Tour was a good mix of sweet and savory and different kids of foods. Walking thru historic area was nice. The cheese shop was the best. One improvement is to offer water at each stop especially on a hot day.

Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
