Fantastic! Our tour guide, Amber, was very informative as we went from one location to another. We liked the idea where the owner, manager or chef came out & explain what we were going to have. KUDOS to Amber; you did well!

Excellent tour! Tracey was an outstanding guide and each stop was amazing, unique & delicious. Highly recommend this tour to all. It was the perfect activity for our client group of CEO's & Spouses but I know any group would enjoy the experience. Great food, beautiful surroundings, great information - all around perfect!
