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!

My friends and I have had Cervando as a guide for several years. We have always enjoyed the entire tour as well as the best guide ever. He understands exactly what we are looking for and adds nothing but fun to the day. If we can't have Cervando, we don't go. We certainly do recommend him.

Cervando was charming, knowledgeable, engaging and fun. He gave us space to explore and was responsive to our needs. There was no pressure to buy at any of the stops (coffee plantation, tequila distillery, small shops) which was appreciated and very different from large bus tours we have previously taken. He is a very safe driver and planned a great day full of history, natural beauty and local colour. He introduced us to local residents including children and local police. We highly recommend Cervando.

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.

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. Before exploring this pristine reserve, Cervando treated us to lunch at the Gardens (highly recommend). 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.

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.
