Tequila is uniquely Mexican. Tour a factory and sample the goods while learning about old-fashioned production methods.
Great tour guide took us all over, giving a wealth of information.

Too much tequila! This was a tour with Viva Tequila. We started with a bus trip to The Malecon and a very short walking tour that wasn't really all that interesting. It seemed our guide was maybe a little new to the area and didn't have all that much interesting information to share yet. After this, we went to the Viva Tequila center where we were immediately offered a cold tequila beverage (delicious) and then learned a bit about how tequila is made from the blue agave plant. Following this was another bit of tasting, and then another where we sampled different flavoured tequilas (this was by an independent company and there was time to make purchases; also got a souvenir clay shot glass). Then we were given yet another large beverage to take into the surprisingly spacious theatre where we learned, in detail, how to taste tequila with skill, using four types of tequila. Following this was the music and dancing folkloric show. Make sure to use the restroom at least once before going into the theatre! After this was a short stroll down to the restaurant (Mangos) at the beachfront where a delicious lunch was served (drinks not included). The dancers made an appearance here too. There are photographers on arrival at Viva Tequila and they, of course, want you to buy their photos. Read Less

Tile "factory" is a store with a second floor work area with a few people hand painting tiles. Still, interesting to see, and plenty of beautiful tiles to choose from in the store. Great prices. Tequila tasting was great, and I'm no tequila drinker normally. Even get a couple of hand made tacos - but if the sign says the sauce is "very hot" - believe them! Read Less

First we stopped at a glass blowing place. You had to be very careful not to bump into anything. Then we drove pretty far to a tequila manufacturing place. They were very generous with the tequila samples and they explained the process. This was fun. But this was not supposed to be a lunch tour. They insisted on stopping at a restaurant where there was no other place to eat lunch. You had a choice between sitting on a hot bus alone for l hour and going into a restaurant and having lunch. Fortunately, I had my credit card with me because the lunch was $36,00 plus foreign transaction fees. If we had not stopped for lunch, we would have been back to the ship in time for a late lunch. The final stop was a flea market area where T shirts and other items were sold. I think the tour guide broke the itinerary and forced us to stop for lunch at that restaurant because she had some type of kick back arrangement with the restaurant. We did not get to vote on whether we wanted lunch or not. Read Less

We repeated the Viva Tequila excursion since we enjoyed it so much the last time we did it in March 2017. It has changed with the open air, multi-car "trolley" thru the city tour was replaced with a bus because the city decided it was too disruptive to local traffic. The Tequila Museum is a newer building converted by the Mexican Tequila producers and is in a refurbed large stage theater. We were given "unlimited" margaritas made the traditional Mexican way not the American way and they were much better. The museum staff gave a tour and presentation on the myths and origin of tequila and how it is made which was very informative. In the theater there was an enlightening discussion of how to drink and distinguish between the major varieties of tequila based on its processing and aging. We then had a sample of each of the tequila varieties, Blanca/Silver, Reposado and Anejo to taste. One of the best folkloric shows that we've ever seen was then presented. This was then followed by a short walk to the beach for a complementary lunch at the Mangos beach side restaurant. Highly recommend this excursion when in Puerto Vallarta. Read Less

Having 3 shopping opportunities is ridiculously overdone. Tour of the basic city was not enough to want to return. Tequila tour and sampling was fine. A tour starting at 11:30AM and ending around 3PM with tequila sampling at the end should have a planned food stop. Fortunately, the tour guide arranged for a chance for tacos before the tequila tour so we weren't sampling 6 tequilas on an empty stomach.. Read Less
