    5 food stops over a 3 hour walking tour. The food at each stop was excellent, with my favorite being the lobster roll. I thought the stops were spaced out enough that I was able to enjoy all the different foods without being stuffed. However, be sure to come with an appetite. Dania was a great guide and gave us quite a bit of history throughout the tour. Drinks are not included unless you purchase the upgraded version, so be sure to bring water.

    Food was great, nice variety, a mix of walking and eating, relaxed pace. The young woman who was our guide was very nice but walked ahead and didn’t really keep the group together well. She didn’t seem terribly interested. Would’ve been nice to be given napkins at every stop and a drink. We only got a friend k at one stop , the first one, glad I brought water. There wasn’t a lot of history but what there was was interesting.

    This tour was great. The food was super fabulous and a great array of different types of food that reflect the city were offered - not to mention plenty of it! Anyhow, our guide was very knowledgeable and so with our delicious meals, we also got some history too. I highly recommend this tour. Definitely worth it.
