It was such an amazing and fun tour! Our guide Maria was super sweet and it felt like we spent the evening with a good friend showing us her favorite food stops in the city! We ate so many delicious things and I got exactly what I wanted from this tour: someone telling me where it was safe and delicious to eat!! We can 100% recommend the tour :)

The guide was nice but the tour was not really a food tour. We stopped at some few food places, but we were also bring to several touristic gifts shops, which is not what we wanted. A bit disappointing then
