“We did the market tour and the group consisted of three people. The market was beautiful, clean and very cool. The locals at the market were super friendly and fun. Josh was our guide and he was great! His sense of humour was on point and you can tell he really enjoyed leading this tour. The food was so good and we were so full! Highly recommend this tour!”
