Signature Taco Tour

Start your day off Vallarta style. Tacos for breakfast? You bet, plus a lot of other surprising facts about the beloved taco.

Are you looking for an authentic taco tour experience? Our flagship tour started in 2011, Signature Taco Tour, is for you! Let our foodie guides take you on a taco adventure as you stroll the historic streets of Puerto Vallarta.

Our Signature Taco Tour is offered every day and is limited to 8-10 guests to keep our curated tours intimate and engaging.

You can plan on 5 savory food stops tasting 5 to 7 tacos/foods on your tour along with stops at an outdoor market, tortilla factory, ice cream shop, and candy store. Tour routes change depending on partner operating days, but here is a sample of some of the foods and tacos you may find on your tour: birria, chilaquiles divorciados, carnitas, machaca, fish taco, tinga de pollo, adobada, tortillas hot off the press, fruit popsicles, and a traditional Mexican candy sampling.

A helpful hint: Past guests tell us the best time to take our tours is the beginning of your stay in Puerto Vallarta — you’ll be able to return to your newly found favorites throughout the rest of your visit and look like a seasoned pro doing it.

Daily at 10 am, 10:30 am (11:30 am on Tuesdays for cruise ship passengers)

Please check the FAQs for additional info regarding food allergies or other dietary modifications before booking this tour.
