    Ankhie took us on a delightful tour walking through the city. She is very knowledgeable about the area. The food was great and we got to chat with locals and learn about some of the history. I highly recommend this tour, we were there for 5 days and this was my favorite activity.

    We went to 4 places on this tour with our guide Ankie. First for a cornmeal breakfast hand pie filled with greens, which apparently is a typical breakfast meal for locals. Next we had a delicious shrimp and rice dish at a Front St restaurant, Antoine by the Sea. Wonderful view

    Dear vacationgirl50, Thank you for your kind words! We are happy you enjoyed the food on the Walking tour. Antoine's is a gem and we are happy to have them as our partner. It is always a challenge to satisfy every pallet. Ankie can be a little opinionated and that must be the Dutch coming out and she means no harm. We will surely share your comments with her.
