    Dave was a very personable guide
    He made sure everyone was comfortable and secure. Our disparate group became cohesive very quickly. I think everyone enjoyed the tour as much ad i did.

    Really enjoyed our tour with Dave and our fellow travelers. Dave was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the area. He was very attentive to our inquiries and needs. We loved all of our food tastings. I highly recommend this tour.

    Maybe a increased portion to be indoors otherwise good food and learning. Enjoyed the review of historical monuments. La tomate was my favorite venue

    This was our first food tour and it was fantastic. Shannon was our "leader" and she was great. The tour was just my family (a group of 5). It was as if she was a member of our familly and we learned a little history too!

    We loved Dave our tour guide and would recommend them for this type of tour. Food was amazing and of course the view from the Cairo Building. Thanks again.

    We had a lot of fun. The tour was led by a knowledge guide who made the group feel comfortable and at ease. The food our guide had chosen was spectacular. This was our first small group food tour and based on our experience here we will be going on many more.

    We've been on Food tours all over the world and frankly, this one was not worth the time. We went to three different restaurants, that were ok, but nothing outstanding. Most of the food tours we've been on talk about the local history of some of the area as you pass it. This one not so much. She did stop occasionally and told us about a few buildings, but we were in a historical part of town, Embassy Row, and we didn't get anything on our 30 minute walk around that area. The last place wouldn't let us sit inside, so we had to eat chocolate dripping Cannoli outside on a napkin. Couldn't use the restroom either. We left.
