I have loved living in Winchester for the past fifteen years, but today, I fell in love with it all over again! We did the food and history tour given by Misty and Anthony, a dynamic duo! We immensely enjoyed being in their company and all the amazing food and history that they presented to us. They have wonderful relationships with the owners of the restaurants, who personally gave us beautiful presentations of their food and history of their restaurants. We felt so welcomed by everyone we met and made to feel like part for he community. We are looking forward to taking other tours that you are working on. Thank you so much for all the time and love you have invested in this little town we call home;)

We had such a good time touring with Anthony and Misty on a rainy Sunday afternoon doing the History & Hops tour! We stopped at four places, and learned about the breweries, the beer, and a bit of Winchester history as well. They had a good relationship with each of the establishments and really catered to us in every way - from recommending beers to our palettes, taking our orders, and cleaning up afterwards, it was really above and beyond what you would expect from your tour guides. They are great conversationalists who will feel more like fast friends by the time your tour has ended. We will definitely try the Food tour that they offer the next time we are in Winchester for the holidays!
