Vallarta Eats Food Tours was started by expat Eric Wichner to offer visitors to Puerto Vallarta the opportunity to eat like a local. Over the years, he and his team of expert foodies Memo, Ana Luisa, and Martha have led tour participants through the cobblestone streets of Puerto Vallarta to share their knowledge of this beautiful city to include it’s incredible food, culture and rich history. Restaurants visited on the tour stops are within the Romantic Zone and Colonia (neighborhood) Emiliano Zapata, which are situated in the heart of Puerto Vallarta. Current tours offered are: “Signature Taco and More” which is a 3-4 hour walking tour (about 1.5 miles) that stops at 10-12 locations (cost is $55 USD), and “Mole, Pozole and More” that lasts 3-4 hours and visits 4-6 locales on the 1-mile tour route (cost is $65 USD). A new tour “Totally Taco” will soon be added to the lineup; this new tour is sure to appeal to serious taco lovers. The combined tastings on each tour route are the equivalent to one large meal. Tours are limited to 6 persons, with larger groups accommodated upon request. Gratuities for the tour guides are not included in the tour ticket prices.
