We went on the Gastronomic Georgetown Food Tour. Our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgable about the area we visited. However, The food and overall dining experience was somewhat of a disappointment. The first place we visited was J. Paul's. The table we were shown to needed to be cleaned before we could sit down. We were served lump... More

The food, tour guide and others on our tour were great. It was a lot of fun. We took the 3:00 tour and didn't need dinner that night. We wish we could have had more history on the tour.

Did the Gastronomic Georgetown food tour and had a great time. All the food was really good and our guide shared a great mix of stories, history and tips about the local area.

I was not very familiar with Ethiopian food so I thought taking a tour might be a good introduction. It was great. We met our guide at the U Street Station, learned some history of the Ethiopian people in DC, and then we ate… and ate… and ate! The food was wonderful. Our guide, Chris, had lots of in-depth knowledge... More

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
