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 different - this is it.

We loved our tour. We wandered old town Alexandria, heard a bit of history ... and ate a great meal spread out in four restaurants (table service, no stand up service). The restaurants change often (by design). The best was in an old firehouse and we were served seared scallops on a bed of "Israeli Couscous Risotto". Yummmm! The tour is limited to 11, and lasts 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Well worth doing!

I treated my family to a tour of Old Town Alexandria, and it was a perfect afternoon outing. If you're looking for something different to get out and about while in the DC area, this is a worth while attraction, showcasing such a beautiful part of N. Virgina. I'm hopeful to try some of the other neighborhood tours they offer, and I'll be looking for similar tours in other cities!

Ada was a fantastic guide, providing us a great background on the history of Alexandria. Spent just the right amount of time in each restaurant. The managers at Virtue Feed and Grain truly made us feel welcome and informed about their restaurant and the background on our drinks and food. Would highly recommend. We can't wait to try another neighorhood.

Went on the Gastronomical Georgetown tour, and it was fine. Met some very nice people on the tour which made it a plus. Otherwise it was sort of catered to a hipster crowd which can be a bit of a turn off. Food was decent, the last stop "Baked and Wired" was busy and a bit full of itself.
