Andrew was a great tour guide today. He organized games appropriate for the event, which happened to be a bachelorette party. Also, he was excited to do a tour during the day, something that is slightly unusual! We went to four bars, each had specials. All of the ladies had a great time! Thank you Andrew for being a fun...

Our tour guide gave us a steady dose of history, interesting tidbits, and answered questions as we strolled from venue to venue. We did the Capital Hill tour. The food was tasty, diverse, and plentiful. We had time to order extra drinks and walking through areas and neighborhoods I wouldn't otherwise had known about gave us an "insiders" view while...

We spent one afternoon on this tour. The firehouse was very good. The tea store was great. and the desert place was good. The first place we stopped serve MAC & CHEESE. Everyone on the tour loved the Mac &Cheese, I do not care for any noodle dish so my husband ate mine.

My wife and I weren't all that impressed with this tour. I felt the tour didn't go into enough about the area and some of the food was mediocre. We visited the four following restaurants on the tour: Union Street Public House - Here we were offered a small mac and cheese dish and a small beer. The dish was... More

My husband and I did the Old Town Alexandria tour on our honeymoon and we LOVED it! We met the tour guides, Chris and Trevor (Trevor was training) in Market Square. They seeked us out as we were waiting for them. There was a total of six in our group, plus Chris and Trevor. We walked around town in areas... More

We did the Historic Old Town Alexandria Food Tour, and it was great! Our guide (Lynn) was super!! We did four restaurants, with a wide mix of flavors and types of food. The portions are just right to get plenty to taste, but not leave you stuffed and miserable. You start with a tasty appetizer, walk to another restaurant for... More

Good mixture of historical and food tour. Well organised and very good guide. Restaurants well chosen and food very good. Especially enjoyed the cocktail at the first restaurant. And the scallops at the second. While the Lebanese restaurant was perfectly OK thought it did not fit in with the historical theme. The jelly cake was surprisingly good.

We really should have tried this earlier in our vacation, as we had a really nice time! We took the Old Town Alexandria Food Tour. We walked all around Old Town Alexandria. Our guide, Leslie, was extremely knowledgeable. There were 10 of us in the tour, some locals, others not. The locals said they learned some new facts about Alexandria... More

My son treated me to a wonderful food tour in Old Alexandria. We covered an area of about a square mile and learned so much about the history of the area and the times. We walked to four very different restaurants. The food in each restaurant was delicious. They were each set up with a long table set just for... More

What a great way for me and my out of town guests to experience the food and history of Capital Hill. The food was fantastic and plentiful. We tried 3 different cuisines. I really enjoyed learning some new things about the area - both about the history and the architecture. Chris was engaging and knowledgable. If you're looking for something... More
