I did the Georgetown tour. We had a group of six plus the guide. The tour was 3.5 hours and made 4 stops, 3 savory and 1 dessert. Portions were big considering we had three savory stops. Our guide Alisa was friendly and shared lots of interesting info about the neighborhood and the restaurants we visited. Great time.

Had a great time experiencing all the different sites and four restaurants in Alexandria. Our tour guide, Terry, was very knowledgeable about Old Town history and current happenings in the city. The food was excellent. A must-do while in Alexandria.

The tour folks picked some great restaurants for us to try: Italian, BBQ, Lebanese and a bakery. We all agreed that the Italian restaurant had the best food with a delicate pasta and nutmeg infused white sauce. Mmmm Unfortunately, on the day of our tour the weather was hot and humid.

After thoroughly enjoying tours in Chicago and New York, I looked forward to this one. Disappointing...very little history, only 4 stops, too long at each stop with awkward silences. More stops with less food at each is much better.
