We did the Canal Tour the first weekend of June. It was beautiful day to walk around. Our tour guide Farah was very nice and knowledgeable - I have been to New Haven many times and she took us around to many places I have never been before and told us about the interesting history of the city and many of the buildings. The food was great and I was stuffed by the end of it. The absolute highlight was the pulled pork sandwich at Zafra's, the Cuban restaurant. It was amazing. Also great was the little cheese shop they took us to, Caseus. We tried some samples of sheep's milk cheese, machego(?), that was excellent. I bought a half pound on the spot. The frozen yogurt/Gelato hybrid at Pure Health Lounge was delicous. Everything was good, but those were my favorites. I was too stuffed by the end too really enjoy the food at Anna Liffey’s, but I was really impressed by the ambience there and would definitely go back for some Irish food and a Guiness. Overall, considering the amount of food and all the new places you learn about, this tour is a great value. My wife and I learned alot about where to go in New Haven (Farah also gave us some tips on where to go for Sushi, Thai, etc.), so now when we go out in New Haven, we go to some different places besides getting pizza every time.
