We purchased the ultimate capitol hill pub crawl tour. It was $87 per person. They told us it was customizable and we would drink following the guide telling us "the stories of that location and of those nearby." Our guide, Chris, gave us zero information on the locations or any locations nearby. There was no historical information, no information at... More

I chose the Georgetown tour first off, because it matched my limited schedule time in DC, and secondly because that is an area of DC I was unfamiliar with and was excited to hear about some of the area's past. There were five people on the tour + the guide. The food stops were good and the guide was very... More

We have been on tours before but this was our first food tour. We signed up for the Georgetown tour. We were very excited to go to the restaurants and learn some things about Georgetown. Unfortunately, we were so disappointed in the lack of knowledge and enthusiasm in our guide, as well at the selection of food. Our guide was... More

We often take food/restaurant tours when we travel. Mostly, they are really good. This tour of Georgetown was no exception. Our guide, Kayla, was friendly and engaged with our group of sixteen. She was organized and on-time and gave us a nice history of Georgetown. She made each of us feel welcome. Despite doing many, many of these tours, her... More

we went on the Georgetown tour and it was a positive experience but not excellent. I'd say it rates as 3 to 4 stars but will go with 4 because there were very nice people on the tour who added to the experience. Tour guide was very nice but had more facts than charisma. If it hadn't been fir the... More

My wife and I just went on our second DC Metro Food tour this past weekend. We had such a fantastic time on the first one (Pub Crawl Tour) that we signed up for the Dupont Circle Food Tour. In both instances we had a great time and our guide (Leah) really made the tours for us. We'd highly recommend... More

I arranged with DC Metro Food Tours a special birthday tour for ten friends and family. We went to the U Street/Shaw neighborhood and it was just fantastic. Our guide, Chris, was personable and knew the area well. The combination of Ethiopian, Southern, Italian and a neighborhood gem was just perfect. We did the drink pairings and they went perfectly...

4 gals went on food tour of Georgetown and loved the food offerings and our guide Sean. The amount of the food we received at each stop, 3 restaurants and one bakery, was more than we bargained for. Large portions of soup and chaucuterie, neatballs and pasta, crepes served with chardonnay and finally 2 sweet bites. We felt like we... More

Genius. Food, history and a little walk-about! This tour falls into the category of "why didn't I think of that"?! Jen, our guide for the Capitol Hill tour, started us off with interesting background about the Barracks Row a area. Like a good guide, she tells the history through stories. And just when we started to need a break, we... More

A fun and informative time. We try and do "ghost walks" at most places we visit because the history is so detailed, the dining was excellent and efficient. Terry was a fantastic guide, did a great job of understanding what we were there for and added "just enough cheese" to make it entertaining. A really cool way to get some... More
