Michelle was amazing. Very informational and interesting, I honestly don't think many people could have provided the range of information on health, the current circumstance of the food industry, wonderful recipes and an amazing cultural experience. She is truly an amazing woman and phenomenal tour guide, I would recommend Michelle to anyone, especially those interested in health, quality food and cooking.

Attended: Boston Chinatown Market Tour
 
Boston's Chinatown is not very large so I was not sure what to expect. Our tour guide Jackie was great! She did a wonderful job telling the history of Chinatown while letting us sample a variety of foods known to their culture. Each stop was quite educational. We ended with Dim Sum which was a lot of fun. Highly recommend this tour!

While not a big lover of dim sum, the tour was so informative and interesting. Loved going to the herbalist and seeing him work with patients and put together tinctures. Got a great list of restaurants and went into the BBQ place which I never would have had to go into before...that was yummy.

Suzy was a great tour guide. As a pastry chef, she had a great deal of knowledge about many things. I learned a great deal while tasting some of the tastiest foods of the North End. I would highly recommend this tour!
