Great food and conversation! A must do!

After a trip cancellation last year, we decided to rebook this tour because of the great reviews that we read, and I thought it'd be nice to do this tour on our second day in order to get the "lay of the land". Emily did not disappoint. We set up a meeting spot and were on our way. It was great to have someone so knowledgable about food and the area. Emily was engaging, intelligent and super nice. The food was AMAZING. I am still dreaming about the barbacoa and the empanadas. OMG. The awesome thing about taking this tour is that it got us off the main tourist drag (Avenida Quinta), and we were able to navigate ourselves to some favorite restaurants of the locals, as well as, revisit a few of the places from the tour. Thanks Emily!
