Great Fun and Food!

Our group of old college friends met in Annapolis for a reunion and decided a food tour would be a fun way to see some of the city. It was! We loved all the food stops as well as the walk through the city streets. The tour lasted about 3 1/2 hrs and it was a lot of walking, but the food stops give you breaks. We had our own private group which made the tour very even more fun. Our guide was wonderful and made sure that any special dietary needs were accommodated. This is a great way to get acquainted with a city!

Annapolis Up Close and Personal

The pace of the tour was exactly right. Carolyn, our guide, accommodated her pace to slower guests but it didn't hold us up from any of the points of interest she wanted us to see.

The various stops that did include tastings were well planned and spaced through the tour. Her ability to use her cell phone to inform each location of our impending arrival(s) certainly expedited our time. Also, she made every effort to accommodate a couple of allergies on some of our party.

All in all, a great tour, a great, well informed guide.

Her enthusiasm was infectious and made it a wonderful afternoon.

I'd recommend the whole experience to anyone.

Great food - a little heavy on the history!

Two of my girlfriends and I decided on a weekend getaway to Annapolis! I had never been and was excited to experience the food scene and get some history of the town. We were hoping that the restaurants would somehow intertwine with the history, but not so much. Overall, it was a great time and all of the food was amazing! Carol, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic and truly made the tour a fun experience. Participating in the tour once was enough, but we'll definitely be revisiting the restaurants in future visits to Annapolis!

If you happen to be in Annapolis there is one thing you cannot miss - it is this tour.

You will "feed" both your mind and your stomach, you will enjoy every minute of it!

And if you are lucky, then your guide will be Sam and you will get even more excitement

From the tour because meeting Sam will add some spice to the tour. Sam is not only very nice but very knowlegible and she not only provide you with very interesting information but also answer any of your questions. So, are you home yet? Pack you bags and go to Annapolis to take this tour!

food & guide great, restaurant extra touch missing

Why take a food tour? Perhaps you'll get a special dish not on the menu or be personally greeted by an owner/host/chef explaining what makes their restaurant and food unique. Neither happened on this tour. Our enthusiastic guide wove an interesting story of Annapolis history and architecture. And the variety and qualify of the food was excellent. But the lack of any extra touch from restaurants hosting a food tour was unexpected and missed.

Perfect start to our trip

It was our first visit to Annapolis and got to town around noon. We met our guide Sam for the 1pm food tour. She is very knowledgeable of the area and history. Each stop provided a delicious treat and was perfectly timed out so there was never a wait. The flatbread pizza at our first stop ended up being my wife's favorite food on our trip. The crab bisque and shrimp was my favorite. The ice cream stop at the end was the perfect cherry on top of a great afternoon. Sam had a great personality, answered many questions, and facilitated interesting conversation. It was the perfect was to begin our vacation, because we were comfortable on navigating all the streets and gave us ideas for future places to visit.

A great afternoon - thank you!

Sam from Annapolis Food Tours led our group (8 ladies on a bachelorette weekend) on a fantastic (and delicious!) tour through downtown Annapolis. She was enthusiastic, knowledgable, and fun, leading us through Annapolis's most notable historical sites and into some wonderful restaurants with a great mix of classic Maryland fare and more modern dishes.

I should also add that on the day of our tour, there was police activity downtown, right in the middle of our projected tour route, which (luckily) cleared by the start of our tour. Both Sam and Molly (from the DC office) went out of their way to accommodate and work around the disruption and communicated quickly and clearly with our group to ensure we had a wonderful tour experience, including offering us a chance to reschedule or get a refund up until the very last minute. We're so glad we didn't have to take them up on that, but really appreciated their commitment to making sure we had a great afternoon. It was definitely a highlight of our weekend, and I would recommend this tour to anyone with a few hours to spare in Annapolis.

Great food and info

We had a fabulous tour with Caroline. Our group was small which allowed for questions and lots of discussion. Caroline is a wealth of info and includes a lot of info not found in history books...which made Annapolis come alive for us. The food tour started with a wonderful, albeit unusual, pizza which was wonderful. I even tried the oyster shooters which weren't bad at all. We had wonderful seafood and tacos, and ended the day with ice cream. Our bellies were full of great food, and our minds were full of interesting facts from a bygone era.
