Why People Love Puerto Vallarta Eats Food Tours!

 

Eric, we are the ones that should say thank you...
“ We felt so appreciative that Memo agreed to conduct our tour.  We love your company, and we love Memo.  He truly is amazing, and so very accommodating.  We will continue to tell everyone we know they should book a tour with Vallarta Eats.  Thank you for the pictures, and for providing another memorable day. Gracias,”
We so enjoyed the Mole Pozole tour...
“The food was outstanding and Memo added to our enjoyment with his knowledge of the area and his wonderful personality.  The best part for me was eating at the street taco stand. I’ve always wanted to do that but was afraid to. I will let all my friends who go to Puerto Vallarta know about your tours and I also gave you a 5 star review on Trip Advisor.
Hasta la vista!”

We had an amazing time...
“ Rain wasn’t and didn’t spoil our experience. We were really looking forward to some authentic food. The food at the resort is not great. Pizza, hamburgers waffles etc which is a shame. So the tours are fantastic. Memo is quite special. Even if he has done the tour over a number of years, he was enthusiastic, warm and we learnt a lot. Didn’t get to meet you but congratulations for such a professional tour. Looking forward to the next tour. No one is eating tomorrow until the tour. We hope Memo can take us again. Thank Memo for the great photos.”
Maria
