Koh Samui, Thailand
Then this can hardly be called a tour... Its merely a transport which brings you to a certain point and give you certain time to stay there. Barely ANY information was given and I mean it. In the end the 'guide' said he is still studying english, as if we didn't realize that before.... Do realize this is not a tour and do not expect to hear any information.
This was our first Food tour ever and now we've decided we want one wherever we go! just hope we will be as blessed with a guide as we were on this one.
The group was small and very diverse, however we were the only europeans there (there were also people from Australia, USA and Brazil). Our guide - Sara was very knowlegeable, told us a lot of interesting facts and stories about food and local surroundings. She seems to know well and love italian food, has great sense of humour, so it was a real pleasure to follow her on this food adventure.
We had all the typical italian food you may think of and luckily the tasting places were spread around the Testaccio neighbourhood, so minor walking in between was appreciated. The tour itself took about 4 hours and there were absolutely no rush.
We were also taught how to differ a real gelato from all the fakes out there in tourist spots and how to judge if its an authentic italian cafe by the price of espresso ;-) As well as given recommendations on restaurants of Rome in a form of brochure.
If you are a foodie and have a spare day in Rome this tour is a must!
