Spent a wonderful spring afternoon on the first Taste of Newburyport of the season, with Cape Ann Foodiie Tours. Owner Cindy Hendrickson does a wonderful tour of culinary high lights, historical knowledge of the city, and some fun backstory, all while interacting with the group as we walked around Newburyport. Our group started out at the legendary Grog, right on time. They featured the perfect cup of clam chowder, and cooked to perfection scallops wrapped in bacon. The group moved right along to a stop at the Tannery, where a local farmers market was in full session, we stopped in at the Chococoa baking company for a twist on their famous whoopee pies. Bite sized and delicious! On to the Olive Oil company where we got to sample a great selection of oils and balsamics, Not to give all the secret venues away but we sampled some other great appetizers and views along the way. Wrapped up the afternoon, with our host at Salt Cellar reflecting with a glass of wine and camaraderie. I would recommend this tour to anyone of any age group, and would love to take in another tour that Cindy does in Gloucester. Cheers and bon appetite!

My husband and I have been on 4 other foodie tours in other locations, but this by far, is the best. Cindy, our host, had a wealth of knowledge about Gloucester and Cape Ann - its history, culture and anecdotes. We enjoyed her pleasant attitude. Now, for the food - it was outstanding! Everything Gloucester is known for was covered, such as scallops wrapped in bacon, clam chowder, fisherman's sandwich, locally brewed beer, homemade chocolate turtles, and more! It is difficult to find many venues open off-season, so we felt fortunate in being able to participate in this tour at the end of February. This is a "Don't Miss If You Are in Gloucester" event!

I wanted to surprise my girl friend with something unusual on her birthday. I learned about Cape Ann Foodie Tours from the owner, Cynthia. I made reservations and we were joined by three friends. The five of us were treated to more than just a walking food tour. We learned a lot about the history of Gloucester. We live on Cape Ann and she told us things we did not know. We stopped at six places along the hour and each place was different and delicious. I highly recommend Cape Ann Foodie Tours as a fun thing to do. If you are visiting, check it out. Not everyday is a beach day.

Wow - what a nice review! Just the type of compliments we like to see on TripAdvisor. I loved having you on the tour; I'm currently in Mexico at a conference and planning on checking out all of the Foodie Tours in San Miguel de Allende. Try our Taste Newburyport tour next time! Thank you for taking the time to write and we look forward to seeing you again. Best, Cindy

Do you enjoy ... exploring a town that is new to you or maybe it's a old friend you haven't visited in awhile. Newburyport is a very special jewel in the fact that it offers, great restaurants, boutique shops surrounded by a charming red brink town with lots of interesting history. And who better to deliver the History with some fun filled unique facts then Cindy of Cape Ann Foodie Tours. We indulged in some local color, pleasing our taste buds at a few of the local taverns and learning of many more newer food venues. I highly recommend this Tour . Great chuckles with new and older friends. Simply delicious. Do treat yourself!
