made a total of 4 stops 2 jewelry shops one on a bridge to hear about a house that 5 blocks away and one to see the seahorse statue with words PUERTO VALLARTA in color, before we headed to the tequila factory and lunch. The list of sitess and areas list in the brochure are BADLY MISS LEADING, NO NORTHSIDE, NO GUADALUPE CHURCH, NO MALECON, NO MARINA VALLARTA, NO BOTANICAL GARDENS. Major sale pitch at the Tequila shop not even close to a factory glad we bought lunch, we have 4 choices while the others had a wide variety to choice from. Plus we had to have our picture take as a requirement from the restaurant. Im think of submitting this to TRIP-ADVISOR also. Not only would I not recommend this tour I'm thinking about using another vendor for further booking. your description on the item is so miss leading as your vendor did not even come close to most of the item that we were to visit. Tropical Adventure is not much more than a rip off want to sell jewelry at their preferred stores instead of let you shop some were else. VERY DISSAPPOINTED WITH THEM, OLYMPLUS AND VIATOR.
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.
Nice to get to see the main sights, but is in an open bus and can get dusty, exhaust from trucks ahead as you drive up the windy mountain to the Eden site. The tequila man was great, informative and excited about teaching us the varieties of tequila flavors! This is NOT the tour that goes to the botanical gardens.
