"Tour was fun, guide was great and told some cool facts/stories about the Heights and Houston that I didn't know even living here most of my life. Only issue was that for some reason they did not receive my dietary restriction, so I really didn't have anything to try at the first location. That was disappointing but appeared to be just a mix-up because there was a vegan on the tour who received specialized tastings."

"Our host John was extremely friendly and personable, and we had a great tour with him. Due to a family emergency, we had our 3-year-old granddaughter with us, and both the phone representative and John were very accommodating and welcoming to allow us to bring her along. Food was fantastic and we will be visiting several of the restaurants again. Please apologize to John -- until we were driving away, I did not realize my husband had taken John's personal pizza when John had offered the leftovers from Coltivare. My apologies because my husband was too busy enjoying his gelato to hear the story about how the pizza arrived at our table. But needless to say it was very good and my husband enjoyed it for lunch the next day. Appreciated John remembering about the seafood allergies for one of our group. Very personal attention to details! Would highly recommend the tour. Helped that it was a gorgeous day for a walk through The Heights. This was a Christmas gift from our son, and we were pleased to let him know how much we enjoyed it - - we sent him the Houston mural pic of us that John took. Again another great touch!"
