Our guide was the best; knowledgeable, informative, friendly, courteous, and patient. The food was terrific. I would recommend this tour to anyone. It is also close by (within walking distance) to several other major attractions.

Response from Fechef | Reviewed this property |
yes it would be great for kids; but I would recommend that they be older than 6. While you are walking around the farmer's market there are opportunities to sit so it should be good for kids. Have fun!

The places you go on the tour are certainly good for children and they are welcome on the tour. You still have to pay full price for each unless they are under 5 yes old. It is a good experience for all.
