Fabulous Afternoon

We enjoyed a fabulous afternoon with the Historic Annapolis Food tour. Our guide, Carolyn, was excellent and provided a spice of humor:) Our restaurant stops were among the cream of the crop in downtown Annapolis! It was a sunny and beautiful afternoon and we enjoyed the start at St. Anne's Church. Then on to Piccola Roma, where Mark (owner) shared his wit and wisdom about the food and history...loved it! Enjoyed the other stops- many historic and interesting, and the many photo ops as well (food stops - Harry Browne-great duck; Middleton Tavern-awesome oyster shooters; Federal House-amazing cream of crab soup; Red Red Wine Bar-famous Smith Island, Maryland State Cake). Overall would definitely recommend this tour, as it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon in Annapolis!!

Great food, wonderful town

Tour made five stops, four at restaurants with roots in local history and one with just good food. All restaurants were relatively upscale, with offerings highlighted by tastes of Maryland seafood (oyster shooters, cream of crab soup) and shots of sangria and beer. But maybe the best part was wandering around Annapolis’ historic district, not as far as the Naval Academy but past the Capitol Building, waterfront, a haunted house, and Main Street. Tour guide had many great stories, and even as a quasi-local (Silver Spring) I found out that Annapolis has a lot more going for it than I ever imagined.

Our guide was so knowledgeable that it was almost too much information to digest along with the fabulous food..

Our guide Carolyn was superb and kept it very informative and lively! Our only discomfort was some of the restaurants did not serve her while the rest of us ate. That was a little uncomfortable for us. It would have been better if the facility also served her.

This tour exceeded my expectations!

So enjoyable and full of all things worth knowing about Annapolis was our tour guide, Carolyn that I would like to repeat this tour with every relative or friend who comes to visit with me. What a wonderful way to tour Annapolis! As, a teetotaler (and there were a few of us), what little I gave up took nothing valuable away from my experience. For the cost of my ticket I was provided me with the perfect day: Wonderful food, riveting historical facts, a pleasant amount of fresh air and walking, and good people with whom to enjoy the experience. I hope this company expands (as they so richly deserve to do) so they will someday be able to include tours on the weekdays. I have always had a fairly good time visiting Annapolis. But never, ever, before have had I enjoyed it this much! In addition to retaking this tour, I would very much like to also take their tours of Washington D.C. and Baltimore whenever I want to take someone to lunch in an extra special way.

Very interesting and delicious afternoon

The Historic Annapolis Food tour was a wonderful way to learn about the history of Annapolis and also a way to try several of the local specialties at a variety of restaurants. Our guide Carolyn was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We did not expect to have such fine dining on our tour as the food was excellent. The oyster shooters were a never before tired highlight for me which I will definitely have again. Highly recommended tour for adults.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Annapolis is a delightful town. If I had one critisim it would be that most of the food was at the end of the tour, it might have been nicer to have had some of the culinary stops a little sooner but that might not have been convenient for the restaurants I will look for a culinary tour everytime I visit a large city. .

Lots of history

The tour would be better if done later in the afternoon, e.g. 3pm. It would have been nice if the owner of the Italian restaurant was available to talk to the group. The Middletown Tavern was a disappointment. We were rushed in & out, the room was hot, & there should have been an alternative for the oyster shooter. Otherwise, the restaurants were fine. The tour guide walked very fast, usually way ahead of the group. It would have been nice if she walked with different members of the group as we went from restaurant to restaurant.

First Historic Food tour I've been on. Will definitely recommend to others. Will also go on other food tours when travelling. Tour guide Carolyn was delightful. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Annapolis.
