Vallarta Eats Food Tours: Eat Your Way Through the City

By Natalia Osuna

August 11, 2022

“Come hungry!” is what tour guides tell clients as they make their reservations. Whether it’s the Signature Taco Tour, Versailles After Dark, or Untouristed, the Vallarta Eats Food Tours are a foodie’s dream.

Eric Wichner, the company’s founder, says that he aims to “share his experience with food, culture, and rich history of this wonderful slice of paradise and its many unheralded treasures.” Originally from Philadelphia, USA, Wichner first came to Puerto Vallarta looking for a nice vacation. Yet, he quickly fell in love with the city’s incredible food and warm people. Thus, ten years later, he feels more like a pata salada or Vallarta native than anything else.

After Vallarta Eats’ first daytime tour, Wichner recalls that a guest came up to him in tears. He said, “I have been coming to PV for twenty years and have always been afraid to try these places.” He continued, “You have changed my relationship with Puerto Vallarta forever.” This is the experience that Vallarta Eats Food Tours strives to give. By creating several diverse tours, they have the perfect one for each type of client. They say, “Our tours are for everyone, whether it’s your first visit or your 50th.”
