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.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate vegan diets or dairy allergies on this 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.

A great tour

It was our second tour in Georgetown and we were thrilled again how much we saw, learned and got good food. We had 5 stations, which we had never seen before. 3 or 4 are usual. There were 4 stops to sit incl. Toilet and an alcoholic drink. Allergies were taken into account individually and a great deal of flexibility was shown in this regard. The organizer Carpe Diem shows social responsibility, has great guides and is highly recommended. Our guide was called Stefan and had an inexhaustible supply of knowledge. My husband doesn't like to walk around for 3 hours, but even he was enthusiastic and will come back anytime. There were 2 sweet stops, donut and french. Tartlets, Vietnamese (sandwich,) Arabic (falafel) and green fried tomatoes in Martin's tavern, a family restaurant where the presidents went in and out. A great atmosphere!
