    We visited several historical sites and tasted a little bit of each one and learned their history (chocolates, macarons, cheeses, wine, caramel, etc). With the exception of the cheeses and a stop to taste olive oils, all the others were sweet. We like it, but we miss tasting more drinks and savory dishes instead of going to different chocolate shops. The price is also quite high, they could include more savory foods for the price we paid.

    The only downside at all, if I had to be picky, was trying to find the meetup point. Once we connected with our guide (the staff were very helpful with this, just follow contact us link from the app), we had an amazing experience. We sampled so many wonderful foods, saw beautiful architecture, and learned the history of the neighborhood from a genuine local - including shops, government buildings, churches and more.
