    Great time and loved that the guide was an architect and could speak in architectural terms. The food was good, the only exceptional thing we ate was the ravioli.
    We were very disappointed in the Dupont Circle Food Tour. There were 6 of us that booked this tour, and the restaurants and information were quite disappointing. First we thought we would be taken to great restaurants that actually have some history or roots in Dupont Circle. What we got was 2 restaurants in hotels with very unsatisfactory food, and a Mediterranean store where we tasted olive oil and felt pressured to buy stuff. The only saving grace was the last Jewish deli that was really good and actually had Dupont Circle roots. When we were taken to these places, we were seated and given a small plate of food and that is it. The guide did not inform us of why this particular food or restaurant was chosen. In-between places we were given some history, but not much and you could barely hear him as it was loud, and most of the time he never faced us. If we are to purchase these tours I would expect a little more knowledge and restaurants that have some significant history in the city. We would not do this again nor recommend it to anyone. Very disappointed as the other 4 people we were with are friends that I asked to come on this tour. Thank you.
