This is an excellent tour! The variety of foods, markets, and historical sites was amazing. Over the course of 9 days, we got to sample countless dishes and desserts, and even learned to cook several of them. First class lodging all the way, including a couple of nights at a beach-side resort. Just be careful you don't eat too much breakfast at the hotel because the food just keeps on coming!
