Eduardo was great. He shared his enthusiasm of nature and his knowledge of the botanical gardens. I learned way more with his tour than I would have on my own.

I had a great time on this tour. It was so much better with my guide Eduardo. He showed me things I definitely would have missed. He was so very knowledgeable. I got to taste a coffee berry and learn that vanilla grows from orchids!

Javi was an excellent tour guide/biologist. It’s very apparent he loves his job and is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. We felt he really went above and beyond. My sister and I has a great time, restaurant and gift shop staff were all excellent. Not to mention our driver was great, on time and safe. Highly recommend the experience.

The ride up the mountain to the gardens was a scenic tour before we even got to the garden. Our guide, Javi, was so knowledgable and pleasant; he was enthusiastic and willing to answer our questions. It was just a lovely day, including lunch.

Awesome trip to Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens

I enjoyed spending the day out at the Botanical Gardens with Marcos & Aron. I was one of the few new visitors after the recent re-opening (due to Covid) and everything was safe - everyone was wearing masks, sanitizers everywhere etc. The garden itself is gorgeous, loads of lovely flowers, birds, plants.. The food was fantastic.. recommended !

Orchids and birds

Trip taken from cruise ship, easy to organise through Viator, good information re pick up where Ruby was waiting for us. She worked for the garden and was an interesting and knowledgeable guide, passionate about her garden. The journey there from Puerto Vallarta was beautiful, into the Sierra Madre, and the garden itself was well organised and a haven of peace and quiet and birdsong. The trees and flowers, particularly the orchids were stunning. Lunch was 100% Mexican and delicious served on a balcony overlooking the mountains with hummingbirds visiting the feeders and lots of colourful birds on the bird table. We were dropped off back at our cruise ship after a great day-memorable?

Superb tour! Would consider doing it again.

We took the Adventure & Culinary tour with guide Edwardo and driver Tomas, very knowledgeable tour guide, excellent driver. Stopped at a couple locations along the way for a view. The 80 acre property was gorgeous and the plants were spectacular. We saw many birds, butterflies, koi, etc. learned what animals roam the property. Never knew there was a transparent wing butterfly or that climbing orchids produce organic vanilla. We learned a lot of interesting facts. Would highly recommend this trip. And we had a full course of traditional Mexican food which was delicious.

The tour to the Botannical Gardens was a must see if you like plants. We learned so much from our tour guide Ruby.The lunch that was included with the tour was made with some of the plants.It would be better if they picked you up and dropped you off at your hotel. RUBY WAS GREAT!
