"We would suggest one thing. We had no dietary restrictions but felt that two dishes were TOO salty: the mushroom taco and the spinach crepe. All other food tasted great, especially the Korean restaurant, our favorite. Our guide was very friendly and lots of fun. The desserts were yummy but there was no reserved seating which was awkward."
