Our tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. Al of the restaurants seemed to be please to have us come by and their food was excellent. Was a very hot day but there were plenty of breaks and the guide brought water for everyone.

We had a very small group of 2 unrelated couples of 2 different age groups. Our guide (Susan) was very enthusiastic as well as informative. You could tell she loves her city and knows the really good places to see and enjoy a good meal.

Guide was entertaining with fact, folklore and food information imparted in a way that made the whole thing fun and informative. More than enough food for us and a great way to learn about the area. Highly recommended and would do this type of tour early into any trip. Good info for the rest of the stay.

We had a small group of 10, it was well paced, extremely informative particularly re the local village life and history. Food was excellent, even on the larger size on occasion. Would strongly recommend.

However, I had been on this tour a few years ago and I believe the restaurants we visited were better than this time. Some were the same, but some were different. I don't think we got as much food as we might have and the quiche and dessert at the patisserie was not very good in comparison to last time.
