Great food paired with good company

"This was AMAZING!!! Scott was our tour guide and he was awesome! Never a dull moment, packed with educational facts along the way- hands down one of the best food tours we have ever experienced! I would definitely recommend to a friend or family member. If you’re fortunate enough to have Scott show you around then you’re in for a treat."

"This is the best food tour I've experienced. Our tour guide, Scott, was personable, knowledgable, and a lot of fun. Even more, he had an obvious love for the community that shone through at every stop. And the food was delicious, too. If you're interested in truly learning about the fascinating history and culture of DC, you will love this tour."

Amazing Tour!

"This was by far the best food tour I’ve been on. Scott was SUCH a fantastic guide! Our travel agent surprised us with this booking, so we had no idea what to expect before we showed up - but everything was perfect. The portions and variety of food were ideal and delicious, we learned a good amount of history, saw some gorgeous murals - and left with a love for a neighborhood we’d never even heard of before. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Book it immediately!"
