We did the Theatre district tour. The 4 hr plus experience was so much fun. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Jenny our tour guide provided us with lots of great historical stories and laughs! Her knowledge and passion for New Haven came out over and over; not bad for a Aussie! The food on the tour... 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

Loved our Theater District Tour with guide, Colin. Great food and drinks, very knowledgeable tour guide. We were stuffed by the time we finished our tour. Colin was entertaining and truly knows New Haven history and architecture. I highly recommend this tour. We will try the other tours soon!

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.

It was interesting to see what everyone’s favorite part of the tour was at the end- and everywhere we stopped got a vote! We ate too much at these... More

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

I cannot recommend this company or its owner enough! Let me start as I do with all my other reviews with a context outline... So my dad LOVES cooking and food and food history etc. So as a gift for his big 5-0, my mom decided to whisk him away on a culinary adventure and since she also surprised him... More

My wife and I had a fantastic tour of downtown restuarants and sites. We had great food and drinks all included, Wow. Natalie was a wealth of knowledge concerning restaurants and historical sites. What a great way to learn about places in New Haven. We live 25 minutes away and didn't know much about were to go, now we do.
