We booked 2 different tours with discovery tours. One was the Puerto Vallarta City tour and the other was the Botanical Gardens Tour. We were promised that the Botanical Gardens Tour would not be a repeat of the city tour. For the city tour they stop at the boardwalk, you go into the church, they take you to Taxco Silver... More

I booked a shore excursion with VALLARTA Discovery over 6 months ahead of time. They insist on full payment ahead of time. After I made the payment I never heard from them. I emailed and I called and finally I received an email telling me I had only booked their service for one hour when actually I had a receipt... More

I prearranged and paid $35 for the VIP service to be picked up at the airport. The VIP service says they will have someone waiting with a sign with your name on it. I have no idea where she was waiting for us but we didn't see her. I asked about five people if they knew about this company and... More

My friends and I took the Los Arcos, Las Animas Booze Cruise on 17May 2016. It is advertised as a nine hour all day open bar booze cruise. Turns out that the bar is only open while the boat is moving and only after the snorkeling part of the cruise at Los Arcos. We were finally offered some beer or... More

I booked them to come pick up my daughter and I from the airport and paid for the VIP service just so I would for sure have my name on a card and be able to FIND them easily. As soon as I passed through the door, there they were with a BIG card with my name on it and... More

I booked a tour with this company and they charged my credit card. The tour was then cancelled and I got an email asking if I'd like to pick another tour or have a refund. I requested a refund. Despite emailing and trying to call numerous times (even having my hotel concierge try) I have not received a reply back... More

Ms. Gaerber made this booking at the very last minute on December 31st for a tour departing at 6:00 AM January first, the very next morning. By this time the tour was completely sold out so we called and emailed her offering to get her a similar tour or the same tour on a different date but she declined and... More

I was looking for a boat cruise that would be a fun vibe, included food/drink and saw some great sights. I found this cruise on Vallarta Discovery's website (I think the company that actually runs the cruise is Vallarta by Boat) and was immediately skeptical of the $35 price point compared to $90 by Vallarta Adventures. I believe you often... More

We choose the Las Marietad Eco discovery which includes hidden beach. The tour company was very reputable, great boat and great staff. It was well worth the money for a very full and fun day of activities. It is important to tell you that the hidden beach portion was beautiful and a once in a lifetime opportunity however it was...

I booked this on a recommendation from a friend and it was a mistake. I thought it would be a black car or SUV from the airport based on the price. It was a nice guy driving a stick-shift sedan through traffic that made my wife sick to her stomach. The driver was a nice person and friendly, but not... More
