  • The description of the tour made it seem like we would walk around the city but in reality only wandered the malecon for a few minutes, saw a church and then off we went to a tequila tasting. Overall, most of the time was spent in the bus traveling to the tequila tasting or the lunch in a jungle and back to the hotels. This was not a tour of the city.

  • 1st on a scale of 1-10 this tour is a minus 25, according to your email our tour operator was to be OLYMPUS Santiago Plascencia decide to sub out this tour to TROPICAL ADVENTURE. Our air conditioned coach 8 open window space at 40 MPH with SAGGING SEATS, BROKEN FRONT WINDSHIELD, an a SUPENSION FROM THE HORSE AND BUGGY age , other than making stops to pick up passenger in the city, we made a total of 4 stops 2 jewelry shops one on a bridge to hear about a house that 5 blocks away and one to see the seahorse statue with words PUERTO VALLARTA in color, before we headed to the tequila factory and lunch. The list of sitess and areas list in the brochure are BADLY MISS LEADING, NO NORTHSIDE, NO GUADALUPE CHURCH, NO MALECON, NO MARINA VALLARTA, NO BOTANICAL GARDENS. Major sale pitch at the Tequila shop not even close to a factory glad we bought lunch, we have 4 choices while the others had a wide variety to choice from. Plus we had to have our picture take as a requirement from the restaurant. Im think of submitting this to TRIP-ADVISOR also. Not only would I not recommend this tour I'm thinking about using another vendor for further booking. your description on the item is so miss leading as your vendor did not even come close to most of the item that we were to visit. Tropical Adventure is not much more than a rip off want to sell jewelry at their preferred stores instead of let you shop some were else. VERY DISSAPPOINTED WITH THEM, OLYMPLUS AND VIATOR.

  • Was not impressed with the tour. The interior of the bus was in poor physical condition and it was hot. The tour was a series of stops to purchase something. The jewelry showroom the sales people were pushy, the tequila tasting place was not up to par. The lenght of time spent at the lunch stop, El Eden, was much too long. The guide did most of her commentary in Spanish not a good mixture of English and Spanish. I would not recommend this tour.

  • We purchased the tour from Viator, who used Olympus Tours, who used Tropical Adventures. The buses were quite old and there were mechanical problems, which required us to change buses twice. Jamie was our guide and he did a good job in both Spanish and English.

    The tour was advertised as a City Tour but it was really just a shopping tour. We had a quick stop at the seahorse statue and a tour of the church and then we went to an overpriced jewellery store. The next stop was at a tequila store where they explained how Tequila is made. However, the price of their products was much higher than the Tequila at Walmart and the airport. The next stop was up in the mountains at the restaurant located at the zip line. It was a beautiful location, but not necessary unless you wanted to go on the zip line.
    The restaurant was good but also somewhat overpriced. The stop there was over 2 hours and the road was extremely slow and rougher than any logging road in Canada.
    Overall, we were disappointed with the tour. If people just want to see the city highlights taking a taxi to the naval museum would be better. From there they could see the museum, the statue, the church, walk the Malecon and go to a restaurant and see more for less money.

  • The Tour driver was very friendly, knowledgeable and on time. Enjoyed the sites and the lunch stop was wonderful.

  • Love this tour and would recommend to others.

  • This tour was really good. We enjoyed the town, the tour of the church was great. Then topped it off with a incredible lunch. I wish we had know all about the stuff to do at the lunch site. At first I thought it was kind of small but until you get into it you don't realize all that is involved.

  • Very informative, we learned a lot about Puerto Vallarta local cultures.

  • Nice to get to see the main sights, but is in an open bus and can get dusty, exhaust from trucks ahead as you drive up the windy mountain to the Eden site. The tequila man was great, informative and excited about teaching us the varieties of tequila flavors! This is NOT the tour that goes to the botanical gardens.

  • The tour was a neat way to see PV. The best part was stopping at the Tequilla plant. towards the end of the tour we stopped for lunch and thought it was supposed to be like some kind of rain forest but It was pretty much a restaurant and ziplining. We stayed there for 2 hours with nothing to do.
