Absolutely wonderful! Justin is great, and incredibly personable. We began our tour at the candy shop, but quickly went to the Blue & Grey where we had a 'Big Ass Pretzel', Philly, and fries. From there we headed towards the Bakery, but made stops in front of the David Wills home, and the Gettysburg hotel. The bakery was closed, so we did change up our tour to end with ice cream. The next stop was Food 101 where we tried the Wild Mushroom Pizza. I must add, this was AMAZING! We each got two slices of pizza. From there we went to the Gettysburg Chocolate Company and we each got to choose a sample. Our tour concluded with a trip to Lulu's for an ice cream scoop of our choosing. (This was in place of the bakery) Justin was kind, knowledgeable and a joy to tour with! This was plenty of food, but might I suggest half a Philly per guest rather than a third. ;)
