William did an amazing job, and we can't imagine having done the trip without him. His knowledge, enthusiasm, experience and organisational skills, not to mention a great sense of humour, made the trip stress-free and enjoyable.

Great experience but was hoping for more hands-on cooking opportunities in each city. William was fantastic! He picked great restaurants and always provided delicious selections.
