Our tour guide, Amy, was very informative and gave a very nice tour. The food portions were generous and the timing at each event was adequate to keep the group moving. We had a lovely mix of PA residents and vacationing, interesting folks! Would recommend!

The food tour was great. We went on the tour with children (4, 12 and 18) and all 3 had a good time. The tour guide knew the area and the restaurants/food was great.
