The Theater District food tour with Natalie this past Sunday was phenomenal! Not only was Natalie well informed and personable and a masterful guide, the restaurants included on the tour were all very good to excellent. The food quality and quantity was better than any tour we've taken. The ahi tuna sliders and hand cut fries at Temple Grill were... More

The food and drink alone would make this 4-hour excursion worth it, but what really made the tour special was guide (and owner) Colin Caplan's witty and knowledgeable commentary throughout the day. We chose the Theater District tour, and were introduced to several restaurants and shops we had never experienced before, even though we live in the area. The first... More

There aren't enough words to express how happy I am that I FINALLY got to experience the Taste of New Haven. A group of friends surprised me with this tour for my 40th birthday. It was a perfect gift for me, since I am a die hard "foodie" and was born and raised in this beautiful city. We did the... More

This an interesting way of spending a few hours with friends or a community group. You get to sample a variety of restaurants while learning a bit more about New Haven. Temple Grill and Bar Pizza were excellent. Kelly's was good. I wasn't impressed with the food or atmosphere at Brick. There were also a tasting at Wine Thief (good)... More

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

What an amazing culinary experience biking around New Haven, CT with Colin (owner and tour guide)! We were new to biking and this recreational bike tour is the perfect fit for any leveled bike rider. (We owned our own bikes however our meeting place was at a local bike store where bikes could be rented.) Our flat-roaded bike tour visited... More

What a tremendous afternoon!! New Haven is filled with delicious tastes and wonderful, history filled site. For only $55.00 our group filled our bellies at several restaurants with outstanding food and drinks. The walk is approximately 1 mile and is intermingled with multiple restaurant stops and viewing of some majestic architecture in New Haven. A GREAT way to see a... More

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
