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)

Our tour guide Carolyn was very friendly and knowledgeable. She took time on the tour to get to know each party within the tour group.

The website should really be updated. We only actually ate 2 things that were on the website's list. What to ammend: Housemade sangria, craft beers, high tea including caramel poundcake, and premium specialty coffee. Nothing was mentioned about the locale which our forefathers frequented (as mentioned on the website). Also, this listing leads one to believe that specialty drinks (sangria, beer) will be included, yet the only actual drink we were offered for our money was water. One shot of beer arrived with the oyster shooter and it was NOT a craft beer, just Natty Boh.

I enjoyed the tour. A current website is really key to honest salesmanship and satisfied customers.

we did not go to the places I expected, except Reynold's Tavern. I don't think a oyster shooter is a good choice there. My guess is many people don't want that. Something crab would be good. The other stops were excellent. There was only 2 on our tour, which the guide really tried to cancel. Bad news. If we can't cancel, why do you think you can?

Restaurant tour-not food tour

It was a history and restaurant tour-not a food tour. Guide explained history of Annapolis-but did not comment on the waterfront history or anything about the fishing industry or seafood.. Food was very good, but no details about what kind of food and why it was chosen to represent Annapolis. Too much personal family info

Our tour was fabulous both food-wise and with our tour guide, Carolyn, who was a wonderful historical resource and great fun! The restaurants selected were varied and prompt with service. The day was rainy and cold so each stop gave us a chance to warm up and dry off! The tastings were ample so my advice is: go hungry!

Awesome Annapolis Food Tour

My husband and I chose to take the Annapolis food tour after seeing how quickly the tour consistently sold out (even during the winter months) on the Zerve Web site.

We enjoyed the following about the tour:

+Great information about Annapolis (its history including details about the city's ghosts, restaurants, and lodging)

+Our tour guide Carolyn who was enthusiastic and engaging

+Tasty food choices (My personal favorites were the she-crab soup and shrimp as well as the Smith Island Cake.)

+Variety of drinks (Most of the food tours in which I participated only offer water and 1 other beverage; this tour had soda, beer, and cocktails.)

The following could be improved:

-Tour Web site (The site should be updated because a few of the stops and foods listed were not on the tour.)

-Communication with the main office (My spouse and I had to contact the office because we had parked at a different garage. The office contact had difficulty giving us directions and the tour guide's contact information.)

-More or different options at 1-2 stops (One restaurant only served a pasta dish which wasn't very unique, and another stop served only the oyster shooter which was met with mixed reviews.)

Loved this tour. Delicious food and drink pairings mixed with guides knowledge of the area and it's history. Loved her stories, loved meeting owners of restaurants and their chefs. Wonder experience. Highly
