I send a message to Backstreet Academy through Whatsapp, they respond very quickly. During my trip, I encountered some problem about transportation fee and they helped me resolve it immediately.

This was just the best street foood tour - so unusual and fun. Hario was brilliant, and we were a small group which was great. It was excellent value. Fully reviewed on my food blog, Lardy Ladies, as it was so interesting.
