    Min kæreste og jeg ville gerne opleve den lokale by og bookede derfor en guidet tur med madoplevelser. Dette har været den bedste investering for vores tur og kan kun anbefales at gøre som noget af det første! Vores guide Valerie var dejlig rar og sympatisk, god til at fortælle sjove facts om byen og kunne hjælpe os med hvilke andre ting vi bare måtte opleve og se imens vi er i byen. Alt i alt dejlig oplevelse og en super skøn guide ! Tak til Valerie !!! P.s. start kun denne tur på Tom mave, da man får rigeligt at spise! Vi havde ikke behov for andet at spise den dag.
