This tour was a wonderful combination of history and exploring local eateries. Our delightful tour guide, Mary, provided us the opportunity to meet many of the eateries' owners and hear their background stories, which made the delicious food even better. We also enjoyed the combination of walking through the area learning about its history, and sitting to enjoy the food. Mary did an excellent job ensuring we could all hear what she was saying and answering all of our questions. We met some wonderful people on our tour and will definitely return to Alexandria!

This tour was awesome! Emma, our tour guide, took us on a great walking history tour of Old Town Alexandria. She was extremely knowledgeable and told us many facts about the area as well as fun stories. The most enjoyable walk was broken up by breaks at area restaurants where we were served delicious food that gave us a sampling of some of the unique offerings of Alexandria. I highly recommend this tour!

Disappointing and disorganized

We travel for business 2-4 times a year and always book 1 or more food tours. We have greatly enjoyed every tour we've booked thru Viator until this one. Although very nice, the tour guide seemed a bit disorganized and inattentive to details at food stops which left us having to ask for silverware, beverage, etc. The tour went long so that we were only able to eat at 3 of the 5 scheduled stops. The ribs and craft beer offered at our 2nd stop was fabulous, the other two were not. There was too much walking without any kind of interest between stops and the time at the food stops seemed rushed. Old Town Alexandria is quite beautiful yet we either passed by "points of interest" without any input from the guide or looked from afar during other "points of interest". The tour is fairly new so hopefully modifications will be made to make it more enjoyable.
