Give back to the DC Community

About Us

It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting for the weekend or planning a special event with friends; our itineraries are designed to make you feel more like travelers discovering a new city than Segway-riding tourists being herded like cattle. We focus on local, community-driven restaurants whose food isn’t only delicious; but also reflects the city’s dynamic culture. Combine good eats with discovering cool facts about the city’s evolving music scene and ever-changing architecture, and you’ve got yourself quite a perfect day.

"I have lived in the U Street area for 4 years, and am a self-professed foodie, but even still, learned SO much about my neighborhood and the places we stopped at for tastings!"

- Aparna Krishnamoorthy

"A nice feature of this socially responsible team is that they give a portion of each tour to Bread for the City, a local food charity."

- Johanna Mendelson Forman

"In speaking to Stefan and Mary at the end of the tour, one thing is evident: they are all about sharing the local DC experience with visitors and locals alike."
