We had a wonderful time on the taco tour. The food was great. Different at each stop. We got to see a mural that is animated if you look through an app. Roy and Alex were wonderful! Great guides! I walk with a cane. They were very thoughtful, parking by curbs to make it easier for me to climb in the van. All around good day!
