The tour was great! We really enjoyed it. My hubby said to ditch the Brussels sprouts lol. Maybe the BRGR place could offer sliders instead of sprouts?? The milk shake was yummy.

The food wasn’t what I expected. I thought a stop for Brussel sprouts, another for a cracker with a piece of cheese on it and a splash of honey and then another stop where we were served a single caramel didn’t live up to my expectations after reading the description that sold me on the tour. This wasn’t what Rachel ray had in mind either. The seafood chowder and the sushi were both excellent but they were only two of the stops. Our tour guide was wonderful. She gave us a delightful tour of Portsmouth but this was supposed to be a foodies’ tour.

Our tour guide, Colleen, was very knowledgeable and personable. She shared interesting facts about many historic spots around Portsmouth and made many recommendations for places to eat and shop. The food at each stop was unique and tasty. I tried some new things! Very enjoyable tour; highly recommend.

Hi Colleen, I didn't realize until after the end of the tour that you are the originator of it! At least I think so....what a clever idea. Our kids gave it to us (before covid) and thanks so much for honoring their gift certificate. We really enjoyed it, especially the history, some of which we were not at all familiar with. Gilley's was a great first stop if for no other reason than the history. (and everyone should experience poutine at least once!) Kudos to you for what you have put together...a nice variety of stops... including the sushi bar AND Carlson and Byrne! One suggestion is to have water or the chance to purchase a drink at all the major stops. Otherwise, perfect! Diane and Mike 1
