Pleasantly Pleased - Had a lovely time Lancaster, PA' Foodie tour. Kendra, our tour guide was excellent. She was not only knowledgeable, but personal as well. She even convinced my husband, who is not open to try new foods. However, he was well pleased. The tour provided plenty of food and of course a variety. We were not hungry to say the least.

Highly recommend/Great date idea - Mable was an outstanding host who was friendly, kind, and made us feel welcome. She knew the shop owners well and had fun stories to tell about some local history of the city. My wife and I were running a few minutes late and Mable was kind enough to call and help us to our first stop.

Recommend this experience even for locals - We went on the international food tasting tour today with Kendra. She was so knowledgeable about local businesses, foods, and interesting facts. She was so gracious even though a part of our group was late to arrive. All the business owners were happy to see her so i think she must be really well connected there. We had lovely weather for December so it was great to walk around the city. I'm planning to book another tour soon.

Great experience! - The food was delicious and the stories that were told to us about the business owners were very interesting. The experience as a whole was one of the best things I’ve done this year. So glad we got to experience this and a little rain didn’t stop the fun. Also Kendra, our tour guide, was an absolute pleasure! Highly recommend!
