    What’s not to love? Great food, great drinks and great company. The group was 10 people and we met people from Seattle and Canada. Such a great time! Luis Alba was our guide and he provided quite a bit of information about PV and tequila, he was the best. Don’t make dinner plans after this one, I guarantee you will be full after 8 stops. Take the tour you won’t regret it.

    This tour is well worth every penny!! We got to try several different types of tacos from places ranging from a street stand to an upscale restaurant. Learned a TON about tequila and other traditional Mexican drinks. Gio was our tour guide and he was so much fun and was a wealth of information (our group had lots of questions!!). Definitely a must when visiting PV!
