Annette was our tour guide. She was exceptional! We had a number of "inside" tours like the cheese, olive oil, bread and mosaic street area. We would highly recommend this tour and ask for Annette.

Had a great tour with Julia! Although it was a pretty chilly day, we had a really great time and tasted a lot of different foods, visited the magic gardens and learned more about the history in the area. Would definitely recommend!
