Great tour! It introduced us to a lot of new foods that we really enjoyed. My husband fell in love with the caramel cheeses we tried while on this tour and ordered some to be shipped to our home. The host had a lot on interesting facts about the local history. I recommend this tour to anyone wanting to try the local foods.
