    positive review  I'm a little biased because I am one of the guides, but I am giving this rating just to let everybody know how wonderful our tour stop hosts are. The owners, the chefs, the cooks, the staff are all very knowledgeable and engaging, the food is wonderful, and we have as enjoyable a time as our guests. So please do feel free to join us and experience what our business owners have to offer both locals and visitors. And as always we thank you all for your patronage.

    positive review  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!

What should I wear?
We will be indoors for most of the tour but will be walking outside to get to the next destination and for quick historical and architectural stops, so please wear clothes appropriate for the weather, and bring an umbrella if rain is in the forecast.
Is this tour good for local Winchester residents?
Absolutely! We tend to find that the closer we live to something the less we explore! Locals will learn new things, and our restaurants often offer new menu items to our guests.
