This was a fun tour. The food tastings were very generous. The guide was wonderful. My only criticism is that there was no sweet stops, everything was savory- pizza, ham and cheese croissant, Hot Chicken slider, and pulled pork meat pie, and wine. Everything was delicious and very filling.

The tour was fun and informative. The food was diverse and very tasty. I went back the next day for more hand pies.
