For such a small village, Rhinebeck offers a diverse palate of cuisine with warm shops and cozy taverns inviting you in to experience delectable and savory specialties. Not to be overlooked is the history and culture in Rhinebeck sometimes nicknamed the Hamptons of the Hudson Valley. This is a small group walking tour of the village of Rhinebeck. We meet in the center of it all tasting and touring. The walk is not strenuous and includes approximately .5 miles of easy terrain. Your guide will introduce you to the historic and edible side with sites, shops, and eateries. The day includes 5-7 tasting locations with three being paired the with a cocktail, glass of wine or artisanal beer. Think seasonal, beautiful bites with a paired sip. Some of the stops may include the oldest inn in the U.S., Beekman Arms, the Amsterdam known for their house made charcuterie, and a local sweet shop. This guided walk is 3-hours and 30-minutes to 4-hours and starts in front of the Amsterdam 6380 Mill Street Rhinebeck, NY.

I like giving guests a 20th century perspective and blending the history of the region, local lore, and experiences that sets it apart.
