My boyfriend and I wanted to experience the local city and therefore booked a guided tour with dining experiences. This has been the best investment for our trip and can only be recommended to do as one of the first! Our guide Valerie was nice and sympathetic, good at telling funny facts about the city and could help us with what other things we just had to experience and see while we are in the city. All in all, wonderful experience and a super wonderful guide! Thanks to Valerie !!! Ps only start this trip on an empty stomach as you get plenty to eat! We did not need anything else to eat that day.
