We moved to Alexandria about a year ago and finally had a chance to do the food tour. We learned so much about the city, the history, and we got to try really good food.
The tour was historically informative, fun, the food was delicious and were great portions! I would definitely recommend!
I enjoyed the information provided. The guide was friendly and informative. The food was wonderful as well.
Michael, our tour guide, was excellent. He not only gave us a very interesting and entertaining history of Old a Town, but he was able to bring our group of 12 together so we could enjoy their company while also enjoying the food at the well-chosen restaurants. A great afternoon and one we'll definitely repeat in other cities.
Great tour! Delicious food, fun historical facts, great guide
I wish we knew how long the tour would be. Also, the second restaurant didn’t have a great vegetarian option for the value we paid. Others got fish, we got veggies. I would have hopped for a more creative option worth the value. Otherwise lots of great history and stories during the tour. And really loved the setting of the restaurants that were picked.
Pablo was an excellent guide, informative and fun to spend the afternoon with. Loved our restaurants and the food was outstanding.
Tour guide was great and so were the restaurants. Was very nice learning about the history of the town and periodically stopping to have some great food. Would do again with a friend or try another DC food tour.
I didn’t expect foreign food on a tour of an historic old town.
Loved Jennifer! Great mix of food and history😀

It was more than we expected in both the historical tidbits and the variety of the food selections. It has spurred us to check out some of the other local food tour options (DC and Annapolis).
Great tour to get a history of Alexandria and tour of the eating establishments there.
Was not impressed with the food at the last 2 stops.
Our guide Pablo was very knowledgeable, funny and pleasant, our diverse group of 14 was very interactive and from multiple places like New Zealand, Pittsburgh, Rochester, Buffalo which led to interesting conversations, it was a good mix of walking the very crowded center of Old Town where many artists were showing there wares, and 4 visits to restaurants to relax and taste the food ( Italian, Lebanese
My mother in law and her sister from Washington State can't quit telling everyone about their tour of Old Town Alexandria, the food was great and the stories were so informative.
