The tour was great and Lili was a wonderful guide. We had a few hours before the tour and attempted to explore on our own. The tour and Lili provided a much more indepth experience and made me wish we had another day on the island to explore more. All the food was really delicious.

Lili, our tour guide, was entertaining as well as informative. Just the right mix of food, history and gossip! We were the couple who needs GF, and each place delivered something delicious with no complaints. We didn't feel like we missed out on anything. Thanks Lili for a great Mother's Day tour!

Lili and Paul was our tour guides. Paul was born on the island and had a lot of personal stories to tell. We did the 3 hour food tour and stopped at 6 restaurants where the food was great. We highly recommend it.
