We had a great tour that exposed us to places to eat we would have never found as visitors. It was very helpful to know the history of the places we went and it gave us a real feel for the culture. We also walked through several neighborhoods and learned quite a bit about the history and the architecture. Great tour! Easy walk and pace. Just Right.

What a wonderful surprise this walking tour turned out to be. We stumbled on it online and were so glad we did. Our tour guide was adorable and very personable. Easy walking through great neighborhoods and even better samples of food. You are full midway through the trip but they have it routed as such that you nibble and then exercise a little of it off.
