    I was the only person booked on this tour and I was looked after very well. The tour was very informative and we covered a lot of things. My guide was wonderful and as I was travelling alone 19yr old female he even organised a taxi back to my hotel so I would get back safely. I really enjoyed my day out. The food was delicious and the markewts a lot of fun.

    The tour was pretty fun but very overpriced for what you get. The best part was the visit to the farm/restaurant. The lunch provided was great! The big disappointment was that our tour guide didn't drop us at the flower market. We were dumped off several blocks away and had to find it.
