You'll visit restaurants including a real western style brunch (on weekends), Mediterranean foods, tex-mex, and some delicious wings. The macarons at a local french patisserie are also a delicious treat!!

I think you can add alcohol to the tour for an additional charge. We just did the food part and had a blast. There were 11 of us in our group, and 2 others that joined our group. It was like a traveling party.
