My husband and I did this activity for our 22nd anniversary. I surprised him with this food and walking tour and during the tour he commented that I had made an excellent choice! It turned out we were the only ones on the tour that time which actually was really fun. Our guide Simone was amazing, very personable, very knowledgeable and we had an immensely memorable fun experience! And the food was amazing!! I even ate vegetables and loved them! We will absolutely be sharing this opportunity with friends and family and suggesting that they take advantage of this experience as well!

This experience provided intimate details of Fells Point and early Baltimore history, along with delicious food from an exciting variety of restaurants, pubs, and markets. I enjoyed that the pacing of the event allowed for enough time to walk off the food, while also not providing an overwhelming amount of information between stops. I can't say enough positive things about our tour guide Simone, who was knowledgeable, friendly, and went above and beyond to create an inclusive environment for everyone to be comfortable and get to know the other people on our tour.

Highly recommend this tour. The tour guides were so lovely and attentive to our needs. We were running late but they easily accommodated us. One recommendation from us if you are doing the tour is DO NOT EAT beforehand! The portions the restaurants give are pretty reasonable. We enjoyed learning more about Baltimore and eating from various places at Falls Point.
