About Rhode Island Red Food Tours
Our Rhode Island Red Food Tours offer a delicious 3-3.5 hour walking food tasting experience both in our Newport Neighborhood Food Tour and in our Downcity Providence Food Tour. The Newport food tours will take you both to an off-the-beaten-path Historic Neighborhood in Newport as well as a hot bed of activities for a fun adventure where the locals go. Our Downcity Providence Food Tour will take you into one of the hottest food scenes in the country, it has been making all the "best of lists" in all the major publications. Here we will merge creative food tastings and a vibrant art scene as we walk and talk about the architecture and history of the city. The guided tours will bring you to at least six mouthwatering, local eateries filled with delicious food samplings of regionally influenced and sourced ingredients, enough for a large lunch. You will hear fascinating stories and tales of our rich history, see many examples of the earliest historic architecture in the country and learn about the local culture of the city today. Our unique Food Tour experiences provide an insider's view to the exciting and creative food landscape of Rhode Island. We will leave you with recommendations and tips of places to go and see while visiting Rhode Island. We recommend you take our tours in the beginning of your stay so you go back to some of your favorite eateries you experienced on the tour. Tours are currently April - November

Great Tour Guide (Ellen) but I wish the company would be upfront in their marketing that if you should have an emergency or need to change the date of your Tour, you are out of luck. Money down the drain- so I won’t fall for this again.

Response from Paula S, Owner at Rhode Island Red Food Tours
Responded 2 days ago
Thank you for taking the tour Susan, we're glad you enjoyed our experience with our guide Ellen. Regarding, our cancellation policy, it is clear at the time of booking. In fact, should someone want to purchase the tickets after reviewing all the information on the tours on the website, right beside where you enter your name and credit card # you can read the policy, so it can't be missed right before you submit your purchase. You were not duped or deceived, it's there to be read but unfortunately life happens and some things are out of our control. We understand this, we had to close for a year due to Covid, which was a significant hit to our small business and guides but it was the right thing to do. As I stated to you, we are a small seasonal business, we run small group tours of only 14 at a time, when someone books it is guaranteeing them a ticket while preventing others from purchasing them. I know this was a gift and I understand your dog had surgery and I am really sorry about that. It's unfortunate you couldn't find a friend or family member to share the experience with while your husband stayed home to care for dog. Again, my sincere apologies for any inconvenience this has caused you.

Providence has changed a lot in the last decade. Good changes - many great food choices. The tour guide was great. We learned a lot of fun history as well.

I had a very nice experience on the Downcity Providence Food Tour. We went to a variety of restaurants and we experienced all sorts of different foods. I really enjoyed the Vegan pizza at Plant City. The owner spent a lot of time with us explaining how things were done at the restaurant. I live in Rhode Island and I learned a few new historical facts on the tour. I went back to Geoff’s Superlative Sandwiches and brought home a Reuben for my wife. She loved it.Kudos to Jack, he did a wonderful job as our guide. He is professional, funny and personable. Well done!
