Private Tour: San Sebastian del Oeste Day Trip

    What to Expect
    Your day trip begins with pickup from your Puerta Vallarta in the morning. Following a scenic drive, during which your guide presents an overview of San Sebastian del Oeste, you’ll arrive in the 17th-century mountain town.

    An elevation of 4,800 feet (1,463 meters) means spectacular views can be enjoyed from the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Delve into the town’s history at the Museum of Doña Conchita and soak up the laid-back ambiance during a stroll around the main plaza and historic center. Explore a local coffee plantation, discover the entire production process, and sample locally grown coffee before lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). 

    See, too, the historic Hacienda Jalisco, formerly frequented by Hollywood stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Following a tour of the hacienda and its museum, you’ll conclude the tour with hotel drop-off.

    Response from AstridVallarta, Owner at Private Tour: San Sebastian del Oeste Day Trip
    Responded 11 Apr 2019
    Than you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review about this tour and Rigoberto. San Sebastian is a wonderful charming town, we are glad you could witness a historical area of Mexico. The ride to San Sebastian is very beautiful, but indeed the town with all cobblestones can be rough to walk. That is why a private tour is by far the best option; we can customize it exactly to your needs. It will be our pleasure to have you with us again in the future, and show you some other areas close to Vallarta that are at least as interesting as San Sebastian and worth a visit too. Once again thank you for joining us!
