I was very disappointed in this tour. While the three stops (Justin's, Biga, and Gwendolyn) were great places, it was a very small sample of the large number of restaurants within walking distance. I enjoyed some of the history, but had heard most of it...More

Great Food, Guide & Tour Having taken over 10 food tours in many places, we have always found the best ones mix various parts of that city/country's culture to include the cuisine. But of course, how the guide and restaurants deliver makes a big difference....More
