We got this tour as a birthday gift for our friend.. short version: it was perfect! We enjoyed walking the tour alone so that you can make as many stops as you like, but Laia shared all important information with us. The vouchers were packed soo cute and even with QR codes for Google Maps to make it more easy for you. The food we got was so so good! Small traditional appetizers, refreshments, but also large portions were included. We even have vouchers left for the next day! The day was wonderful, we were all thrilled. Laia even recommended a pizzeria for the evening. We would do it again and again! Highest Recommendation for this one
