Lindsay, our guide, gave us a wonderful introduction to the treasures on the “Gold Coast” with fabulous tastings and stories of the area...amazing deep dish pizza, delightful tea tasting, chocolates, specialty oils, vinegars, and spices...and the best falafel. An experience not to be missed!

Experiences must be booked ahead of time as the food is ordered prior to your arrival at the starting location. Due to this necessary step in the food ordering process, we do not accept walk up traffic.
