About
Once a thriving port town, Georgetown is DC’s oldest neighborhood and still reveals glimpses of mule-drawn boats and flour mills. Discover Georgetown's cosmopolitan past, where people from every continent and many religions lived together and built an eclectic culinary community. More than just a premier shopping destination, Georgetown has a delicious and culturally-diverse history. The tour will stop at several restaurants during the three-hour tour. Between food tastings, your guide will stop and share the unique history of the Georgetown neighborhood along the way. We provide more than just a sampling of random delicious bites; our guides use the tastings we offer to help tell the story of the neighborhood that you explore with us. This is a small-group tour of no more than 8. A portion of each ticket sale is donated to Bread For The City, an organization who provides food, clothing, medical care, and legal and social services to reduce the burden of poverty for DC residents.

Overpriced food tour!
The tour guide was friendly and enthusiastic- and walk was interesting. But food was less than I expected. Maybe street food or snacks would be a better description. For money charged I thought not a good value. Frankly I was disappointed.

Thank you for your feedback, Pamela. While it is true we may not be as competitively priced as other tours in the area, we are the only food tour that allots a portion of each ticket price towards covering the cost of a person in need’s food for a day thanks to our association with local non-profit, Bread for the City. Also, our company pays full price for our tastings and makes sure to tip the service staff 20% during each visit. We curate each of our tours so that we can tell the story of the neighborhood through its rich flavors - and in Georgetown, we work with partners who are award winning and change makers in the community. We’re glad you appreciated your guide’s enthusiasm as she brings that much passion to feeding not only the guests on her tours, but the community at large.

Monsoon Food Tour
A little rain won’t stop this phenomenal food tour! Well planned out from start to finish. A fascinating historical walk with a pleasing Georgetown aesthetic. The food variety was amazing & satisfying. Stephan, our tour guide, co-owner & co-creator was a true gem! A great person to spend an afternoon with. Ready for the next!

Oh wow! We're glad you had fun despite what sounds like challenging weather! Thank you for taking the time to review us, as well as giving us 5-stars. I'm a bit biased, but I think my husband, Stefan, is quite a gem as well! Forgive me though...as Stefan and I have been working hard to make sure that we're operating safely, I have not received to our recent reviews (and this year 3 months has felt like 3 years)! I really appreciate your kind words and we'll look forward to hosting you again. :)

Tasty food and interesting history, all for a good cause
Aug 2020
Really enjoyed this tour - the food was great (definitely filling) and we got to know a little about each restaurant and its owners. I was glad to hear that each restaurant was compensated appropriately and that the tour company also supports local residents in need. I've spent a fair amount of time in Georgetown, but never knew much about its history until this tour! I now have a few new go-to spots for delicious food and a great tour to recommend to friends and family.

How wonderful! It's sounds like you're a local - thanks for joining us and we're so thrilled that you learned a bit more about a neighborhood that you were already familiar with and that we introduced you to some new spots. :) Yes, we pride ourselves on being a small business that supports small business; thank you for mentioning that and for appreciating that - we pay our restaurant partners full price for our tastings and we tip their servers 20%; we also provide 3 meals for a local resident with each ticket sale. I must apologize for the delay in responding however! We've been so focused on adjusting and operating safely that I did not realize that we'd had reviews come in. Forgive me! We hope to see you on another neighborhood tour soon!

Terrific Tour!
Nov 2019
There was only my friend and I on the tour with David. He was a terrific guide and, in the end, friend. He had many interesting historical facts to relate to us as we walked through Georgetown. The food stops were fabulous and we liked that they were smaller but thriving places with interesting - and often ethnic - food choices. We had a stunning weather day with blue sky overhead and bright yellow leaves underfoot. David took excellent care of us, always watching out for our safety and comfort. We were very lucky to only be the two of us gals with our engaging and enthusiastic guide. He was patient while I grabbed a few street photos along the way. This tour was exactly what we wanted - a historical walking tour with yummy food (and a beer!) along the way. I want to add that, as non residents, we had a difficult time finding Cady's Alley and our GPS wasn't very helpful. District Donuts is a good location but we only found it by asking some locals for help. Maybe it was just us and it doesn't detract from our experience or review.

Hi Axelant~ I'm so glad that you enjoyed your "private" tour with David in Georgetown! I'm sorry that you had trouble finding Cady's Alley. Honestly, you're not the first to say this and we've recently added a few more details to our voucher from TripAdvisor in order to help our guests find it more easily. I'm glad it didn't detract from your experience. :) ~Mary

Such an interesting way to tour Georgetown; our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. Breaking up the tour with delicious food is such a great idea. We had falafel, banh mi, and wonderful French pastries among other treats.
Highly recommend!
