Prices where a little high, but you have the security of the tour group. We got a city tour with it, the bus stopped over a stream and they pointed out a wild iguana in the trees. We were taken along the beach board walk as well. A very pleasant day.

Good guide, air conditioned bus, good ride to PV from port. PV a pretty city which the bus drove us through with time to get out and walk around. Then to a jewelry store and a leather shop with quality pieces. Next drove to a tile factory where we saw tiles being painted but not making of the tiles. Then a countryside drive to the tequila factory where we learned a lot about how to make tequila and buy it. Lunch was served outside on an attractive patio with traditional dancers.

Waiting on the same people all the time who held up the trip by not being back at the bus on time for whatever reason. Walking in the town square was nice. The shopping aspect of this tour was a joke. One shop. Victor had a lot of pride in his town and presented the history well. The tequila farm was interesting and the samples were delicious. Bought a bottle to bring home. The snack they served was good. I liked the pork the best. Didn't like the gauntlet of booths with people being so pushy, but I guess that's par for the course. The cobblestone streets and high curbs in some places were a problem for some of the people who had mobility issues. The tile store was nice as well and they wrapped my purchase very well in bubble wrap. The sales people were very pleasant. The church was lovely and well worth seeing.

My mother and my husband's grandmother took this tour and were very disappointed. The tour was a gift to them and they had no idea what it cost so their disappointment was only the tour itself. Apparently the tequila factory isn't a tequila factory at all but a dilapidated, dirty building with a tiny hot room where 50 some people are expected to crowd in and sample tequilas for sale. As for the tile store, my mother said it was no more exciting or unique than a downtown Los Angeles flea market. This is definitely not what I wanted our ladies to experience. The stop at a restaurant for a lunch turned out to be a single "street taco" at a stall. Shame on you Princess for such a deceptive description!

The Tequila factory wants you to drink so you buy more, meaning you get a lot of really great Tequila

Mainly small places set up to "look" like a factory. But good tour guide and well organized. Tequila tasting looked like it was being enjoyed by those that were tasting!
