My fiancé and I had a great experience! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information about the area. He was super flexible and was able to find great spots for us to check out, even though a lot of restaurants were closed due to the pandemic. I would definitely recommend checking out this tour while in DC.

The guide was excellent and gave a history of the neighborhood as well as the food. Walking was minimal. I do think it was a little pricey compared to other food tours we have taken given the amount of food we were tasting.

This tour was great from the beginning to the end. My wife and I met Alina and we were the only ones in our group. She was very personable and knowledgeable. We enjoyed all the restaurants, street art and history. This was the one of the highlights to our trip to WDC.

My sister and I were disappointed in the tour. The guide was nice but the choice of foods was not good a mini chili dog with fries smothered in chili and cheese sauce, Ethiopian food, a small kale salad at a market store, a bite of Quinoa ball for desert and sample size of chai tea. I feel like food tours are intended to show you the local places that tourists do not know about with amazing food that will make you want to come back to visit the next time your in town. We went to four stops and I will not visit any of them when I come back to DC. In fact, we left hungry and unsatisfied. This tour was not worth the money. I have been on numerous food tours all over the United States and for 131.40, this one is at the bottom of my list.
