The tour was very informative and Memo was a great guide! We basically received a private tour and he was very open to showing us whatever we were interested in.

Memo's tour made us want to return to Puerto Vallarta! He really gave us a great overview of the city's heritage and pointed out events that were happening that week. He also took us to some of the best taco spots that we definitely would not have found on our own.

I’ve found the walk to be really informative and Memo made it interesting. The breakfast tacos were delicious and the candy store stop was the perfect ending.

I will definitely recommend this tour to anyone coming to Puerto Vallarta!
