Our private tour of Puerto Vallarta with Raphael was excellent. He met us on time, reviewed the plan for the day, then we set off for a morning of treats, coffee, and insider tips of what to look for when eating locally. What was initially a 5 hour tour stretched to 7 hours because of our pace and many questions- which was no problem for him. He provided good food and drinks and even extra touches like cold towels to cool off with on the jungle hike. I would recommend this tour and Raphael.

Chef Rafael was a charming host. Chef advised or selected foods directed to our palates and explained the history and relationships with these choices. We enjoy sharing food as a connection. He chose dining spots in locales with a view that held a familiar or cultural significance to the meal. For example, simply eating ceviche on the beach. As he explained regional differences of ceviche and how many families prepared it while on a picnic, a family arrived and did just so. Great experience.

"Great local food in beautiful settings"- as advertised and more! . Rafael is well versed on PV, Mexico. We started tasting/comparing French and Mexican pastries in old town PV while discussing history of area, country and food.. We had "morning" birria tacos from local stand & enjoyed them at beautiful Mismaloya . We took a bus to Boca de Tomatlan and got ceviche tostadas from local vendor which we ate after hike to secluded Colomitos. Water taxi to PV and chocolate to end a fantastic day!

My friend turned 50 while visiting Puerto Vallarta. As our gift to her, we choose a tour with a chef. Rafael was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide with a love of Puerto Vallarta and food. This tour was more than worth the cost and the time. Please see my full review on Trip Advisor.
