This is such a great way to learn about the downtown food scene - Rachel and all of the people in the establishments we visited were great! Oh yes and the food was yummy and filling. I highly recommend the Night Out tour.

If you eat food you need to take one of these tours!! Rachael is amazing and she knows all about the food scene of Nova Rachael is amazing. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who doesnt want to waste money on uneventful food.
