We have been to the market before, but it was nice to hear some inside info about it. The history was very interesting. Chef Kent did a wonderful job explaining about some of the vendors we went to for tastings. There was a good variety of foods including some of the top establishments. It was a small group which was great. He took time to answer questions and gave us time to purchase if we desired.

We've taken many walking city food tours. This ranks with our favorite one in Verona, Italy. The tour was continous with no awkward moments where you're encouraged to buy from vendors Instead, we got a 10% off coupon to use on our own post-tour. This kept things moving! Distance and speed were excellent. Samples were well-placed in order of taste and location. By the end we were comfortably full. Highly recommend this tour.
