We enjoyed the tour. Some interesting places that we would not have gone to. We were a group of 4, ourselves and our friends so it felt like a personal tour.More

My friends and I had a great time learning about (and tasting) craft beer, enjoying tasty food and getting in some local history. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this tour to locals and visitors alike!

From start to finish this was a great tour. Food was the focus, but history was thrown in there too. It rained the whole time, but the distance in between stops was not too far, so an umbrella worked just fine.

cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch

one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and
