Went on the Carpe DC Food Tour with a few work colleagues to celebrate a milestone. We had Laura as our guide and she was fantastic. Great way to bond and eat some great food!

This was a fantastic walking tour! Laura was a great tour guide. We stopped at five different places and all of them were delicious. Do not eat a big breakfast before you go on this tour! The information provided about Georgetown was really interesting too!...More

Loved the tour. The food was delicious, and I had enough leftovers for later. Our tour guide, Dannel was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area. It was a super tour and exactly what I had hoped for!

Amazing food, amazing history. Went with my friend who had a severe dairy and gluten allergy, and they got to eat at every stop due to diligence and attention to detail of the tour guide!

Our guide was very nice and informative, food was authentic and tasty. We went to 4 different restaurants, the Ethiopian restaurant was my favorite. I wouldn’t do the beer and wine tasting again, it wasn’t worth the extra money.

We had arranged for a U-Street tour for our group of 40 hand-picked scholars while we were touring Washington, D.C. They accommodated our group splendidly. We split our group into two smaller groups and each had their own tour guide. Each group went to the...More

Stefan was our tour guide and he walked us around Georgetown for 3 hours. He took us to five food stops and intermixed the local history of the Georgetown in between. We stopped at a doughnut place, a middle eastern fast-casual place, a local tavern,...More

Unfortunately, I was really looking forward to this U Street tour. I was expecting a small selection of delicious, well-prepared samples. Instead, we got food that just seemed/tasted ordinary, for the most part. For example, we got a side dish of pasta salad to share...More
