Unlike any other food tour available in Vallarta, The Best of El Centro Progressive Food tour has been strictly curated and features three courses at each of the four restaurants. Each course is either an off-menu item (dishes only offered for this tour) or signature dishes. The Chef's and/or owners often make time to come out and greet everybody on the tour and explain the history of their restaurant and the details and inspiration about the dishes being served that evening. The professional, bi-lingual tour guides provide in-depth stories about the history of El Centro, both at the restaurant and while strolling through the cobblestone side streets in a neighborhood, surrounded by homes and mansions that most tourists don't know exist. This tour is a fantastic way to experience multiple courses (12) at multiple restaurants (4) all in one night.
