Whether you’re visiting Puerto Vallarta for the first time, the 40th time, or live here part time, you’ve never experienced its food culture quite like this.
Chef’s Pass – Puerto Vallarta offers a memorable, one-of-a-kind culinary experience where participants enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes and unique stories of Vallarta.
Featuring lunch and dinner options, Chef’s Pass food tours visit four celebrated neighborhood restaurants in El Centro – each award-winning and family-owned and operated. From hidden gems to internationally recognized establishments, tour-goers say they’ve never experienced Mexican cuisine like this before.
“This isn’t your typical walking tour and you’ll be getting much more than a bite or two of food at each establishment,” said David Ostlund, Chef’s Pass – Puerto Vallarta’s president. “On a Chef’s Pass tour, you’ll get three sit-down courses and a welcoming drink at each restaurant. You meet the chefs and owners of each restaurant, learn about the cuisine, ask questions, get a peek into the history of the area and meet foodie friends from around the world.”
Each Chef’s Pass tour guide is experienced, insured, licensed and bonded and they lead visitors through the beautiful city to enjoy the views and taste the incredible flavors of Puerto Vallarta.
“Our restaurant partners are committed to providing the same level of service expected by their regular patrons and great care is given to each course,” Ostlund said. “Not only does Chef’s Pass provide an extraordinary culinary experience to our guests, we care greatly about our restaurant partners and tour guides as well.”
