We thoroughly enjoyed our Granby St. food tour yesterday. John greeted us warmly (despite the rainy and chilly weather!) and provided us with information on the area that was new to us. The restaurants and food samples were delicious and plentiful.

While our guide was knowledgeable about the history of the area, we only went to three different restaurants, which was really disappointing. I have recently been on food tours in Asheville, NC & Louisville, KY and they blew this one away! I'm also purchasing one...More
