“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.”
“Great group activity!”
“Great way to check out the town, eat some delicious food and learn a bit of history. The guides were super friendly and the overall experience led to an even better weekend for the group I was with.”
“What an amazing experience!”
” 8 of us went on this Newport Food Tour and had a blast. We met wonderful fellow foodies and our guide, Morgan, was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, friendly, fun and engaging. The tour was a terrific blend of Newport food & rich Newport history. We made 6 stops and tried various kinds of food, both sweet & savory. Our group loved the sticky ribs, the calamari and the blood orange margarita best; however, everything we ate was excellent! Great destinations for our next trip. Highly recommend doing this as a fun way to see part of Newport, learn some history, eat great food & make new friends!
