"Great tour guide. She was excellent and personable. The experience lacked a script on the culture. Very disjointed. Not sure if the market trip was useful. "

"My wife and I went on the Little Arabia Tour in Chicago recently. The tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. It was as if we were going out with a friend. The Lebanese and Persian food we sampled was plentiful and delicious. We learned a great deal about the people in the diverse neighborhood we were in. Great experience!"
