Hello Vivian, Thank you for the excellent review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the tour so much. As I mentioned on the tour, as the vendor stops can change daily, I provide my card at the end of the tour so I can provide a list of the locations of the daily stops through an email or text. Happy to provide that at any point after the tour. I hope the rest of your visit went well. All the best, Andy
