Super tour by Cervando. Outstanding knowledge of Puerto Vallarta. Went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. Even bought us lunch (there were six of us) at his favorite taco vendor. Couldn't ask for a better tour guide/driver.

Cervando was excellent. He was knowledgeable about Puerto Vallarta as he has lived there his whole life. He took us to unique out of the way places and our tour was excellent. I would highly recommend Cervando if you visit Puerto Vallarta. Thank you for a wonderful time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to San Sebastián with Cervando. He shared his passion for the Sierra Madres and the small magical Pueblo's. We truly enjoyed the San Sebastián tour, the views, and the small restaurant we stopped at. A highlight of the tour was our stop at the raicilla distillery. I'd highly recommend this tour to everyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larry, thank you so much for your great comments and your kind wishes. I'd love to see you all again for another trip in the beautiful Sierra Madre. Wishing you all the best for this 2020!

Two weeks after we took our tour to San Sebastián del Oeste and the top of La Buffa, our family keeps talking about details of it every day. This tour was a highlight of our visit to Puerto Vallarta, thanks to our wonderful guide Cervando! I would highly recommend him to anyone. Hope to see you again when we are back to PV!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Olga, I highly appreciate your comments on your tour. It was my pleasure to spend the day with you and your family, in the mountains of San Sebastian. I'd love to see you again for another adventure!

Our tour with Cervando was fantastic. He provided excellent commentary regarding Puerto Vallarta history and current culture and economics. He scheduled the tour to give us the best opportunity to walk along the Malecon and visit the cathedral before it became crowded. Then he took us South along the coast to a lovely restaurant overlooking an amazing river full of huge boulders, then back to town with a tour of the tiny streets of Gringo Gulch. All in our group were very happy with the tour.

Cervando was a fantastic tour guide and this tour was everything we wanted. We were three women in our 60s with our 85 year old mother. He has excellent English & a broad knowledge of history and economics. Two of us in our group of 4 were bilingual & spoke Spanish but the other two didnt. He responded in English when questioned in Spanish so that we all understood. My mother's mobility was limited & he stayed with her while the others of us went shopping & explorinng. Thank you Cervando!

Our party of 8 (including 2 super seniors 87 and 88 years old) had a wonderful and adventurous day of touring with Cervando! Cervando took care to make sure everyone was comfortable throughout the tour, and his suggestions for sightseeing and lunch were a great match for our interests. Cervando's love for his city, knowledge, and genuine hospitality really shined through. We arrived as tourists and left as amigos. Enjoy!

Cervando was great. He was on time, had a nice air conditioned van. He gave us suggestions on where to stop and what to do. We had 3 teens and he kept us at a nice pace. On our beautiful drive, he even stopped to save a turtle that was crossing the busy road. My kids were even able to hold the turtle. I will rebook Cervando and do another tour with him when we come back to Puerto Vallarta.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Stacey, it was my pleasure to spend the day with you and your family. I'll look forward to seeing you guys agin for another adventure. Please tell your husband thanks from me, for his generosity.

Cervando was an absolutely wonderful guide!! He is kind, polite and extremely knowledgeable about Puerto Vallarta. Five of us spent the day touring around to the sites we were most interested in. We felt safe and well cared for. His van was comfortable and well air-conditioned. When we return to PV, we will not hesitate to book his time again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sherri, thanks a lot for rating your tour with 5 stars! I would love to see you guys again to share more of Mexico with you.

We highly recommend tours offered by Cervando. Our tour of the Botanical Gardens featured hiking, bird watching, fruit tasting, and environmental education.

Cervando professionally guided us in these activities including mini stops to view the incredible scenery and islands like Los Arcos. Book now!!!!

We highly recommend tours offered by Cervando. This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed Cervando's Private City Tour of Puerto Vallarta. He generously shared his knowledge of the city, its top attractions, and many behind-the-scene jewels! His tour offered local stops, tastings and so much more. Together, we experienced and savored beaches, neighborhoods, art, and flora. He brought to life the beauty, magic, and history of Mexico. Book now!!!

A full 14 1/2 hour day with lots of driving, beautiful scenery with quaint, historical stops along the way. Our guide, Cervando, could not have been more professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Plus, and this is a real plus in the jungle, he was a careful, and safe driver. Would wholeheartedly recommend booking with Cervando; we certainly will again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Lee! I hope you are enjoying your cruise. Lee, thank you so much for your great review on your tour. I hope to have you again on another adventure. Please say hello to Lisa.

Great tour and fantastic tour guide. Cervando was informative, and friendly. He was able to answer all of our questions about the area. We really enjoyed our visit to San Sebastian del Oeste. It really is a magical place. Full of history, very friendly people, and lots to explore. This was a full day tour (we were tired when we got back to our resort), with a good bit of walking. I highly recommend this tour and Cervando for your guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonnie, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to San Sebastian. This is one of my favorite villages around PV, I didn't go back with my family last Saturday, but I'm going back to San Sebastian this weekend. Thanks for your review and hope to see you, Logan and your husband Robert again. Cervando

Excellent guide. Hired Cervando for a second day in a row. Took us where we wanted to go and of course showed us much more than we expected. Excellent guide - cannot go wrong with him as your guide. Knows Puerto Vallarta and Nayarit like the back of his hand.

Cervando did any excellent job. Very knowledgeable, very patient. Spoke clearly so all could hear him and his English was excellent. Took us to all of the major sites in Puerto Vallarta and exceeded our time allotment so we could take it all in at a pace we enjoyed. All eight in our party rated him excellent.

Cervando is awesome. He was waiting for us where he said he'd be. Since my family was not familiar with Puerto Vallarta, he provided a plan but was very flexible with our wants and needs. He is very knowledgeable about the history in PV and I enjoyed talking with him about it. He had cold refreshments for us and really wow'd us when our daughter became a little car sick. We asked him where we could find some ginger ale and he had that too! It was obvious he has been doing this for a while and does it well

His local knowledge, enthusiasm and authentic care for us made Cervando a truly great guide. His English skills are fluent and conversation was easy. Cervando's love of his community is obvious. It might seem trivial but have him take you to lunch. The food was perfect and the ambience delightful and peaceful. We give Cervando our highest recommendation.

Our family of 7 had an incredible time touring San Sebastian and the gorgeous vistas and villages along the mountain route! Cervando's passion for his country, the land and the people was the best part of the tour. We learned about the area's history, the flora and fauna of the mountains and met many of his local friends along the way. We stopped at a small-batch Tequila producer, a local restaurant for delicious hand-made tortillas and seasonal food. Thank you Cervando for an unforgettable experience!
