Tour description

A relaxed afternoon of chatting, learning about local finger foods and tasting delicious authentic tacos. A (very) filling taco lunch with a local friend.

​You´ll learn the history of tacos and how tacos are prepared and eaten around Mexico. We will visit up to 5 different taco spots in the central and south neighborhoods. You'll be able to taste 5 to 10 different tacos and many salsas and toppings. It's the most popular breakfast or lunch tacos in the city, the ones we locals often eat. You may try refried beans, cheese, beef machaca, beef and pork birria, chicharron, carnitas, marlin and baja style fish tacos, and shrimp and octopus quesadillas. Plus, drinks and dessert. And lot's of fun. We'll visit street stands and small taco eateries, all of them family businesses. We will also visit a corn tortilla factory!

At every stop, you will learn the menus and prices. We will guide you through the selection process and recommend the most authentic and representative items. And then you take care of your check. The total expense per person for this very filling breakfast or lunch, including drinks and dessert, is the equivalent to between $10 and $15 USD at the very most. Bring your pesos and your apetite!

After our walking and eating session, you will feel more connected to the fabulous local taco scene and you will be more than ready to continue exploring on your own with more knowledge and confidence. I will also show you additional spots that you can visit later on and give you lots of extra info on how to make your vacation more enjoyable.

Enjoy Vallarta by the hand of a proud local.

We had a great time - Memo was a really informative and pleasant guide! We chose to try a taco at every stop. All the tacos were fantastic - especially the birria with consome. We will definitely be returning to some of the places. They were places we would have been shy to try if we didn't do the tour.

This was my second tour with Vallarta101 (Did the night tour before) and it was fantastic. Memo is a great guide, he's knowledgeable and personable. He really knows the local places. Not only was I completely full by the end of the tour I'd discovered a few places to return to. I would definitely recommend doing these tours at the beginning of your holiday.

What a fantastic tour! 5 stops and 5 tacos plus ice cream. Includes much needed short walks to burn off the tacos. Tacos were delicious and extremely inexpensive. Now in food coma. Highly Recommend!! On off season do tour at 9:30 AM to avoid the blazing sun.

Our tour with Memo was the best! It ended up just being me and my partner since others were a no show, so we essentially got a private taco tour. A taco tour is a must! We did the daytime one and left super full from some of the best tacos we ever had (we are from the Bay Area so our standards are high). We actually plan on going back to some of the places he took us because we need to try them again before we go. Highly recommend for foodies and sightseers alike. Thanks Memo!

Memo was so great! He took his time to explain everything to us. He took us to a variety of taco places that served delicious tacos for a very reasonable prices. He was very professional, knowledgeable and made a ton of recommendations for us to enjoy the city. Thank you Memo. I highly recommend this tour.
