We really enjoyed going into places we would probably not have visited on our own. Also enjoyed the variety of sips and bites, and were surprised we ate as much as we did. Our guide Adrian was awesome - a lot of fun, and very knowledgeable about the food and drinks, and the history tidbits were great.

This was hands down one of the best, most authentic feeling tours I've ever had. Adrian, our guide, was extremely personable and had the perfect mix of history and fun. Each and every place he took us to was wonderful! And it was lovely to see the locals interacting, a sure sign we are with the right guy. The time passed by far too quickly! Honestly if you're contemplating whether or not to do this tour I'll make it easy. Do it!!!
