What you'll do

You’ve seen the major sites in Washington DC — the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian Museums and the thought-provoking memorials — but did you ever wonder about the people who built this great city? Join us on a foodie tour of H Street, the neighborhood that housed the builders and artisans who built the city and made it come to life.

After introducing ourselves at the meeting point, we kick off the tour with a delicious snack from a local grocery store. Then we head to a cafe with freshly roasted, in-house coffee, where we may even meet the unofficial “Mayor of H St”!

We continue to make a loop around the H Street Corridor, visiting restaurants, markets, churches, and historic sites. Our foodie stops vary depending on what is available that day but we can promise a culinary rollercoaster ride through many of DC’s most authentic and delicious neighborhood spots.

Along the way, you’ll hear some amazing stories about the people who used to live and work in this district, learn how food has played a big part in bringing the community together and taste for yourself why DC’s food scene is enjoying a much-deserved resurgence.

After we have filled you up with some of the best food in the city, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the most from your stay in Washington DC.

Julianna is very friendly and she knows a lot about the city. The four restaurants are excellent representations of the city’s varied food. Our time was casual and fun.

Book this now!! I booked this private excursion for my group of friends and it was certainly worth every single dollar spent. Our guide Cortland was prompt and ready to go with a little history as soon as we stepped out of the train station. The walk was far but as a true tourist interested in the history of my surroundings it wasn’t too long or challenging at all. The places we stopped to eat were all amazing and very local. He even suggested we try the city’s famous mambo sauce before we left and that was dope. My group was very inquisitive and he had answers to all our questions. It’s a great idea that we walk far then take the trolley back to the meeting space. I’d definitely book this experience again and request the same guide if I decided to go back with family. Thanks again!! Oh yea, my friend was celebrating a birthday and he even surprised her with a special treat at one of the locations.

I had a wonderful time! We ate so much, I had to take the last sampling home with me. We got plenty to drink, too. Juliana was our guide. She was very knowledgeable about the DC culture, and other cultures abroad.

Pre trip communication was awesome, where to meet was clear, contact info in case of was clear, guides name was identified. I think there should be some caveat about how much walking is involved in this trip as it is more than in any other food tour that I have taken. The food choices were awesome. Very iconic DC and very diverse. Would have been better to have the beverage stop between the heavier meals type stops but locationally understand the stop order. I have already been back to one of the locations that I was introduced to. Our guide, Julianna was AMAZING. I loved her enthusiasm, I loved the personal stories that she shared and I loved how personable and down to earth she was and the casual vibe of the tour was wonderful. I highly recommend this tour.

Juliana was a great tour guide with exciting stories, genuine personality and friendly conversation! Our four food stops provided great insights to DC culture. The portions were thicc (with two c’s like Juliana likes to say)! I recommend carving out an hour after the tour just to digest. Some stops didn’t have a drink to go with them so make sure to bring a bottle water.
