It’s hard for me to write this. I usually go on food tours everywhere I go and usually I try at least four different things the least. During this three hour tour I tried one thing and it was OK. We walked one hour in the heat, waited 30 minutes in line, ate this falafel in about 10 minutes, and then she asked if I was ready to go back to my hotel. I am very disappointed with this experience and the money I paid was not corresponding with the Encounter I had. Also, the Tour guide did mention taking the metro at first but I thought why should we take it when we’re about to go eat. I had no idea we would be walking for an hour. Once I knew we were going back to the hotel I thought maybe we should try the metro but once we got to the ticket booth she mentioned I would have to buy not only mine but her ticket as well after paying $257 for a falafel.

You are getting a mail before the tour in order to understand your food expectations. But when you get there, it does not match at all. For example, if I asked for a good piece of meay/fish and I was not offered one, it is a big disappointment for me.
