I bought a Living Social deal for the Newport tour and was looking forward to spending the afternoon with friends. I called three times to book the tour with no response to my messages. I then sent an email. Again, no response. I hadn't read any of these reviews but thought to check Trip Advisor after the ignored email. Lo... More

Do not waste your time or money on this tour. Mike never gets back to you in a timely manner. We finally had to involve Living Social, and even after that, we were booked (finally) for a Saturday, only to get an email THAT MORNING canceling the tour because we were the only two people signed up! I had to... More

Bought a coupon have tried to contact them numerous times and have never heard from them. Left messages and sent e-mails and they have never contacted me. Totally unprofessional. I would recommend never buying a living social or a groupon for this company. Stay away.

Please don't use this company. My mom bought a Groupon for my boyfriend last year and I tried countless times to get intouch with them to schedule a date by phone and by e-mail. No one ever bothered to call me or e-mail me back. Not even to say sorry they were busy but would get back to me later.... More

We purchased a groupon and made a reservation. When we showed up we were NOT on the list. When we attempted to reschedule, we NEVER GOT A RESPONSE. After numerous attempts, we just gave up. Luckily Groupon credited our account. Save your time and money and just go out and have a nice dinner.

I SO wish that I would have taken the time to read these reviews prior to buying the groupon because, I too was sucked in and then completely ignored for MONTHS! I purchased the groupon back in August and emailed them immediately following all of the steps on their website and requesting a tour date of November 9th. I must... More

After purchasing a Groupon, I reached out a cumulative SEVEN times by email and/or phone, leaving several messages. I even attempted reaching out through Facebook to get a response. Groupon assisted in reaching out as well and was able to connect with the company. I was told Newport Gourmet Tours would contact me within 72 hours after Groupon made contact.... More
