Georgetown Food Tour

Our Georgetown Food Tour takes you to the historic yet chic charm of Georgetown, an area that pre-dated Washington DC.

You will be transported on this 3.5 hour Food Tour across 250+ years of history, and enjoy flavors closely connected to the Northwest DC neighborhood.

Long before it became popular by the Kennedys and the home of high end retail and fashion, Georgetown was a working class port city pre-dating the Federal City of Washington DC. Its roots are still very much alive and can be seen in the red brick townhomes, and turn of the century factories that are found throughout the area.

The Food Tour will bring together progressive, high end cuisine, with long standing DC institutions. From restaurants and shops running before prohibition, to swanky hotspots, this Food Tour brings together some of the best this area has to offer.

We will finish up our journey by crossing the historic C&O canal and enjoying a sweet ending and drink from a bakery that originated as a printing house.

Your Food Tour may include the following specialties:

  • Authentic southern French cuisine from a 30-year-old family run cafe
  • Modern Italian-American
  • Artisanal meat sampler
  • Mediterranean tapas at an ultra-chic restaurant
  • Critically acclaimed Korean cuisine
  • Hand crafted beverages
  • Desserts from Washington DC's favorite new bakery

We recommend you eating a light brunch before the tour rather than lunch. The dishes you will try throughout the Georgetown Food Tour are both small meals and traditional tastings. We want you to be able to experience the best each restaurant has to offer. Like our other Food Tours, you will not need dinner after the tour.

Georgetown Food Tour Reviews

“Lots of fun! Whether you're local or from out of town you'll enjoy the food and the people on the tour. ”

Mkallas, Sept 2, 2012

“I loved this food tour. I've never been on one, but I'm already scheduled for three more, and I'm planning on three after that -- in D.C. alone. It's a nice combination of sampling local food and learning the history of the location, which being into history just added to the tour. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly! I plan on recommending this to everyone I know in the D.C. are or who plan on visiting! ”

“This was our fourth DC Metro Food Tour. We saved Georgetown for last and so glad we did! The stories were great and the food as usual was excellent and a really cool selection. I loved the vegetarian place with the tacos”
