The Northampton Local Food Tour with guides Deborah and Davis was beyond incredible — the highlight of my month! It exceeded our expectations and I would recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys tasting a variety of delicious, fresh foods while learning fascinating information at the same time! This is an excellent activity for those who want to get outside, explore, and learn while social distancing. We visited a number of local spots and everything we tasted (food/drink) was absolutely mouthwatering and unique. I loved learning about the history of Northampton and the Pioneer Valley region, as well as the area’s focus on sustainable agriculture. Through our tour we experienced the way that the people of the Northampton community support local business and sustainable agricultural practices, which has created a wonderful community with incredibly fresh foods. Moreover, Deborah went above and beyond to make this a wonderful experience. She answered my many questions and provided additional information via email, and when I asked for a recommendation for ingredients for a recipe, Deborah suggested a delicious and unique local product. Deborah and Davis are highly knowledgeable about food, food science and more, and were eager to answer our questions — spending the afternoon learning from them was such a treat! We are already planning to attend a bike tour event as well!

Thoroughly enjoyed Deborah's tour through Pioneer Valley Food Tours. It was a great way to get out and enjoy the day. My family of five felt safe throughout as COVID protocols were followed and being outside on a beautiful day in North Hampton. Don't miss all the treats that are included- your belly will thank you as will your overall well-being!

We had a wonderful time on the food tour tasting local treats all while learning about the history of Northampton and the surrounding area. Deborah is a very kind and knowledgable tour guide. The weather was perfect so we got to eat outside in the sunshine, making it feel very safe during these times.

With the current COVID-19 environment I have been searching for a way to safely celebrate both of my daughters birthdays while having an amazing time and making memories. So my mother, my 2 girls and myself set off on what we expected to be a 2 1/2 hour 'standard' food tour. This tour was everything it promised to be and more. We enjoyed a lovely and informative tour of the Northampton Main Street area while sampling delicious farm-to-table products. Deborah was kind, knowledgeable and introduced us to food and places that we would not have found or enjoyed had we decided to wander around on our own. She is connected to her community which was reflected throughout the entire tour. I would definitely recommend this tour.

I signed us up for a Pioneer Valley Food Tour because I thought it would be a great way to learn about the local places to eat and we were not disappointed! Deborah is so kind and knowledgeable, not just about food but specifically the food and food-history of Northampton and the Pioneer Valley. I was a bit worried about how this would work with Covid-19 still happening but Deborah made us feel safe and comfortable the entire time. We sampled food from 5 different places and would definitely book another tour in the future because there is just so much to eat and learn!
