I was late and the guide Jenny did an excellent job of making sure I showed up. Overall this was an excellent food tour and would highly recommend it to anyone who is passionate about food and beer.

Lanie was a natural as a guide, while we ate our way through Providence, Rhode Island. She clearly has good rapport with the restaurants we frequented and easily established relationships within our group of foodies, who began to feel like kinfolk by the end of the tour. We especially appreciated the decision to visit Kin, a black-owned southern food gem. The Providence food scene does not disappoint.
