My friends and I had a great time learning about (and tasting) craft beer, enjoying tasty food and getting in some local history. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this tour to locals and visitors alike!

From start to finish this was a great tour. Food was the focus, but history was thrown in there too. It rained the whole time, but the distance in between stops was not too far, so an umbrella worked just fine.

The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous
mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The
blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic
collection of entertainment, from theatres and
cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch
souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is
one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and
