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!
