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.
