This was a wonderful tour. Not only was all the food we tasted great, and the restaurants, shops, and bakeries great...but our guide, Jim, shared so many interesting historical facts about the area. He took us to some out of the way places that we surely would have missed. We were a group of 5 ladies celebrating a friends birthday, and this was a perfect way to do it. Highly recommend it !!
