“Our Crew Outing at Trader Joe’s”
“Once a year we pick an activity to do as a store. This year we chose the down city Rhode Island Red Food Tour. Very informative and fun trying out local places! The samples were generous and delicious! Check out the tour and learn more about Providence’s local downtown food scene!!”
“Group Outing at Convention”
“We had a fabulous time with Jenny, our tour guide, visiting various establishments and tasting a variety of foods. It was booked through a convention and there were 8 of us in our group. Jenny told us a bit of Providence history to start, then we strolled to 7 very different places. At each stop Jenny gave us background on the place and often the building as well. She also told us about some historical sites as we walked. She was a wonderful guide and we all enjoyed the food. Each establishment even had vegan options! You have the option to add certain alcoholic beverages at a few of the stops if you choose, though none of us did. It was a delightful day and if I came back, I’d request Jenny as my guide!”
“Enthusiastic Guide; Tasty Eats!”
Morgan guided us on the Off-the-Beaten-Path Food & Cultural Walking Tour, sharing highlights of historical sites we passed while detailing the backgrounds of eating establishments we visited and information about each tasting. A nice mix of foods. Easy slightly less than 2 miles of walking. Great for a group outing!!
