What is a Carpe DC Food Tour Anyway?

Whether you have museum-fatigue or want a deeper look at your local community, Carpe DC Food Tours will get you off the beaten path to discover the new eats, fascinating culture and rich history behind the district’s iconic neighborhoods.

We’re not your typical umbrella-toting march through the National Mall.  Our tours have been thoughtfully curated from neighborhood and restaurant selection to delicious food and alcohol tastings as well as the dynamic culture and historic landmarks that all combined to tell the story of these eclectic neighborhoods through food.

Not only will you try a number of mouth-watering tastings from locally-owned restaurants, you’ll get an inside look at where DC’s been and where it’s going. You will also be a part of DC’s first one-for-one food tour, where a portion of your ticket purchase goes to feed district residents in need for a day.

So if you can’t already tell, we at Carpe DC love this community and are proud to support it and show it off. Come let us show you why!
