Gerry is fantastic! He’s fun, friendly and knowledgeable. We went on this tour as a cruise excursion (booked on our own) in 2019 and loved it so much we did the same tour, again, 3 years later. And since we had been before, Gerry customized it for us and brought us to a couple new places!

Most memorable was the restaurant where we had the whole fish. Gerri was great leading us through the tour, informative and was always upbeat. Just a thought to better the tour maybe to have like a sample platter of a few of the fruits/vegetables in the market for tour to try.

Want to go where locals go and not tourists?

If you're looking for a tour which takes you where locals go and NOT where tourists go, look no further. Gerry was the perfect guide. He was friendly, accommodating, and fun to hang out with. He introduced to some foods we would've never tried on our own. This is exactly what we wanted.
