Great Deal

For the price this really is a good deal. You get to taste a bunch of different things for a nominal fee. Everything seemed to fit perfectly from one place to another. At times it was a bit rushed because we were a little behind schedule, but still nothing bad to say about this experience.

Perfect experience

Tour guide was wonderful and added in a lot of fun historic details we would never know and weve lived in Maryland forever. The restaurants were a nice variety and the food was fun, if not always what I would have ordered for myself. Proud that I did my first ever oyster shooter! ( probably my last, but it was still an experience)

Great date--and we learned something, too!

My fiance and I celebrated our 2-year anniversary in Annapolis. I was looking for something unique for us to do. We took the Walking and Food Tour and had our own personal docent. What a lovely tour it was and the food was very tasty. Our guide was personable, entertaining, and very knowledgable. It was a perfect day for a tour and very much worth the price! The only thing that would have made it more perfect would be to add is a pint of grog at the end!

My wife and I spent the weekend in Annapolis in Nov. 2009. We decided to learn about the city and eat some food as well. The tour was very informative and fun. The leader, Susan was fantastic and very personable and fun. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to learn some neat things about Annapolis history and just have a fun experience.

The tour guide did a great job of representing the people of the colonial era while also really relating to each and every participant in the tour. The amount of food was good- not too much, not too little and a good variety. Each of the shop and restaurant owners were friendly and happy to see us and share some history, too.

Our guide, Lauren was wonderful. La Picolla Roma was my favorite.. I just loved how the owner, Mark stayed at our table while we tasted. I can't wait to go back. The food was awesome!

A Beautiful Delicious Day Out!

I met 6 or 7 friends for the tour and we all agreed that it was delightful! We learned so much about the colonial days in Annapolis while enjoying some excellent samples of a variety of dishes. The food was perfectly ample - almost too much! Since my distant cousin lives in and gives tours of Sands House, and many of my ancestors had ties to Annapolis, there was an extra personal charm for me.

Exceeded expectations, excellent value

Highly recommend to others. The quality of the tour was largely due to our guide, who was top-notch and courteous, not a dull moment on the entire tour. My wife and myself (form PA) were joined by another couple (from GA) and our guide (5 total in group). Did not feel rushed at any time on the tour. Immediately impressed with warm reception by guide at meeting place, the audio receiver and earpiece provided (necessity when walking thru town), courtesy bottled water and coffee. Tour office surervisor checked two times to make sure everyone was satisfied. Each destination was ready for our arrival and all involved were very friendly and open to questions. Food / drink samples at various eating establishments were great. We returned to Irish restaurant across from State House for lunch following day. Will return to restaurant at Maryland Inn again in future for popovers. Two suggestions for improvement: 1) Provide larger bag at beginning of tour to hold bottled water and misc. trinkets provided by restuarants along the tour; and, 2) add color coded depiction of historic landmark plaques on map handout with key / legend to show time period. In the words of our guide, Marco, all of the above Tis True, Tis True!

Perfect Balance!

A three hour historical walking tour may sound intimidating, but the frequent stops in air-conditioned restaurants broke up the tour quite nicely. The guide was informative and the historical tidbits were very interesting. And the food part was a win for all -- while the restaurants slow down in the mid-afternoon, we roll in. It's a great, un-rushed atmosphere. The description reads that the cumulative food is roughly equal to a "light lunch"... maybe for a 300-pound gorilla! We left too full to eat dinner that night... and that's a good thing in my book.
