“A Great Time for A Birthday Surprise!”
“We 4 women loved every aspect of the tour: the choice of restaurants, the actual food, the walking and talking, the history, and the other guests on the tour with us! Andrew was awesome and Paula met us with a birthday cake since there were so many birthdays in the group. Fabulous!”
“Newport food tour with Sarah.”
“I bought this tour for my dad’s birthday to explore more of and learn more about Newport. Sarah was a very knowledgeable and fun tour guide! We enjoyed the day very much and would definitely recommend it to locals and tourists alike!”
“Great Birthday Celebration!”
“Our tour guide was Jenny. She did a fabulous job of taking us around downtown Providence stopping at 7 different foodie joints. Each venue had a unique vibe depending on what you were looking for. It was my son’s 17th birthday celebration, and the group made sure to look out for him as well as to pass him any extras. Our group was lucky enough to find a floating Happy Birthday balloon that they passed on to my son. We couldn’t have asked for a more fun time or group of people to spend the day with. Thanks!!”
