Overview of festivals in Hoi An

The locals in Hoi An are very religious. During the most important festivals, the New moon and the full Moon festivals, locals become vegetarian. You can’t find a restaurant with a free table. Before the full moon day, there is a Full moon festival. It’s great festival with beautiful colored lanterns all over Hoi An. You can’t see any street lights, no cars or motorbikes, just beautiful colored lanterns. The whole atmosphere is a thing you need to experience when you are visiting Hoi An. It’s planned every full moon, so you can’t miss it!

Milan’s Amazing Aperitivo Tour

Fizemos o passeio/tour : Amazing Aperitivo Tour, a guia Sara era simpática, apenas simpática.
Notamos na guia algum cansaço , mais um grupo de turistas , que teria de mostrar o caminho....
Não demonstrou gosto na visita/passeio.
Os conhecimentos que dava sobre o que perguntamos eram vagos e sem conteúdo.
Achamos que não valeu a pena , uma pena , a guia deveria mostrar gosto e dedicação no que faz.

Berlin Favourite Food Tour: 10 tastings

The food tour with Carlos had a good mix of history, current events, and, well, food. You'll eat at a few places that would never show up in a tourist's guidebook, and also be sure to ask about the falafel place that is almost a literal hole in the wall! The tour is also quite flexible, depending on how long you would like to stay at a certain place, or whether you'd like to eat in/out, etc. Recommended!

Roman Food Tour: The 10 Tastings

This wasn't far off!
For a group of six - including two vegetarians - we were all very well catered for. The 10 tastings Roman food tour was unanimously the highlight of our 4 day trip to Rome. It gave us a really good insight in to what culinary delights Rome has to offer from market vegetables to ricotta and cherry pie in the Jewish Quarter.
Francesca was personable and helpful, continuing to help us find the best places to eat during the following days of our stay.
