TripAdvisor Review ~ Andrea H.
I am a cautious eater. Our guide opened up these cool little places that I had no idea existed and made them warm, welcoming, and accessible. He took us to six different restaurants, all from different countries and obviously carefully vetted. Great job, Jusep! Looking forward to doing another tour!
