Great tour, long day but the gardens are beautiful, red snapper lunch at the Agave tequila farm really good too as was the tequila tour. Jesus and Carlos our guide and driver made it a great day too, couldn't have picked a better tour. Thank you.

Our guide, Tommy was very an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and well informed about plants and the garden. Only one problem was the photographer did not email the photos we paid for

Thomas was a great tour guide and the driver was excellent - great for all ages. 6 tequila shots were awesome. the hike through the botanical garden was gorgeous but wear comfortable shoes and bring bug spray. lunch was worth it to get included instead of paying for it there.

Vallarta Botanical Garden and Tequila Tasting from Puerto Vallarta
The Botanical Garden was gorgeous, and the tequila tasting was fantastic. Our guide was more than informative and enjoyable, and our tequila distillery host was so much fun! The meal at the distillery was very good. You have your choice of several options; we had grilled red snapper, and it was excellent. All together a most enjoyable experience.

Very informative educational tour

Vallarta Botanical Garden and Tequila Tasting from Puerto Vallarta
It was very informative tour, we learned a lot about vegetation of Puerto Vallarta and tequila making. We had fun day. Tomas was very professional and experienced guide. Also very multi-tasked guy, he was a driver and a guide same time. A couple things I would suggest to improve the tour quality is a) pick up system. They picked us up from zona romantica then took us to close to Marina area, reorganized us to different vans by tour, and drove us back to Zona Romantica…it would be more efficient if the tour guide just pick us up from Zona Romantica. B) lunch timing. We were hiking and walking around Botanical garden all morning, we were tired, thirsty, hungry, thought we would have lunch before going to Tequila distillery, but Actually they took us tequila tasting before lunch. Having 8 shots of tequila before lunch was not good for my stomach at all… c) driving. As mentioned, the guide was a driver as well. While he was driving, he explained Puerto Vallarta geography by showing some maps. I was very scared and uncomfortable as I was very concerned if he was not paying attention to the road. Probably he was so used to driving and guiding same time.. but he should not show the maps while driving.

This was my second time on this tour and it was just as amazing as the first. Carlos provides nonstop amazing conversation and is extremely informative!! He's one of the sweetest people I've ever met. The gardens were absolutely gorgeous and there was plenty of time to see everything! I'll definitely be going again the next time I come down to PV.

The tour was well organized and our guide was wonderful. We enjoyed the time spent with our guide learning about the gardens as well as the free time to wander around on our own. The tequila tasting was fabulous and the pours were quite plentiful. Lunch was very tasty.

Vallarta Botanical Garden and Tequila Tasting from Puerto Vallarta
So many memorable experiences!! From the start, our tour guide was so funny but also educational. The garden was BEAUTIFUL and worth the drive over. We were a small group, so we also had the opportunity to have a lesson on the production of chocolate and also coffee, samples as well. Lunch was good, and included. Definitely recommend.
