This tour is a total rip-off. It is not worth US60 per head for sharing 1-2 orders with 5-6 people from the tour. It is also unorganized by making us eat dessert first, then the soup at the end of the tour.

We joined Kevin for the evening Eat like a local tour. The tour lived up to it's name, as we visited places, and tried food, that we wouldn't have otherwise. Over 5 stops we sampled a wide variety of local cuisine. We liked some dishes more than others, of course, but all of them were interesting, and worth trying. There was a lot of food, so I suggest you go with an empty stomach. Kevin was friendly and fun, and also gave some us some sightseeing as we travelled around. We especially appreciated that the smaller group size 3 made the tour more personal than food tours we have taken in other cities. Overall, an excellent tour and highly recommended.
