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

The other couple didn't show up so we ended up with a private tour. Jessica was great! Lots of interesting stories and historical info that I had never heard before. Best of all, we visited some GORGEOUS old bars that we never would have thought to visit otherwise. Definitely recommend!

We had a great time!! Food tastings were full serving/full meal. You will not end the tour hungry. Our guide Ann was very knowledgeable. Lots of interesting history about Georgetown and some of the local establishments. Would definitely recommend this tour.

This is a yearly tradition for my family and as always it was a blast! We had a wonderful time!!!! Bottomless mimosas are really bottomless!!!! And the food was on point!

The server Pedro was excellent and did a great job checking with us thru the night. The food was good also which I was surprised at, I would recommend this dinner cruise!
