What a great tour ! Our guide Elise was fantastic and knowledgeable about not only the city and the food but about the country and its culture and share so much with us. The different foods we tried were all excellent and very eclectic which was awesome. The last stop in this tiny coffee place was incredible, one of the best coffee I ever tried. I think we could have stayed all day chatting there with Elise!
