Highly Recommend

I highly recommend the food tour to anyone visiting the Annapolis area. It was the best walking/history tour I have ever taken. The frequent stops in air conditioned restaurants were lovely in the summer heat. The tour was conducted at a nice pace and was very informative. Best of all, the food was spectacular!

Very nice overall

Liked the restaurants visited but wish it wasn't assumed that we would enjoy alcoholic drinks with our food since we are non-drinkers. The history part of the tour was informative but some may find it boring.

Great way to see the city

This tour is a great way to see the city, inside and out. The tour takes you through the historic neighborhoods of Annapolis and into some great restaurants. Although I did not like all of the places we visited, it was still a good tour that moved along efficiently.

Our tour guide Julia was very knowledgeable, fun and the food was very plentiful, great variety and delicious. The stops were well organized and everything went well. Have already recommended it to a friend.

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.

Pros and Cons

My wife and I enjoy Annapolis and love to eat. We thought a food tour would be fun and different. Our tour guide, a chef, was great, and endured one of the hottest days of the year. More than half of our 3.5 hours was spent walking and listening to her talk about history. I was surprised and wished more time had been spent eating. For $50 (or so) the value is consistent with the experience. Like other reviewers as far back as May, we had the same restaurants and same dishes: popovers at Treaty of Paris (not good, should be cut); sangria, beef carpaccio, and bruschetta at Piccola Roma (very good); duck confit pasta at Harry Brown's (also good); coconut shrimp and cream of crab soup at Federal House (plus a local beer!); oyster shooter at Middleton Tavern (too much cocktail sauce, and terrible beer); and ice cream at Annapolis Ice Cream Company (lots of flavors to choose from). I would be willing to pay a bit more for higher quality food.

Loved the history, met some great people. Things were ordered well, good amount of walking, and got to see most of downtown Annapolis while we were at it. A great way to spend an afternoon if you live anyhere close.

Do not miss this one!

we have a great tour with Jillian. She is a history teacher who was very enthusiastic and informative. The group size was perfect and we were thrilled & impressed with the restaurants we visited. the food was delicious and the hosts at each restaurant were attentive and gracious. although every restaurant we visited was wonderful, Our favorite restaurant to visit was Piccola Roma. Here the owner Mark spent an extended amount of time with us explaining the history of the restaurant, the art work, the special drinks paired with the artwork, the food- his passion for his craft was evident. We made friends, had fun and enjoyed mouth watering foods. I can't talk about it anymore- my stomach is growling!

great fun and food

I was concerned with a lot of walking in the heat but it was well spaced out. Places we ate at were friendly and the food was excellent. We actually went back to two of them later in our visit to dine. The group we were with really clicked which made it even more enjoyable. I would do it again.
