Our foodie guide, Tish, was amazing! Perfect for people who want to taste good amounts of different types of food. Alcohol was available for purchase, but it wasn’t the main attraction which I enjoyed. Perfect for those who do drink with a big appetite.

Rich was a great tour guide! We had a group of 40 girls and arrived late. Rich and our other guide quickly got us back on schedule. The tour wasn't to much walking and just the right amount of stops. I enjoyed that most of the stops had small private rooms for our groups.
