We had the best tour guide, he is very knowledgable about the history and is proud to share what he know. The food choices on the tour are incredible. Whether vegetarian or a meat lover at heart, there is more than enough to keep everyone full (arrive hungry).

I enjoyed all the restaurants our group visited and our guide, Terry, was spectacular. He was extremely knowledgeable about the historical background to the area. Also, he was great at keeping conversation going among our group. All members mixed and mingled and had opportunities to get to know each other. What a great chance to learn about the area and meet other people, as well as share many tasty dishes. I will definitely recommend this tour to friends and look forward to my next visit to DC so I can try another itinerary. Oh, and by the way, you won't leave this tour hungry!

This was my first food tour and everyone in the group had a great time. It was a small group (just 7) which made it even better. Terry was top notch with his providing so much info about Alexandria history and about local restaurants. Conversation among the group was stimulating and constant. We were not rushed to "finish our food and move on" at any restaurant stop. The food was delicious, varied, and quite filling. The last stop for dessert was okay, but not great. My dessert was not good. Would probably delete Society Fair on South Washington St. The amount of walking required was just right for me and my friends. One elderly person thought it a bit much, but did fine. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Terry gave of his time and knowledge above and beyond what was, I'm sure, required. Couldn't have had a better experience. Will plan to participate in many more such tours. Thank you.

My wife and I have been on several food tours in a number of different cities and this one ranks among the most enjoyable. The four different restaurants offered a variety of cuisines (Italian, southern, Lebanese, dessert) which were all excellent. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of Alexandria history and made sure to point out lots of interesting tidbits about the buildings and areas we passed. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

We had a great time on our tour with Terry Gish - he was very personable and gave a great little history lesson to go along with our restaurant stops. The only down side for us was The Pita place - as we are used to very good Lebanese cuisine where we are from, and this place just doesn't measure up. You may want to consider replacing that stop with Eamons, the Dubliner Fish & Chips joint, which is fantastic.

My fiance and I had a wonderful time on the Historic Old Town Alexandria Food Tour. We were a huge fan of just how much historical background we were able to get on Old Town Alexandria while stopping for great food at local spots. Every choice was delicious and my fiance was offered a great vegetarian substitute when the situation arose (our guide arranged the switch in advance so there was no lapse for any guest!). We found that this tour was one of the most bang-for-your-buck expenses that we made on our trip to Washington D.C. and would be excited to try another location upon a return trip!

We had a small group, 6 total, which was the perfect number for walking around and hearing our guide, Pablo. The weather created a slight deterrent for a short period, but Pablo made it work! The restaurant choices were exceptional, the food was phenomenal and the knowledge and stories Pablo provided were amazing. I loved the scenery - the history of the buildings, the cobblestone streets, the sense of wonderment in the air was exhilarating. I can't wait to go on another food walking tour the next time I am on vacation! It is a must experience for any traveler.

This was my first food "tour" and as a local, I was skeptical about how much I would really learn. The answer is -- surprisingly a lot! We went to restaurants that were well-known but not the "hottest," so there is a chance you (like me) haven't visited them yet. Additionally, all of the restaurants had some sort of historical significance. Our guide, Eric, was a font of information on just about every subject. It's worth the cost!

It turnout to be a private tour with our guide Eric as we walked the historic streets of Old Town Alexandria due to some cancellations but the trip went on as scheduled. He shared a lot of interesting history along with surprising and delicious culinary treats at four very different restaurants: wonderful Northern Italian style ravioli at Landini Brothers, Tender ribs and to die for fried green tomatoes at Overwood Wood-Fired American Kitchen, Flounder with risotto at The Firehouse and desserts of our choice at the Society Fair. It was a very memorable day with a wonderful guide Eric.

Jennifer was very knowledgeable and personable. We (my best friend and I) ended up being the only 2 on the tour, so we we enjoyed the personal tour :) The restaurants we visited were quaint and foods were very pleasing. We enjoyed the rich history and culture Alexandria had to offer. The walking distance and amounts of foods were balanced out evenly. We weren't sure how much walking or how much foods to expect, but were weren't overly overwhelmed or disappointed in both aspects. We both extremely enjoyed the last stop at the bakery, as we were able to sit and enjoy our treats and wind down. For the price of the tour, I think it was a great bargain. We would definitely recommend to others.

I bought this history tour/food outing as a surprise birthday present for my mom. We had an interesting, not too big group of people and an awesome tour guide. She even tried to help me arrange a little birthday treat for my mom. Guide was very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and fun to be with.

We had a birthday girl with us who was offered a complementary glass of processco. Nice touch. I was so content at the end I neglected to tip my guide, please forgive my poor manners!

I really enjoyed our Old Town Alexandria food tour. Our guide, Pablo, was knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. I thought highly of the few restaurants that were chosen and would possibly visit there again if ever back in the area. The only thing I didn't like was the small number of stops on the tour. I've been on multiple food tours in many different cities and the typical number of stops ranges from 6-8 places. I felt like stopping at only 4 places for the price of $60 per person was little bit of a rip off personally, although I did enjoy the places we visited. I doubt I'd try any of the other DC Metro food tour stops now knowing how few places you actually get to try. There are an abundance of restaurants in Old Town and to only get to try four of them was a disappointment. This should not speak ill of Pablo in any way however as he was an excellent guide and I appreciated his knowledge of the area!

Good variety of places to taste plus history.

Only complaint would be the choice of the last place for dessert. Not historic and not great. We were td we had a choice of sweets but only up to $5 vie. All the cakes were $7 so we had to pay the extra $2 for a slice. Don't nickel and dime us. We just paid $60 so another $2 seems silly to have to fork over. Find an historic dessert location. Not where we were offered.

We enjoyed a Sunday afternoon food tour of Old Town Alexandria with Eric as our guide. We was very knowledgeable about the dishes we experienced and the area. Our tour included 3 entrees and one dessert. We enjoyed Italian at Landini Brothers, amazing BBQ ribs from Overwood, fried catfish and succotash from Columbia Firehouse, and sweet treats from Society Fair. Overwood was our absolute favorite. I have a gluten allergy and another gentlemen had a dairy allergy. We both were accommodated no problem. I do recommend including that in your notes when you purchase tickets. I really appreciated Zerve's in depth directions to get to the location, parking, and meeting location. We are locals that had never been there before and it was a great experience. Restrooms and alcoholic beverages/tea/coffee were available for purchase at all locations. If you have a large party I would recommend booking a private outing tailored to your group! We will definitely be doing another location soon!

We were 2 out of towners and a local -- and both groups enjoyed the tour.

My tour included four local restaurants in Alexandria, as well as some historical stops as we walked from restaurant to restaurant. I would be willing to try some of the other local food tours in the DC area on another trip.

The best restaurant stop was the last, and not because it was the dessert stop! Rather, because the MANAGER TOOK AN INTEREST in our visit. Now, i admit this was 100% required by the fact that we had choices from the many selections. But still, at the other three stops, had anyone but the wait staff introduced themselves and welcomed us, this tour would have been "Enthusiastically Recommended."

Even the first stop with the unremarkable house made spinach-ricotta ravioli with the garlic Alfredo sauce would have been so much better, had the manager/host/owner stopped at the table and said "Welcome to our establishment, we are a third generation Italian restaurant. My grandparents came to Alexandria in 19?? and opened the first restaurant with Nonna in the kitchen and Nonno doing the front of house at the lunch counter. Welcome and enjoy your pasta course." - anything would have been better than nothing.

I took my husband and father on the Old Town tour as a late Father's Day gift. They are both "foodies" and thought it was a great idea! We had a good time with Pablo as our guide. We were on the tour with some other people - a mother and daughter, and then 2 guides that were shadowing Pablo. We met at the Market Square. This is my only suggestion I think the guides should be given shirts/jackets that would make them distinctive and easier to locate other than the small buttons that they wear. Pablo was very friendly and knowledgeable about Old Town and Alexandria. The shadowing guide, named Eric, who I think leads some of the Georgetown tours, was informative as well. Since they were so enthusiastic to share what they have learned, it made the historical piece of the tour enjoyable. We made about 4 food stops on the way that included a pasta dish, fried green tomatoes, ribs with coleslaw, a catfish dish at a brewery, and then a pleasant choice of dessert. It was neat to try some places that are tucked away from King Street. I would highly recommend trying something new if you have never been on one of these tours!

It's a fun way for international travelers to delve into the local culture. The only annoying thing about it was that they sat us all at the same table at one particular restaurant, and we were the only people there!

Can't say enough good things about this 3 and a half hour tour. Got to see wonderful examples of historical architecture; learned about key events in Alexandria's history -- maybe sounds boring if you are not a history buff (and I am not one!) but coupling a focused tour with the chance to try four different wonderful restaurants -- which gave us a sense of current Alexandria vibe -- was really fun. Above all, Pablo, our tour guide, absolutely made this tour great!!! So glad we took the time and I would definitely recommend.

Our guide was excellent; on time and interesting, although she did not present as much history as a similar tour in Georgetown. The first three restaurants were all outstanding--great food and service. The last stop (dessert) at Bittersweet was a disappointment; the cake served was "not worth the calories" and the service was only adequate. Paper plates and cups and a plastic fork made this a "fast food" stop that left our group with a less than first-rate impression at the end. Nonetheless, overall, this was an excellent food tour which I would recommend to my friends and would do again with visitors. Thanks!

My wife and I were in Alexandria for our 5 year anniversary and looking for something fun and active to do. We both love getting to know more about the place we are visiting since we feel this really helps you appreciated it more! In addition vacationing for us always seems to be more about eating the local foods than anything else. This tour was perfect as it allowed us the opportunity to walk, get to know the city and eat, eat, eat! Our tour guide Pablo was very friendly and knowledgeable and helped to facilitate easy conversation among our group. The pace of the tour was great allowing us to space out our meals and stay comfortable! This was important as the portion sizes were larger than we had expected!

Our tour guide Jenna was great! She knew a lot about the area and did a great job of entertaining us and educating us on our surroundings. She gave us some good tips for other good restaurants in the area as well that pertain to our interests so I am excited to experience some of those.

As far as the food, it was good for the most part, but could have been better. Our first stop offered a nice pasta dish that was a good light beginning to the day. Our second stop, was BY FAR the best food of the day had some delicious ribs, coleslaw and fried green tomatoes. Did I mention they were great! Our final stop I was not too impressed with. I am from the south and love shrimp and grits, but I found the shrimp to be overcooked and chewy along with the bits of ham in the grits. That was a disappointment. Finally, we stopped at a bakery. I got a large cupcake (Double chocolate) and my husband got two mini carrot cake cupcakes. We split mine and shared his two. I have to say the double chocolate was stale, and hard to eat without something to drink, although his mini carrot cake was delicious. Depends on whether you get them fresh or not I suppose. Altogether a pretty good tour. And again, Jenna was a pleasure to be around.

We just loved the tour, the guide, the restaurant choices, and the company. Our group was super small: me, my college freshman (son) and two others from Colorado. It was so fortuitous that I received my BS Degree from a school in Colorado as did one of our tour-mates. We enjoyed the fact we had a good bit in common. The group was the perfect size for discussions on the history of the area and eating establishments provided by the tour guide and time for getting to know each other. We laughed, shared stories and information about what we knew of the history, and felt like it was a time quite well spent. In addition, our tour guide was Terry and he couldn't have been nicer or more knowledgeable of the area. We enjoyed every moment and it helped that we had a beautiful day to spend so much time outside. I will certainly recommend this to anyone visiting DC or for those who live in the tri-state area. We are already planning our next outing for when our out of town guests visit. Many thanks.

Our tour guide was great. He was very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy walking us around. This tour only had four stops, which made me a little disappointed. However, I was surprised at the portions that we received, they were a lot larger than I am used to on a food tour and probably why we only hit four places. I would have been stuffed if we went to any more! All the food was very tasty. This trip included a beer tasting as well, which was a pleasant surprise. All in all, I highly recommend this tour.

I am new to the city, and my best friend was visiting from Hawaii so we decided to do something that would allow us to see a little more than just one restaurant. The restaurant choices were great - all different feels and the food was good and a good variety. I will definitely go back to those places. Our guide was a little strange but the group was good. There were 6 of us in our 20s and 30s and we all got along great! I'd love to do another one of these tours in a different place!

The tour was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and I was surprised how she was able to get us to each restaurant right on time. She made sure any dietary needs were taken care of in advance. I was shocked at how much food each restaurant provided and how delicious it was. We had a great time and recommend it to anyone who likes history and food.

The food and locations were great. I would've enjoyed hearing more historical facts while we were eating. Knowing the history of the places we ate would've been great too. Not just the current restaurant but the history of the building.

Tour was ok. Wouldn't recommend it. Had to wait 10 minutes after getting seated for the first meal and 15 minutes at the second restaurant for a table, though the guide called ahead. Half of the dishes were seafood. I don't eat seafood. It would have been fine as a $30 tour, not a $60 one. Tour guide was knowledgeable.

Becky was an awesome tour guide - personable and very knowledgeable about the history of Alexandria. The food was great but I felt there were too many extremely rich foods served to us back to back. By the 2nd stop, my friend and I couldn't eat another bite. It started with spinach ravioli in a very heavy cream sauce, the next stop included extremely rich, thick carrot soup and a mac and cheese dish. They were all delicious but it was just too much rich, heavy food in a short period of time. The jelly cake at the end was nothing to get excited about, but that was fine because we were stuffed. I highly recommend adjusting the types of foods served in order for guests to be able to enjoy every stop. Other than that, a fun day.

Our guide, Chris, was very knowledgeable, friendly, charming, and relaxed. The food we got at the four restaurants was much more than we had expected; we were stuffed! The food was excellent. I would recommend you take this tour at the beginning of your trip; it gives you the lay of the land and you can decide where you would like to go back to, etc. The waiters and waitresses at the restaurants were also fantastic.
