Great Food Tour

"Joined family from out of town on this food tour of Old Town Alexandria. We benefited from great weather--perfect for the experience--and had enjoyable walk through old town. Stopping at five sites for food/beverage (good beer in my case!), and hearing about the history of many interesting sites such as Christchurch, Carlyle House, Torpedo Factory, etc. It's a great way to introduce yourself to a city or to enjoy time with family. Great job by the guide Zach as well; informative and engaging. I'll look into other DC Food Tour experiences."

Delightful day learning about Alexandria and sampling a really delicious variety of food!

"We truly enjoyed our tour with Mary! As we walked around Old Town, we learned a lot of interesting info about the history of the area, and of each restaurant that we visited. The food tastings were quite varied and each was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the Meggrolls and the breakfast biscuit, and the gourmet deviled eggs and....really everything. This would be a great experience for visitors to DC as well as folks who live there."

An Amazing and fun Experience!

"What a fun day!! This was the highlight of our trip. Great way to see the city, learn some history, and have some delicious food! Our favorite food stops were the fried chicken and waffles and the deviled eggs. Mary was such a fun tour guide and helped make the food and city come alive. I would recommend this to anyone- you can’t miss this experience!"
