Fun Food Tour - Wanted to do something fun with my college aged foodie daughter home from school over spring break. We both thoroughly enjoyed our food tour! Interesting facts about the history of Georgetown and most importantly delicious food. Love that they have partnered with restaurants that provide meals to those in need.

Good but not great - Tour included both local history and local food establishments. It was fine, but the choice of the food items was not quite up to what we have had on other Viator food tours.

Great food, but lacking in history. - Most of the food was outstanding. The scones, pizza and creme brulee were amazing. Pizza from Canale and the creme brulee were the standouts. We even went back to Canale for dinner that evening. Did not have enough room to enjoy the falafel. Would suggest something lighter before eating creme brulee. Food excellent, but the history was lacking. My son was really looking forward to going to the Exorcist Steps on the tour as well as more history about Georgetown. Maybe going to well know people that lived in Georgetown.
