Memo gave lots of helpful recommendations of different sites to see and food to try - both the more extravagant, touristy spots and the quaint, local ones. My boyfriend and I got a private tour for 3 hours on our first day, and Memo gave us some great pointers about how to make the most of our time at our own pace. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta, especially early on in the vacation.

What a valuable way to start a visit to PV! We took the welcome walk and it was a great orientation to the city. Memo was a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. I hope to have time for another of his tours :)

Memo was fantastic! We learned so much about the culture and history, as well as where to eat and visit after our tour. Highly recommend!

During your first day or two in Puerto Vallarta, you need to take this tour with Memo. He will give you the guidance and framework to easily navigate the streets, especially if you want to venture away from just the touristy Malecon. With his advice, several days later, I was walking with confidence into local shops and restaurants. Memo has so much insight and passion about the neighborhoods, food scene, and arts culture - you will leave with a better understanding and appreciation of Puerto Vallarta.
