What a great experience; the whole day flew by! Natalia was incredibly knowledgable about the area, and took us to a ton of locations all around NW Vermont. She was very thoughtful in making sure that everyone on the tour had enough time at each of the stops, and that we were well fed :) I'd definitely recommend this experience to anyone who loves food and the beautiful Vermont scenery!

Natalia was great. If you’re in the area and want a really great tour of all Vermont has to offer, this is the place to start. If you’re not a local, I highly recommend this tour.

This was a fun and engaging tour! My boyfriend and I happened to be the only two on the tour. The level of interaction was more reminiscent of a friendship than that of a "tour guide" which we were very pleased with. All of our questions were answered, we laughed and learned. It was a great experience!

We were fortunate to end up having a private tour with Natalia. She is lively and funny with a strong passion for Vermont. She was full of knowledge and entertaining stories. We were able to see and learn things that we wouldn't have if we went on our own. When we come back we definitely take another tour with Natalia.
