I had read all the reviews and everyone spoke so highly of Tom and how it was such a boozie day!My day was totally different. We met at the St. Teresa a tram station at 2pm but it was 2.45 before we even got in a tram!This was very long and tedious I am aware it's free but the fact we were a group of eight it would have been nice to be fast tracked! While on the tram the views are truly fabulous and Santa Teresa's is really nice place. At the first Resturaunt was Editorials Santa twe paid our money 55r with a coupon or 60r without plus 50r for the food. We arrived here by 3.15. I paid by card in the first Resturaunt. We received three dishes and drink divided by 6 of us. Tuna croquette with tradition green mayonnaise( I think it has coriander mixed through it) this was okay, polenta cubes with lovely fruit chutney this was my favourite they only gave us a tiny bit of chutney more was needed for sure and a pancake made from with bacon this was my least favourite. We had two of each dish except for the pancake just one portion each. We next and had cheese balls and the compote made from berry's here it was frozen I have had it in Paraty but it was more like a gel but I liked the frozen texture we had two each. Our guide told us to dip it as some people like to combine the two, I tried it it was actually really okay. We went to see a local artist and then we went to the next Resturaunt where we had Shrimp wrapped in Kale leaf with like a coconut sauce, deep fried kale with blackness and pork and then a cake with pastry base cream cheese and gava fruit. The cake was delicious! Then that was it we went for one drink and git a van back down to Gloria station. The tour was finished at 5.00. My guide was called Paz there was minimal drinking and we only spent 42r so we got change. I would recommend to people to do it but make sure you eat before you go as its all samples not full portions. Also we had a drink at the very end other groups went and did Curshasa tasting and saw how caprini's are made! I was expecting more from the tour just on the basis that everyone who had done the tour with Tom seemed like a totally different tour. Santa Teresa is a fabulous spot and if you don't like the food you get to see it
