    What’s not included? 

    Meals & Drinks at Restaurants – Why they are not included? We will guide you to spectacular restaurants and we will recommend the best food and drink they serve at each place according to your taste but you will have the last word of what you would like to taste every time. If you are in a mood for a long tasting menu or just a couple of a-la-carté dishes, that will be your choice.

    We think that pre-booked meals & drinks lower the quality of our customer’s experience at these top restaurants where the Chef could recommend you something fresh from the day or this new creation he/she has just added to their menu. You will have the freedom to eat & drink anything from the restaurant’s menu at your own pace.

    You will pay in local currency directly to the restaurants. If you wish, we could give you an estimation of how much a meal cost in each restaurant you will be eating during the tour.
