"Joshua was a great guide, full of knowledge and happy to expand on any topic that we touched on. He had organized 8 stops I think, each of which included a sample or two of locally produced foods/drinks. It was a freezing January day in NY. We didn't notice it with the constant flow of information and the stops. Time very well spent. Thank you."

"Food was delicious. If I had to suggest, I would say more of a mix of sweet and savory tastings...too many sweets when it's recommended to not eat lunch before arriving. Otherwise, the guide was knowledgeable and engaging, as well as friendly and fun."
