This was a great tour. Gail was our guide and she was amazing. She knows everything possible about Burlington history and made it very interesting, along with being so friendly. The food stops were nice choices. If I remember correctly, there was one drink stop, one dessert stop (delicious grilled pears!), two food stops, and a small quinoa salad upon arrival. It would have been nice to have maybe one more stop or one more drink, but this food tour also has a lower price than others we have done in the past. Overall, I would highly recommend this for an afternoon in Burlington.

Worth every penny of it. Our guide Carolyn is funny, enthusiastic, passionate, caring, and knowledgeable. Of all the foodie tours that I’ve done, this is the only one where a food is offered up front. Carolyn did a good job letting us know up front on how much walking it is to the next stop. It’s obvious there is a lot of thought put into the itinerary. I came away feeling full and a tad more knowledgeable about Burlington’s past. And I got some exercise in for the day. What’s not to like? Keep up the good work guys!

We chose this tour because it was really unique. We did a Thursday tour because we figured it would be low key and it would give us a reason to duck out of work early. The Thursday idea worked out really well, and we had a beautiful day. We were really impressed. We learned a lot about the history of Burlington and sampled some really nice foods from restaurants we haven't frequented (and we also passed a bakery that wasn't on the tour but we thought we needed to visit at a later date). You will not end this tour hungry.

This is a wonderful tour, we learned a lot about the history and culture of Burlington. It is a lovely way to spend a quiet afternoon taking in the sights and sounds and tastes of the city while being immersed in its past. Kudos to the guides (Elise) for their in-depth research and for sharing their knowledge w us with so much enthusiasm! Burlington is lucky to have you guys!!

My husband and I received a gift certificate for this tour as a Christmas present. We are so glad! We had a wonderful afternoon of trying foods at restaurants in Burlington with two groups of "reunion" women who were also great fun. The walk was doable for a person in their 70s and the presentations were well done. We travel to Burlington periodically but now we look at it with different eyes.
