This is a very cool tour with awesome local restaurants and interesting Georgetown history. The tour company owners have a great business model where they support local businesses and give back to the community. The restaurants also are great about also supporting the local community.

Our guide Anne was excellent! She taught us some Georgetown history while feeding us local based foods. My favorite was the scrumptious falafel and second favorite was a tie between the crème brûlée and meatloaf with a mushroom sauce. Interesting history hearing about Mary Meyer, teacher Mary and visiting the various Kennedy ex-residences. Overall, a fantastic day, thanks to Anne. The weather also cooperated, lol. This is a must do tour
