Full description

Sample Southern comfort food in a Prohibition-era bar, where John F. Kennedy proposed to Jackie Bouvier, sip tea near a canal once used to transport goods to the West and taste socially-conscious street food that helps feed refugees. Once a thriving port town, Georgetown is D.C.’s oldest neighborhood and still reveals glimpses of mule-drawn boats and flour mills. Discover Georgetown’s cosmopolitan past, where people from every continent and many religions lived together and built an eclectic culinary community. If you listen closely, you’ll hear melodies from one of the oldest jazz clubs in the country or feel the chill from the spookiest stairs ever used in film history. More than just a premier shopping destination, Georgetown has a delicious and culturally diverse history that might surprise you. A portion of your ticket will be donated to Bread for the City, a local charity that provides DC locals living in poverty with food, clothing, and medical and legal services.

Our guide Anne was excellent! She taught us some Georgetown history while feeding us local based foods. My favorite was the scrumptious falafel and second favorite was a tie between the crème brûlée and meatloaf with a mushroom sauce. Interesting history hearing about Mary Meyer, teacher Mary and visiting the various Kennedy ex-residences. Overall, a fantastic day, thanks to Anne. The weather also cooperated, lol. This is a must do tour

This was great. Good info, really good food. Loved that there was a story behind every good food place, and that they have a mission to help people. My only complaint is that it was advertised as a 3 hour tour, and it ended about 2 hr 15 min. Also, the last 2 food stops were back to back and because of the shorter timeline it was a lot of food fast. But delicious!

since the first restaurant was not known before the start of the your better direction on where to find the guide; it is in the alley? or at the top of the street..etc.; should be explained that not all restaurants are "sit" down; how to advise of allergies -special requests etc.
