I love food tours and thoroughly enjoyed this one. Elle was knowledgeable about the city and food locations. The tour was small - just my family. Elle was able to adjust the tour locations based on us.

This is why I do a food tour in every city I visit. Elle’s knowledge and passion of food is what I love. And you visit little gems that you wouldn’t find on your own. I wish I had more time here to enjoy the restaurants, and maybe next time her little vineyard. Thanks again Elle.
