We liked all the food and drink samples. The best part was probably the stories that went along with each of the places. Andy was knowledgeable about other sites in and around the city as well.

Our guide was a local who was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. This was a great way to get a taste of the city, learn some interesting history, and discovery places that you never would have encountered on your own. Great for tourists or locals.
