I took this tour with two friends, all of us new to New Haven. WE have a terrific time, Colin does an amazing job of weaving history, food and drinks into this tour. We ended the tour at the New Haven Symphony which was in a gorgeous restored building and the music was fantastic. The restaurants were unique and delicious.... More

Just returned from an awesome afternoon exploring New Haven's theater district and the great restaurants there. Unfortunately it started to rain and became very windy as we were walking through the beautiful Yale campus, but Jennie made sure we stopped under cover where we wouldn't get soaked. The restaurant selection was outstanding as was the variety of foods we tasted.... More

I went with my girlfriend on the Theatre District tour and we both had a blast. The tour is a great way to connect with other couples in the state and also get a "taste" of some of the best restaurants in New Haven. Our tour guide, Jenny, provided us with a wealth of historical information about New Haven, Yale... More

This was our second Taste of New Haven adventure. This time we went on the Theater District tour. Jenny from Australia, was an awesome tour guide. She was super knowledgeable about the history of New Haven and she was a lot of fun and has a bubbly personality. She definitely made the tour much more enjoyable.

We had a wonderful time on our theater district tour today. What a blast! The heat was a killer (96 degrees) but that didn't dampen the spirits of our tour guide, Jenny. She was energetic and impressively knowledgeable. What a wonderful way to spend a day. Totally worthwhile. I can't wait to try another tour! I recommend the tour time... More
