Good Food, Great Intro to the City

Food tours can be a great intro to a city, and this did not disappoint. Guide Misha gave us a great, informative experience into the Old Town and Gold Coast neighborhoods. Thanks, we were very pleased. Well worth it!

About 2 hours. We stayed and walked around Old Town afterward. There is a great homemade ice cream place down there. I think it is called Jenny’s. You will have a great time!
