"Our group was small but it made for a better experience. Colin was an amazing tour guide. I grew up in New Haven when I was younger, so to learn about the history as an adult was great. The food and the cocktails at the locations were well-made and tasted delicious. The locations did not skimp on the food. I live in Hartford so it was great to find out about the restaurants that we experienced, so that I can venture back down to the Elm City to enjoy the adult night life. The Cuban rum bar (Zafra) was my favorite stop on the tour. The atmosphere and the food were spot on. This was our anniversary date, and I would definitely recommend the tour via Cloud 9 Living to my network. I heard great things about the pizza cooking class that a couple (who accompanied us) experienced. I hope to book that one when available. Kudos to Colin!!!"

"Despite being in a group of strangers, my husband and I genuinely felt like part of a big family. The tour guide was not only knowledgeable and friendly, but knew how to make sure that no one was left out at any time. As someone new to Connecticut, this experience was a great opportunity to get to know New Haven in a way that only locals can, and I am excited to try another tour as soon as the weather gets better! Thank you for a memorable day."
