    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 is such a personal tour and the small group made it so great. I loved the shops and the foods we were able to sample. It was well worth the experience.

    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.

    Fantastic tour of a great cultural area. Laura, our tour guide was fabulous in giving us a wealth of background information for each neighborhood. The food was plentiful and full of flavor and represented different ethnic backgrounds. The wall murals were outstaning...a must see! I strongly recommend that you book this tour.
