there were 7 of us on opening day for the 2014 season. we thoroughly enjoyed the newburyport experience with patrick.
the tour was well worth the price and patrick was a great guide: personable, kind, informative and simply a terrific host. i had purchased the tour for my mom's 79th birthday. she had never done anything like this and was a tad apprehensive but she loved it the second it started. patrick went out of his way to make her day special ...that was an added bonus for us.
we started and ended with desert. in the middle we had a variety of food and drink. we certainly had enough to consider this a feast for lunch. patrick also offered a variety of historical and current pieces of information and made suggestions for other options for after the tour. at each of the stops the owner or shop representative explained certain key features about the business. we had an opportunity to purchase items or go back after the tour. we did both.
the city of newburyport is darling. a great place for the tour. i have been on many food tours both in out of the the usa, this is certainly at the top of all of my experiences. my mom is still telling all her friends what a great time she had. 10 out of 10. thank you much for a great day.
