What if it rains? Will the tour still take place?
Our food tours run rain or shine. We spend a good portion of the time indoors, but you will still be out and about in the neighborhood so we strongly recommend that you dress appropriately for the weather, including an umbrella if necessary. And don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes.
Is shopping allowed during the tour?
We do allow for shopping as long as time permits as we must adhere to a schedule since our vendors prepare for our visits.

We will provide you with a list of the shops you have visited and the addresses so you can return to them if you wish.
