Explore this fascinating destination to learn about its offerings, history, scandals, and ghost stories.

    It was decent. I would skip this honestly. Also, MOST of the shops if not all inside the market were already closed. If you want to do this tour, book for an early one. I was truly disappointed:/
    Very interesting

    We had a great time. Carolyn was very interesting and knowledgeable about the market. She gave us several recommendations of things to do and places to eat.
