Colleen was our tour guide and very knowledgable. Each and every stop along the way we were treated to such wonderful food. Colleen explained about each beautiful historical building and in particular she explained about the beautiful architecture of The Library. Plan absolutely to take another one of the tours they offer.

Colleen did a nice job as our tour guide. We visited The Library first which was a gorgeous restaurant with dark paneling and shelves. The taste was of their Bang Bang shrimp which reminded me a lot of my late sister's favorite bang bang chicken at the Cheesecake Factory. The shrimp was very good - crispy and just enough spice...

We took the Portsmouth-Eats seafood tasting tour, as an activity offered from our resort. I was very satisfied with it- five plus stops at really cool spots with delicious food offerings. The tour operator, Colleen, was personable, knowledgeable and genuine. She loved her city and knew her food spots well. It was a lot of fun. Well recommended.

there was plenty of food during the tour and we loved that we got to sit and chat at each destination - and have water as it was a hot day! It was appreciative that our guide was flexible and was in no rush to finish the tour up! Our guide was knowledgeable and added much to the conversations! We... More

My friend and I approached Portsmouth Eats as an easy introduction to some of the best restaurants in Portsmouth. The tour was all of that and more but we also really appreciated the historical information presented by our guide for a most interesting city. The highlight for me was the New England chowder at the River House after an introduction... More
