Perfect experience! Nick was a great Guide, who focused on exactly what I wanted, by contacting me around a week prior to the experience to tailor the tour exactly to my needs. The food was really good and the stories he was telling about DC were nothing you could hear at a regular tourist tour. An advantage is that tours can be altered very flexibly.

This is a very cool tour with awesome local restaurants and interesting Georgetown history. The tour company owners have a great business model where they support local businesses and give back to the community. The restaurants also are great about also supporting the local community.
