What you'll do

Meet your guide and the rest of the group outside your first restaurant stop where you’ll learn what to expect during the tour. After enjoying your first tasting, walk with your guide through the historic streets of Old Town, learning the stories that make this iconic neighborhood what it is today.

Visit four locally owned restaurants for delicious Old Town classics and some new flavors. Between stops you’ll learn about the evolution of the neighborhood, from the role played during the founding of the country, to the Civil Rights Movement, to modern day.

End the Old Town Alexandria tour at the last restaurant for a sweet treat, where your guide will be happy to assist in helping you find your way to your next activity.

In addition to the carefully selected tastings and fascinating history, your experience includes custom photos of your tour as well as a recommendations resource for some of our other favorite locals spots.

I have a passion for making the world a smaller place by connecting people to community through stories, culture and of course, food!

My husband, Stefan, and I love to travel and always enjoy learning about where we are by tasting the food that makes that area unique. We decided that nothing would be better than sharing the rich history of our home city of DC than by developing tours that allow our guests to learn about different neighborhoods and their stories through food!

I'm also a mom of two! My daughter's first “real” food was Japanese ramen in Okinawa, Japan.

We absolutely loved this experience! Mary was so great, she dealt with all of our questions and curiosity like a pro. She was very personable and made the walk enjoyable even in the rain. The history and stories were so intriguing. Lastly, the food was AMAZING! I could not have asked for a better way to explore Old Town and try some local foods!
