"I have lived in the New Haven area all my life. I learned more about the history of New Haven in the time spent with Colin (tour guide), than in the years spent here growing up. The restaurants visited were out of this world, and we were treated like royalty. The younger adults on the tour where given special treatment, even making them Virgin Mojitos when at the fab Cuban restaurant. We will be visiting each and every restaurant again, and will take another tour in the near future. Thank you!!!"
