We really enjoyed the experience and learned a lot about food in the region. Katia was a great guide, and very knowledgable. It was a great way of experiencing a lot of different foods if you have limited time - as well as getting great recommendations for other places to eat for the rest of our holiday.

Katia was great! She was extremely knowledgeable with the local food as she was once a local Chef herself. We got a chance to try some great local restaurants while also trying some awesome local wine. Overall a 10/10 experience!

Guide was very knowledgeable and delightful. Tapas bars and food & drink were perfect. Would most definitely recommend this tour.

This was an excellent tour with proper sit down meals. Very enjoyable tour with a very knowledgeable guide.

Great guide and small group, so good interaction and a lost of interesting learning.
