Did you know that Puerto Vallarta sightseeing tours are not just limited to the popular regular tours. There are many off the beaten path tours for you to experience. You can enjoy the feeling of being safe with your tour guide while exploring outside the box. Depending on what your interests are should help you decide which tour is right for you.
Many biking shops offer sightseeing tours. These are not advertised with the bigger tour companies. These tours range in length and ability of the individual person or groups of people. From what I have heard, they really take care of you and change plans if they notice the ride is too difficult.
The experienced cyclist can enjoy riding way up into the Sierra Madre Mountains and explore the jungle. The intermediate rider may not want to go so far up the mountain. They may opt instead for a shorter ride and then a swim in the river at lower altitudes. The beginners will probably want to stay on somewhat level ground or take a slow gradual ride up to see some waterfalls.
A very good Puerto Vallarta sightseeing walking tour is offered by Diana's Tours. These tours are highly recommended by everybody who has taken them. This is an Old Town city tour but it is off the beaten track. See how the locals really live as you are guided down the back roads, up staircases, through trails and into Gringo Gulch. You will enjoy the breathtaking view of the city below as you reach the highest point of this tour. When the tour concludes, you will enjoy drinks in a local cafe. Make sure you put on some good walking shoes for this walking tour.
If that sounds like a bit too much for you, there is a free Art Walking Tour at the Malecon. Starting at The Galeria Pacifico in mid November until mid April every Tuesday starting at 9:30am. To top that off there is an Annual Art Walk Tour where you can meet the artists and enjoy complementary cocktail parties.
If you can handle Tequila (I pronounce it "To Kill You"), El Tapito Tequila Tasting Tour might be of interest. They will teach you about the Tequila making process and the history of this well known and popular spirit. You will also have the opportunity to sample various kinds of Tequila.
