Happy Customer

“”a MUST DO Adventure…” Even for LOCALS!!!”

OVER-THE-TOP Incredible!!! We try to do a Foodie Tour in every city we visit, when we first get there, so we know where to eat during our stay. this tour, by far, had TOO MANY awesome choices!!! There wasn’t a place we wouldn’t go to…if we had more time!

Make sure you COME HUNGRY because even though the portions are small, there are a LOT of them, and you will leave FULL! We were grateful that there was a short walk between restaurants to give our stomachs a rest!
