Walking tours are always a great way to learn a city and when food is involved it's even better. Even as a local I learned things and went to places i'd never been or have been meaning to go to but never got around to:)

Thanks to all those who helped out on this question: certainly no dress code - and yes, comfortable shoes are great, but the total distance for most tours is only 1.5 km with lots of resting!
