Our guide was the best; knowledgeable, informative, friendly, courteous, and patient. The food was terrific. I would recommend this tour to anyone. It is also close by (within walking distance) to several other major attractions.

Our guide Andrew was very knowledgeable and really nice. Farmers Market would not be the same for us without this tour!

This is a great and informative tour done by Alex. Followed by wonderful meats, cheeses and of course their signature dish, paella. Served with wine to share among the new friends we meet on the tour. Great time!

Response from Fechef | Reviewed this property |
yes it would be great for kids; but I would recommend that they be older than 6. While you are walking around the farmer's market there are opportunities to sit so it should be good for kids. Have fun!

The places you go on the tour are certainly good for children and they are welcome on the tour. You still have to pay full price for each unless they are under 5 yes old. It is a good experience for all.
