We were a group of 10 adults visiting Puerto Vallarta on March 28, 2017, and scheduled for a private 5-hr “City And Tropical Tour” excursion with Bernardo Pena of “My Tours Vallarta.”

From the moment Bernardo met us at the ship, and throughout the entire tour in his comfortable air-conditioned van, Bernardo provided a running commentary of the culture, history, beauty and people of Puerto Vallarta . Bernardo is extremely friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, considerate, a safe driver, and speaks impeccable English.

After an informative drive through the Malecon, Bernardo wended his way through Old Town Puerto Vallarta so that we could peek and marvel at the variety of businesses whose owners, in many cases, lived directly above. At one point, Bernardo stopped … ran across the street … and returned with bags of hot-off-the-grill tortillas, chicharrón, and strips of fried pork … all to be eaten while he continued with our scenic drive, and while we also drank the chilled water, beer or Coke in his cooler. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS, and the SURPRISE detour … the highlight of a fabulous day!!!

Among other things, we had requested a tequila-tasting stop, and Bernardo recommended a visit to “Rancho Verano Distileria de Tequila” … which recommendation proved to be, again, another EXCELLENT choice.

Bernardo’s selection for our lunch stop … Chico’s Paradise Restaurant … which is located in a little mountain village close to the tequila factory … was a first-rate choice … with its superb food, service, and ambiance .

Throughout our tour, Bernardo insisted that we not rush and that we take as much time as we needed to thoroughly enjoy ourselves. Although we had already exceeded the time allotted for our tour, Bernardo, after overhearing our discussion about Mexican candy, recommended that we make an unscheduled stop in Old Town to do some souvenir shopping. He was, again, correct.

Thanks to Bernardo Pena and “My Tours Vallarta,” our stop in Puerto Vallarta was outstanding and, without a doubt , truly memorable .
