"I feel the experience is about 20% overpriced. The appetizers in 2 of the places were way too small, especially since we were given smaller drink glasses, which I am not complaining about. I know drink glasses were small back then, and you don't need anyone on the tour getting hammered. But I feel the food could have been stepped up a little bit. The flatbread at Time was fine, and it certainly was not a great expense for the restaurant to make. I am overall very glad we took the tour. We went into 3 places that were not on our radar and are planning to visit them again sometime."
