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!
Cervando gets a 5 out of 5! He took us to awesome out of the way places! He was friendly and a great guide! He knows a lot about local history. I would love to have him as a guide again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Susan, thank you so much for rating both of your tours with 5 stars! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. I would love to show you more of my country next time.

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.

This was our fourth time with Cervando. As always, he is prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. When traveling to Puerto Vallarta, he is our first choice for an excellent tour. Thank you again. My family and I had a wonderful time in Sayulita and San Pancho.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, you're my best customer Davalynn! I greatly appreciate your preference. Next time you come to Puerto Vallarta, I'll buy you lunch. Thank you!

Cervando is a knowledgeable, patient and wonderful guide. We had a wonderful day visiting San Pancho and Sayulita at a relaxed pace and Cervando even helped me find some lovely shells to add to my collection! Thank you, Cervando, for a memorable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kathy, thank you so much for your comments! Kind regards!

Cervando has historical knowledge of the place. It was fun to listen to him share his interesting family history. He treated us to coconut tasting. He is patient, pleasant, and courteous . He sang for us too, even though he is a bit shy. The driver Miguel is a good driver. I highly recommend Cervando to anyone. Thank you Cervando for a fun and memorable experience of Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita and San Pancho.
Cervando was such a nice host. He was polite, patient, and very professional. It is the small details in the things he did that really impressed me. He prepared a variety of beverages for us on the road, he slowed down at every speed bump on the road so the people in the back of the van would not feel uncomfortable, and he tailored the tour to the preferences of our group. Cervando is very knowledgeable about Mexican history, geography, politics, and culture. This was certainly the best way to travel!
This was our third tour with Cervando - one each year we have visited - and as always we have been very happy with our day! Cervando's knowledge, professional and friendly manner, coupled with a genuine love of sharing with us a true Mexican experience, draws us back again and again. Our tour of the Nayarit area north of Puerto Vallarta saw us visit villages and beaches, a local fruit stand, and plenty of great opportunities to take it all in unhurried! Fantastic day!
Cervando was a thoughtful and informative host who readily adapted the tour to our needs. We are a mother and daughter aged 60 and 86. We would not hesitate to book with him in the future.
We give Cervando 5 out of 5 stars, as he was a great guide and driver. He was nice and funny and knowledgeable about the area and the history. He found us great stores and restaurants that were a bit off the beaten path, so we got to meet locals in each town we visited. Cervando is also a big music fan like we are, so we listened to each other's favorite music on the trip, which was lots of fun. Cheers!
Great tour to Sayulita, San Pancho, Punta Mita. Cervando was a great guide that took very good care of us on a very informative and fun trip!
Very good private tour. We are a family of five and Cervando was able to meet all of our wants with regard to the tour...sights, current events, history, shopping and of course surfing. Cervando made our first adventure to Sayulita and surrounding areas safe and memorable...exactly what we were looking for while traveling with our children.
Cervando was an excellent guide and driver, very personable and friendly. We had heard a lot about the Bucerias area of the Riveria Nayarit and were keen to visit, particularly Sayulita. On our way there. we stopped for some tastings of coconut and Jackfruit and had a very interesting visit to San Francisco where we toured the community centre and had a delicious lunch. The four of us found the day to be most enjoyable and would not hesitate to recommend both Tours by Locals and Cervando.
Cervando is an excellent knowledgeable guide and made our excursion a success. We learned so much about each of the areas and local culture. From a quick stop in Buscerias, to a stop on the beach for a drink near Punta Mita, lunch in Sayulita and stops in San Francisco and another stop I can't pronounce but where beautiful furniture is made from the trees. We highly recommend this tour and of course Cervando.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lucie thank you very much for your comments. This was our second tour together and I truly enjoyed the day with all of you. Please say hello to Kerry, Karen,Mike,Marian, Gary and Louise. It's always good to see you all!

We had a great time and Cervando was awesome. His vehicle was clean and comfortable and he went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wanted to see. I would definitely tour with him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jim, thank you very much for your kind comments. I would love to be your guide again!

Cervando is an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and has an easy and clear speaking ability which really helped us gain an insight into the area in a relatively short time. His van is comfortable and he is a cautious and courteous driver. He does not speed and he makes every attempt to ensure one sees as much as possible according to his guests schedule and preferences. An excellent day for us enabled by a truly competent guide.
Syd RobenseifnerUnited States
Cervando was a fabulous guide; his knowledge of the area was excellent; he was friendly and accomodating, is an amazing driver and was very flexible. There were 6 of us and each of us agreed that this was the best tour we've ever had (and we've had many tours with Tours by Locals and other independent groups). We will definitely plan to book another tour with him next year when we return.
