Cervando did a wonderful job with our group of six people ages 16-80. He picked us up exactly as planned. We didn't have anything in particular that we wanted to see so we allowed him to create the itinerary. We appreciated seeing the boardwalk with all of the sculptures, the city, and getting out of the city to a wonderful restaurant followed by tequila tasting. He stopped at a store for our special ceramic iguana request and patiently shared Spanish lessons with our son. A really great day!

This tour of Puerto Vallarta was excellent for a number of reasons. Cervando took us to each of the places we wanted to visit and experience. Highlights included the visit to Our lady of Guadalupe with it's rich history and beautiful architecture in the town centre. Also, tequila tasting at Noble Corazon was a relaxing end to our day! Throughout the day Cervando's consideration for our needs, his knowledge and experience added up to a fun and informative day. Ultimately Cervando was one of the highlights.

We had an absolutely wonderful day with Cervando! Don't look any further and just book your tour, trust me. Cervando is incredibly knowledgeable, passionate and personable. We had an incredible day of tequila, raicilla and food. Cervando took us places we would not have found on our own and we were able to really enjoy some local flavors. Even visitors that have been to Puerto Vallarta six+ times (like ourselves) can enjoy new adventures with Cervando! We can't wait to book a tour again next year.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Meghan, thank you so much for your great review! I'm happy you enjoyed our local flavors, I'll look forward to seeing you again for another adventure. Please say hello to your husband and your father. PS Thank you for the bottle of Raicilla!

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.

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.

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 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.

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!!!

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

We felt like we were part of Cervando's family! We saw so much of the city and had lunch at a fantastic local restaurant, Balam Balam. The meal was cooked and served by the owner and his team. It was an experience we will never forget.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dale thank you very much for your rave review and your generosity! I hope to see you again for another adventure here in Puerto Vallarta. Please say hello to your wife Alison and friends George and Linda.
