From the start it was a great experience!! There is a pin drop from your confirmation of the meeting place. Our guide Keiko immediately greeted us as well as 2 other guides. As our group grew by 2, we had a chance to introduce ourselves to our fellow adventurers David and Jess. It was nice to talk to people who enjoy food and walking tours as much as we do!! Keiko was a great guide!! She gave us so much history of the market and two of the most important take aways for the day was ... Always ask if you can take a photo at each stall (not everyone appreciates you snapping photos) and look, but if you're not going to buy, keep moving so the flow of pedestrian traffic doesn't get clogged. We had an awesome time with Jess, David and Keiko!!! The personal touches from Keiko really made me feel special. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. They keep the group size small so you don't feel like you're taking up too much space.
