Great overall tour with a good variety of food choices with 2 "large" meals sandwiched with some unique offerings in-between of Tea Room to Italian Deli sampling. Tour operator provided historical aspects along the way that were informative.

Don't make any plans for afterwards. John had lots of stories and information so he went long. Thankfully everyone was fine with that and so we had a great time hearing the stories and stopping for great company and food well into the evening.

Loved being taken to so many places that we might have gone right past. The tea tasting was fun. All the food was great, tried things we might never have had. All the history was great. Isabella was our guide , she was wonderful. We were the only ones signed up for the day so she customized the tour around our likes and dislikes. So glad she did not cancel. One of the best tour guides we have ever had.

Amazing tour with an even more amazing guide (Brian)! We were blown away with how many interesting and delicious spots we visited, and with how much history Brian shared with us along the way. It can be difficult to avoid tourist traps when choosing restaurants while traveling, so we LOVED being shown around to these small, authentic, family-owned spots. The highlight for our group was the tea shop where we tasted several different teas and learned about their health benefits from the lovely, charismatic owner. Even the coffee devotees among us couldn’t leave without buying a few bags of tea to try to replicate the experience at home! I highly recommend this tour and Brian especially.

This was one of the best tours we have ever taken! We couldn’t ask for a better guide than Brian. Not only was he hilarious, but his knowledge of the neighborhoods and town really made this tour special!
