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.

One Disappointment

LOVED the tour, the guide, and the food...HOWEVER...after the website mentioned POPOVERS 3 times with photos of POPOVERS, I was disappointed when we did NOT go the The Maryland Inn and get the POPOVERS that were on the website. Everything was wonderful, but knowing about the POPOVERS gave me the feeling that something was left out.

Marc Lucas of Piccolo Roma was the best host to the group,,,charming!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, we're still talking about it and telling our friends to check it out. The tour guide(we forgot her name.) Was WONDERFUL. Very knowledgable and the food was good. We went to 5 different restaurants.

Great intro to Annapolis with local restaurants

Our guide, Julia, a native, was informative and friendly. Loved Annapolis history and great food. While we love seafood, oyster shooters were a disappointment, compared to more elegant fare from other highlighted restaurants. You should offer food to guide, we felt guilty eating without her.

Jillian did a great job as tour guide.

Having Jillian as a tour guide made this a great experience. Her knowledge of Annapolis and of the food is tremendous. She interacted very easily with the owners and operators at each establishment as well as being very considerate to the needs of her group. Really worth doing many times.

Excellent orientation to Annap Food & History

This tour was a well balanced introduction to Annapolis history flavored with a delightful mix of cuisine available there. I LOVED the anecdote of "gossip".. the context of Annapolis' emergence and decline as a port.. and the Middleton tavern story.. and the "communal bakery" prohibiting ovens in homes... that's just a smattering!

The cuisine... Piccolla Roma.. and Mark's description of the food and tour of available accomodations... what a way to tour the boat show! All of the restaurants were welcoming and a special "local flavor": was the "Smith Island Cake" at the Red Red Wine Bar... along with it's story of course.

Our tour guide was well informed, set a pace for a varied group in terms of speed in walking and information and responded to questions in a delightfully informed and professional manner.

I will "do the tour" again!
