Excellent family activity

We had a great day with Leroy on our food tour. We were travelling with 3 teenage children who loved trying out all the different food we had for breakfast, lunch and then sweet treats. Leroy was great at answering our questions and was very attentive to make sure we had a great experience, including asking for multiple serves of our favourite dishes.
