Lauren’s tour of Lafayette gave great insight to the East Bay. I loved learning about the olive oil and vinegar, the sweetness of the cupcake shop and the smoky authentic flavor of the Mexican food. She gave us tidbits of history as we walked and was so mindful of guest's needs. I’d definitely recommend her food tour due to her enthusiasm and her connection with the local community.
