Join your certified local guide for an in-depth, five-hour exclusive tour of Puerto Vallarta by air-conditioned vehicle.
Puerto Vallarta is a curious mix of ancient culture and modern life. Your knowledgeable guide will take you on a journey from the local marina, where luxurious yachts anchor. No visit is complete without a tour of downtown Puerto Vallarta, where you will visit one of the most famous icons of the city, The Church of the Virgin of Guadalupe, located right in the middle of cobblestone streets and old adobe houses with their red tile roofs.
In downtown Puerto Vallarta, explore the main plaza, the Mercado, and Malecon, where you will have an opportunity to take photos of the amazing sculptures, street artists, and a beautiful view of the ocean and the bay of Puerto Vallarta. Take a look at the craftsmanship of local artisans, from glass sculptures to talavera. You will discover all of what Mexican artisans have to offer, and why they are considered among the best artisans worldwide.
Mexico is famous for its silver, and you will have a chance to see and learn about it at your next stop. You will visit a silver store that has its own workshop, where you will learn about the silver artistic works, and opals that are found only in Africa and Mexico. Time for shopping is included.
Arrive at Nogalito Eco Park, nestled in the Sierra Madre tropical forest. In this beautiful natural environment, a tequila expert will take you on a journey to discover the artisanal process of making tequila. You will have the opportunity to taste the best and exclusive Tequila blanco, reposado, and anejo. Additionally you can try some of the exotic tequila liquor flavors, including coffee, vanilla, pomegranate, and guava, and purchase some if you wish.
You will then have free time to take pictures and to enjoy a delicious Mexican lunch prepared by regional top chefs. Feel the connection to nature at this spectacular tropical forest, relax on a hammock, walk around the river, take a dive in a natural pool, or just relax and watch the birds and local fauna while sipping a cold, refreshing drink. Remember to say hello to Tequila, the beautiful resident macaw at Nogalito, and she will answer back!
Your tour ends with a ride back into town.
Tour of city very interesting and trip into mountains was fun with plenty of Tequila and excellent lunch.
Pick up location outside port next to a gas station, 7 minutes from where the ship docked. Visited the cathedral, Malecon and sampling Nogalito Tequilla distillery drinks. Lunch was the last stop after the Tequilla tasting, same site. Some emphasis on shopping at the jewellery store.

With only six of us on the tour we got personal attention and were able to get some items that would not normally be on the tour. The tequila tasting locale and presentation was the best of all that we attended.

The tour was good! Really enjoyed the Tequila tasting!
Overall the tour was good, perhaps because I like shopping. We didn't get to see glass made but did visit a store that made glass. We toured an overpriced jewelry store and walked around the town. We also went to the mountains where we sampled tequila (bring bug spray). Lunch was the last stop so unfortunately we didn't eat until the late afternoon, after the tequila tasting. Our tour guide was good and the bus was comfortable enough.
