Too long and too expensive

My boyfriend and I took this tour while visiting my brother and sister-in-law who live in DC. The four of us were excited for it. While the food we ate was good, we ultimately all agreed that the tour was too long with not enough food for the price. I think the tour could have been 2.5 hours long and at least $25 cheaper (with the same food stops), and it would have been a better experience.
Good day, enjoyable

Tour guide Jennifer was VERY knowledgeable! Food served at tapas restaurant really tasty. Pop tarts were fun. Last stop at Central American restaurant not up to the Jennifer’s description; disappointed.
Good to see local neighborhoods

The food was good but not great. The tour guide was timely, informative, and helpful. It was good to see some of the neighborhoods and businesses in the downtown area.
Worth it!

The food was good and our guide Robert was very knowledgeable about the DC area! I want to do the Alexandria tour with Robert. A gal in our group had Robert for that tour in August and loved it!
Capitol Hill Food Tour is a delight!

My wife bought me the tour for my 50th birthday and there were 8 of us (4 couples) that went together. I wasn't sure how my guy friends would like it, but they each reported different aspects that they truly enjoyed. It was a great time with friends. Our tour guide, Paige, was very knowledgeable of the area and of the history of Capitol Hill. I learned a lot. The neighborhood was very interesting from an architectural standpoint and the diversity of food offerings was amazing. My favorite food of the whole tour was at the Tapas restaurant; we had this unbelievably tender pork shoulder. My favorite restaurant of the day was the Salvadoran restaurant; plaintains, fried yucca, tender steak, all amazing. At each restaurant there was plenty of food. I think if there was one wish I had to make the tour better was to have more interaction with our restaurant hosts. I would love to have heard more of their stories and to tell us more about the food itself. Another highlight which wasn't on the tour but was very easy to access was Eastern Market. Such a cool setup with a combination of indoor and outdoor food, art, musicians, etc. I definitely enjoyed being able to see a part of DC that I didn't know well. Overall a great day!
